Finally, let the games begin!

It seems life for ever ago that the last game of Hockey was played last year right???

Tonight is the start of the new season… who will bring home Lord Stanley’s Cup?

The picture below is from 1967, the last year that my Toronto Maple Leaf’s won the Stanley Cup!   It has been a long haul… Every new season brings new hope… It seems the Washington Capitols may be one of the favoured teams to bring it all home this year… who know… maybe! None of the players in the picture below made the team this year!

The good news is that when we travel to the south west, we bring our Shaw Direct satellite dish with us, and I can easily get all the games in HD!

Even though when we are in California, the games start at 4:00 p.m., no problem!  We have a PVR and usually I record the game and watch it later in the evening! Well, only 82 games till the playoffs start!

Very sad to hear of the passing of Steve Jobs, the man from Apple… He changed our world!  He will be missed!

Till tomorrow… (it’s game time!)
