Fun In August

We all know how much this month sucks. Thank goodness we have the NHL Network. Starting August 6th, they will have Gretzky week.

Why hasn't anyone thought of this before? Surely the best way to get through the worst part of the offseason is to dedicate a week to The Great One. One of my all time favorites (in non Olympic years anyway... USA USA USA!). Just what is Gretzky week you say? Look here.

What fun this will be. If only they will follow it up with Messier week, Mac T week, Roy week, Bourque week, and Drulia week we will be set.

On a side note, I was reading Cambells Cuts (on the recommendation from our old pal Custance) and this caught my eye:

"The Atlanta Thrashers had the inside track on Campbell in the first hours of free agency. He was reportedly about to accept Atlanta’s offer when McDonough apparently ordered Tallon to improve the Chicago’s offer to Campbell, who ended up signing with the Blackhawks for $56.8 million over eight years."

Just thought I'd pass it along. Enjoy Gretzky week everyone.

This should make Morty feel better after his immense disappointment upon realizing that Discovery Channel's Shark Week had nothing to do with Joe Thornton.
