In Red Wings Land
Red Wings announce 2nd annual Hockeytown 5K set for Sunday, Sept. 10 - RedWings.com
If you're the kind of person who feels like a good way to pass your time is running three miles without being chased by a swarm of angry bees with oddly specific territorial boundaries, then boy howdy do I have the story for you!
Registration starts at $50 through Aug. 1 ($55 from Aug. 2 - Sept. 10) with participants receiving a Hockeytown 5K T-shirt, a runner's bib and a one-of-a-kind finisher's medal. VIP Packages are also available featuring a T-shirt, runner's bib and finisher's medal, along with a special Hockeytown 5K gift and a ticket to a Red Wings preseason game ($90) or a ticket to both a Red Wings and Pistons preseason game ($99).
Around the League
The NHL should get rid of home and away jerseys like the NBA did - SBNation.com
I know people have hated the concept of borrowing things from the NBA ever since that's where we got our commissioner (and three lockouts) from, but this is an idea that I am *EXTREMELY* on board for. I don't even care about a four-jersey selection; it could be three for all I give a shit. Just give me red vs. blue when the Wings and Leafs play like it should be!
