I just wanted to congratulate Joe Furnari, head coach of the Hartford Fire Ants, for being chosen coach of the year. I consider myself very good friends with a number of people in the Fire Ants organization and have had the opportunity to have in depth discussions with them throughout the season as to what they thought had played the biggest part in improving their team in '07-'08 and the 1st thing that always came up was Coach Furnari. The team bought into everything that their coach implemented and their record and overall results proved that. After a tough '06-'07 campaign, the Fire Ants really turned things around this past season and with Coach Furnari behind the bench, I would expect them to further improve in '08-'09. Way to go Joe!
