  1. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/how-covid-spreads.html The two most common ways to transmit COVID-19 are through respiratory droplets and airborne transmission. Spending hours together sitting on the bench and sharing the locker room, talking, yelling, laughing, coughing, sneezing, breathing hard, etc. It would practically be a miracle not to spread it under these conditions. I'm as happy as anybody to have some games to watch, but objectively, holding team sporting events -especially indoor sporting events- right now is kinda nutty.
  2. Last year mid-Feb through late March, my wife and I both had what, at the time, we thought was the worst cold we'd ever had. Our friends kept saying they thought we had COVID, and we kept telling them they were crazy. But we both got pink eye, which neither of us ever had before, and our respiratory issues lasted weeks and weeks. Then later I read that pink eye was one of the possible symptoms. So now I kinda think it's very possible that we did have it after all. Anyway, last week I found this about how the NHL COVID Protocol list works. It doesn't answer every question, but it covers the basics.
  3. Couple years ago when I still worked in the city, I was on the train home one evening and a guy across from me had the most impressive combover I've ever seen. His hair was parted on both sides, with the hair combed over from each side and sort of ... I guess "interlaced" is the right word ... on top of his head. So, from either side it looked perfectly normal. And honestly, it looked pretty OK from the front, too; it kinda took awhile to notice that something was not right. Gotta say, I was (and still am) pretty impressed. I can't imagine how long it must take to comb it like that. Pretty sure I wouldn't be able to accomplish it.
  4. Thought I'd pop in to say I just started reading Doc's new book. I'm only about 2 1/2 chapters in, but it's fun so far. It really captures his enthusiasm, and as I read I can almost hear him telling the stories. If you're considering it, I'd say go for it.
  5. I read that donations were pouring in the first couple days, but I have not seen anything in their social media about any specific fundraising effort.
  6. A friend of mine texted me a pic of himself getting lunch at Hobby's today, so they're open for takeout now. Told him best case scenario for opening the dining room is sometime next week. Again, that's best case.... On the topic of what great guys Mark and Michael are: A couple seasons ago I was to meet my wife there for dinner before a game. She drove from home, and I took the train from NY to Newark and walked from the station. It was POURING rain so hard that my umbrella was completely useless. When I got there I was soaked. Mark asked me what size shirt I wear, and gave me a free Hobby's shirt and a plastic bag to put my wet shirt in. Totally above and beyond the call of duty. Great guys, & a great deli.
  7. He said there are more than 20 autographs, so I’m guessing its the entire team. But I don’t know what kind of jersey it is. And certainly they don’t. He’s a casual fan at best, and I don’t think she’s a fan at all. She just bought a raffle ticket or something to support whatever the cause was. Thanks for the info.
  8. A friend's wife just won a jersey signed by the 1995 team. Any idea what that's worth? Just a ballpark figure. They're not looking to sell it; just curious about it's value.
  9. I've been using FuboTV for Devils games all season. It's pretty good. There's occasional pixelization and/or stuttering during most games, but generally not enough to hurt my ability to enjoy the games. (And really, MSG has issues of their own often enough, so I don't always know for sure if the problem is Fubo itself, or my internet connection, or MSG's feed.) The only thing I don't like is that their DVR doesn't allow me to watch the recording before the game is over. So I mostly watch live and suffer through the commercials.
  10. I feel pretty sure I've shared this before, but years ago my wife and I were at the airport coming back from Christmas in NC (where our families are). The Devils had played the Hurricanes in Raleigh the night before, and we happened to be on the same flight as Chico and one of the TV production guys. I believe Chico would have been perfectly happy to sit there at the gate all day long talking to us. So incredibly nice. Several years later I happened to run into him in "Championship Plaza" before a game. We spoke a bit, and I mentioned having seen him at the airport. Suddenly a look of recognition came across his face and he said "Oh yeah! I remember that. And how's your wife?" Now, of course, he could have been faking it just to be nice, but the fact that he asked me about my wife makes me think he really did remember. I was pretty impressed. I can't imagine how many fans he must have talked to between those two encounters....
  11. Looking forward to having him back.
  12. Due to circumstances beyond our control we had to give up our season tickets this year, so I feel relatively confident this will be a Cup season. If so, you guys can thank my wife and me.
  13. Well, as a 6-year season ticket holder I don't think I qualify as "casual." But I will cop to not having much of an eye for (or interest in) fashion.
  14. Man, you guys are a tough crowd. I didn't see the game the other night, but I watched some of the highlights. If I hadn't already known about the change, I'm not 100% sure I would have even noticed.
