First off, what was the big deal about it, and after sitting through 2 minutes of dusk, I’m not sure why people spent years planning this vacation.  Ok, it was cool for a minutes but it wasn’t vacation worthy.

Second off, the traffic yesterday was very eerie.  Everyone that came to work right before the eclipse said that it was very strange with nobody on the roads and it going from sunny to dark during their trip into work.

Lastly, if the traffic pattern was the same everyday at 5pm going home.. I’m all for an eclipse every day because that was the best ride home I’ve had in a long time.

Anyways, we are 44 days away from the Chicago Blackhawks taking on the Pittsburgh Penguins, and I can’t wait for some real hockey to talk about.

We really have two topics we can bring up at this time on almost a daily basis. One of them being Michal Rozsival, and the the other one being Patrick Sharp.

The thing about Sharpie heading into this coming season is thinking that he’s healthy after surgery.  If he still has that fire and his healthy can the Chicago Blackhawks expect 20 goals from him this coming season?  I sure hope so, and will he play with Patrick Kane, and will Kane be able to carry over his high volume scoring that he’s had with Artemi Panarin.

I can’t wait for hockey to start!
