A few random things…

A few odds and ends that I want to mention…

War Room: This week, I will be on “The War Room” on Tuesday instead of Wednesday. Since Wednesday is the trade deadline, “Got ‘Em! Need ‘Em!” is being bumped to Tuesday. But just for this week. For those of you who have XM Radio, the show is on Channel 204 at 10 AM CST. And if you don’t, I have an archive of my radio appearances here.

New Members: Thanks to David Jameson, Mariner1 and Wax Wombat for becoming the newest “Puck Junkies.” This blog now has 34 members.

Welcome to the Blogroll: I’ve added a few hockey blogs to my reading list. The Real DFG, maintained by Tim, is a blog about hockey cards and the Pittsburgh Penguins. A Little Chippy, maintained by Katherine, is a blog that focuses on the Chicago Blackhawks, but also touches on cards and collectibles.

New Blogs: The hockey card blogging niche just got a little bigger, with Open Ice Hits and Drop the Gloves! adding their two cents on the hobby. I’ve also linked to them from my blogroll.

Free Hockey cards March 2: The Ottawa Senators, Toronto Maple Leafs and Pittsburgh Penguins will all give away free hockey cards at their respective home games on Tuesday, March 2. The first 10,000 fans at each game will be given a pack of Upper Deck hockey cards that contains 5 exclusive cards of that particular team. Anyone who finds themselves with an extra set they’d like to trade, please contact me.

Art Show: On an unrelated note, those of you in Chicago may be interested to know that I am curating an art show called Art of Play, which is about video games, traditional games and toys. Want to know more? Check out the show’s website.

And finally…due to the art show I’m curating, as well as final projects in my two grad classes, I may be a bit scant on posts over the next two weeks. Once I get this show, a final paper, a final presentation, a final photography project and a final website behind me, I’ll be back to doting over this site like I normally do.

  1. Thanks for the link! I already have enough cards, books, and collectibles to post some once or twice a week…

    I've got to check out that exhibit; it's been way too long since I went to an art opening at Columbia.
