    Great story about Nyjer Morgan. The Nationals are lucky to have him. He's not nearly as talented as our previous '09 center fielders (Lastings Milledge & Elijah Dukes) but he's producing at a major league level now.

    Are you enjoying Michigan? I moved from D.C. to Ann Arbor 20 years ago, but never felt entirely comfortable.

    Love your work.

    It's that time of year again. It's the best postseason in all of sports. It's the NHL playoffs. I decided to try my hand at my first hockey article in a while with my Eastern Conference preview. If you have time, take a look.

    Thanks, Christian Karcole

    I was recently inspired to write this piece about "America's Pastime". If you have time to take a look at this, it would be great.

    Thanks, Christian

    BTW. Go Flyers!

    I thought you might be interested in reading this. I'm pre-empting the NHL's announcement, scheduled for sometime next week.

    Thanks for becoming a fan and for the nice comment. Playing hockey was something I always wanted to do, but it was too expensive so I played soccer.

    I live in Studio City just over the hill from Hollywood.

    I think it's awesome that you're working in hockey! I'm going to the LA Kings job fair in March and hope to make some contacts.

    I might visit Saugatuck this summer! Just around the corner from you.

    Take care...
