Great White Bites
Randy\'s Thought of the Day - 12\/17\/2013

A day in the life on the road in St. Louis:


7:30am - CST Alarm goes off that Siri set for me on iPhone. Thanks Siri.

7:31 - Locate robe.

7:32 Turn on NHL Network. Check last nights highlights

7:35 - Make coffee. Any hotel that doesn’t have a coffee machine in the room cannot become one of my favorite hotels. Ever.

8:00 - Fire up laptop and log into NHL game notes site. Game day process begins.

8:17 - Check last night's leftover calzone from “Sauce On The Side.” Still edible. Salad is not.

9:15 - Catch team bus to Scottrade Center for morning practice

9:30 - Catch up with GM Doug Wilson, Dan Rusanowsky and Drew Remenda. Nashville stories exchanged. Also discuss the question: “What would you do if you won tonight’s lottery?”.

10ish - Watch Sharks hit the ice for morning skate.

10:05 - Chat with Blues coach Ken Hitchcock. Happy 62nd birthday, fellow Edmonton native!

10:15 - Enjoy lively discussion with Blues color commentator Darren Pang and assistant coach Brad Shaw. Another Ottawa boy, Jamie Baker, joins in the fun.

11:15 - Join the media scrum to talk to Sharks coach Todd McLellan about tonight's tilt.

11:30 - Back on the bus to hotel.

11:45 - Lunch with the aforementioned Mr. Rusanowsky. French onion soup and tuna melt.

12:30pm - Back in room and more pregame prep.

2 - Gym. Would prefer outdoor run but anything under about 40 degrees turns me into a treadmill runner. Hard to believe I use to be Edmontonian.

4:30 - Bus back to arena.

4:45 -  Come up with an idea for Great White Bites that was actually due this morning, write it and file it.

Still to come tonight - game vs Blues, bus to Lambert Field, charter to LAX, bus to hotel near Staples Center and check into room. It better have coffee.
