<table width=90% align=center><tr><td><img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/09/kesler_blog.jpg border=0 align=left vspace=2 hspace=6>We had a day off yesterday, which was nice since we’ve going pretty hard since the season started. It’s kind of weird to have three days between games but it’s good because the next week will be pretty intense. Typically on off days I sleep until 9… maybe 10 but I actually slept in until about 11:00, which is unlike me but you know what, sometimes you just need it.

It was a pretty low key day, I played some video games. I got Halo 3, which was released just recently but hadn’t really had much of a chance to test it out so I got to pull out the 360 and play some of that. I was playing four on four with some random people online. It’s still pretty new so I’d say that I’m average but I can hold my own.

<img src=http://cdn.nhl.com/canucks/images/upload/2007/10/Nationwide_Arena_tt.jpg border=0 align=right vspace=1 hspace=4>Lately, my favourite restaurant has been a new place that just opened up downtown called Italian Kitchen but for dinner, my wife and I went to Gotham Steakhouse. It was the first time in three years that we’ve been there and I forgot how good the steak there was. I should probably think about going more often.

While Halo was great, the highlight of my day was actually the Kanye concert. I went with my wife and Taylor Pyatt and his wife. I sat probably as far away as you possibly can for Ludacris and then I finagled my way to the front for Kanye. Wait - okay finagled might not be the best word - my buddy had tickets up there so we went to join him. It was the first time I ever sat front row at a concert so it was pretty neat. I like Ludacris more so it was kind of disappointing that we were so far away for him but but Kanye was really good so I have no complaints.

I actually had a pretty busy and I would say productive day off because usually I just lay around the house all day so this was definitely good for me. If I have family in town, I’d bring them to the Suspension Bride or something like that. I went last year but I wouldn’t go there that much, it’s one of those places that you go to show people who are visiting from out of town.

Speaking of family, I get to see them next week when we play Columbus because it’s about a 30 mile drive from Detroit. I’m excited about the road trip – the first real long one since the season started – but it’s going to be an expensive one because of all the tickets I’ll have to buy. I think there’s gong to probably close to 30 people from my family at that game and we’re playing Detroit too so it’ll likely be a repeat of that when we go there.

She’s my wife’s brother’s daughter and it’s always so much fun to see her. She’s almost three years old and she loves hockey too, which is great. Maybe she’ll get into it too but I’ll leave that up to her parents to make that decision.

Every time I go back, I bring her a gift so if I don’t have something she’ll ask where her present was. It’s really cute. She’s got our old jersey but not the new on yet so I got her one of those. There’s no number on it yet but I think my mom’s going to do it when we get there. It’ll be fun for sure.

hey kes,

thx for the post.

I finally got to see my first live game on opening night, too bad ya'll lost, but it was an amazing experience. me and my buddy drove up from trail (8hrs) to watch ya'll. i've been a fan since well...i was five, that pretty much puts me at the 81' finals. i'm hearin' your on the fourth line tomorrow, which i don't really agree with, how can you get into a role on a line when the lines keep changing so much? i'm sure av has a plan but i'd like to see you with nazzy and mo for at least a month and see what happens. anyways, i hope to come see you guys again soon, if there's tickets available that is, not being a season ticket holder sucks bad but i won't get into that.

take care, stay healthy and have a great season!

Thanks so much for posting, Ryan!

I've loved you're season so far, we were a bit lacking the speed department last year,

but that seems to have been remedied thus far. Largely in part to you. I totally thought that you, mo and Naslund looked amazing this year. I'm sure you'll be on the same line again soon!

Anyway, thanks again, these are incredibly fun to read. Good luck in Los Angeles!

Hey, Great job so far this season. Hope the Kanye/Luda concert was a blast, I wanted to go so badly. :(

Just wondering, but.. would you ever give out your XBOX Live account name?

So we can all play you online? ;)
