Good morning

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. I've always enjoyed sharing non-hockey conversation topics in this column, but when losses in six of seven segue into a 6-2 loss to a non-playoff team, it's not the right time to share movie reviews and go Munters hunting. (Admit it, the Munters ... Read More

Good morning, Vancouver

Good morning, Vancouver, and good morning, Insiders. So, Academy Award nominations were revealed this morning. Continuing this site's annual Academy Awards coverage second attempt at movie reviews, LAKI doesn't have any really strong opinions other than hoping Laurie Metcalf wins the Best Support...

Good morning, Calgary

Good morning, Calgary, and good morning, Insiders. The Kings' spread out post-Christmas break, pre-bye week Western Canada jaunt has reached its final stop, and lo, there are tall buildings. They are so tall, in fact, and LAKI is at the base of the U-shaped hotel, that the photos represent the ve... Read More

Good morning, Edmonton

Good morning, Edmonton, and good morning, Insiders. There are a number of NHL cities that are great hockey towns; one of them, Detroit, even has a trademarked HOCKEYTOWN moniker that falls on top of the Red Wings' logo. STATE OF HOCKEY, also trademarked. But even in the American footprint across ... Read More

Good morning, Vancouver

Good morning, Vancouver, and good morning, Insiders. Hey, we're back in Canada! It has been over two months since our travels last brought us north of the border. This is a familiar trip. It's the fourth consecutive year we've spent the late December punctuation to the holiday season in Western C... Read More

Good morning, San Jose

Good morning, Insiders, and good morning, Silicon Valley. I had been dreaming of a Munters Christmas, but sadly, that dream was not realized. Munters sightings across our great league are becoming as rare as herds of Nubian ibex nobly galloping across the central Eritrean highlands. And, make no ... Read More

Good morning, Philadelphia

Good morning, Philadelphia, and good morning, Insiders. It's too bad that the Tri-State leg of this road trip ended in Brooklyn, because unlike Madison Square Garden or Prudential Center, there's no convenient means to take the train down to Philadelphia. Barclays Center sits atop the Long Island... Read More

Good morning, New York

Good morning, Manhattan, and good morning, Insiders. I love New York, but I'm not always in love with New York. There are a few parts of the greater Tri-State Area that, if the sun hits the pavement right, do feel like home. My dad is from White Plains, and Westchester County and Fairfield County... Read More

Good morning, Newark

Good morning, New Jersey, and good morning, Insiders. If only someone could have written a song about being "on the road again." This is the third of four East Coast trips for a group that is yet to visit Western Canada, Dallas, Denver, Nashville or Minnesota. It begins with an overnight stay... Read More

Good morning, Chicago

Good morning, Insiders, and good morning, Chicago. Not a bad schedule, this. Hastened by a 7:00 p.m. local time start, we were out the doors (err, loading dock) of the Scottrade Center at 10:20 yesterday and up in the air just before 11:00 p.m. We touched down at Midway before 11:45, and after le...

Good morning, St. Louis

Good morning, Insiders, and good morning... St. Louis? We're apparently back in St. Louis, one month and one day after having last visited the Big River. This was a shock to me, because in my sleepwalking daze last night, I stumbled towards a hotel room that checked off none of the Bright Lights/... Read More

Good morning, Washington

Good morning, Insiders, and good morning, District of Columbia. The one visit per year to our nation's capital is among the favored road stops. It is one of the Please Don't Let Us Visit On The Second Night Of A Back To Back cities out east, like Toronto, Montreal and Boston. (New York doesn't qu... Read More

Good morning, Detroit

Good morning, Detroit, and good morning, Insiders. Good morning, Little Caesars Arena. I'm not sure what to make of all this. It's obviously exciting to see such a beautiful, state of the art rink in downtown Detroit, but Joe Louis Arena's retro charm, lack of amenities and deafening acoustics we... Read More
