Opening up a can...


It's that time again hockey fans.... You know, since we actually have a season and all. Go over to Rocket Jones and sign up for the 2005-2006 Hockey Whoopass Jamboree.

I guess I'll enjoy my Hurricanes logo while it lasts.....

So Long Ronnie!

After 23 outstanding years and a couple of Stanley Cups (alas, in exile in Pittsburgh) and 3 Lady Byng trophies (as the league's most gentlemanly player). Ronnie Franchise is calling it quits and is retiring as a Hurricane.

I count it one of the greatest sports privileges that I have ever had to have been able to see Ronnie play as often as I could. And let me be the first to say, you'll always be OUR captain.

Here's one of my favorite Ron Francis moments, scoring the game-winning goal in Detroit vs the Dead Things in the 2002 Stanley Cup Finals.

For Michele

It's a good thing my 'Canes were winning over the last week and a half. I didn't have any time for the Hockey Whoopass Jamboree.

Here's my penance, Michele:

Fight called on account of Hockey

Best.  Hockey.  Fight.  EVER.

The only thing missing was a Roy/Osgood style goalie throwdown....

Tonight, Tonight

The Hurricanes could win it all tonight, and drink from Lord Stanley's cup!

At home.  In the best arena in the NHL, in front of the best fans in the league.

Ok, I'm a little biased, but the truth of the matter is that every game night, 18,000 southerners fill an arena built on what used to be a cow pasture in the middle of nowhere to watch hockey.  On ice.  A sport that would otherwise be anathema to them.

Let's go 'Canes!
