So in case it is implied with my blog, yes, I am quite the hockey fan. I am proud to share my FREE hockey printables and have hoped people have found it useful! If you follow me on Twitter you’d know that about half my original tweets are hockey-centered, and many retweets originate from the land of Hockey Twitter.
While I was originally (and still am) a pro baseball fan, I appreciate the hockey community from top to bottom. The fans are super genuine, kids leagues are promoted, and the games are a blast to watch. Fun all around. It’s not perfect, but, it’s not football.
So when I spend a third of my life at my (awesome) job AKA that time where I am NOT homeschooling, setting up school, or being with my family, hockey talk (and jazz) tend to dominate my headphones, when I choose to listen to something. I am very selective with what I listen to though, often sticking to Marek vs. Wyshynski and Russo. So when Wyshynski was launching a new podcast with fellow puckhead (and more regular at times than M on MvsW) Dave Lozo, I knew I wanted to listen…
Puck Soup is a pretty cool podcast, a good balance of hockey and pop culture. As a person who knows NOTHING about pop culture it is insightful to get filled in a bit. And when home entertainment is Martha Speaks and cooking shows (both good!) it’s nice to hear some f-bombs every once in a while.
During a particularly busy week at work I was happy to see that Wysh and Lozo had put up a nearly two hour podcast with Sydney Esiason. She was great! As she is a journalist dating the Islanders’ Matt Martin, she gave a cool take on hockey player weddings. Wysh delivered a line that I enjoyed so I tweeted it out.
Next time I logged on to Twitter, from work mind you, I saw I had a few mentions. My following is small (like the effort I can put into my blog) and I simply assumed it was a generous fellow KBN blogger sharing one of my sets of homeschool preschool trays. But nope, it was none other than Greg Wyshynski himself retweeting me. Well then! Thanks for that, it made my day, enough to blog about it!
