I'm finally back from Atlantic City, and the short summary of the trip was that it was a success. I actually won a poker tournament while I was there, so that was pretty cool, and finished up money on the trip. That's probably the most important thing. I imagine if I had come back down money I'd be trying to get all sorts of sponsors and things on the site to recoup the losses. That would have been bad, since it would have been crappy sponsors. Ever see the infomercials for "miracle spring water" or "miracle hankercheifs?" Yeah. Not a good scene to imagine.
First off, I'd like to give a big thanks to everyone who held the fort down this week... Sean from Going Five Hole, the guys from the Pens Blog (biggest blog free agent signing of the year right there), Ryan from the Victoria times and Loser Domi from her sort of self-titled Leafs blog. These are some great writers, and even better people. Many thanks to them.
Right now, I'm off to the Islanders/Capitals game at the Coliseum. The Isles are coming off a win over the Penguins in which they scored four goals for the first time since November 1st. Quite possibly the biggest waste of money I can find tonight. If I make it out alive, there will be an update later tonight, otherwise I'll talk to you tomorrow. There will definitely be something up early on Monday too, and I'll be taking off Tuesday for the big day. I know I just got back from vacation, but we will be on a normal schedule starting Wednesday. Promise. Have a safe and happy holidays everyone!
