My brief Christmas wishes:
Let the CBJ find some goals, healthy players and maybe a new center under their tree.
May the NHL Toronto War Room find some new prescription glasses in their stockings.
May Hitchcock find lots of competitive composure and heavy games in his pile of presents.
Finally, here is hoping that all of you enjoy the merriest Christmas ever!!! Let me know what you would like to see here as we move in to the New Year. Thanks for reading!
A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
