I can't leave you kids alone for 2 seconds...

So I go on vacation to avoid thinking of something to post visit with a relative, and all hell breaks loose.

* We have bloggers, reconciling with Eklund

* Oh and another good blog saying good things about him.

* Some Avs fans seam to be taking the off-season pretty hard

* Nashville residents seem intent on keeping their hockey team (On a side note, I was about an hour south of Nashville this week, and there was quite a bit of talk from people about the rally. So any arguments about people not being interested in hockey there is pretty off-base)

* ESPN isn't as powerful as everyone thinks... Because Adrian Dater didn't actually disappear after a trip to the World Wide Leader's parent company (Of course, they may have kidnapped him, strapped him into a chair, taped his eyes open and forced him to watch those mind-numbing "Who's Now" segments until he cracked. If he abandons hockey and starts talking about Red Sox-Yankees like it's Russia-US then we'll know for sure)

* DLS finds a way to get through the slow summer months with little to talk about...Talk about the same things, but in a new blog: Mile High Hockey (Just kidding, this is a great new site by our friend over at DLS, and I'm excited to see where it leads. More on it later)

* Flames fans have mostly good things to say about the Avs

* Old friend Aebischer heads from a predominantly French-speaking place, to a predominantly Spanish speaking one.

* And someone has a "Misery"-style Man-crush on Joe Sakic. Hopefully, for Joe, it's not this guy

Anyways, It's good to be back (just in time for the weekend), and hopefully I can find something to write about in these dog days of summer.


  1. Don't think you won't be contributing to Mile High Hockey, because you will be. Oh yes.

  2. Some Avs fans seam to be taking the off-season pretty hard

    Seems pretty normal for an Avs fan to me...

  3. Welcome back jibblescribbits...it appears all the cool blogs went on vacation at the same time. This obviously slowed down much of what the NHL had to report.

    Keep blogging and The Dark RAnger will check out the new blog.


  4. 1) Welcome back! Yes, you missed so much. Even during the Dog-days there is hockey-related news to be had.
