I haven't been able to start any hockey knitting yet because I'm knitting like an idiot on some socks for my FIL's hunting trip. The pair I made him turned out to be regular sock-length, and won't peek out from the tops of his boots. I must have a switch inside me that won't knit knee socks or something.
Anyway, just asking a bunch of other knitters: The abbrevation for Tampa Bay Lightning (Hi, Marc Denis! We miss you on the Blue Jackets!) is TBL. Anyone else read Through the Back Loop every single time they see that? Also, Mikko and Saku Koivu - does anyone else hear "Koigu" instead? These two things catch my attention every time.
My poor Blue Jackets are having a rough start again this year, but this time there's no excuse. At least now, in Canada, I have the option to watch all these other teams do well. Last year there were no other games on the air.
