Predicting The Future With No “Inside” Sources

This post is going to part serious and part humor. The serious part consists of me seriously trying to predict where the top unrestricted free agents will land. The humor part will come on July 1st when all my picks are wrong. Sounds like fun, no?  Let’s go! (Please keep in mind that I’m just…


The Difficult Life Of A Professional Athlete

I’m sure this post will upset half the people reading it (meaning 1 or 2 people at the most), but I thought I’d voice a different point of view than the one I’ve been reading since Belak’s death. I like hockey. I like sports in general. And while I stay current with the four major…


Quick Playoff Predicitions

What I am sayin’ is that (NHL…
