Fronts: Mike Farrell's beauty goal

Mike Farrell's sick short-handed goal was the lede in the Kingston Whig-Standard's Frontenacs game story on Monday — and it is not hard to see why. It was clearly the greatest moment in amateur or professional sports history, and Kingston history, too, since Brady Olsen was skating for the Queen's Golden Gaels.

Please do not pull a Kinger and point out it is ironic some people cheering for Farrell today just a few weeks ago were claiming Brock Higgs would have been in tough to make the Frontenacs, when Higgs was arguably more effective than Farrell during the Kingston Kimco Voyageurs' soul-stirring, life-affirming playoff run last spring. There is being right and being nice, and that was a nice goal. It's all bygones-be-bygones with the Frontenacs off to a 3-2-0 start (3-0 within the Eastern Conference, although two of those wins were over a suspect Niagara IceDogs teams).
