Thanksgiving break, plus a little extra

"If I wasn't so hungry, I'd make a comment
about how we all look like Calgary Flames fans."
Just wanted to let everyone know that I'll be taking the next week to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with family from far and wide.  As such, I'm guessing that I won't be on the Inter-tubes much at all until the family crunch eases.

But the holiday does give me (yet another) opportunity to get up on a soapbox: Don't let this dismal NHL season get in the way of your holidays.  The holiday season is special, and it's time to spend quality time with family and friends.  (Even your younger brother, the Red Wings fan, who will make you cheer for the Wings over the Bruins on Thursday.)  If that quality time involves getting to a Blue Jackets game, all the better.  But if it doesn't, that's fine.  Cherish those important relationships and bonds, first and foremost.

If I'm around next week, that's great.  If not, it's because I'm practicing what I preach.  Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

One other little nugget: We're going to be adding another voice to our Stable of Joy here at the Dark Blue Jacket blog very soon.  If you hang around in the "#CBJ" section of the Twitter-verse, they'll be a familiar name.  Regardless, I'm thrilled and think you'll enjoy yet another distinct and intelligent opinion on our favorite NHL hockey club.  If I understand correctly, their first DBJ blog post will come in the next week or so.  Can. Not. Wait!
