I guess it's just the Canadian way. It's been a very busy couple of months...but having said that it's always busy when you've got a couple of boys under the age of 10 to spend time with. It was a tough couple of months for our family with the rather sudden loss of my Father in Law, which took priority obviously over everything else and left little time/motivation/emotion etc etc to write blogs.
I've certainly THOUGHT about the blog a lot, but thinking and doing are two different things. Give me a break, it's the off season! Well, I can't really use that excuse anymore now can I, with Training Camp opening Monday and preseason hockey getting going on Thursday night. So, here I am working on getting my hockey brain back engaged into the swing of things. Enough chitter-chatter, lets get going.
Below, in reverse chronological order is all the news that's been released by the Bulldogs since April, and the hiring of Joe Martin. From recruitment announcements, ownership changes, lease extensions, additions to the coaching staff and even a release of the third jersey. It's all there, all courtesy of the Bulldogs.
In the days coming, I'll certainly be popping my head into the rink to check on the proceedings. When it comes to exhibition games, and whether there will be a broadcast...well, I'm not sure yet. It's a possible plan and I'll update you when I know more. If there IS one, it will be a pay-per-view Hockey TV broadcast, and a 100% volunteer effort. The question comes up every year - no, the radio station does not broadcast the pre season games. I'll certainly at the very least be attending them, and posting and tweeting updates so be sure to check back frequently.
Finally - fear not, throughout the entirety of the 58 game Regular Season I'll be here there and everywhere broadcasting every second of every single game on 93.3 The Peak FM and on Hockey TV. Along with the on-air work, I'll post game day previews and post game recaps on the blog to keep you up to date.
For now I'm cramming as much time and fun in that I can out adventuring with my family while soaking up the last vestiges of freedom. Very soon, every weekend from September to March (and hopefully much further) will be filled with hockey and I'll be 100% committed to giving you my best every night!
Thanks as always for checking out the blog!
