Hi there! My name is Dolly Dolce, and I’m your new staff writer for Octopus Thrower. As you can see by my picture, I’m also a Bolts fan. (Please don’t hate me.) Hey, I live in Tampa, so please be gentle. I like to refer to it as Hockey Paradise. I’ve been involved with sports all through my life growing up, football and basketball mostly. Then when I was 14 The Lightning came to Tampa and a new obsession was born within me. I love to write, so I just combined my two passions!I am also the editor for Bolts By The Bay.
Though I have never had the privilege of seeing Joe Louis Arena in person or even seeing an actual frozen pond outside, (the thought just amazes me, to see frozen water that is not in my ice tray in my freezer), that doesn’t make me any less of a hockey fan. I love the sport. I love the RedWings as well, and no, it’s not just because Steve Yzerman is the Lightning’s GM. Since I started following hockey in 1992 I’ve had 3 team loves. (Which are rivals, but I’m strange anyway.) Detroit, Tampa, and Chicago. When the Lightning acquired Mr. Yzerman as their general manager, I was ecstatic! I can’t wait for the upcoming season when Detroit comes here to Tampa. I’ll be like a kid in a candy shop.
I’ll do my best to keep you updated on the latest news to come across, and I can be quite opinionated, too.
We’re working on a current Facebook page and Twitter account, until then, feel free to follow my personal Twitter @HulaDolly. I must warn you, my tweets are sarcastic and very anti-Boston
We are also looking for more writers! If you are interested, please email [email protected] for more information.
