… because this week has been brutal. First of all, it lacks hockey. I never understood the NHL having three teams in the New York area and having them so often all play the same night, then having two, three, four nights in a week when none of them plays. I don’t get it. I mean, a lot of you wouldn’t watch the Islanders if your hair was on fire and that was the only way to get water. But a lot of you would watch a hockey game, any game, on a night when your team is off. Right?
So next week has to be better with all those games, starting Saturday, then Monday, then Wednesday, then Friday, then Saturday, then Monday! Hallelujah!
It has to be better for me, too, because this week was difficult on a personal level, and on a blog level. It really was. I cannot wait for it to be over.
So today I’m taking a day mostly away from the blog. I have another assignment this afternoon/evening, and I need some time away from everything else until then. See youse later.
PS, you should know that I talked to Jane McManus yesterday. She’s doing great, freelancing. And she misses you Boneheads. She really does. Maybe we’ll get her back on here for a guest post one day. Also I have invited the Great SamWeinman to stop by whenever—it’s open-ended. And somebody was asking a few weeks ago about Walt MacPeek, the former long-time Rangers’ beat guy for the Newark Star Ledger who’s now retired. He visits here, and he said he’d be interested in sharing some views once in a while, too. He’s a guy with a great wit, with loads of stories and never short of opinion, so that should be interesting when it happens.
Meant to link to Tortorella’s post-game from Tuesday, since the game was on Versus. Here it is.
