All that anyone here in this stinking-hot country cares about today is --- get this ---- HOCKEY.
Don't people look at the thermometer up here anymore? Yet that's all we are getting on all the sports channels here in our steambath of a country.
Free agency deadline is today and you can follow it here. And here. Brian Campbell and Michael Rozsival to the Hawks. Wade Redden to the Rangers. Brian Rolston to the Devils. A whopping $20 million offered to Mats Sundin today from the Canucks.
People seem to forget that it's not hockey weather at the moment. Hey guys -- it's baseball and, yes, football season up here. (And arena football season down there.)
