Yesterday marked my last day covering the U.S. Open, and along with “seeing Roger Federer waltz to Grand Slam win No. 12”:http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070910/SPORTS01/709100363/1034/SPORTS, the highlight may have been a shot on the giant screen of Henrik Lundqvist sitting in the stands as well.
It’s pathetic in a way. Through every match there was a constrant stream of A-list celebrities on the video board, from Michael Douglas, to Jake Gyllenhaal to Robin Williams. And yet outside of walking past Catherine Zeta-Jones at one point (she stopped me to say she loved the blog. OK, not really) I was most intrigued by the sight of a goalie I’ll be seeing plenty of in the days and weeks to come.
I even did a quick loop of the Stadium in an effort to find the King, but had no such luck. No matter. Camp officially opens Thursday but my plan is to be there before that, and yes, you can expect us to ramp up our efforts here.
It’s been a long off-season, and you all should be commended for your patience (well, most of you at least). As training camp gets started, I’ll try to outline a little more of what you can expect here, including some new features that will be part of the blog experience as the season gets started
