As of right now, I'm on vacation — off to a magical land known as British Columbia. I'll be touring around the next 10 or so days — Vancouver, Kamloops (shown above), Banff and all points in between — with my girlfriend (an Ontarian's Western Canada christening), which means the blogging will be light-to-nonexistent until mid-month.
Still, I have something hockey-related in mind for the midway point of the trip (Aug. 8), and it should involve a pictorial of sorts.
Until then, Off Wing, Grabby and Matt, CinO, TB, Slovak Jes and Old Man Richardson (among others) have the bases covered.
Not that you should be looking for hockey news in August, anyway.
