Are You Ready...

... for some hockey?

After a year of temper tantrums, the NHL owners and players have put aside their petty differences, ended the lockout, and got back to the business of hockey. Tonight, the regular season kicks off tonight with new rules, new players, and hopefully a new, fan-friendly outlook.

Among the new rules are shootouts instead of ties, no playing in corners for goalies, and no red line for 2-line passes. New players include Sidney "Sid the Kid" Crosby (all of eighteen years old). The new outlook can be seen in lower ticket prices and those new rules (which will, theoretically, lead to more exciting games).

Tonight my St. Louis Blues open their season against the Dead Things in Detroit. I'll admit it- it's a lot harder to keep up with the teams I like when I live so far from them. But... I'm following the Cards, and I'm going to do my best to keep up with the Blues. We'll see...

I can't wait for the first puck drop. Woohoo!!!!
