I haven’t been able to give a day’s summary of the news for a while and it will be a while before I can.  While I will not be posting daily any more, I will be updating the pages for this blog.  I have already updated the “Celebrity RIP” page and will update the “Champions” page soon after the conclusion of the Super Bowl.  I will add major stories as they happen.

It was a great day for hockey and a sad day for baseball.

The NHL season finally got started after a 121-day lockout of the players by the teams’ owners.  The first game of note was Chicago at Los Angeles where the Kings hoisted their Stanley Cup Championship banner and presented rings to the players.  They then proceeded to play like a team that would rather play golf in April than play playoff hockey.

It was a sad day for baseball as the game lost two legends.  Stan “The Man” Musial  (November 21, 1920 – January 19, 2013) died from natural causes at the age of 92.  Earl Weaver (August 14, 1930 – January 19, 2013) was a legendary manager of the Baltimore Orioles back in the days when they were good.  He died from a heart attack while vacationing on a cruise ship in the Carribean.

It was announced on the news that Conrad Bain had passed away.  He is best remembered for his role as Mr. Drummond in “Different Strokes”.

Pauline Phillips, best known as “Dear Abby” passed away today at the age 0f 94.  Her twin sister was Ann Landers, who had passed in 2002.

The story of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o’s “girlfriend” has to be the most bizarre story going.  He may (or may not) have known that his girlfriend, who recently died from cancer, never existed.  My imaginary girlfriend is alive and well and is a successful supermodel traveling the world.  That is why (aside that she doesn’t exist) nobody has ever met her.
