OK, I’m back after an epic day of traveling that was so comically bad, I briefly forgot I was returning from just Augusta, Ga., and not the other side of the world.
The Masters “was fun, if slightly anticlimactic”:http://golf.lohudblogs.com/2008/04/13/some-final-thoughts/. And I’ll admit: at around 7 p.m. Sunday, when Game 3 was about to start and I was sitting down to write about “the triumph of that needle-moving superstar, Trevor Immelman”:http://www.thnt.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080414/SPORTS01/804140399/1002, I sent Josh and Carp an e-mail lamenting not being at the Garden. Good friends that they are, both felt the need to kick me when I was down.
But now it’s hockey the rest of the way, and there’s a lot to catch up on. I’ll be at practice for updates, but in the meantime, thanks to reader Brian Holden for sending along this photo of a new “Avery Rules” T-shirt (follow “this link”:http://www.cafepress.com/cp/prod.aspx?p=shopdecayny.254845150 if you’re interested in buying it). It’s nice to see the wheels of American commerce turning so quickly….
It’s good to be back. More in a bit…
