Picture Of The Day: A Night Of Unwelcome Returns

A Night Of Unwelcomed Returns

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010 has been marked down on the calenders of almost every NHL and NBA fan.  After all, it is the day that many have already been calling, “A Night of Unwelcome Returns.”  And headlining this much-anticipated night of North American professional sports action are the Miami Heat’s LeBron James and the San Jose Sharks’ Dany Heatley.

We begin with James, who will be making his highly anticipated return to Cleveland for the first time since announcing over the summer that he would be taking his talents to South Beach, leaving the city he grew up in and played for during his first seven NBA seasons behind.

And then there is Dany Heatley, who had to wait an extra year before returning to Ottawa, but will finally make his first trip back to the Canadian capitol since demanding a trade during the summer of 2009.

So while most birds tend to fly south for the winter, we are quite certain that the boo-birds in both Cleveland and Ottawa have decided to stick around for a few more frigid December evenings, and they should be out in full force tonight.  Things could get interesting…
