An Anniversary Comes and Goes

BirthdayaMONTREAL -- For the second straight year I forgot my good pal's birthday.

Yes, On Frozen Pond celebrated the start of its third season in silence last week, too bogged down with LIVE! gamers and pertinent news regarding the Florida Panthers to do much partying.

And as is my tradition, here is that original post from San Juan, Puerto Rico, way back on Sept. 24, 2006. I feel it reads as true today as it did back then.

Happy Birthday, Herald Hockey Extra!

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.)
