* assuming technology works the way I think it does
Mike Chen on his blog has thought about the prospects of someday having a Winter Classic in California, but for now, I suppose this circus they have going in Chicago will do. Whatever the hype, it's still a 2-to-3 point game between two teams solidly in the west's top-eight. And for a majority of BoC squads, that matters (wink!).
James Mirtle, in some circles known as the "Winter Classic of Bloggers", is hosting a mega-liveblog that involves many points of this SBN interweb plus the Yahooity of Puck DaddY! -- with all that web-savvy, who knows what might happen? At any rate, I'm on the panel of hosts as a "possible show up" -- because who really knows where or in what shape I'll be in this morning (oh yeah, I pre-recorded this post last night, in case I somehow found myself too hammered to do anything sensible later). I may show up, I may stumble in halfway through the game and swear up the place, or I might miss it entirely. It's all in fate's hands now.
So if this whole future-posting thing works the way I think it should, this 9 am post should simul-cast the liveblog for the 10 am game. If it all fucks up, just go to Mirtle's site and figure it out from there. (Knocks on wood) Here goes!
