On The Verge

May 25, 2011

To anyone visiting this site other than an an inquiry from Google Images, allow me to explain why HGW has not been terribly active during what is the most exciting Boston Bruins season in 20 years.

I’m enjoying it far too much. Far too much to have to worry about composing a daily blog on the subject of my beloved Big Bees and the incredible run they’re on. I fiinally realized how much more enjoyable it could be without the constant worry about finding the time to write about it afterwards. Let’s face it folks, a regular working person trying to moonlight as a Hockey columnist is no easy task. It requires a certain amount of energy and time that can, given all of life’s demands, can be in very short supply. Thses days I’m having trouble finding it.

The readership here was always very small, I must admit, but I adore each and every one of you who visited and took the time to comment. Nightlfy, Ozzy, Chippy, Gonz, K of C. Everyone who blogrolled or read a single word I wrote here. Those of you who hated me and argued, thanks as well. It was a blast. It’s just not feasible to keep this going as I was with all the other irons I have in the fire.

To that end, you can always find me over at kensocrates.com or on twitter. The work I did here will remain, for what it’s worth, and the odd Bruins post may appear from time to time. I’ll avoid saying too much about what’s happening right now in fear of jinxing it.

You understand. We’re all so emotionally damaged, we Bruins fans. Even one game away from the Finals we’re waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Anyway, thanks again and hopefully I’ll see you around.

Go Big Bees!
