Across the Pond
My apologies to Bill Meltzer. I kind of fell off the back of the wagon with posting links to his Across the Pond feature articles. Sorry, Bill! Here’s the link for the archives, which includes the most recent article. You have a lot of reading to catch up on…at least 14 articles.

Truth is, with my two favorite hockey players gone, I’ve had a difficult time getting involved in the games this season. The so-called All-Star game didn’t help to pique my interest.
