Kukla's Korner

Welcome, One and All

Just a quick hit here from me today on a totally off-the-ice front (or two):

A big time welcome and congratulations to the many newcomers to KK that have landed here in recent weeks, launching their new (or relocated) blogs and a very special shoutout to my man Brian Metzer, who has some very big, yellow and black shoes to fill for the departing Tony of The Confluence fame. Have no fear, Pens fans: Mr. Metzer is first-rate all the way and his cleverly titled From the Point Too is sure to please. I am beyond stoked to work with Brian here under the Kukla umbrella on a permanent basis, after our successful and popular collaboration during last year’s Lightning/Penguins series and of course, our time as colleagues elsewhere from years past. (Seems like eons ago now, don’t it, Metz?)

Who knows? Maybe that “one time only” Bolts and Birds podcast might have to make a second time only appearance now… (And a third? A fourth???)

With Metz and the rest of the new blood coming aboard, it’s impressive to see the site being fleshed out so thoroughly with big-time talent focusing on so many teams.

It also makes me realize I need to start stepping it up again…

I haven’t been able to write as regularly as I’d like this summer but there are signs of calmer waters ahead. To be perfectly honest, I spend my summers caring for my two young sons, for the most part and that takes up a huge chunk of my time and energy (about which, I should clarify, I have absolutely NO complaints. Dad and sons are having a fantastic off-season!) The lapse is not totally unexpected and it is planned for somewhat but still, as the days go by, the self-imposed abyss seems to deepen. Again, all that shall pass soon enough…

I am also spending a significant amount of time on some housekeeping and administrative issues for the future of Beasts of the Southeast and while change will be coming in year two of its existence here at KK, I’m quite sure that it will be of the overwhelmingly positive variety.

Once again, an open-armed welcome and congrats to the new arrivals… First, Kukla’s Korner… Next step: The world!
