bc is just a fan who setup this site because other hockey fans/bloggers encouraged him. Maybe they just wanted him off their sites. Nice way of saying take off, eh?
I’m no expert and don’t claim to be some oracle of hockey or college of hockey knowledge. What I hope to do is provide fans with a reality check on the hype and spin so prevalent in hockey coverage.
We try to keep the rules to a minimum so there are only three:
(i) No cussing but be creative as you can with effen, freakin’ frackin’ F-bomb b-word etc. This blog has a ‘G’ rating and we intend to keep it. You’ll often see effen or F-bomb inserted when Gabby is quoted. Academicians use “expletive deleted.” We determined expletive deleted violates Rule (iii) but you’re welcome to use expletive deleted as well.
(ii) If you disagree with something attack the post not the poster. We hate cheap shots off the ice. No self-aggrandizing “have you ever played the game” stuff is not tolerated here. Hit hard, hit clean and trust that we have your back.
(iii) Have fun. Retired Hockey Mom says, “If it ain’t fun or it doesn’t pay a lot of money, it ain’t worth doing.”
Note: All posts are subject to editing or removal if deemed to be baiting or instigating, flaming, slamming, patronizing, indecipherable and/or nonsensical. The drop down email has never worked. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to send a private message.
Retired Hockey Mom is referred to occasionally. If she ever posts though, somebody is sent to the sin bin.
WordPress protocols require you to register before you can post. Your first post has to be approved, after that your posts go up automatically.
Our goal is to make sure that every post is answered. Not necessarily by me but will be if there is no other response. Some posts are rhetorical statements and we try to recognize and respect that as well. Who loves ya?
Get over the boards and have some fun….
