Although Minker let it slip a week or so ago on his blog, the Patriot News just confirmed that Robitaille signed to play next season in Italy. Of course, being the inquisitive mind I am, I’m now wondering if the girlfriend and new baby are going to Italy, or if the girlfriend is staying in central PA where I believe she’s from.
Time will tell, I suppose. Of course, now I can gloat for the rest of the day on the fact that I had guessed this was coming when the Bears signed Grant McNeill, as he’s a very… uh… pugilistic individual as well.
And for those of you who don’t actually follow any of the Caps blogs, if you’re going to try to see the baby Caps play the baby Flyers for the prospie scrimmage on Sept 18, word’s just come down that you’re going to have to log on to the Caps site on Sept 4 and RSVP for tickets. You can get up to 2, so act early and act fast….
