Instead of focusing on (or complaining about) the heat, why don't we talk about something hockey!

Mike Modano was released from the Stars this summer and it was a very sad thing. He was a Star for his entire career and even helped to bring the Stanley Cup to Dallas. He was debating retirement.....

And now he's signed with the Detroit Red Wings. A more evil scenario could not have been imagined. Memories of Emmitt Smith and the Arizona Cardinals come to mind (though I still love Emmitt). Though I'm trying to see things from Modano's perspective (who probably relishes the idea of playing for a team so close to his childhood home - and just being able to play in general), it still makes me sad.

I wanted to think of him only as a Star.
