Cause now I write about hockey...
Since then, I've skated a little, but only recreational figure skating and very little of that. However, I've lived in both Buffalo and Winnipeg. In both places, hockey is always in the news and in the air. When I heard of the big trade this week--a couple players going to Buffalo and vice versa, I realized I had only a very small thing in common with them. I wrote it about it...and it came out today on the CBC here:
Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian: Are you curious about Buffalo?
For those who know me, this whole thing is peculiarly funny...especially because I wrote another piece about the positive educational benefits of play (something I actually know about, because of that grad. degree in Education) but I didn't sell that one. No, I sell the hockey essay. Of course.

What I like best about it is that the columnist took the whole thing seriously...and it ran as his lede. All in all, a very sweet couple of days--like a professional Valentine. I feel grateful.
On the home front, we're getting a lot of juicy hugs and kisses from three year olds, who even gifted us last night with only one wake up and sleeping 45 minutes late, until 7:15 AM. Now that was the greatest Valentine!
