I asked people for questions that weren't the usual ones. Yesterday, I got a lot of them. So many that we had a second mailbag today! This works out very well, actually; we're going to be turning the Mailbag into a Tuesday thing from this point forward, so consider this a passing of the torch.

I'm eating a chocolate chip granola bar right now. It is very tasty. I'm also having a bottle of water. It is very watery. Neither of these statements are relevant to anything, but I couldn't think up a better intro. With that said, here are a few of your questions (we had a lot of them this week).

I know he's trying to sell himself as the "bad boy" of TLN, but stealing what is the heart of what keeps my content veins full of blood is a low blow. So you know what? Let's fight fire with fire.

Many thought this series was over after what we saw last weekend. The Toronto Marlies, a team that has spent months playing with their backs against the wall, rallied from adversity not once, but twice, to take a 2-0 lead in their best of five opening round series against the Grand Rapids Griffins. The past few days haven't been helpful to their cause, though; the Griffins rebounded and tied the series with two wins of tonight. Tonight's game offered two paths; another 4+ games of hockey, or a dead end.

Unfortunately, the Griffins proved to be too much for them, winning Game 5 by a score of 3-1.
