The Hawks’ Nest

And we’re back

Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season. Since I know everyone’s dying to know, mine began with a trip to Vancouver to see my Canucks take on the St. Louis Blues. Sadly, my presence in the building did nothing to inspire them, as they played a thoroughly unwatchable game en route to a 3-1 loss. Their only loss in the last five games, by the way.

I also came to discover I really like that “Empire State of Mind” song by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. I can’t decide if I should be embarrassed or not. For now I’ll say I’m not, but I reserve the right to change my mind and delete this paragraph later. Don’t think I haven’t done that before.

One more surprising fact from the holidays: according to WordPress’s stats, this blog had 43 visits on December 25. I can’t help but feel sorry for the 43 people so desperate to escape their family on Christmas that they had to kill time by visiting a blog I’d already said a week earlier would go dark for the holidays.

At any rate, the boys came back from their break with a nice comeback win last night in Spokane, getting three third period goals for a big road win in Spokane that gave the Hawks sole possession of second place in the division (although the Chiefs have four games in hand). There was also a bit of an imbroglio towards the end of the game, and it’ll be interesting to see if any hard feelings from those fisticuffs carry over to the rematch tomorrow.

It’s a busy week here, with four home games in a span of six days, a stretch only slightly less brutal than sitting through a Two and a Half Men marathon. Anyway, in case you missed it last week, here are some news items that hit the wires over the holidays, one about some additional televised games, and another about three players invited to play in the NHL/CHL Prospects game.

Also, don’t forget the New Year’s Eve game Thursday starts at 8 p.m. It gives fans with other plans a chance to get to their party after the game, or fans can hang out with us and skate with the team. In addition to the skating Vrooman Sr. and Jr. will be hosting a live post-game show at center ice as people skate around them. They’ll be interviewing players and coaches, and you can submit a question by e-mailing it to
