Hello to any potential readers out there, now or in the future:
My name is Kyle and I started this blog out on a different host before deciding to make the move to WordPress. I initially started it as a way for me to publish my musings on sports, specifically hockey, baseball, and football. I realized during college that I have a love for writing sports after having written a statistical analysis on the growth of hockey in Western Pennsylvania for my senior thesis. I have always loved sports, playing, watching, and talking sports and have had a dream of working in the sports industry for much of my life. After realizing that this dream may not be possible, I eventually came to the conclusion that hosting a blog may be the next best thing.
My first site started as a way to mostly talk about the sport currently in season – college and professional football in the fall, hockey in the winter, and baseball in the spring and summer. However, after having written through a season of all of these sports, I realize that I was unintentionally making my blog more hockey centric than I thought it would be…but I’m okay with it. Hockey is absolutely my favorite sport, I love playing it, watching it, and reading and discussing it. I really enjoy all of the numbers that are involved in hockey and that makes for great writing material for me. So, that is part of the reason I wanted to switch hosts for my site – to start taking the blog in a new direction.
My blog is now going to be largely hockey-based with other parts sprinkled in. So from September through June, I will largely write about hockey, writing a weekly preview/recap as I did this season, projections, transactions, etc. During the part of the season when football is also being played, on Fridays I will have a section called “Football Fridays” in which I cover a select number of college and professional games and any headlines that take place from the previous week. Then, during the part of the hockey season when baseball is in play, I will cover baseball on Mondays, calling it “Major League Mondays.” My coverage of baseball will follow the same pattern as my football coverage, except that I won’t be writing on specific games. I may end up following specific teams or series that I find interesting but I’m not certain yet. I will also write a section for players and pitchers of that week. I will still do a season preview and recap series for both MLB and NFL but want to get to the point where I am writing daily on the sport of hockey.
I hope everyone enjoys my new direction.
