SCFblog Links for 6-7-2011 and a Note to the Challenge Takers

Here are some links from people who accepted the Dead Blog Challenge.

It’s no surprise that the majority of the talk today was about the Rome hit on Horton from last night’s game.  Nic from Avaholics Anonymous and Vic from Vic’s Stereo Lounge all chime in on the hit.

J Scott Moore from Real Denver Sports talks about the intensity of the series.

Ryan Classic wants you to know that the fans of the Canucks aren’t bad people.

Scott Pantall is pulling for the Bruins, and wants you to know why. weighs in on the game.

Alix has an apology letter for being a Canucks fan. Sort of.

And Greg from the Post-Pessimest Association throws in some photos from Albania.  Just go with it. :)

If I missed anything, let me know in the comments.


A quick not to those of you taking the challenge:

If you are feeling this challenge is getting hard, don’t give up.  This is how you form a habit.  Keep at it, I know you can do it.  And if you find yourself compelled to write, well, you can be mad at me if you have to. :)



SCFblog Links for 6-6-2011

Here are some of the SCFblog links for June 6th, 2011.  I have a few things to do before the game tonight, so this is just a current snapshot of the day.


Scott Pantall says there is nothing like a game to get you back in game shape.

The brings up Keith Ballard. I know, I had to look up who that was too. :)

J Scott Moore talks about writing.  Timely, eh?

Vic thinks the Bruins are done.

Alix had some off-day thoughts that didn’t make it into the links.  Check them out here.

And welcome Ryan Classic to the challenge.  It’s never too late to start.  Here are 10 observations he’s had about the Finals.


If I missed anything, put it in the comments, will you?

And speaking of comments, the people who are doing the challenge need your support.  Go leave a comment on their blogs.  It takes only a moment to do, and they really appreciate it.  Comments make the blogging world a better place.

SCFblog Links for 6-5-2011

I’m trying to write today’s Challenge links from my iPad, so we are going to see if this works or not. But hey, that’s what this is all about, experimentation, eh?

Greg wasn’t available for last night’s game, because he was a little busy at a soccer game. You could do worse for your post hockey entertainment. He doubled up his posting today, and points out some sports writing you may not be familiar with, but should take the time to check out. shows some love for Lapierre, and doubles up with some Don Cherry video.

Alix talks about the hard work the Canucks showed last night in their overtime win, particularly from two players you may have heard mentioned a few times last night.

Scott Pantall joins the challenge. Hey, better late than never, and he makes up for his tardiness by doubling up, one post about getting back on the ice after a nasty injury sidelined him, and a (hopefully) tongue-in-cheek idea about checking in the NHL.

If I missed anything, hit me up in the comments, so I can add it to the links. Great job, people!

SCFblog Links for June 3rd, 2011

The Stanley Cup Finals Dead Blog Challenge continues to roll on. It’s not to late to kick your own hockey blog in it’s butt. talks about the potential name for the new Winnipeg team.

Greg D’Avis from The Post-Pessimist Association ponders where his favorite player will be skating next season.

Vic remembers an old friend who rooted for the ‘wrong team.’

Last night, Alix Wright gave us an 80s song remake we can sink our teeth into. (I know, I know, I’m not proud of it either)

Nic talks about the Colorado Avalanche and their draft picks.

I’m off to work, so if I missed your #SCFblog post today, put it in the comments, and I will link to it tomorrow.


Also, even though he isn’t taking part in the challenge, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Roy from Wild Puck Banter was back writing on his blog.  Roy is a friend of the site, and of mine.  Keep going, Roy!

SCF Blogging Challenge Beginning Roundup

The point of the Stanley Cup Dead Blogging Challenge is to get back to writing on my hockey blog, and drag as many of you along with me as I can.  There are a lot of good writers out there who fell out of the habit of updating their blogs, and getting them back up and running has been daunting.  Kicking this think in it’s backside has turned out to be a lot of fun.

I wanted to point out the blogs who are taking up the challenge, and ask you to stop by their sites to see what they are doing.  Drop them a comment and let them know that you’re reading their stuff (a comment to a blogger is like fuel for the soul).

If you want to come along for the blogging ride, now is the perfect time to start.   See the original post, and see what I’m talking about.
