Blog night and such
I wanted to post more after my last post but I just didn't get around to it. Blogging at the game was something I really enjoyed doing. The guys over at the Thrashers (Ben mostly) did a really good thing with hooking up a "Blogger Night" at Philips. It was a really cool thing for us "little" people and I had a nice time viewing the game from a different aspect. Not only was it cool to watch the game (while blogging) from the press box, there was also free food, and good company. I enjoyed meeting the other bloggers for the team as I know most of them only by their writing. It's good to finally put names with faces. After the game we got to head "down under" and check out the post game conference with Hartley and take a peek into the locker room (I have pictures so hopefully I can get them to load). It was fun to see a few of the players running around in an after game scramble and the looks on their faces when they saw a random group of people in the room they were just in. I enjoy the change in perspective the most and I hope to one day get media credentials to enjoy this perspective more often.
That brings me into my next point.. there has been a debate going on for awhile about wether or not internet only people (like me) should be allowed credentials. There is so much going back and forth on it that its hard to say where it will go but I know I would like credentials simply to allow me to sit up in the press box and blog. As a fan of the Thrashers before I had the roles slightly reversed I had the privelage of going to practices and meeting the team (more than once) so to me that little thrill is over. I do realize there are probably people out there that would abuse the credential privelage and ask for autographs and pictures. I would like to be able to take pictures for the simple reason that I am an avid photographer and would like to build up my portfolio more for when I graduate college. I know I might be a rare type but I don't think it is asking for too much.
Well that's really all I have to say for now, I must get stuff done before tonight's game.
Check out hockeybuzz.com for my sterling debate.. or well center debate that doesnt' really involve Sterling anymore since he isn't a center.
Talk to you soon or I'll see you around Blueland :)
