Yes I am back...for longer than a while anyway. I had some personal business that, frankly, still needs attending to, but is at least allowing me some time...for now. Not going to get into too many details here but it can be extremely annoying when life gets in the way of what you want and/or need to get done. At the same time, it is more than necessary to take a step back and catch your breath, which is part of what I had to do.
But I haven't been completely ignoring the blog, after all it is my personal forum for all things NHL. Here and there I've tried to pick up tips to make things more enjoyable for you, the reader. I want you to enjoy what you see and hear as much as I enjoy bringing it to you. Eventually, my goal is not so much to rival the bigger hockey blogs out there, but to offer something of a fun alternative. Something that shows that, given some time and enough passion, that anybody can be a part of if they want.
Mrs. Blueliner has, as always, been a great help as my sounding board and pseudo-editor-in-chief. She's also been a steadying hand during what has been something of a difficult transition time for us. It also helps that she's a big fan of the Caps, making her feedback and support all the more valuable. If you've noticed that I make mention of her in at least every other post, then you know how much she means to me. If all this makes you want deposit your already-digested dinner into a trash can, I understand. But I won't apologize. My wife is every bit the reason why this exists, so get used to it.
Anyway, that's enough explaining about missed time. This very minute, I'm taking in the post-game recap of Game Five. For those of you reading this, if you were every bit as frustrated by the result as I am, just you wait. If you thought the Angry Montreal caller http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/HreT/~3/91XYy2spgyw/youtube-angry-caller-to-post-game-radio.html was steamed, then read on...my next post.
