Some items of note:
- A couple new(ish) CBJ blogs added to the sidebar: Light the Lamp and The Jackets Press
- In the nexus between the blogosphere and the MSM (gawd, I hate that term), Michael Arace is mostly off the CBJ beat for the Dispatch. Aaron Portzline and Tom Reed will handle most of the coverage of the team, and they’ve also launched a new blog, Puck-rakers, focusing on the Jackets. They promise daily updates, sometimes up to three or four posts a day. I’m looking forward to it.
- In the print Dispatch, we learn the reasons behind some of the camp absences: Foote has a strained hamstring, Modin has back spasms, invitee Joel Bouchard apparently took restaurant recommendations from Ray Whitney and has food poisoning, and Jiri Novotny is stuck in the Czech Republic with visa problems.
- I missed mentioning him in the earlier post about ex-Saints in the pros, but Rich Peverley will be in the lineup for Nashville this afternoon.
- On a more serious note, Bethany is looking for donations to help the family of a close friend of hers who recently passed away. He didn’t have health insurance. If you can spare a little, visit her site.
