Sunday morning homily XVIII

Looking back, the Lightning's training camp last September seems like years ago. It's been a long season. Players are grumpy. Hounds are grumpy. And, unfortunately, hotels are getting grumpy.

I wonder whether the NHL would consider taking a week off in early March to allow every team to rest, get healthy and just plain chill out.

Though NHL teams can't do that, I can. Colin's on his spring break from kindergarten, so we're looking forward to our first here in Florida.

We'll be hanging out, going fishing, hitting the beach and doing what tourists do when they're here. No Disney World, though. Nope, Colin wants to go to Dinosaur World. It's closer and much cheaper, too.

We'll get in a couple hounding sessions, too. Even the Lightning, so Colin can thank Marty St. Louis for this. Yeah, I know everyone is grumpy. Doesn't matter. The season wears on.

In sight

Some time this week, between the Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning and the Washington Capitals, I should score the 1,250th autographed puck of the collection. Who do you think it will be? With four pucks for Florida's Martin Gelinas, in Tampa on Tuesday, he'd be a good guess. If not him, it'll likely be a Lightning player.


Isn't it hard to believe that Tampa Bay's Vinny Lecavalier became the first Lightning player to ever reach 100 points in a season? He still needs one goal for 50. Maybe he'll get it Tuesday against the Panthers.
