What could be better than spending the entire year in the Trenton area?
OK, maybe I shouldn’t answer that…
But although the details on exactly what I’ll be doing are a little sketchy, it looks like I’ll be covering the ECHL’s Trenton Devils for the 2008-09 season.
People who know me well — and I think I’ve said this on this blog a few times as well — know that I consider myself to be more of a hockey guy than a baseball guy, so I’m very grateful for this opportunity to finally cover hockey on a full-time basis.
I’ve more or less taken a few weeks away from doing the Thunder blog on a day-to-day basis to focus on covering the Somerset Patriots during their championship run…apparently, all I do is cover championship teams these days.
But, with that said, I obviously do plan on getting some Thunder talk going in the next few days. I’m going to announce my post-season award winners, churn out some original and exclusive features with never-before-seen quotes, and quotes from your favorite big league stars on what their favorite memories of Yankee Stadium are.
I also plan on bringing back the best photos I took from the course of the season, as well as taking a look at which players from this year’s team I think you’ll be seeing on the field at Waterfront Park in 2009.
