About Jon
Thank You For Not ...

1) using profanity or any euphemisms for profanity
2) personally attacking other commenters
3) baiting other commenters
4) arguing for the sake of arguing
5) discussing politics
6) using hyperbole when something less will suffice
7) using sarcasm in a way that can be misinterpreted negatively
8) making the same point over and over again
9) typing "no-hitter" or "perfect game" to describe either in progress
10) being annoyed by the existence of this list
11) commenting under the obvious influence
12) claiming your opinion isn't allowed when it's just being disagreed with

Letting the Air Out of the Puck

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Like poets commissioned to write a series of odes to a flat tire, the Times headline writers braved the ongoing stalemate between National Hockey League owners and players.

Talk about creating a show about nothing:

February 4: NHL Labor Talks to Continue
February 5: Deal Makers Talk of Deal Breakers
February 5: NHL Has a Hunch Union Will Bend
February 8: Union Says NHL Players' Solidarity Intact
February 9: NHL Is Taking a Final Shot
February 10: NHL Sets Alarm Clock
February 11: NHL Season Is Closer to Point of No Return
February 12: Deadline No Help to NHL Stalemate
February 13: Insider Talks Yield Little for NHL
February 14: A Late Bid to Break the Ice
February 15: NHL Talks Appear Frozen
February 16: NHL Season on Brink
February 16: Game Off! NHL Cancels Season

That's a sad story. My condolences to the hockey community. Hooray for Spring Training ... you can't take playing ball for granted these days.
