I don't spend much time here talking about my real job or personal life — because, who cares. But it's a bittersweet day so I'm making an exception. A great, longtime friend and colleague is leaving Seattle for a new job in Colorado. Today is our last day working together.
Try to imagine a Floridian (me) bonding with an Australian (him) over hockey while living in Seattle — a city without a pro team. It's a weird story to say the least. And in addition to hockey, he's a big fan of Australian rules football. So when Noah Balkovec sent in hockey uniform concepts for all 18 teams in the Australian Football League, I had to save it for today.
Anyway, the Lightning visit the Avalanche in Denver on Oct. 24. See you then, Toby!
