Hurricanes Time Capsule: 2008

We're going to look ahead into the future. All the way to the year... 2008. Cyn4Canes and I finally jumped into the modern era and got an HDTV in the living room. However, we do not yet have an HD DVR because we have all this awesome stuff saved from a few years ago. I spent the weekend going through and archiving everything we've saved, and it's really a lot of fun going back into the "time capsule" and seeing a lot of old favorites, as well as seeing just how much things have changed. There are so many good moments in these that they're all worth watching, but the highlights are the Ruutu interviews ("Look at my face!") and Patty Eaves going shopping. Also, it was interesting to hear Kevyn Adams' comments on the feel of the locker room in light of the Blackhawks' future cup win. My only regret is that Whitney was injured during this stretch of saved games, so we don't see much of him other than in the background of an interview or two. Anyways, hope you enjoy this, I know I did.

It's Hockey Time! Can't you hear it?

A while back we had a discussion about the music that's played at Hurricanes games. I've put out an updated list of everything I've got in my "As Heard at the RBC Center" playlist. If you can think of anything I'm missing, let me know!

While Cyn4Canes and I were looking for a good picture for her countdown clock, we ran across this pic I took at the opener of the '09-'10 season. Un-LOUD and Un-STRONG... it's like they knew all along... ;) Let's hope this season is LOUDer and STRONGer!

Bitter Much? Fleet Street Hacks Take Olympic Gold For Whining

This is not really related to hockey, but since we're all following the Olympics during the break, I thought I'd post it. The only thing funnier than the British bitching about Canada's Olympics is Canada bitching about the British bitching about Canada's Olympics. =)
