Since this is a new blog, I'm stuck writing for a what's probably a very very small audience. Probably just a couple people from over at BHZ... if any. So what's a good way to get noticed? How about calling out a bigger (read:better) blog? Lets see how it works...
I am appalled that Barry Melrose Rocks has done absolutely NOTHING to wish our favorite former ESPN announcer a happy birthday. Maybe now that he's off coaching whoever Pittsburgh failed to re-sign they don't care about him as much, but don't get down Barry, some of us still love you. BMR - the real Barry Melrose is awaiting your apology.
Happy Birthday Barry
In slightly related news - there seems to be rumors that Barry might be coaching our own Brent Seabrook this season. Or that Seabrook might end up in Ottawa. I hope he goes no where and instead maybe give up Barker - which also seems like a big possibility.
Also - the Convention Schedule has been released - I'll be doing my best to not miss any parts of the convention but the highlights for me will definitely be the mini-1961 team reunion (Hull, Mikita, McDonald and Pilote), the Q&A with Hockey Operations and the panel of Hull, Mikita, Kane and Toews.
