I know, it's the opening of training camp and here I am signing off for a few days. No excuse will satisfy a rabid Columbus Blue Jackets fan, so suffice to say that I have to go on trophy husband duty for a while.
And besides, you have the entire "Time to step up" series to digest while I'm away. Not like I've left you in the lurch!
If all goes well, I hope to be mulling around Nationwide Arena at the end of next week. Tell the team to stay healthy while I'm off the grid.
