Hockey tonight … a diversion we need

I know I need it … though I might not be able to see it tonight due to other commitments. Anyway, I will put up the season’s first “It’s Go Time!” this evening, for anybody who wants to watch the game together right here, as always.

I have a few guest reviewers lined up for the Traverse City tournament games. Nobody’s going to review tonight’s game because I wanted to spend tomorrow talking about 9/11 and the Rangers, and what you guys remember. I know, in a week after we got hit by a hurricane, and then saw a massive hockey tragedy unfold in Russia, maybe we need to have some hockey for light-hearted talk.

And maybe we do. But 9/11 was a day that, in my mind, will always be tied to the Rangers, because I was in Manhattan with them that day. And this anniversary is something in which I’ve been pretty involved, writing vignettes on a number of the victims, and also a couple of rather lengthy columns of inspiration that have grown out of the worst day most of us will ever see.

So we’ll talk about that tomorrow. Today, it’s hockey, and I can tell by the comments and the page views the last few days that you all are more than ready for hockey and it’s really good to see a lot of returning Boneheads gearing up.

See ya this evening.
