One-timer Tuesday!

Tuesday, March 06, 2007
With the Jackets having a whole three days off before they return to the ice tomorrow evening against the Los Angeles Kings, I just thought I'd throw out a few things going on in the CBJ world before I run off to take care of some errands tonight. Some are just little things, while others are pretty important in my opinion.

-Congratulations to Drew at End of the Bench for his great interview with Michael Arace of The Columbus Dispatch! I definitely like the questions you asked Mr. Arace, and he seemed more than happy to respond to each and every one of them. Maybe I should see about pestering Aaron Portzline for an interview so that both beat writers are covered, eh? Eh? Yeah, I kid ... still, picking at a team beat writer's mind like that was very enlightening to read about.

-Though I'm reporting on this a little late, there's still two hours before the Hats for Heroes Night at three BD's Mongolian BBQs around Columbus starts. Go to help out pediatric cancer, but stay for the all-you-can-eat food and Blue Jackets' players to meet! Jody Shelly and Dan Fritsche will be together at the Arena District location, while Ron Hainsey will be at Sawmill and Fredrik Modin will be at Easton. Poor Hainsey, stuck out in Sawmill like that.

-The game which was canceled on NBC that was going to have the Blue Jackets and St. Louis Blues on March 25th? It looks like FSN Ohio is going to be picking up the ball on this one, and though they're under no obligation to tweak their schedule of programming, will indeed be covering the game. Even if I won't be able to watch it since I'll most likely be working at it, FSN deserves credit for that move. Puck drop has been rescheduled for 6:00 PM EST, as a result.

-This one comes straight from me, just from having some discussions with some people at The Blueline. First and foremost, I've been led to believe that the original rumors about the jerseys being changed back to home whites/road darks around the league are true, and will begin next season. John Buccigross, in his most recent column, confirms this fact.

Then there's something else he confirms that I had heard while at work before, but wasn't sure if it was definite: there will be no alternate jerseys next season. A shame, I know. I guess Reebok (or RBK) decided that to get the best amount of sales for their jersey products, they had to reduce the amount of new jerseys they would be making in the first couple of years. Financially, it makes sense. Make everyone buy the home/away jerseys first, then two to three years later, introduce "BRAND NEW!" alternative jerseys that people jump on, now that people aren't scratching their head at the various options available and only buy one.

And that's all I got for today, folks. Now go find something else to read. Might I recommend some Kurt Vonnegut?

    Vonnegut, good choice. Breakfast of Champions anyone?

    Thanks for the comments on the interview. Some of the most fun I've had doing this blogging stuff. Hopefully I'll get the chance to do more of these.

    (Long time coming): Great job on the draft preview post. Very excellent.
