A Carolina Hurricanes blog with occasional news about the rest of the NHL.

the fun begins tomorrow

Since there was a little down time, I decided to change it up a little around here. Nothing drastic. I just wanted to make a few slight changes to the page. I've said a million times, and I'll say again, this page is intended for use with the mozilla firefox web browser. You can still use MSIE if you want. You can still have your mother pick your clothes out for you, too, if you want. Just know that if you're using MSIE, the page won't look the way I intend it to look.

I've moved the "canes blogs" to the top of the right sidebar. Just beneath that, I've made a special section for "oilers blogs". Some of these have been in the blogroll anyway, while others are new here. There are scores of other blogs covering the Canes or the Oilers, but I can't highlight them all. For instance, Sports Matters is an excellent blog that has provided lots of insight into the Stanley Cup playoffs, and specifically the Oilers. I recommend the site, but they talk about baseball a lot, and according to recent posts, it might become a World Cup '06 blog. It's in the blogroll now, but it's not "all Oil, all the time".

I will not be issuing any threats, writing any open letters to Oilers fans, or otherwise intentionally baiting anyone into a sparring contest. That isn't my style. Sure, I might (probably will) write some things that wrinkle some feathers, and I expect to be criticized when I do.

I'm hoping for a really exciting series and lots of dialog here, and on the other blogs.

Also, look for me and mudcrutch at the CBC hockey bloggers roundtable.

True, we cover all sports, not just hockey. But we won't be just a World Cup blog. And being from Edmonton, we do have a boner for the Oilers. So ignore us at your own peril, Caniacs. Ignore us at you own peril (Insert Vincent Price laugh here)!!!

Andy... I'll go ahead and add Sports Matters to the oil list. I can't for the life of me, figure out why you're turning your back on the Whale. You picked them to win the whole thing, but suddenly you've changed your tune.

It is always a bad thing to change your horse midstream.

Very bad.

The hockey gods are frowning.

I'm just saying....

Oh, you don't need to add us. I was just giving you a hard time. Alas, I see you have done it already. So...thanx!

I did pick the Canes to go all the way. But I only imagined that Edmonton could win one round. It was all my fragile spirit would allow. Once they beat up on the Sharks, I knew all bets were off. The Canes can come in 2nd this year, and win next year. I'm sorry Caniacs, but this is how it must be.

I'm rooting for the Oilers, as these new songs will prove:
