On page 2 of The Weekly Standard‘s profile of Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is this fun mention:
Growing up, Pawlenty played hockey. He is still a rabid NHL fan. The first website he visits each morning is hockeyfights.com, which shows combat highlights from the previous night’s games.
Very cool. I don’t get political here, but I’ll have to decide what to start lobbying for…
As I type this the Rangers are taking on the Sabres in overtime on NBC.
I can’t wait for the Ducks and Canucks on Versus tonight. I know it’s only been two games, but I wasn’t expecting this series to be tied after game one ended.
Both networks have done a great job so far during the playoffs. When I get them, the HD picture and camera angles have been great. Definitely an improvement over last season.
