This is a shout out to The Rat Trick–a blog about everything Florida Panthers. Head on over and check them out if you’re a Panthers fan, too! There’s great writing by smaht people who are crazed Florida fans like myself. They tell it like it is:  the good, the bad and the ugly. I won a contest last night–yes, you should also follow them on Twitter and on Facebook–and was thrilled to receive two free tickets to last night’s game! Thank-you Rat Trick! Here’s to playoffs!

Hockey Season!

I didn’t know if I was going to be handed a kielbasa or punched in the face. That was a great atmosphere to start the game. The nice thing was being able to suck the life out of the place by our play. You really like that feeling.

Unless you are living in shed with no Wi-Fi, Fox Sports, XM, cell towers, Versus, any radio access, TV, or people, you  know it’s “that time” again.  No, I wasn’t referring to baseball!  The FL Panthers started out strong with their 2-0 win against the Islanders only to crash and burn when they came up against the Pens, but, hey! It’s the birth of a new season so there’s still time for the Panthers to get in the groove.  Here’s hoping for a win Saturday night against the Lightening.  In the meantime, my boy, Clemmensen, needs to heal quickly and get back into some net action.  Check out The Rat Trick a blog my buddy, Dave Lasseter, writes for to get the latest news about the Panthers.  Happy, happy hockey!
