Tonight, the Islanders come to town for the traditional New Year's Eve home game. I've been a season ticket holder mini-plan holder since the 2002-03 season, and this will be the first time out of five that I'm not going. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do on NYE.
Actually, this year, I'll be working. Meh.
Last night, I watched "Relive the Magic:Carolina Hurricanes" on the NHL Network. Rod Brind'Amour, Cam Ward and Mac McCaughan watched "the game" (game 7 of the 2006 SCF) together and commented on the thoughts and feelings they had. You know who Brind'Amour and Ward are. McCaughan is the frontman for two Chapel Hill indie rock bands. Superchunk and Portastatic. Even if you don't know these bands (and you should), If you've ever been to a show at the Cat's Cradle, you've seen Mac. He's always there. The program was really cool, just to see the reactions from the guys as they watched the game.
Game time tonight is 8:00.
