1I went to a couple of Rangers games at the Garden, and someone at the NHL had seen me and figured I was a fan and decided to approach me about having a blog during the playoffs.
2I love flexing theater muscles. Television has merits as well, but there's no substitute for live theater.
3The 13-episode model lends itself to a more serialised format, which is nice and gives writers a chance to breathe some space into it.
4I think we can all learn things if we really want to. It's fascinating how that can get expedited when you have a support system around you.
5It was so popular, so more people identify me from 'Friends' than anything else.
6Everybody wants to get along with everyone else in the sandbox. I'm that kind of kid, you know what I mean? That will never change about me.
