For the majority of my life all I knew about hockey was that 1) the Maple Leafs were awful and you should hate them 2) Saku Koivu was the captain of the Habs and he was from some Scandinavian country 3) Canada was supposed to win in every international tournament.
Thanks to the 08 playoffs which saw the Habs beat the Bruins in dramatic fashion and lose to the Flyers in a rather traumatic fashion, I became completely obsessed with hockey. I now follow multiple teams in the NHL, AHL (Hammies aka the Bulldogs for the win!), ECHL, QMJHL, OHL and I did make an effort to follow the WHL but their crappy timezone difference made that very difficult….
This blog is about my hockey teams, although I have been known to ramble about tennis, soccer and baseball at times. (Gotta do something in the off-season, yeah?)
Got questions? Tickets to give to me? Offer me the job of Supreme Ruler of the Hockey World? If yes, you can email me at shiftsandsets [at] gmail [dot] com. If not, you can still email me :D
