Too much Blog neglect. Will do better.
Just wanted to forward a neat piece of info about my hometown. Our Central Hockey League team, the Odessa Jackalopes [now in its 11th year] has become an affiliate of the New York islanders. [press release here.]
I love this. Not so much for the players who may go from the Jacks to the big time of the NHL[I don't think we'll have many Hometown Heroes], but for the guys who may be on the opposite track. It might be a bit jarring to go from the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum with seating for over 16,000 to the Ector County Coliseum that seats a shade over 5,000.
But then it is Long Island.
P.S. Mockingbird was a Skrull?! Crap. Now Hawkeye's gonna go all Punisher on us.
