177 Thursday hockey talk

Not going to update you on the vacation so far … you don’t need to know the details of my golf swing, the cost of the new garage door springs, or that I still haven’t gotten my computer back from the geek, who’s had it since Saturday. Before we get…

351 Summer of Carp off to a roaring start

First the desktop computer breaks down … leaving me to rely on this piece of carcillo Mac laptop all weekend, at least through today. Then, I’m out mowing the lawn Sunday when it starts to rain. But the garage door opener broke, and nobody is home, and I don’t have…

66 Taking a day off … and more

I’m going to be taking a lot of days off the next few weeks leading up to the lockout, er, I mean, training camp. That doesn’t mean I won’t be here or that we’re going to shut down. I will be here and we won’t shut down. I just may…

134 Happy August: CBA stuff just getting started

The players say they want to see the financials. The commissioner says the league provided 76,000 pages worth. I’m telling you, this thing is going to take a while, and I certainly appreciate that, this time, I haven’t had to cover this. It’s going to be tedious and lengthy. Kind…
