I feel like a little kid sitting in the back of our family station wagon whining "are we there yet?" The off-season seems to drag on, and I become even more desperate for hockey news as we enter August - it's like the last leg of a road trip where the anxious feeling takes over. It’s so much worse in years like this when the Canes don’t make the playoffs.
How desperate am I for hockey? I was excited this morning when I saw an advertisement for Disney on Ice thinking “what? Is the ice down?”, but alas, no. The advertisement was for ticket sales. I also had a glimmer of excitement when reading the pre-season training camp calendar for September – finally, the season will be approaching and maybe, just maybe, they’ll talk about something other than NCAA infractions on the radio. I’m so desperate I listen to Adam Gold hoping hockey will come up. I’m so desperate I read Canadian news just to get some information about hockey. I’m so desperate I follow a bunch of hockey players on Twitter just hoping someone will talk about hockey. I’m so desperate I’ve started paying attention to soccer just to take off the edge!
What are you doing to get your hockey fix?
