The Return of the Cupcakes

The Cupcakes have returned. For the remainder of the offseason, while news are sparse, the Cupcakes will run once a week. Once the season returns, the Cupcakes will return in their former glory.

    Welcome back Sandie!
    And yes, I would love to see the Avs wear the Nords jersey again; once or twice. They should do it for a game against a Canadien team, maybe the Habs? Or perhaps they could do a preseason game in Quebec.
