Watching hockey right now -- I just watched the Flyers win one against the Penguins. I really like both teams -- always have, but I think I'm rooting for the Flyers here. I'm sure that nekojita is rooting for them so that she won't have to deal wth crazy hockey fans in Pittsburgh 8)
I also caught the last bit of the Carolina-New Jersey game in which Brodeur managed a shutout. I'm especially pleased by it because Brodeur's now tied the record for playoff shutouts. The previous holder was Patrick Roy who I've never liked as a goalie.
(It's a shame that Brodeur probably won't top Roy's last remaining record for playoff wins -- Roy's still about 55 games ahead of Brodeur there)
The Sharks game is starting soon. Hopefully they can do the same thing they did last year against Calgary and win against the Ducks a second time.
This weekend, I'm going to the Festival of Books, so tomorrow I'm loading up the car, packing a wimpdork in the passenger seat, and then roaring down the 5 with the aim of getting to LA in time to eat at one of my favorite restaurants. Maybe Maria's. We'll see.
I've mentioned this to people before, but the reason I make sure to never miss the Festival of Books is Ray Bradbury. His talk is almost always exactly the same, but it's always really good.
I made a copy of it and put it up at one point. I should do that again.
Anyway -- back to the Sharks game.
