In the wake of a great season (albeit disappointing) I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself.
My name is Brian and I have been a Red Wings fan for 18 years and I remember the playoff letdowns of the early 90′s. I have something Red Wings related in every room of my house, I wear a Red Wings jersey to work every Friday during hockey season, and I was there when Steve Yzerman’s number was raised to the rafters. Shame on all you “fans” that went to the BCS Championship that year!
Unlike some bloggers, I do not write because I want to get a job in journalism or broadcasting. I write because I am a fan and I want to share my passion and viewpoint with you. I have been following Octopus Thrower for quite some time now and when I saw that the lead blogger position was available I thought it would be a great opportunity to share my fandom. Just because the Red Wings season is over doesn’t mean I will stop posting quality content. The Red Wings and the NHL make news every day so keep checking back for updates.
I would like to hear more from you. Did you like a post? Do you think I’m wrong? Let me know! Leave a comment, send me a tweet, or send me an email.
