In addition to a fitting game against the Kings on the one-year anniversary of Sean Avery’s arrival from L.A., today is a chance for those of us in the tri-state area to vote in the presidential primaries.
We will steer clear of politics here on the blog seeing how we argue too much as it is, but I will urge everyone to vote one way or the other today. And I’ll use the same argument I just gave to my 2-year-old when I took him to the polling place just now.
I told him that just like he gets to choose between chicken nuggets and grilled cheese for dinner, we get to choose our president.
“Because in some countries, it’s like they have to eat chicken nuggets every night,” I said.
This was at first a compelling argument to him, although the whole food analogy was quickly complicated when, after we voted, one of the nice old ladies there offered Charlie a cookie.
So there you have it, democracy at its best: You get to choose your party’s nominee, and you might even get a cookie out of the whole deal.
More from the skate in a bit….
