Is a chat with a New York Daily News sportswriter (hockey, no less) really live, developing or even a story?  With Hernia legend Michael Obernauer of all people?  And worthy of a fiery red exclamation point?  Great, no earthquakes or tsunamis today, but there’s a hockey chat coming up. 

Even the past five presidents took a backseat to what we can only imagine was a spirited, emoticon-laden chatfest for the ages.

Expect to see the following ‘breaking’ news alerts for all the other Daily News sports scribes some time later this week:

    Hey, Obernauer is a rock star!

    He even beat Elvis coming back from the dead and slamming Travolta critics…oh, wait, that was Lisa Marie; but I am still impressed.
