Topic #1: I told myself at the end of the playoffs last year that I'd grow a playoff beard this year, but now I'm not so sure. Is all the patchiness and scratching worth it? Maybe I'll just try and grow a Rolston patch or some Gaborik chin stubble. Or maybe, a full-on Grizzly Adams lumberjack beard. The choices are plentiful, but I'm not so sure I've got the guts to do it.
Topic #2: Canucks in Edmonton tonight and I don't care. You'd think that with Minnesota and Vancouver in this heated race that this would be a game I'd want to watch, but no. Edmonton is a shell of themselves and I have no confidence whatsoever in them tonight. It is never fun to watch the Nucks beat up on a weaker opponent and that should be the case tonight.
Topic #3: Why does Katie Couric bother me so? I can't put my finger on it, but her general perkyness drives me bonkers. Give me Soledad O'Brien or that financial chick from CNBC any time, just no more Couric-mania.
