Going off the grid

While I'd like to think that this message has something to do with today's Dark Blue Birthday, it doesn't.

On the bright side, it also has nothing to do with my monumental frustration over the current state of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Nope, I'm just taking a couple of weeks off from the blog to spend some time with family.

Here's hoping that things look a lot brighter when I get back into the mix.

And don't forget that, while I'm gone, there are some great Columbus Blue Jackets-related blogs listed in the right-hand column that deserve readership and support.  You've got an extra five minutes a day, seeing as I'm not posting...why not check them out?

See you real soon!


  1. Breathe, breathe in the air..
    Don't be afraid to care ..

    See ya soon DBJ. Will look forward to that.

  2. Brrring! Brrring! Click. Hi! You have reached the blog of the Dark Blue Jacket. Sorry I am unable to come to the blog at the moment, please leave a message, and I'll get back to you as soon as I am able.

    Hey DBJ! Gallos here! Long time no type! Hey I wanted to let you know about an exciting opportunity I've gotten the CBJ involved in. Yeah, I enrolled them in a 33 game round robin tournament with a playoff berth at stake. Pretty cool huh? As a bonus, after about 12 games they will get to decide how well they are doing, and make some changes. It ought to be a real exciting time, with plenty of thrills of victory, and agonies of defeat.

    Funny thing. Today is the anniversary of Hitch's firing. I sure loved him as a coach. It was a dark day for me, I can tell you. One comment Hitch made back in the dark days of last year was 'these guys have to learn to hate losing more than anything. Once they have done that, they will move forward'. Watching them this last little bit, I wonder if they have made it to that point. That last road trip, where they got the livin' crap whaled out of them, having Commie sent home, anyway, the ignominy of it all.

    Then when they are at their lowest, the fans rise up and put $5k on the board for a win against Detroit. Then all of a sudden they have a couple of games where they are able to change the game, on the road, in the last minute of the game. So they go into this little round robin tournament knowing that they are not out of it if they are down. Pretty cool.

    Anyway, I hope you are able to keep an eye on this stuff down the stretch. It should be entertaining hockey. Because, after all, its about entertaining hockey. Hope the Dark Blue Family is well.
