Heads-up - It's Hockey Season

Hockey season is officially underway, and the defending Stanley Cup champions the Detroit Red Wings already have a loss under their belt to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Awesome.

On the bright side, I get to see my beloved Wings take on Brendan Shannahan (former Wing) and the New York Rangers on October 18. While one game per season is hardly a fair option (when I lived in Michigan I would get to between 8-10 a season) I guess it is better than nothing. And this year I get to see them on their own turf, my beloved Joe Louis Arena.

Last year I had complaints during hockey season from some of my non-interested blog readers. I'll try to label any hockey posts clearly so you'll be able to skip them should you desire, but you should probably expect about one a week.

Just giving you the heads up.

hate to break your heart, but Shanny's not a Ranger. He's not an anything right now. His contract expired at the end of the '08 season, and was not renewed.

Shanny may re-sign with the Rangers this week, but it's very much up in the air. There've been some rumors that he may rejoin the Wings later this season, but it's doubtful

I know - I am being optimistic that he will be back :)
