An Update

Howdy friends! Sorry about disappearing there for oh, a hot month or so. It’s been a remarkably busy summer here. We put on the fantasy camp, I’m starting a new job (more on that later), I’m getting married (more on that much, much later), we “built” an office in our apartment after deciding not to [...]

Howdy friends!

Sorry about disappearing there for oh, a hot month or so. It’s been a remarkably busy summer here. We put on the fantasy camp, I’m starting a new job (more on that later), I’m getting married (more on that much, much later), we “built” an office in our apartment after deciding not to move (wait til you see a picture – we turned about 12 square feet in a badass set-up w/ a TV), and are planning a honeymoon. Also, we’ve been working and trying to get in shape.

Again, busy.

All of this settles down the second we get back from our honeymoon September 27th. Then the new job starts October 1st – the good news: I will be literally writing 400% more posts. (Up from 5 to 20 a week. If you count BB, up from 10 to 20 a week, soo….hockey!). I’ll reveal the details a little further when I’m allowed to.

  Howdy friends. Just a quick note for ya here: it’s been a battle to try to get back this blog and write something after resuming the work with the Hockey Greats Fantasy Camp and taking on new work with Easton. I truly apologize for the sporadic nature of posts, and at some point they may [...]

Howdy friends.

Just a quick note for ya here: it’s been a battle to try to get back this blog and write something after resuming the work with the Hockey Greats Fantasy Camp and taking on new work with Easton. I truly apologize for the sporadic nature of posts, and at some point they may get back to a measure of consistency, but I just can’t be sure when.

I’d be forcing it, and that’s not fun nor necessary for me.

Everytime I get the bug, I’ll be back! For now, I’ll probably just be linking to my daily posts.

This blog has taken me to somewhere I never thought I could go (steady employment!), so it’s not going to go anywhere except on the back burner. Think of Chris Jones’ “Son of Bold Venture” where he posts a few times a month. It’ll probably end up being more like that when it comes to real, legit posts. Especially during the off-season.

Are The Flyers Better? Should They Have Made Those Trades?

  Well hey, remember me? It’s been awhile folks, and for that, I apologize. Since we last talked (I think when Dubya was still in office), a few things have happened during the NHL’s off-season. I don’t remember exactly what, but I’m pretty sure the Florida Panthers hired some actual NHL players, the Philadelphia Flyers [...]

Well hey, remember me? It’s been awhile folks, and for that, I apologize.

Since we last talked (I think when Dubya was still in office), a few things have happened during the NHL’s off-season.

I don’t remember exactly what, but I’m pretty sure the Florida Panthers hired some actual NHL players, the Philadelphia Flyers had some grenades explode in the middle of their dressing room, and the Sabres found their long-misplaced wallet.

Crazy stuff.

Since there’s not a ton of news in the hockey world these days, let’s talk about those things, one at a time, of the course of this week. Started with the most compelling story….

These are not your grand-pappy’s Flyers

Since July 1st I’ve been spending my days learning more about a job of mine that’s recently changed. I know the posts have been infrequent, so thanks for your patience. I will keep everyone in the loop, of course, and it won’t hinder my ability to actually blog once I get the hang of it. Hope everyone (in the US) had a great long weekend!
