Hockey fans across the world are waking up today to a grim reality: for the second time in eight years, the National Hockey League has chosen to lock out its players in an attempt to restructure the collective bargaining agreement with the Players Association. For many fans, both younger ones and fans gained in the past seven seasons due to the game’s incredible growth, this is a new experience. For long-time fans, it is a stark reminder of the events of September 2004. We do not know how long this lockout scenario will endure; we may More >
Ever had one of those weeks where you realize you’re trying too hard get a trade done? Yeah me too. After some time away from the hobby, I was eager to again experience the rush that comes from making two collections better all at once.

With the Eastern Conference Final now in the books, I know that we hockey fans have a great Stanley Cup final to look forward to, with the New Jersey Devils taking on the Los Angeles Kings. Both teams have performed admirably throughout the first three rounds of the playoffs, so a series with great goaltending and clutch goal scoring should very much be in the cards. In less than a couple of weeks, we’ll all know which team has won the Stanley Cup. Those of us tuning in will get to see what should only be More >

Much has been written about the New Orleans Saints and BountyGate. While nobody asked my opinion, I’m going to offer it. I’m here to help, free of charge!
I’m listing a checklist of items that will put the New Orleans Saints organization back together. Once they hire me to implement the changes, I’ll be sure to report back to you on the progress made.
