Off to England with my wife to celebrate five years of wedded bliss.
Trip will include:
Many pints in many old pubs inhabited by decrepit old men (my favorite - old pubs that is, not old men).
A lot of boiled meat or, if lucky, a lot of Indian takeaway.
A healthy dollop of sex.
A Premier League Soccer match.
The first time we were overseas, four years ago, we left with the Yankees coming off of four straight appearances in the World Series and favoured to do it again, and returned to find them long gone, knocked off by the Angels (!?).
In other words, there will be no computer, no TV, no papers.
We return Thursday afternoon.
I hope to see our starting lineup that night including everyone healthy and Pouliot on the fourth line with Reasoner and Thoresen.
Jacques in the pressbox with Peterson or Winchester and Hejda (I guess).
It looks like the top six D are decided and the above is likely, if not guaranteed. Interesting to note that even in the papers the note is that Winchester has done nothing to earn a spot.
Trade him now. Or send him down.
If I see our friend Bob Sacamano, I'll say 'ello.
