I discovered the great sport of hockey just as I was finishing high school, and quickly adopted the nearby St. Louis Blues as my favorite team.  That love of hockey only grew more intense as I attended film school at Southern Illinois University - from there, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the film industry.  Upon the advice of many friends, I decided to start my own hockey blog.
