In this edition of Shrapnel: Lines for tonight, we're talkin' 'bout practice, fantasy leagues, and more!
Lets do this.
Probable lineups for tonight:
With each passing day, I'm more and more impressed with Claude Noel and his efforts to get this team to where it needs to be. He's a teacher of the game, and he wants his players to be students of the game.
Even practices are more lively than earlier in the year under Coach Noel.
Hey remember that time NBC decided to pass on airing the US/Canada Olympic game to show...ice dancing (what?). I'm not kidding. That. Just. Happened.
Taking part in any fantasy leagues? As if we didn't know already, two of our guys are on fire right now. Be sure to pick them up if you haven't already.
Quote of the day:
"They've been on the road a long time now, so there is some sympathy there that I don't feel for them. They'll be tired."
