What I Wore to Work Today: April 24, 2013
Pants: Goodwill, refashioned
Hockey is back! The first regular season game was/is October 3 against the Vancouver Canucks. I’m listening to the game as I type this on Thursday night, so it’s like time travel that this post isn’t going live until Saturday. Don’t tell me if the Sharks win/won, I want to be surprised.

You know what I’m not doing while typing this post? Listening to a hockey game. Because the first several weeks of the NHL season have been officially canceled. There’s a lockout and when I last checked a resolution was not yet in sight. I guess it’s time to start following another sport. The Arizona Cardinals are doing quite well so far, losing their first game to the Rams after starting 4-0. The part I’m having trouble figuring out is how they can skate on the grass.
And I’m back! I went to San Jose for a birthday vacation and two Sharks games. We saw the Sharks beat the Penguins 5-0 on Saturday night, then a 4-3 winning game against Nashville on Tuesday. On Wednesday we were walking around downtown Los Gatos, which is a pretty, upscale town of about 30,000 and happened to see some Sharks players. We were behind two of them in line at a coffee shop and then passed a couple more outside a little while later. After some debate, we decided that we would ask if we could take a picture, since we had flown in from Arizona just to see their game against Pittsburgh, and it was a group of younger players so maybe they weren’t tired of being hounded by fans yet. They generously agreed to a picture, wrangled together by 3rd-year veteran Setoguchi on the left. (And he’s still only 22, man I’m getting old.)
Earlier that day I had considered putting on make-up and generally making myself presentable. “But then, why would I care about looking nice just to take a walk into town?” I said. Why indeed…
