Taking the vernacular from Obama’s stimulus program, the Nanooks are “shovel ready”. No “plan and design” work necessary this season. No question on who is in charge. No doubt about “scope of work”, where we’re headed, and how to get there. Everything is ready to go. Now it’s just a lot of hard work.
Scoring was a struggle last year. If we don’t turn that around, “shovel ready” may refer to how quick and deep a hole we dig ourselves this season.
