Blue Jackets: 2 ... Predators: 0

Monday, September 18, 2006
Here's a fun little fact at 6:24 in the morning (by EST standards) ... as of yesterday's 2-0 exhibition game win by the Blue Jackets over the Preds, I'm now blogging this blog for the first time while the Jackets are playing. When I had started in May the Jackets were already dead as a doornail, and the Oilers made it to the finals two days later.

I was only able to follow so much of last night's game as I listened over the online webcast done by WFAN. If there is one sport that has a hard time transitioning to the radio, it is definitely hockey. After that comes basketball. Football and baseball you have the luxury of pauses between each throw, rush, hit, out, whatever. But it was still great to finally be able to hear the Jackets in action again, and with a win no less. One of the things I noticed was Tomas Popperle's rock solid play in goal after he came in to replace Leclaire in the middle of the game, along with what I think was three or four fights. The broadcasters were definitely having a ball with the apparent saves that Popperle was making last night.

The team has off from any exhibition games today before they go on a five games in six days tear between Tuesday and Sunday. Up next? The Buffaville Prebres (Buffalo Sabres). I think I read somewhere that they won't be playing in their new jerseys until the official start of the regular season. Ah well. I probably won't be going to this game either due to financial issues. But just a few more weeks and I'll be going to opening night against Vancouver!

Good times. With that, I'm going to take a morning nap. It's really too early for me to be up when I have nothing to do today class-wise or anything else-wise.

    Congratulations on getting featured over at Behind the Jersey. It's always great to learn more about folks in the community, especially those that are close by.

    I got to listen to the game for about five minutes last night (start of the third). It was good to hear George (even if most people I know don't seem to like him - too energetic) and Bill calling the action.

    Hockey is back!
