A Pretty Good Year

Youppi Because of all the things currently going on around South Florida, On Frozen Pond quietly celebrated its first birthday last week.

We've seen some good stuff over the past 12 months, from various Bert and Ernie pictures to, well, I can't think of anything else.

Here's our first post, dated Sept. 24, 2006, from my hotel suite in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Greetings from San Juan

Welcome to my newest little corner on the world wide web.

Even though I'm not very computer saavy (as Homer Simpson once said, "The internet is on computers now?"), I'm going to try and bring you -- the Herald's dedicated hockey fans -- even better coverage than before.

So G, what does that mean? Well, extra stuff we don't have room to run in the paper will go here; my thoughts and musings (go ahead and groan) about life, hockey and the American way; and just general junk. 

Good stuff, I know. 

We're kicking off this blog from the beautiful city of San Juan, Puerto Rico, just hours after the Rangers beat the Panthers 3-2 in the first pro hockey game in the Caribbean (still looking for those yo-ho-hoeing pirates).

The Panthers are in Detroit today, but I'm not. A shame, I know. The end of this 10-day preseason roadie is just about upon me, but not just yet. I have more sightseeing to do. Buenas Dias, Fanaticos del Hockey (that means good morning hockey fans! I think.)

Bertbirthday Don't have anything else to say really. Just wanted to throw out of the best crappy pictures from the past year. If you had a favorite, let me know. I'll probably recycle it in the coming year. Because that's who I am (not lazy, just a cyber environmentalist.)

-- Also, trivia lovers: The original name of the blog was Blog of Ice. Yep, it sucked and it was canned almost immediately (although our webmaster hasn't fixed it on the main hockey page. And I kind of like it. So it stays.)
