Just 20 minutes to go!

June 16, 2011

Its the second intermission of game 7… hard to believe there is just 20 minutes left until the offseason. For the record, I’ll be wearing all black tomorrow to mourn the passing of another season…

Will did such a nice job introducing himself, so I’ll follow suit with my own mini intro. My name is Stephanie, and I am the younger of the twins (by 9 days actually…) I reside in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and work as a sportswriter for the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League. I’ve worked as a locker room reporter, hosted Center Ice Radio on 1250 WSSP for 2 seasons, and now that I’ve joined the 40-hour working world, I write about the Admirals from my perch on press row. I’ve written for Slam Sports Canada, Sports Bubbler, Hockeywriters.com and currently work for Examiner, as well as write my own blog at the soon to be launched HockeyGalMilwaukee.com, so I guess you can say I kind of like hockey (just a little, right?)

It was almost 15 years ago that Will and I became friends, and it was our love of hockey that brought us together in the first place. Since then, we’ve spent countless days and nights talking hockey, whether it be on the phone, email, on facebook, AIM, I think we might have done the ICQ thing for a while but can’t remember, and  letters (you know, those things that are pieces of paper that are hand written on and then sent in by USPS?). Hell, i think there was one time a few years back we actually used smoke signals… But no matter where in the world we’ve been, we always had each other to do “hockey talk” with. Our conversations sometimes get pretty heated, especially since I’m a Pens fan who loves Sidney and he’s a Caps fan that hates Cindy. But at the end of the day, we hug it out and pick on the Phoenix Coyotes.

We have some pretty hilarious/deep/intriguing/comical/random hockey conversations, so we thought we’d put them all online for you to, not only enjoy, but put your two cents in on. We don’t expect you to finish our sentences like we do, but we look forward to seeing what you think on the topics we fight, I mean, talk about. Just imagine this is your local hockey bar and you see 2 best friends taking in a hockey game over a couple cold brews. Pull up a chair, we’ll share our pitcher if you share your thoughts.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to finish the last 10:00 of the 2010-2011 season. Mike Emrick, please stop talking about what you think the Bruins players are going to do their day with the cup. Let’s at least pretend this isn’t a complete blow out and one of the most boring games I’ve ever watched…
