Funny posting from Daryl "Razor" Reaugh on his official Dallas Stars blog today -- something about the new iPhone. Only, he's not referring to the second-gen phone that's thick as a brick for most of the frustrated early birds. Nope, Razor's in Canada at this very moment, where folks are getting their fill of the first-gen iPhone -- "that same iPhone that is in its second generation in the U.S., and that Mrs. Razorboy had in her designer purse almost 2 years ago (Yes, I am husband of the decade)." He also lists five other items Canadians are looking forward to purchasing this summer, among them "Color (Or 'Colour' in the land of the maple leaf) Television." --Robert Wilonsky
