Day Off In Detroit

The Caps are off today, and so am I.

Detroit is getting hammered by a winter storm right now, so I'm not sure I'm even getting out of Tampa. Wish me luck and check back tomorrow for the latest from Joe Louis Arena (assuming, that is, I get there.)

Let's see...Detroit or Florida....


Sit tight.

Good luck getting there and flying back, Tarik!

And while waiting for the flight watch this victory celebration by Jurcina's fellow country men:

I hope Alex will show up in cross country skies when Caps will win Stanley Cup :-)

Sounds like you need me.

As many times as O'Hare has screwed me over, better find a spot in Tampa to camp out, or bring it on home and watch it in the comfort of home with a brew or two and watch it on TV. I don't get Versus, so if you have an extra seat or two, I'll bring the drinks!

I wonder why the Caps only play against really tough teams when they are on Versus...

Things are looking up. My flight is allegedly en route to Tampa from Detroit after a slight delay for de-icing. So perhaps I'll get outta here after all. (The free wireless in the Tampa airport is money, btw.)

@Drinkingpartner ...after sampling the Tampa nightlife until 3 a.m., you're the last person I need to hang out with right now. :)

I hope the team is already in Detroit...?

Tarik - what happens in Tampa stays in Tampa.

@Jill

The team left right after the game. So they are already there.

Corey from America's Newspaper reports it's an ugly scene -- five or six inches of snow already.

Any Caps fans planning to make the trip up to Hershey tonight for the Bears game, don't bother. Game is postponed due to a power outage at Giant Center and most of the Hershey area.
