Ten

3 September 2014

Well. This was supposed to be a well-timed post that would be part of a bigger celebration marking ten years of this site. But I thought the anniversary was tomorrow and in fact it was yesterday. I suppose I could backdate the post and no one would know! But that is pointless. And it’s practically RWD tradition at this point to write a late post.

Writing this site has been an extraordinarily rewarding experience. It’s stress-free, it’s flexible, it’s fun, and has zero consequences. Well, it costs me a little money every year to host this site, but that’s about it.

When I started this site, I had very little interaction with the vibrant community of college hockey fans. I posted on [racist mascot]sports.com a bit, I guess. Then I joined tPB and USCHO and started reading other blogs and eventually tweeting and things happened.

Things like dressing up as MEg and hanging out with faux refs in St, Cloooud.

houghtongroup
Or traveling to Houghton and meeting up with a bunch of Tech fans and tUMD fans.

Siouxcia
Or meeting this fine woman and role model.

togasgroup
Or dressing up like an idiot to get on ESPN and witnessing one of the most exciting moments in Bulldog history.

zamboni
Or dressing up like an idiot and getting picked to ride the Zamboni at the Final Five.

mariuccigroup
Or enjoying one of our frequent wins at Mariucci with the finest fans in hockey.

juphockey
Or getting checked from behind by Jupiter, GPL Headmaster.

biddlynwedding
Or standing next to my best friends as they promise to spend their lives together. With me.

Thanks readers, tweeters, commenters, detractors, linkers, and assorted party animals. It’s been a blast so far!
