Canucks and Beyond
by Alanah McGinley on 12/18/06 at 07:50 AM ET
Welcome to this shiny new hockey blog. My previous address -- Vancouver Canucks Op Ed
-- is now firmly buried 6 feet under, so it's time for a fresh new project. You can read more about me here
if you like. It's not very informative, but I amused myself, anyway.
So... whateverinthehell will I talk about now?
Well, I'll start by thanking my host, Kukla's Korner
. Paul Kukla has done everything possible to get this site up and running, and really couldn't be a better friend in general. And a big thank you to Paul's web guru, Kathy
, who's also been incredibly helpful. A toast to you both!
Now onto some slightly more sinister news.
I'm afraid I share these accommodations with a very
troublesome next door neighbor. You know the type I mean -- the kind who pulls his car into the driveway next door and you just KNOW, simply by the way he spins his tires and laughs at his own jokes, that he's gonna drive you freakin' insane.
For me, that neighbor is Abel to Yzerman
, also a resident writer here's at Kukla's. We've been known to exchange obnoxious banter from time to time, so I imagine it will degenerate into a public spectacle eventually. But it's all in fun... I think.
Besides, he's a Red Wings fan. They're all a bit touched in the head. (Sorry, Paul.)
Finally, thank you to everyone joining me from VCOE and to new visitors checking in for the first time today. I hope you have some fun here once I get settled in. As long-time readers know, I'm not the terribly serious-type, so don't be expecting deep thoughts and complex analysis too frequently (or ever). You're more likely to find disconnected ranting, bad photoshop efforts and light humor about the NHL and the Canucks around here.
That approach has been working for me for three years... why stop now?!
Anyway, I've got some entertaining new ideas up my sleeve for sometime in the new year -- just gotta survive Christmas first.
