Off to Washington this afternoon. I’ve been contacted in advance by one representative of the media who’s going to be covering the entire event. If anyone wishes to contact me, email me in the next few hours and I’ll give a cell #. I’ll post up our presentation in a few days. I appreciate the advice and good wishes. Reportedly, Mann is not attending tomorrow’s proceedings; so we won’t be able to sing rugby songs together at the reception after all.
On another topic, I always like it when organizations do smart things. Despite all our writings about “hockey sticks” and despite 20 years of driving children to hockey leagues (if you’re not Canadian, you probably don’t know how time-consuming rep hockey leagues are) , I like basketball much better than hockey. I watch an inordinate amount of basketball and suffer through the travails of the Toronto Raptors. Today they hired Bryan Colangelo as GM away from the Phoenix Suns. It was a bold move and is receiving great acclaim in Toronto. Restoring confidence is always hard to do and with one bold stroke, they’ve accomplished it.
