Hey kids. Sorry I haven’t been around much. Kind of been busy over in the borough of the Bronx thanks in part to the lockout, thanks in part to the Pinstripes.
Might even be getting a bonus trip to Hockeytown if the Yankees can manage to scratch out a run here or there tonight. Seriously, their offense looks like the Rangers’ power play. And they might be done tonight, too.
If not, I’ll stop in as much as possible.
I expect the NHL/NHLPA to get serious toward the end of the month, with more games about to be tossed into the trashbin. I think both sides know where the deal will be made. Just a matter of how badly either wants to get there. Soon enough, I think.
Oh, and tonight’s not only the original Columbus Day, but it’s also the schedule opening night for the Rangers, in L.A. Not. Gonna. Happen. The players’ first missed paychecks are Monday.
In the meantime, if anybody wants to jump in and do a guest blog, we’re open for them. To volunteer, drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
