Twists and Turns

Following a sports team can be a lot like a roller coaster ride. Full of loops and twists, slow and difficult climbs, and effortless and frightening plunges.

Right now I'm about halfway through a loop about Michael Nylander. I look back about two weeks ago when I came to his defense at the suggestion of moving him out of Washington for Khabibulin.

Right now I'd trade him for a hot dog at the concession stand.

Maybe, with luck, this will loop back into a positive frame by April.

Puck drops in Philly in one hour as this is being written. I detest the Philadelphia Flyers. You can be sure, whatever the results are, I will be back at the keyboard with something strong to say.
