If I counted how many times I have started a blog post in my head or thought about how much I needed to blog the past few weeks, the number would add up quickly. I'm quite sure most of my posts have started with, “well, I’ve been away for a while…” Honestly, I have had every intention of keeping up with things. It’s just…everything else has gotten in the way this summer and hockey found itself at the bottom of my priorities.
In an effort to stop this from continuing, I am bringing back Hockey Movie Sundays. I started this last year when the off-season seemed unbearably long. That was probably due, in part, to the lack of Predators playoff hockey last season. Nonetheless, watching hockey movies became my way of coping with the long, hot summer and got me geared up for the next season. This year, I thought I would incorporate my blog into things (everything played out via Twitter last year) and let you guys in on the action too. I’ll post my weekly movie selection on Fridays, we can all watch it on Sundays (hence “Hockey Movie Sundays”) and recap with comment discussion encouraged on Mondays/Tuesdays.
Like most hockey fans, I’ve got a running list of hockey movies to choose from so my well won’t run dry any time soon. However, I’m always open to suggestions of those more obscure choices and trust me, they’re out there. Just search Netflix and you’ll find some oddballs. I will probably start with something pretty obvious for the sake of familiarity. Here’s hoping this turns out well because at least I think this could be fun.
Let the movie watching commence!
