Tonight is the first game of a very heavy month of games for the New Jersey Devils. It is also the first pro sports game in the state to have fans attend for the first time since 2020. The attendance is limited to 10% but I know they will give 110% from the seats. I hope the Devils give 110% on the ice.

The Song for the Evening: Backtrack was a standout Long Island hardcore band of the last decade. Their title track from their 2011 album, Darker Half, is one of my favorites from them.

The Promo Video for Fans Returning: You know what it is.
