on not blogging...or, on blogging...about hockey

Remind me why I set up this blog thingie?

To write? To render my feeble brainstorms public? To ruminate about what's been pissing me off/inspiring me/etc. in the world of politics?

That latter one was my main source of inspiration.

More recently though I've found it harder to say what I really want to say.

As far as opinionated bureaucrats with attitude go, I'm no Ottawonk, I guess.

Also, the circus that is the Liberal Party of Canada is just... it takes me beyond my ability to take the high road, and since I didn't intend for this blog to become an outpost for intrapartisan potshots (which I have no right to make anyway, not being intraparty), I think the healthiest thing for me to do is to back off wringing my hands over federal politics together.

The Bouchard-Taylor commission has been predictably embarrassing/hilarious, with only occasional gusts to enlightened which, I fear, will likely go unnoticed in the final report. I have a treatise-in-progress on this, which will go up sometime in the coming weeks.

Music's on hold for me.

That leaves hockey. Happily, this has become a rich source of blogging interest for me. I've spent quite a bit of time yacking here the last few weeks, and I'm not the least bit ashamed to admit that I loved it.

So...point of discussion.

What the hell is Tom Kostopoulos doing getting power play time?
