This is an age-old blogging trick -- most recently, I was reminded of it by David at Mile High Hockey -- but here is a bit of off-topic fun that regulars might appreciate. (And by "regulars," I don't mean only the active commenters. Now is as good a time as any for you lurkers to jump in with your own quips.)

do Islanders have pick in 2010 Draft

Bridgeport chat line
Oh, dear. Buddy, if you're lonely in that way, this isn't that kind of place. On the other hand, if you're willing to part with $2.99 a minute...I'm all ears.

It's possible you wanted this guy, scorer of last night's game-winning goal and recipient of the Honda Islanders Injury of the Game. But I'm betting you were looking for something more like this:
I blame Hans und Franz and the game threads.
Now we're talking! Hardly the best place, but still a fun place, for a little on what #16 has been up to.
And finally, our last interesting search query for this episode:
about nino niederreiter
Nino-who? I've never heard of him.
