I have no idea what the byfuglien happened tonight, either in the Rangers-Wild game or at this blog!
I was at a football game, and when the game was over and I got to my laptop to write my story — poof — tonight’s post and all your comments were gone.
I still don’t know what happened in the game, and I don’t really care at the moment. But I am desperately trying to find an answer to What In Holy Hell happened to the game thread.
If you guys can shed any light on when it all disappeared, time of day, time of game, roughly how many comments were up. Whatever. It might help the investigation.
