Anyone still out there, apart perhaps from Koufax and InstaFace? Just making sure I'm not turning anyone off...it's awful quiet in here. I sat up with a start in my hotel bed as I was trying to get to sleep last night, wondering if I'd made a huge mistake in not fighting to keep the BBC assignment I'd been given. If I were doing Nottingham-Zurich tonight and did a bang-up job, and got the attention of a producer within the BBC who might be impressed with my work...I started getting visions of this being my route into the BBC's Olympics coverage, etc. But I should really simmer down. If nothing else, what I did yesterday - suggesting to Producer Markus it wasn't a good idea for us to swap assignments - was the right thing to do, both in general and for my short-term mental health. The time I would have spent researching Nottingham's lineup went instead to researching Avangard Omsk's lineup, ahead of my first KHL commentary of them on Friday; I didn't know when else I would get around to that, given my flights back to Scotland tomorrow and my drive down to Leeds on Thursday morning for SKA St. Petersburg vs. Spartak Moscow.
