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.


This page will be updated several times during the game starting at around 4:00 PM Eastern.

The NHL and the NHLPA have reached a tentative agreement ending the 112-day lockout.  The NHL will run a 48-game season with games scheduled to start around January 18.

Football will be the talk of the game as the Indianapolis Colts battle the Baltimore  Colts Ravens and the Seattle Seahawks tangle with the Washington Redskins.  Football ends with the bowl between Kent State and Arkansas State.  (I know where Arkansas is on the map, but I can’t find Kent.)

The Baltimore Ravens advanced to the Division Round by beating the Indianapolis Colts 24-9.  Odd thing is that at one time this game would have been the Baltimore Colts at the Cleveland Browns.  The Ravens won with solid defense and a steady offense.  They will travel to Denver and lose to the Broncos next Saturday.

The Seattle Seahawks went to Washington (DC, not the state – the state would have been a home game for them) and spanked my Washington Redskins 24-14.  😦   The turning point was when RGIII hurt his knee.  The Redskins were leading 14-0 before the roof caved in on the open-aired stadium.  Seattle travels to Atlanta next Sunday in the battle of Angry Birds.  Unlike the other victors this weekend, the Seahawks have a good chance of winning next weekend.
