So, I've fled the country. Seriously, I ran away to Canada.
Okay, while that's technically true, it's not nearly as exciting as it sounds. I have gone to Vancouver to
Since this is hard on the heels of taking students to New Mexico for a conference and before that being in Arizona for spring break, I've had a hard time keeping up with life. So there is no Fictional Hockey League post today.
There is, however, this picture of Luongo looking sad.
|Also, tomorrow (April 4th) is Lu's birthday!|
I'm sad, too, Lu. I'm sad, too. There should have been an FHL post. And you should still be in Vancouver when I'm there, damn it, instead of playing for the Panthers. When the hell am I ever going to see the Panthers play?
(I once saw Luongo in Phoenix. He didn't play ANY of the games against the Coyotes that I was at, which always made me sad. But I saw him once walk into a Coyotes practice, back when Coyotes practices were still open to the public, along with a few other Canucks players. They'd just finished practicing on the same ice, before the 'Yotes. All I could do was stare, frozen, for a few minutes and quietly say "Luuuuuuuu". See, Lu was the first athlete I ever admired-- I got into sports very recently, and by sports I mean hockey only, so this was a big deal.)
On the bright side, I'll be seeing the friend who got me into hockey, so I'll still be hockey-happy, just not Fictional Hockey happy, I suppose. (This same friend was there when Lu was at the Coyotes practice and can back me up on that story.)
Fingers crossed for a Monday return, but it might be more like Wednesday. (It is *ridiculously* hard to get from Vancouver to the middle of rural Appalachia, where I now make my home, so travel might take all the FHL writing time. Also, the fact that the Nook app on my tablet updated and it is now a lot more of a pain to highlight things doesn't help. On the other hand, quite a number of FHL posts have been written in airports, so we shall see. We shall see. )
