Well, at least Marian Gaborik is healthy at the moment … we think. How’d you like to be Chicago, which had that nightmare glitch by GM Dale Tallon, who didn’t tender his qualifying offers to restricted free agents on time then had to scramble to over-pay them before they became... Read More →

Sorry for the system asking for passwords. Apparently it’s a company-wide glitch. Our tech people are aware of it and working on it, and hopefully going to resolve it.
Not going to have much today, even if there’s big news … which we’re not anticipating. I have a big family reunion/golf outing upstate, so I won’t be anywhere near a computer or a phone or anything. I did want to clear up a few things about Zherdev’s July 31... Read More →

Because I have nothing else at this point in the morning, I’ve been meaning to tell somebody this: There are a lot of ads I love (Heineken), and a lot I hate (Geico’s pile of money). On WFAN radio there’s now an ad for this lawyer who supposedly gets people... Read More →
