Rainy Daze ... Thursday: Toronto Maple Leafs @ Florida Panthers ... Fun and Information from The Miami Herald

Rain Great day for a day off, eh?

Lots of rain, lots of wind.

That's all I got today. Haven't spoken to David J. Neal since this morning and don't know what happened at practice. But I am catching up on 30 Rock, so it's not all bad.

-- Big news out of your Miami Herald today:

First, it looks like there could be live horse racing at Hialeah again. Sure, it's quarter horse racing, but those horses don't know they are short. I just want me some Hialeah again.

Barry Jackson reports that Miami and Notre Dame are interested in renewing an old football rivalry. Talk about huge television ratings.

Also, Miami keeps its minor league soccer team. Good to hear. I like soccer enough and may even check out a game this year. All reports have been positive.

Tuesday's Games (and how they affected the Panthers): Florida doesn't look very good right now, and better wake up or a loss to Toronto on Thursday could very well be in the offing. And that's a five game losing streak. Need to stop this train now. Some good some bad from last night. Good: Carolina took the night off and so did Buffalo. Right now, Panthers still one point out. Bad: Rangers take Habs to overtime, then win; three point game there. Pitt beats down Atlanta ending its winning streak at six.

Wednesday's Game (and who the Panthers would be rooting for if they weren't so busy filling out their NCAA basketball brackets)

Devils @ Hurricanes, 7: Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur did something milestonish last night but I didn't hear what it was. Panthers just hope he can get another win tonight.
