Four weeks until the lockout!

Yup. Four weeks from tomorrow. Can’t wait. Yee-freakin-hah! I’m sure you saw last night that the Traverse City prospects tournament was canceled because of the impending, unavoidable work stoppage.

Me? After putting up three posts yesterday, I’ve got nothing today.

Been really busy with the “other job” this week. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I worked a five-day week in which I had to get up early in the morning, drive in rush hour traffic both ways, and had to go to bed early. (Of course, I’ve also had some work to do in the evenings, and I’m sure I won’t be completely off this weekend, before you get the idea I’m some sort of 9-to-5er this week). Last time I did this kind of consistent daytime work was probably around 1984-85 when I did the Jets beat for a while (I covered the Dan Marino-Ken O’Brien shootout at the Meadowlands, that 51-45 OT thriller … remember Al Toon?).

Still looking for some guest bloggers for the following two weeks, when I will be here a lot, but officially on vacation. So if you’re interested in volunteering, email me at rcarpini@lohud.com.
