Whalers going to the dogs

The Ontario Hockey League’s Plymouth Whalers are literally going to the (hot) dogs this weekend.

After hosting the Barrie Colts this Friday night at 7:30 pm at the Compuware Sports Arena, the first-place Whalers will spice up the game with division rival Sarnia Saturday at 7:30 pm by hosting Oscar Meyer Night. The first 240 children 12-and-under coming to the game can purchase hot dogs 75 cents off the normal price.

In addition, Oscar Meyer is bringing the famous Wienermobile to the game. The Wienermobile will be parked outside the Compuware Sports Arena and will be available to fans for inspection and tours before the game.

Plymouth (first place in the OHL’s West Division with a record of 19-17-4-3) completes the weekend Sunday by taking on a dog of another kind – the Mississauga IceDogs at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga. The game can be heard on WSDS 1480-AM starting at 1:45 pm.
