Eddie the Eagle takes Flight and Dances

Yep, Crazy Eddie is at it again. Eddie Belfour brought the house down with this beautiful performance worthy of an Emmy. First, the background: Eric Staal was skating in the offensive zone near the boards. Bryan Allen was near him and was called for “tripping” which was dubious. But let’s say it was legitimate for […]

Florida Panther Season Ticket Renewals Redux

In a previous entry on my blog (Florida Panther Season Ticket) I talked about the Panthers. Here’s more news. I finally got an e-mail asking if I was going to renew. Here’s my edited reply: We had talked before and you were going to call me back. It’s been about eight weeks. Anyway, that’s beside […]

Hockey Playing Future Presidents

In the current “The Hockey News” there is a full-page article on John Kerry. As it turns out he’s a true hockey fan and was a player for some years. He still ice skates recreationally. Yet another reason to save America and not vote for Shrub. Kerry played a charity game earlier this year with […]
