    And you, with an average of one post/day for 4 years, don't have too much time on your hands and have a life?

    (Sorry, couldn't resist. )

    skate, I haven't had the chance to say it, but the boards just wouldn't be the same without your particular brand of whimsy and sarcasm. (and no sarcasm from me either). And it's all the better that you're a WHRB ghost.

    Back on topic, yep, that was a funny interview. I enjoyed it very much.

    I quoted her for the truth in her statement....regarding Boston drivers that is.

    Overall I thought the piece was simply splendid.

That was all I had a problem with. That's just my opinion.

    Which is what made it interesting and engaging. In an age of truncated phrases sent hither and yon via texting, and conversation which all too often mirrors the same, it is nice to see someone make use of her erudition.

    I just thought she was funny. And what's the point of putting in all that work at Harvard if you can't drop a few three and four syllable words from time to time?

    Thankfully, neither I, nor those with whom I shared this article, had any issue with the vocabulary Ms. Cahow employed. If, indeed, the "average" person would have to use a dictionary for reference while learning about the average day of an elite hockey player, I see that as the problem. The writing works for me.

    She's a good player besides and has a good sense of humor! The songs to go with each to-do made it that much better!
    Those Ivy leaguers say the darnedest things,ehh?

    Hmm, I re-read as I didn't remember any and am completely clueless as to what words you are referring to unless you are from Minnesota and the words are "passing lane" :-).
