Avoiding the Super/Puppy/Ad Bowl

February 2nd, 2014 · No Comments · amarc, hockey, sports

Perhaps it is only because we do not host or go to any Superbowl parties. However, we are here today with my annual not-watching the Superbowl game day. My normal activity for the day is to go to a Washington Capitals game, they typically play early on the day the Superbowl is held and today […]

Nationals Spring Training Pilgrimage – Two Days Down, Two To Go

March 15th, 2013 · No Comments · amarc, baseball, government, hockey, mobility, washington nationals

For those of you who have never done so, I would recommend it (either for the Nationals if that is your favorite baseball team, or for whichever team is). The weather is pretty nice, especially the further north you live, the pace is informal, the […]

January 13th, 2013 · No Comments · hockey

So I am happy to report for those who do not know (and for the vast majority who do not care) that the National Hockey League (NHL) will in fact have a hockey season for 2012-13. Well, 2013 anyway, consisting of 48 games, 24 at home. The article about the Capitals schedule is here, http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capitals-insider/wp/2013/01/12/capitals-schedule-released/.

The NHL and Revenue Sharing

December 30th, 2012 · No Comments · baseball, hockey

I wrote about the Hockey Lockout earlier this month, http://www.ourownlittlecorner.com/2012/12/08/my-two-cents-about-the-hockey-lockout/. Sadly the lockout continues though there are some signs that it may be finally coming to an end. It seems to me that the fundamental problem with the NHL is that the owners have not come to terms with the economic realities of modern professional […]

My Two Cents About the Hockey Lockout

December 8th, 2012 · No Comments · baseball, hockey

My spectator sports life normally has symmetry about it. Six months of the year I care about the Washington Nationals and six months of the year I care about the Washington Capitals. While I notice that Washington has a professional basketball team and have flung in my face that it has a professional football team, […]

April 9th, 2012 · No Comments · cloud computing, cyber-security, government business, social networking, technology

With the Washington Capitals having made the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Phrase “Off Center” means something a bit different than it might have a week ago. Regardless I had a great time recording Mark Amtower’s show last Friday, for broadcast today, Monday, April 9th, at noon, and rebroadcast Thursday, April 12th at 11am. The other […]

Ellen and Dan’s Excellent Adventure in Nova Scotia – Day 1

August 1st, 2010 · No Comments · travel

Ellen had long expressed an interest in visiting Prince Edwards Island, the site of the Anne of Green Gables stories, and nearly Nova Scotia. I had always heard it was a very beautiful place to visit, the high’s were going to be in the 70’s, not the 90’s, and going would be consistent with my […]
