Well, this is one of those good news/bad news sort of mornings.
The good news is there'll be a new blog moving into town. By the end of the week, The Spin, Damien Cox's blog, makes its debut. From what Damien tells me, it'll be mainly hockey, including blogging from over in Turin, but also spin into the other areas that cross his sporting radar, like tennis and the CFL, so I'm sure it'll quickly show up on all the best blogrolls.
The bad news is that the Hockey Page is shutting down. Regular readers have noticed of late that the postings have become sporadic, while over at my JABS sports blog, I've done a little more hockey recently (and will continue to do so). Speaking from my own perspective, too, the HP has never really done what it was supposed to do, save for those few days last September blogging from Leafs preseason training, and for that I have to take the blame.
Oh, and couple more things: I'll be live-texting weekday Olympic hockey on the website, and thestar.com will be adding a podcasting element once the NHL resumes after the Olympics. Stay tuned for details on the websites, and JABS and the Spin.
To the bloggers and the readers who dropped by and maybe even took the time to comment, thanks so much. Damien will do a lot better job of keeping you regularly informed on all matters hockey, and if you want to wander over to JABS now and then, more's the better. Peace.
