It's been a long and trying year as a Blue Jackets fan. From another disappointing finish to big time signings and trades... From the Arena deal to the current 9-21-4 record that plagues the fan base.. From un-fireable coaches to fresh blood in Patrick..
I always find the Christmas season is a great time to reflect on the year and appreciate some of the little things. For me, looking at Carry the Flag, I am humbled and honoured each and every day I click on the blog stats and see the number of readers that take the time to read the posts the Coach and I publish. Comments are like finding money in an old jacket.. Never expected, and ALWAYS appreciated! I write for therapy when 140 characters is not enough, and I hope that some of the content I share provokes some interesting debates on where this team is headed in the future, and how they intend to get there.
So please, have a safe and Merry Christmas, and try not to get into too much trouble this New Years Eve! We hope your holidays are filled with excitement, joy, and mounds of Blue Jackets swag!!
Carry the Flag!
