A belated introduction

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.
