Wednesday Roundup/Gamenight: Sens @ Caps

[ Preview - Preview - Official Gameday Thread - Hockey Night In Washington (OWO)]

For tonight's game I'm going to be filling in for Eric at Off Wing Opinion - the #1 hockey blog on the internet - sitting in the press box, hitting the media buffet and the locker room and blogging (though not live-blogging, thanks to League restrictions) before and after the game. Be sure to stop by Off Wing and check it out, complete with a preview of the game.

At some point, I'll also probably have a recap of my impressions of what real journos do, but that'll be back here. If you have any questions going into the night, let me know. Otherwise, I'm likely to just keep my mouth shut so as to avoid the following Farley-esque exchange:
JP: [ uncomfortable ] You... you... you remember when you scored that goal against Phoenix?

AO: Yeah, sure.

JP: That was awesome.

So the league restricts live blogging from the game???

JP said...

My understanding is that since I will be a credentialed member of the media (but not a TV or radio guy), I am prohibited from providing a widely-disseminated live report of the game while it is in progress.

I got to tell him, "I saw your hat trick in Anaheim." So that was pretty cool. :)

Ask AO how well he can quote from Rocky III.

Look who's hitting the big time! Good luck, JP - we lesser Caps bloggers will be pulling for you and I know you'll do great :)

Meanwhile, I'm taking a break from the cheap seats to attend the game with my stepmother in the not-so-cheap if you see a lunatic screaming and jumping around in the lower bowl (not hard to spot by the way), that's me!

Thanks for your support, all. I had a blast and really would never have had the opportunity if not for you guys.

You keep reading and commenting and I'll keep writing. Deal?
