OGA's Excellent Adventure Continues

It seemed as though fate was conspiring against OGA earlier today. After a morning run into Manhattan for a business meeting, we were going to hop the 7 train back to our hotel in Queens, pick up our car and hit the road. We didn't count on the 7 train being shut down. After a leisurely 40-block stroll down Roosevelt Ave, we reached our car and hit the road.

A tragic error in judgment by a blogger who shall remain nameless led us to try to reach I-95 via the Midtown and Lincoln tunnels. Who knew that traffic through Manhattan on a Saturday afternoon would be so unspeakably horrible? Not me.

Long story short, we made it to Washington just in time for the 2nd preiod to begin. Looks like the Caps were waiting for OGA to show before they started playing. The 'Hawks led, 2-0, but we're now tied. The 3rd period is underway and the house is rockin'. More later...

Sounds like a case of what I've learned to be classic "prior planning"! Good update...just waiting for the report of the final score. Remember, target arrival time + 1 hour = on time arrival. You're alright, Big Tex!

Way to stick up for you man little lady.......by night a hockey afficionado, by day Big Tex is a mapper by trade and still has the ability to get lost......doesn't seem to bode well for Big Tex.....to quote how he should feel, I turn to the immortal words of Denis Lemieux....."You do that, you go to the box, you know. Two minutes, by yourself, you know and you feel shame, you know. And then you get free."
