Hi kids. I’m back from those two weeks of vacation, including several meetings with Mr. T at Mr. Green’s office; and a splendid weekend in Boston … which, you cannot help but be constantly reminded, is home to the Stanley Cup champions.
I think I may have won a few championships of my own up there in the North End.
First I want to thank Fran for his wonderful stories, so well-written, so descriptive. We actually have one more in the hopper for later on … I still have some vacation time remaining. I also have a hockey-related guest blog that I’ll post one day this week or next.
I’m back to work this week — but I will be pretty tied up covering the Champions Tour’s Constellation Energy Players championship at Westchester Country Club.
We’re just about halfway through the worst hockey month of the year. Training camp is a month and a day away (physicals Sept. 16; on-ice Sept. 17 … fitness training with no pucks and probably some vomiting).
