Abstract:
In 1997, the New England Whalers hockey team moved south to Raleigh and became the Carolina Hurricanes. Over the following years, the Hurricanes battled low attendance ratings and poor team performance until their first playoff showing in 2001 and peaked when they won the Stanley Cup in 2006. Today, the team faces lower attendance and losing records, but die-hard fans still support them and are optimistic that their team will improve soon.

Abstract:
The tale was perpetuated by Paul Jennewein, who helped to preserve Wilmington’s cultural and spiritual traditions through his column “Along the Cape Fear.” First published in StarNews in 1950, the tall tale contains an element common to legend: a possible foundation of truth. The capture of flounder could have happened during the Great Depression for families not able to afford the customary Christmas turkey or ham.
