What the heck is a "Planet Blog"? Well, the Planet Blog (Or PB for short) is just a place where I can babble about what's on my mind. I have this site and I might as well make more use of it. Now I will tell you right now that I am not a writer. I suck at it. So don't get too critical about what I may talk about here. Speaking of that... What is going to be talked about here? Anything I want I guess. It maybe hockey related and it may not. I have no idea what I am going to do with it right now.
Most of you are probably reading this from the message board since that is where the Planet Blog is created. But I do have a dedicated page for it and would prefer that you go there to read it. LINK
I will probably add a link up in the navigation eventually. Though I am not sure where I will put it. Maybe under Community? Who knows. The message board area is just so you guys can respond to whatever I feel like writing.
Patrick Reusse of the StarTribune put Don Lucia on his list of honorable mentions for Turkey of the Year. I believe this is the 3rd year in a row that Don has graced this "list". He was 1st runner up in 2006 because of the Holy-Cross debacle..... Now I know that Pat just loves to bug the Gopher Hockey fans. Anytime he mentions Don or the team it's usually negative. Okay, maybe it's always negative. I get it. He just loves getting us all riled up and we just love to give him the satisfaction by reacting to his crap..... (I did like his pick of Marian Gaborik for Turkey of the year.)
But I have to ask you Pat. Do you ever get sick of ripping Don and the team? Don't you have something better write about? Maybe something a bit fresher? I just think that it's getting a bit old. But whatever gets you going I guess.... You know, I don't think I ever recall seeing Pat covering a game at Mariucci. Maybe he's afraid to show his face there or something. Who knows.... I did see him in St. Cloud last season. He also showed up for the Friday afternoon game during the 2007 Final Five, but those are the only two times I have seen him since GPL started covering the Gophers back in October of 2006... I wonder if he will ever get over to Mariucci and write something positive about our Gopher Hockey team? Nah! I wouldn't bet on it!
