Bienvenue, mes amis. It's been a while since I posted. Pretty much broke that promise of regular updates. The only thing consistent is my inconsistency. As you have likely gathered, the school year is in full swing and I am, as per usual, up to my neck in work. Don't take that as necessarily a... Continue Reading →
Back to Never Again
As some of you know, I do not sleep well. I haven't slept well in 10+ years. There are a million reasons for this. There are rare occasions when I wake in the middle of the night and have a moment of clarity or creativity. I had one of those the other night. It wasn't... Continue Reading →
On Being Useful and Living Long
Howdy, folks. I haven't abandoned you. I haven't forgotten. It's been a pretty wild last few weeks. Come, take a walk with me. In my last writing, I mentioned some plans going forward. The good news? Those plans actually became actions. Having been back in NC for about two weeks, I have begun, albeit slowly... Continue Reading →
Destroying the Village
Howdy folks. I know what you're thinking; "what is this madness? Walt posting twice? In less than a week? What dark forces are at play here?" Well, there are no dark forces at work, at least none of which I am aware. I did say I was planning on bringing the blog back, and I'm... Continue Reading →
Well, this isn't awkward. Nope. Not at all. Howdy, folks. I know it's been a while. A long, long while. A lot has happened since I last wrote. Some good, some bad, some in-between type things. First, and foremost, I feel I need to apologize for effectively allowing this blog to go to pot since... Continue Reading →
“The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls”
It has been a long, long time since I have written anything. It wasn't for lack of material about which to write (NHL Lockout, replacement refs in the NFL, the Pittsburgh Pirates laughable collapse, the election, my personal life, etc). It was simply a matter of professional life absolutely consuming every waking moment from July... Continue Reading →
Winning the Parise Battle Loses the War?
Before I get fully underway, I first want to apologize upfront for the title being slightly misleading. I want it to be clear, from this moment forward, that I am a big supporter of the "do whatever you have to in order to land Parise" line of thinking. Keep that in mind as I walk... Continue Reading →
Post Draft, Pre-Free Agency
With some of my thoughts and feelings out about the "Shero Draft Strategy," I wanted to discuss a few thoughts I've had regarding the Pens going forward into free agency. I, personally, don't buy into the Ryan Suter stuff. I honestly think it's a bunch of smoke and mirrors from Camp Shero to get teams... Continue Reading →
The Deep End of the Fan Pool
I am, by and large, a big personality. Those who know me in real life know that I can be...a little much to take. Those who only know me from online are fairly certain that I am mentally unstable and in desperate need of various medications. They very well may all be right, but that... Continue Reading →
Well, that happened.
Folks, it's about to get real ugly in here. I would have said it's about to stink in here, but the Pens did enough stinking for everyone. Season recap, grades, and looking ahead coming this week. You've been warned.
