Note II: Normally we’d be letting you know to join us at 9 AM for the Illegal Curve Hockey Show but we aren’t live today as it is Rosh Hashanah. However, we pre-recorded the episode which will go “live” on our YouTube channel at 9 AM but will not actually be a live broadcast. The bad news is you won’t be able to chat as you normally could but the good news is you’ll be able to download the episode immediately.
