Taking advantage of today’s optional skate, young Charlie (age: 3, shoots: left, passes: infrequently) and I spent our morning with our sticks down at the basketball courts playing street hockey as even younger Will (age: 9 months, shoots: undetermined, crawls: everywhere) napped.
Once in a while Charlie found it amusing to shoot a ball toward the stroller to see if he could wake his brother up. The brother-tormenting part isÂ worrisome, but at least he shoots more than Rozsival.
Anyway, that’s all I have for hockey news so far today. I can’t even tell you who we snagged with our second pick in the fantasy draft since I haven’t checked in, but I will issue a full report on that later.
Update 1:15 p.m.: “Dan Fritsche is in for Patrick Rissmiller tonight”:http://weblogs.newsday.com/sports/hockey/rangers/blog/, where he’ll play the left side with the Korpedo and Ryan Callahan.
Update, 1:51 p.m.: Fantasy update. Maloney and Albert are on the clock, as they have been for the past several hours. Perhaps Maloney is wondering if he can come out of retirement to select himself….
Update, 1:54 p.m.: It’s been noted that I should keep the cheap shots at Dave to a minimum seeing how we occasionally skate together and he’s been known to come in with his elbows high.
Have I mentioned that Dave is the best radio analyst in hockey?
