YouTube Wednesday

Well, for once my habit of dragging my feet paid off. Thanks to the Blades newest signing announcement, picking today’s video was a piece of cake.

I’m pretty sure we will all be enjoying Kyle Stroh’s scoring touch.

I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get excited about this season. Of course, I’d be more excited if they’d bring back a defenceman (or three) I like, but, I guess you can’t have everything.


Friday Links

The week flew by, didn’t it? Before we know it, season will be here.Anyway, here’s a fresh helping of your weekly links!

- If you haven’t read the inspiring story of the Everblades newest forward, Chris Kushneriuk, you really should. It’s going to be thrilling to watch his comeback story night in and night out.

- Your Wikipedia hockey page for today is about a team with one heck of a name: Buffalo Norsemen.

- Jimmy Buffet and the Charlotte Checkers old ECHL logo on one jersey?! If only I had the disposable income…

- I’m not sure what to make of this (because it’s just plain odd), but do you really want to die without saying you’ve seen bears playing hockey?

- If you’ve been reading for any length of time, you know about my obsession with homedecor made out of hockey sticks. That’s why this chair is right up my ally. The usage of goalie sticks is definitely a creative idea.

- Regular readers will also be familiar with my hockey cake obsession. How cool would this one be with an Everblades theme?!

By the way, if any of you are planning on hitting Germain for the Everblades free agent camp August 8-10th please let me know. I’m not going to be able to make any of them (and I’m sure a lot of others won’t be able to as well), and I’d love to publish your thoughts or opinions on the camp and players. Either leave me a comment or use the contact us button to let me know if you’re in.

I don’t know about you, but I need a bit of a pick me up today, and I can’t think a of a better way to do that than with perhaps the greatest moment in Everblades history.

I can’t be the only person who still gets chills.

On another note, I’m hoping to get the forums up and running soon. It’s going to be a bit delayed thanks to my microwave dying in the most spectacular way possible (basically, it was like a Once Upon a Time finale with less eyeliner and perfectly coiffed hair) and my usual boring life stuff, but it will be up soon.

I bet you thought I was lying when I said I was back? Well, here I am, and here’s your (very belated) dose of fresh links:

- Your Wikipedia hockey page for today: Anyang Halla.

- Today is the start of the North American Roller Hockey Championships at Germain. Have I mentioned it’s totally free?

- If that’s not your thing, maybe zombies are? The Ft. Myers Miracle are having a Zombie night that includes specialty jerseys to be auctioned off after the game. Bring your brrraaaiiiiiinnnnns and support another local sports team.

- I will never be happy if I can’t find a way to own this jersey

- After reading this, I have to say, I’m a little said we weren’t able to keep up our tradition of throwing plastic gators on the ice.

- I’m always a little amazed at how cheap you can find vintage hockey stuff on Etsy: case in point.

A quick note: you may have noticed some changes already, but the biggest may be yet to come. What would you lovely little swamp rats think of a forum? A place to dish dirt, trash talk other teams (and their fans), celebrate the good stuff and commiserate with each other on the bad? Yea or nay?


Good News…

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Luckily, I’m back in the saddle. I’m going to update some things and maybe add some new stuff, so keep checking back.

I don’t know about you guys, but I feel incredibly proud of Rob Madore while watching these highlights. Some of those saves he made were simply spectacular.


Everblades vs. Solar Bears (3/29/13)

YouTube Tuesday: Road Trip Edition

The Everblades take on the Solar Bears tonight at Amway arena in Orlando. What better way to get pumped than watching everyone’s favorite forward score some sweet goals against the Bears?

I hope some of you are planning on making the quick trip up to Orlando to watch the Blades take on the Solar Bears. I’ll be there with my cowbell tonight and tomorrow, I’m sure you’ll hear me in the arena and on the radio.

If you do make the trip, I recommend taking US 17 up it’s a little more interesting and there are a lot less people from Ohio driving 15 under the speed limit in the left lane.

Oh! Remember to keep your ticket if you leave your seat, everyone at Amway is way too serious about an ECHL hockey game. Also, your bag will be checked, and for some reason they feel the need to keep the cap of your water bottle if you buy it from the concession stand.

Also, eat at Hamburger Mary’s. It’s two blocks from the arena and the food is delicious.
