Hockey on Google+ ?

By now I’m sure most of you are at least aware of Google’s social network in Google+.  It has not taken over Facebook by storm, but has actually done quite well with certain niches.  Tech-types love it (my Tech circle son their are insane with activity), and so do photographers and artists, and so on.

The one niche I have never been able to find on G+ though is sports, specifically hockey.

Are there any hockey reporters, bloggers, writers, etc, on Google+ to follow?  I have yet to find any.  And quite frankly, I would prefer G+ to Twitter even because Twitter’s mobile clients have gotten just awful and clunky (while G+‘s Android client has gotten fast and slick in the last few updates).  And as for Facebook… the less said about it (and its awful mobile clients), the better.

If you know of any writers, bloggers, hockey media types, etc, to follow on G+, could you please post them?  I’d like to get a Hockey Circle going, and I’m sure some others would like to get a Hockey Circle going as well.  G+ seems like the perfect place for this sort of thing…

Thanks.

Google+ looks interesting, but it’s just too much effort to keep up with yet another social network, especially when the volume of activity in there is so low.

I’ve shared a Circle of hockey bloggers & MSM types here:

It’s hardly comprehensive, but it’s a good start. And my profile is here, while you’re at it!

Thanks Dirk.  That’s a good Circle you’ve shared there, I recognize quite a few.  That makes for a decent Hockey circle feed.

It’s chicken-or-the-egg with Google+, nobody is there because nobody else is there… but someone has to get it going on there and not many seem willing to, even though IMO as a network it kicks the crap out of Facebook and Twitter.  I like Twitter but God, what a mess their mobile client situation has become.  And honestly, Tweeting is just too brief and doesn’t tell the whole story.

KingsCast.  Gotcha’... added even though I’m a fan of a team on the other coast.

Anyone else?  Or does anyone know of any ways we can put some pressure on media types to get on it?
