Persson ‘doubtful’ this weekend

John Persson is “very doubtful” for this weekend,” Scott Pellerin said, with that upper-body injury. Without him, Jon Sim slipped into Persson’s spot on the right with Joey Diamond and Johan Sundstrom.

Otherwise things looked mostly as they did last weekend. They won’t skate tomorrow after a hard skate today (another long week), so updates as warranted then.

Had forgotten that yesterday was originally supposed to be Cool Fun 101. Hopefully when it happens Dec. 10, it’s a better game than today’s AHL morning game. (At least, as of this writing, when it’s 6-1 late in the second.)

Via Darren Dreger on Twitter, a neat search into the origins of a ubiquitous celebration that’s relatively new.

Very neat, via old colleague Ben Doody: The New York Times’ mayoral endorsements, back to my alma mater’s own Seth Low.

And RIP, Alvin Clinkscales, though that was definitely not the way I wanted to get to know the man. Sounds like quite a guy.
