Some days, I get a little jealous. I look around at the blogosphere, and there are some really fun team blogs out there. There are the “Battle Of” blogs (California, Ontario, Alberta), and there are regular blogs written by several people (Hockey Rants, for instance). It just looks like so much fun. I can picture the bloggers now, driving around in their 70s red hotrod with racing stripes, calling each other cute nicknames like”Starsky” or “Hutch,” eating ice cream sandwiches and solving crimes. Ah, to be part of a team.
I guess the ultimate team blog is the HLOG (Hockey Ladies of Greatness). According to their sidebar, they currently have 20 members blogging away. And they still have room for more. They throw out topics and discuss, bounce around ideas, and still have content for their regular blogs. Crazy. And it’s good blogging. Now I’m really jealous.
Having someone to bounce ideas off of must be the shit. In the off season, I had a great time bouncing ideas off of Zanstorm and Hodge of Waiting for Stanley. When there wasn’t much going on in a given day, they could inspire me to do something fun (like bobbleheads). Earl Sleek was another one to help keep me going in what seemed like the longest off season ever. But now, we have all run off to our little corners of the web, to cheer on out teams, and occasionally run into each other in an intersection.
I had the idea months ago to create a drunken hockey blog. Call it something like Drunken Hockey Blog. It would be a team blog, where you could post whatever you wanted, but you had to be drunk to do it. Raging debates about what the best hockey beer and hockey liquor would rage (Ha! Rage twice!). Smack talk would degenerate into “you suck!” Best of all, you watch your team, drink throughout the game, and then post. I, of course, would post pictures of jerseys I have spilled alcohol on, and describe each beer stain. You have to give your qualifications for posting (how many drinks, and of what kind), and you have to post about hockey, but other than that, go for it. Most importantly, you would have drunken bloggers to bounce your drunken hockey thoughts off of. There are plenty of candidates for such a thing, such as this guy, her (scroll down to see what I mean), them, these guys, this woman, this one, and diffidently him. It might even get this guy away from his video games. Think of it as an entertaining public service. It could help prevent something like this.
Now all I have to do is develop a USB Breathalyzer. You are too sober to post to this blog.
Sharks play the Avs on Versus soon. I’m off to the pub. I’m too sober for this game.
Please, blog responsibly.
