Sorry, Long Time No Blog
Had to edit and repost this entry... My editor didn't like my last blog attempt... Although my last entry was posted I needed to make a few adjustments. Think he thought it seemed a little too condescending. But I was joking... I almost always joke around but my humor is a little dry.
I was wondering recently how Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and all the other stalker enabling websites have taken over the world (I'm being facetious... I know how much people love their websites but admit it, you find yourself creeping through profiles). I understand how it can be addicting to post but I like the fact that my friends, family or complete strangers don't always know what I am doing or where I am with GPS accuracy... That way they call me and ask about what I am doing and we talk... Text has become acceptable. I like text messaging but even texts have cut off our ability to hold a conversation with another human being. I want to slap myself when I send some texts because I know it was a lazy, half assed attempt at being social.
Quick note about some upcoming events in Western New York...
I will be the grand marshal at the Crown Royal 200 on Friday August 7 at Watkins Glen. Looking forward to experiencing the Grand Am series race and the tailgating. Steadfast Foundation will be a benefactor and it should be a lot of fun.
I will also be returning to Buffalo much earlier this year to help Jason Muzzatti run a goaltending school at the Holiday Twin Rinks in Cheektowaga. If you know a goalie who needs some ice time check out justgoalies.net
Also... because of the condensed schedule surrounding the Olympics this NHL season we are hoping to host the Catwalk for Charity on November 8th. Plans are being made so put that date in your head... The Bills have a bye week and we will be flying back from Boston the night before... So there is really no excuse for anyone to not be well rested for a little fun on Sunday... Make sure you book off work on Monday too.
