Are you ready for some hockey?

The annual National Hockey League Winter Classic is half way into the third period right now, with the New York Rangers leading the Philadelphia Flyers, 3-2. You know what that means:

Citizens Bank Park

Yes, baseball fans, I had to update the Citizens Bank Park page with a hockey version diagram. As you can see, they built a temporary bleacher section in what would be deep center field. They should have built such bleachers a lot closer to the ice, I think. The Flyers' usual home ice is Wells Fargo Center, formerly known as Wachovia Center. At least that's what my 2012 World Almanac says. Back in June 2009 I learned better than to express opinions or facts about hockey, so that's all I'll say for now. smile

I also learned from long-time fan Matt Ereth that an outdoor college hockey match between Ohio State and Michigan will be held at Progressive Field in Cleveland on January 15. I suppose I'll have to do that one as well.

At some point I plan to do a historical chronology of pro sports franchises, comparing which cities had how many pro teams from the four major sports on a decade by decade basis. Stay tuned...

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
