So, NHL training camps opened this week. The important thing is that the return of hockey will bring me many national games to enjoy on the days between football games. There’s about three weeks of garbage hockey to get through before the Canucks can start letting me down for real. Luckily, a couple of them take place enough time zones away I won’t care.

The Kings & Canucks are going to China for a couple of games. The NHL is mandating that they take actual regular-season players, and not just kids they’re going to send down to Utica or Ontario (Cal.) once camps close. The Canucks are smart, though, and only taking one Sedin, because if they lose them both no one will be able to prata svenska to the rest of the power play once the season starts.

One thing I am looking forward to is anniversary beers. The Tampa Bay Lightning turn 25 this year, and to commemorate it they are having a special beer brewed for their home games (& hopefully for sale in local stores).

I’m sure Dave Andreychuk there has had more than a couple on the house, considering the ring he HELPED THE LIGHTNING STEAL from the Flames back in 2004.

I have it on the NFL network at the moment and they’re discussing whether Owens will get into the Hall this year. If he doesn’t get in his 3rd year, all those guys who vote no should get kicked in the dick and their voting rights removed.

Listen, I’m not going to tell a prostitue how to do her job,

but how the hell can she expect customers when she’s apparently only available between 2 and 6 pm on saturdays?

If I go, I will! And if that means offering $10 for a ticket and not getting in, then that’s the story. Actually, it might make a better story.
