Dear Loyal Readers,
Given the Big Ten Media days Monday and Tuesday and teaching at Northwestern's Medill School on Tuesdays -- all in Chicago -- plus full-day meetings the rest of the week and the UM hockey alumni meeting and -- well, I'll spare you my sob story, if it isn't too late to do so. Long story short, it's a week off at the Bacon Blog. I'll probably be able to take one more before the summer's done and we all dig in for a busy fall.
In the meantime, if you want to see former NHL players make me look stupid on the ice (and possibly off it), the Michigan alumni hockey weekend starts tonight at 5:30 at Yost. The first game is 35-and-over (that's me, off the alternate alternate list, for those who didn't play for Michigan and really have no business being on the ice), and the second game featuring current NHLers is at 6:30.
Again, thanks for reading -- we just topped 25K subscribers! -- and I look forward to writing more next week, and the weeks to come. I hope you're enjoying this as much as I am. You've been great!
p.s. If I don't return from tonight's game, avenge my death.
