Twitter is all about 140 characters. I don't do Twitter. I will never tweet. This year, in 140 words, my role will be to attack hockey topics that are actually interesting.
Twitter is all about 140 characters. I don't do Twitter. I will never tweet.

Some of my colleagues may criticize me, but they don't watch the games anymore. They just read the tweets about them. The truth is, before you are allowed to tweet you should have to take a breathalyzer test. Boring tweets should be emailed to your grandma instead. Better yet, save her the time and write them in your journal.

This year, in 140 words, my role will be to attack hockey topics that are actually interesting. I'm not going to bore you by telling you where I am or what I'm eating. I won't mention how I'm feeling. Instead I'm going to write about the road to the Stanley Cup.

Enjoy the 140 words.  If you don't like them, tweet that to all your friends.  #dontwastemytime
