Opening Night

About damn time, too. Unfortunately I'll be watching it at work (and perversely, the Thrashers don't have a home game on one of my days off until November -- after that, they don't have another until AFTER THE FREAKIN' ALL-STAR BREAK), but hockey is hockey, even if I'm watching it sober.

One of the annual signs hockey is back: Patrik Štefan is hurt. Poor guy.

Anyway: welcome back, hockey. Go Avs, Go Thrashers.

(ADD: if I had things even remotely together, I would have remembered to mention that Jes has posted my predictions on NHL awards and standings. You can pick mine out easily -- they're the well-reasoned predictions that will leave you stroking your chin and saying "this fellow -- I like the cut of his jib.")

Poor guy? The d00d eats rabbit brains. He's probably got mad rabbit disease.

Or, as we say in Vancouver, "What kind of weak bud are you smokin?"
