I just wanted to stop for a second and thank Mike Heika for being our Dallas Stars beat writer. I think he’s the best there is.
He has his regular columns in the Sports/NHL section of the Dallas Morning News. And he has a Newsletter where he answers questions sent by readers. And best of all, he has the Blog. Heika’s Blog, we like to call it.
I check Heika’s blog every day, several times a day. I have the feed on my My Yahoo page. It’s all I can do to keep from just posting a link to his blog every day because I read something there I want to pass along, just about every day.
He walked by me at practice one day and without thinking, I blurted out, “I love your work!” And he didn’t recoil in horror at all. He smiled and said, “Thank you very much.”
He knows what he’s talking about, he asks the players, coaches, and management all the right questions, and he responds to his readers. He seems like a stand-up guy.
It’s like having a friend who knows the Stars.
