Kukla's Korner Hockey

One would think that, at age 77, Scotty might retire from public life and just smack the little white golf ball around. After all, a number of former hockey executives can be found in and around Bowman’s winter residence of Sarasota, Fla. Most of them are at least slightly detached, which is to say they probably can’t tell you how the third line for the Phoenix Coyotes has been performing lately. And then there’s Scotty.
“Look at this….while we’re talking on the phone, I’m getting all these tweets,” Bowman was saying the other day. “Here’s one from Chicago. Tomas Kopecky, injured for Saturday night’s game there, will be back in the lineup Wednesday night against Los Angeles. I don’t send these tweets or twitters. Is that what they’re called? But I get them, and read them. Then I get stuff on my computer from the United Center every morning. Any story from any NHL city. It could take you two hours to digest it. I know, because I do it.
“At night, if I don’t go see the Tampa Bay Lightning play at home, I can watch any game on TV. Or I can do both. I can go to a game and watch one on tape later. Here we go! Here’s another one of those instant messages from Toronto! Another tweet. All the information you can get now. It’s amazing.”
What also amazes is William Scott Bowman’s voracious appetite to absorb it all.
I don’t know why, but I get a chuckle just thinking about Scotty tweeting.
