For the FNG’s…An Introduction To The Wing Blogosphere

I’m guessing, based on past playoff adventures, that we’ll be seeing some new visitors to A2Y.  Flame fans, we welcome you as we welcomed your provincial pals last year.  I offer none of the “trolls stay away” admonitions.  If you’re a troll, I could care less.  Trolls don’t scare me anymore.  I used to be frightened because they hid under my bed and ate oreo’s, keeping me awake until my 23rd birthday.  But they’re gone and that makes me happy.

I would, however, like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the rest of the Wing bloggers, most (if not all) are much more accurate than yours truly.  They all bring something different to the table, so I recommend you visit each of these sites:

On The Wings.  Matt Saler and his band of serious Wing fans offer hard and sound analysis of every game, every move the Wings make.  Matt and I frequently disagree, but usually only because he doesn’t understand my child-like wit.

Behind The Jersey.  There is probably no more passionate Wing fan on the net than Christy Hammond.  Yzerman expert and UM student, bionic knees and a great writer.

Gloveside.  Hilarious and topical.  Flame fans, don’t venture there unless you can handle a jab or ten.

Snapshots.  George Malik’s blog over at MLive.  George is the prime resource for all articles Wing-related.

Gorilla Crouch.  Dave is a combination of Gloveside and OTW.  Serious at times, but definitely capable of sarcasm, a trait we admire greatly here at A2Y.

No Pun Intended is a blog I visited for the first time this morning. Sexual innuendo and hockey do mix, thankfully.

I may have missed a few. If so, I take full responsibility and expect to be reminded of it publicly…as usual.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
