With Carp gone living the good life in New Orleans, you all are stuck with me for the week. I will try to get any hockey news up here, but I have a full slate of assignments so I won’t be able to monitor everything. Be kind, and send me an email (jmcmanus@LoHud.com) if I need to know about something.
Anyway, I consulted with Nasty 1 about the best way to get started this week and he suggested that everyone try to come up with a song that best describes each Ranger. I’ll give an example, Colton Orr = “More Human than Human” by White Zombie.
Just seems to fit his temperament. Or maybe that Rage Against the Machine song with lyrics unfit for a family blog.
Anyway, feel free to riff on that or anything else, and I’ll chime in from time to time. And thanks for the roller derby links. New York City’s league, Gotham Girls, will be playing all summer if you miss seeing a NY team slam someone to the boards.
UPDATE: Thanks to a poster for emailing me about the reports that Nik Zherdev broke his hand playing at the World Championships. Unfortunately, the original report seems to be in Russian, so I will see if I can get that confirmed.
