We arrived a while ago. I have since checked in, called Mark, had issues with the hotel wifi, and logged in with my cell phone connection so I could post this.
It's really hitting me, since seeing all the Phantoms stuff outside the arena, that my team is gone. REALLY gone. Not Coming Back gone.
I did subscribe to the AHL cybercast, so I could watch games online, but that's not the same thing. It is, however, far better than not being able to watch at all.
Pics will be forthcoming tonight or tomorrow.
