New RoughRiders owners

Rumor has it the prospective new owners of the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders were in town Thursday to check out the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena. Sources say you might be surprised by who those new owners will be. The only hint you’ll get from me is the word “flyer.” At any rate, expect the official announcement of the club being sold fairly shortly.

In other matters, Cedar Rapids Kernels General Manager Jack Roeder told me that Los Angeles Angels GM Tony Reagins is expected to come to town over the Labor Day weekend to hand off some sort of check from the Angels for Cedar Rapids flood relief.

Where exactly that money will go hasn’t been determined, though helping rebuild the Boys And Girls Club and/or YMCA are options. So is helping out a specific flood-affected family.

The Kernels wore special pink jerseys for Thursday night’s game, which was part of a cancer awareness promotion, that auctioned off silently auction to benefit Oncology Associates’ “Relay For Life.” The jerseys were sharp, with black pinstripes and sleeves.
