Ah I love a good movie tie-in! Tuesday's press release from the HarbourCats made official the return of last year's coaching staff to the friendly confines of Royal Athletic Park.
In the original, Lucky Day, Dusty Bottoms, and Ned Nederlander were "Up to their necks in Senoritas, Margaritas, Banditos, and Bandits" (that was the movie tag line, if you're still playing along...). In this sequel, Head Coach Dennis Rogers, Co-Head Coach Bob Miller, and Assistant Coach Ben Jackson will be faced with Bloggers, Lagers, Warm Nights, and Wins - or so we hope.
The return of the coaching staff from 2013 should bode well for Victoria fans, as the knowledge and contacts gained from last season here should equate to a bigger talent pool to pull from, and an easier sales pitch to players. It should also provide some consistency for new GM Jim Swanson as well, as he takes to the helm in his first WCL year.

Players will be announced soon, and the train will continue to pick up speed as summer approaches. Stay tuned for more developments in the coming weeks.
