I think the last part is a given, but the first parts are much more important.
Also want to take this opportunity to thank all of youse for being here all the time, for making this place what it is (which is, um, indescribable).
And once we get hockey back—opening night Jan. 19 or 20—here’s hoping that a lot of our regulars who have understandably been away during this idiotic lockout will come back in droves. I will count on you all to spread the gospel and make the traffic go crazy again so that they will send me to a lot of games and let me spend a lot of time doing this instead of my “other” job.
Enough of that. Enjoy, have fun, be safe.
Me? I’m going to kick off the new year with Ralph and Alice and Ed and Trixie. Happy yuletide!
