In case you have felt lately that something is missing…something is off…something just slightly off-kilter on my blog…you were right! I have not mentioned hockey in many moons. Well, I’m about to remedy that situation.
But first, I have a confession to make. It may really hurt, so brace yourself if you are a fellow hockey fan.
Here it is: I didn’t even realize until today that the Tampa Bay Lightning have already played three preseason games. I haven’t checked NHL.com in so long, the Favorites link was dusty. And I still haven’t pulled down my hockey jerseys from the closet shelf.
I know, I know…I am terribly ashamed. What kind of hockey fan blithely stumbles through life, not knowing the games have already begun?
OK, onto the hockey talk. Surprisingly, the Lightning have won 2 of those 3 preseason games, beating the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Rangers. They play New York again tonight.
A quick perusal of the team roster…who? Who the heck is that guy?
I have a lot of homework to do.
