I should have done this a while ago

I finally realized while writing the post called Damn Tins on my other blog that I enjoy writing about hockey cards.   A lot.   That post was one of the easiest posts to write in quite a long time.  That fact told me something.

This blog is way overdue. I love hockey too much not to focus more time on my passion for the game.

I'm not going to stop writing on my other blog, but it will slow down over time.  The $30 a week habit blog will also become a little more baseball centric.  Which is fine.

What are you going to see here you ask?  A lot of Maple Leafs cards.   The Joe Sakic PC has been moved from the other blog to this one.  The hockey want list has also been moved over as well, and will be added to over time.

You will also see posts that represent my opinions on topics, events or anything in general related to the world of hockey.  There are lots of commentators on TV that talk a good game (or at least they think that they do).   They are fair game. 

The one card rule will still apply here.  Just because the word (card) is in brackets, doesn't mean that you're not going to get your dose of cards here.  They could be the focus of a post.  They could just augment an opinion I'm making about something (or someone).  

Should this guy have been named captain of the Leafs a couple of years ago?  Who knows, because being captain of a team in today's NHL doesn't mean what it used to.   Just ask Ryan Callahan. 

Hopefully this little corner of the universe will add a little something to your hockey enjoyment. 

Oh, and there's one other thing that will make its way over from the other blog.

thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Good luck with the hockey blog.

  2. I found you! You need to collect 1500 Serial Numbered Hockey Cards. Just kidding!!
