But to ease your crushing disappointment (ha! I slay me!), here are a few things:
Super-cute "sleeping kid and cats" photo at the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee today.
For the hockey fans, a biased but really funny roundup of the Northeast Division at the half-season point from Stanley Cup of Chowder. Sample:
A lot of laughs there, even if (like me) you pay more attention to one team than the whole league.
- A healthy Connolly would help that a lot, but if a core part of your season planning includes the words "82 games from Tim Connolly", you might as well start planning for the draft lottery.
- Andrei Markov, their best player, has missed the entire season so far with an injury. Excuse me while I sit on the Throne of Amazement and drink from my Goblet of Incredulity.
- A team that was predicted by many (including me) to contend for the division title has been a Costa Concordia-level shipwreck.
I did not take this picture.
But I had to look twice to be sure.
And Carlos could have captioned it, truly.
