Let’s Get Rolling

Some who can’t do, teach. Others of us write.

I’ve never played hockey, unless you count pickup games of roller hockey with the other neighborhood kids, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t understand and passionately love the game. Lately I’ve decided to spare my non-hockey-fan friends, and send my thoughts into the world, rather than subjecting them to my incessant talking.

Some things you can expect include hockey news, impressive plays, lots of crying over the Edmonton Oilers, fights, hockey bromances, potentially excessive amounts of Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins, players being ridiculous, and anything else I decide needs saying.

Some things that you won’t see: irrelevant bashing of players, coaches, and teams; and  anything about players’ personal lives that doesn’t publicly and officially come from the players themselves. I have two policies – don’t be a douche, and don’t be a creep. The first won’t keep me from posting negative opinions, but I can promise that if I do, they will be relevant. The second? Come on, people. These guys are in the spotlight and being examined almost 24/7. I’m not going to go digging and add to that.

We’re in the fourth week of the season, just over 25% through, and I know you’re as excited as I am, so let’s get rolling.
