Me...

Marginally excited, but will probably increase...

I'll be watching the Flyers and thinking "Who ARE half these guys?!?!?"...There was no spring training to get a handle on them...

Once I learn the team (and hopefully get off to a good start), I'll be back in my hockey mode...

"hockey mode" is usually dependent upon whether or not the Eagles suck, and since they did (big time ), I would've been in complete hockey mode by the middle of November if not for the lockout...

Hockey has failed me.

Really, between the BCS Championship and the first day of spring training, it's a cold winter for sports. At least in my mind.

I hate basketball. I'm not really into pro-football, and though I enjoyed hockey, it was just a poor substitute for baseball and college football.

When I really needed hockey, as the bowl season began, it wasn't there. LOL So screw it!

But who knows, I may get back into it depending how well the Bruins do this year.

No kidding. It lost it's meaning to me when the original six changed to the far fetched 30. Like, hometown rooting lost it's meaning when our Canadian guys from Quebec began playing for Los Angeles. ANd then when they began trading left and right all it became was our millionaires we got from some other place playing against somebody elses millionaires. Like who gives a sheite what rich guy wins.

And after this latest farce, I find it difficult to turn away from watching my hometown 'Olds Grizzlies' play along with my adopted Slave Lake Wolves. Better hockey as you get a rink side seat every time and, get to drink beer with the players after the game.

Hockey has been so far out of my thoughts that I JUST realized the Flyers were playing tonight and it started over an hour ago...

(Shouldn't have remembered...They're down 3-0)...

Speaking of the Eagles. What's the feeling on Chip Kelly out there??
