So, Eric has started posting the Cannon Blasts series a few times a week. But, after the way Thursday's comments section really took off, I thought it would be cool for our community to have an open thread on non-Cannon-Blasts weekdays for people just to hang out and chat... about hockey, or about other stuff.
For everything else, there's this thread. I'll go first with some topics:
- It's Matt Wagner's Birthday! Bon anniversaire, mon ami!
- This morning was one of the coldest mornings I can ever remember in my 37+ years living in Ohio. What are some of your "worst" weather memories?
- I got the chance to skate Wednesday night on the ice at the Schottenstein Center, thanks to a former rec league teammate who works there and got some ice time for us to practice/scrimmage. It's so much better than any of the rec-level ice in Columbus. For those of you who play/have played, what's the coolest place you've ever played?
See how this can go?
Only one disclaimer: we're not in the business of starting fights, so I'd politely ask that we keep things out of two specific topics: religion and politics. I know we drifted into the almost-political yesterday talking about government, but we kept it pretty non-partisan. If there's one thing I've learned, though, in all my years, it's that those are two subjects about which people's opinions almost never change. So, let's just not go there, OK?
Thanks! Enjoy! Let's make this a new, cool tradition!
