Hockey, Hockey, Hockey

Connect Community Radio-Playoff Extravaganza continues

Su Ring from Daily Su, Joanne Giuliano from 10 Minute Miss Conduct, and I will be hosting this week's edition of Connect Community Radio. The show's regular host, Juice in LA (from One Minute of Play) isn't able to do the whole show tonight, so Su and I volunteered to sit in for her. This is a first time for me, so we'll see how this goes. It's two hours of fun and hockey, starting at 8:30 pm Eastern. It's an all-NHL sort of show, so feel free to stop, bring your friends, and say hi.

Hockey Blog Roll (AKA, Where You Can Also Find Me)

In going thru my blog roll, I had to make some ruthless decisions. Some of the people that I follow just haven't been updating their blogs all that often. So, in the interest of saving time and space, I've had to let a few of them go. Including friend's blogs, sadly. But if you haven't posted anything in the four months, then I've cut you loose - so sorry; nothing personal intended there.

Which is why I wouldn't be upset if people stopped following me. I know that I haven't been writing here much - a lot of that is because I've been writing a lot elsewhere. So, in the interest of helping people out, here's where I've been posting some hockey stuff now and then. I also hope to add more here upon occasion; hopefully more so than I have recently, too.

Raw Charge - my Tampa Lightning blog with John Fontana and Dani Toth. We hope to add another person or two in the next few months. We'll see how that goes. And we'll be covering World Championships when they get going, too.

From the Rink (on Thursdays) - Everyone's all over playoffs right now, so I hope to add some non-playoff content while that's going on. If you have any ideas or

Cycle Like the Sedins (upon their request) - Although, creator James O'Brien has been busy with other projects, I'm more than happy to help out when asked.

Connect Community Radio (also known as Puck Bunny Radio) - Some of my friends are starting this back up again. This Sunday I'll be co-hosting with Su Ring and Joanne Giuliano. Playoffs will be discussed, of course, but so will other hockey-related things like the draft, coaching changes, and more. I think we'll be starting at 8:30 pm Eastern, but I'm not sure as of yet. When I find out, I'll be posting it up everywhere. Feel free to call in - it's a good time.

So I'm still around, you've just got to know where to find me.

Puck Bunny Radio Reunion

I've been keeping a low profile lately - partly because of my traditional end of hockey season burnout, but also because I've been posting every Thursday at From the Rink on general NHL stuff. I'm slowly edging my way back into writing more.

Last night, we saw a resurrection of an online radio show by some friends of mine. Don't be confused by the name - Puck Bunny Radio - because it's about hockey, not about hockey players. Okay, sometimes it's about hockey players, but not too much. It's a co-ed kind of show, and it's a lot of fun.

I came in half an hour late - I'd forgotten that it was on and was reading a book. I ended up co-hosting, in the end. (If I'm cutting in and out, it's because I don't get the best cell phone reception at my apartment; next time, I might have to Skype it.) Next Sunday, Su and I will be co-hosting this gig. We'll see how that goes.

Last night's edition was a bit scattered, but hockey was discussed, so it was good. It's really more a group of friends talking hockey than an actual radio show, tho. So listen at your own peril!

When's That Next Tee Time?

Edmonton Oilers Draft Lottery Simulator

While this is funny, it's also very sad. I can't even believed that they put this up on their team site! You know a team sucks when....

A Pioneer In Women's Hockey

Rheaume relishes being a role model

I was playing hockey around the time that she was playing preseason games for the Tampa Bay Lightning. While I've never looked up to her as a role model, I've always thought that what she was doing was awesome and important. So good for her that she's good with the added weight of not only being a role model, but also a pioneer.
