Some intra-site or intra-network housekeeping notes to attend to, the first being our community pick-up hockey game this Saturday, Aug. 25. Have you signed up? Have you paid Russel?
The latest details are in this FanPost, so pay attention to the regulations (equipment, where you can goof off, where to send money) and be prepared to have a blast. I trust you all will take pictures for us to use for
blackmail promoting the next site event. Special thanks to Russel for doing the thankless legwork on this.
Please also give Russel an indication of your intent if you haven't already; remember to bring cash if he hasn't received your ducats by that night.
Update: For participants, here's your pre-game pep talk from your absentee "coach" (why, I even wore a tie for the role):
Meanwhile, elsewhere in our little world: If you're a fantasy football type -- or if you're thinking of becoming one with your lockout down time -- SB Nation's fantasy football wonks have been doing live chats with advice during the evenings this week. If that's your cup of tea, go check out their live "War Room" here. And even if you get to it late, you can poke around that one and the two prior days to pick up tips and advice.
My advice: I think that Charles Jefferson is gonna be a star.
