Back in the saddle

19Sep07

I’m still decompressing (re: getting back into “real world” mode) from a pretty fun honeymoon down the California coast, including several days in Anaheim. Some random thoughts:

-Sighted: one Blackhawks Tony Amonte jersey with a captain’s C. That was pretty random down at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Also, saw one guy in full Hurricanes merchandise in Disneyland. Down at Anaheim? Not a single Ducks thing.

-Also not sighted: Earl Sleek, since our schedules didn’t mesh up together.

-We were planning on going to Ducks’ training camp last Friday to break Chris Pronger’s leg, but fate thwarted out plans as the Ducks had a preseason game against the Kings that day. That meant that there was no open practice at Ducks Ice. Doh.

-I see the new schedule idea’s finally being kicked around. Take a look at what Bob McKenzie is reporting as the new idea and compare it to the idea I posted in v1.0 of this blog.

-I hate the new Sharks jerseys. Well, at least the white ones. The dark teal ones are growing on me and they look much better in person.

-I know Mike Fisher’s one of those intangible guys and he can still put up 20-25 goals, but doesn’t that say something NHL salary inflation when he gets an average of $4 million a year? Just two seasons ago, that was more than players like Jonathan Cheechoo and Erik Cole.

I’ll be writing a lot more in the days to come as I catch up on all the hockey news from the past few days. Until then, I’ll be trying to sell my dreaded preseason tickets.
