This is kind of an odd day for me today.
First, I have to work on one of those once in a while Saturday schedules that pop up every so often.
Second, after work my family and I will be heading to Ground Zero to mark this day of remembrance. We have a number of friends that lost family members on this day. I haven't been down there in a while and today is the perfect day to pay our respects.
So, I will throw some links up now. Joey may have some things later. I may put a post up later on this evening and we will of course have a game thread but I will be pretty much MIA today and won't get to see any of the early games today.
So, here it is...
