Afternoon Scrum 11/6/09

  • Nationwide Arena/CBJ lease issue: I will delve into this matter at greater depth somewhere down the road when more ideas on how to resolve the problem are being discussed. For now, check out the articles from the Dispatch here and here. The issue is gloomy, I'll admit, but I don't believe for a second that the county or city will allow the revenue this team generates to up and disappear. The Arena is the cornerstone of the entire area and the team is the centerpiece of that foundation.
  • What's that? Not enough depressing news concerning your favorite team and sport? How 'bout this little nugget about contracting the league? Ryan Kennedy over at The Hockey News says it makes sense. He may be right.
  • Guess who is sitting in 1st place in the Central as of this morning? Yup... YOUR Columbus Blue Jackets. Check out the standings for yourself if you don't believe me! It's fun just to look at.
  • How about some juicy gossip to kill some time? The Hockey news has some trade speculations. Former Jacket Ray Whitney's name is bandied about.
  • Finally, if you are looking for a place to watch both the Buckeyes and the Jackets on Saturday you're gonna want to check this out. $2 beers from kickoff until Hitch's press conference. When you want to watch football and hockey, what better venue than a baseball park, eh? Belly up to the Hall of Fame Bar at Huntington Park.
