Tuesday Viewing Guide
By: Jeff Little • February 17th, 2009
Since I know my intrepid readers would not want to waste this off-night from CBJ hockey, please channel your viewing and rooting in the following directions tonight:
Ottawa over Colorado
Calgary over Vancouver
SJ over Edmonton
Particularly the last two, if you please, as if Calgary and SJ win, we will have a true, flat-footed 3 way tie for 6th in the West. Still need to control our own destiny by winning, but a little assistance never hurts, eh?
A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
