My son, a U.S. Marine, is here on his last leave before deploying to Afghanistan so he wanted to go to tonight's game.
It would be nice for him to get to see a win.
I'd also like to give a shout out to your son. Thank him for his service. Semper Fi, God bless and God speed for his deployment. His service is greatly appreciated in our household.

I believe I remember the first win against the Habs. It was a 2-0 road win, long after the April tee times were booked. So maybe December. I might be wrong about it being the first win, but goodness were those people pissed. Booing through the entire game. I seriously expected those people to set the city on fire. "Columbus? Je deteste de Blue Jackets!" along with assorted French profanities, fist shaking, and molotov cocktails.
Thanks for the linky. It makes it easier for my five-year-old daughter to understand why I complain about the CBJ so much.
"Dad, why do you hate the Blue Jackets?"
"No, baby, I don't hate the Blue Jackets."
"But I heard you pounding on your desk. You were yelling the things my mom says I shouldn't say."
Since they usually collapse in the third, she'll simply sit here dying of boredom until bedtime, which is usually first intermission. For all of the games we've watched/listened to, she's cheered goals with me maybe twenty times this year.
