I lost my job at the end of summer last year. Shortly before the pre-season started (see where this is going?). All year Nucks Misconduct and has been a cool place to divert some of the oodles of time i've had. It helps that everyone here is pretty cool and talking hockey here is like talking hockey with your buds as opposed to most places where all the comments seem to be written by angry 12 year old boys. So, thanks everyone for giving me a club to hang out in that didn't cost me any membership fees! I started a new gig today, but it doesn't mean I'm going to not being hanging out here calling bullshit, learning and disseminating, and even occasionally (frequently?) pissing people off. Special props to the actual NM team, Sean, Yankee, Waach and Missy for being good, humorous and humble writers. Maybe this is cheeseball but I'm a cheeseball guy, and it's true, NM has given me a small bit of focus these past several months.
