Annnnd we’re back.
Football has returned, baseball is narrowing into the October pennant push and that means hockey is slowly coming into focus. In fact, hockey returns a bit quicker than usual this year, as BU hosts Union in a rare September, nonexhibition tilt, in just over two weeks.
This year’s coverage is going to look a little different than in years past. The big shift will be the reduction of game recap articles with the addition of a more in-depth midweek piece that looks back at the games of the prior weekend.
The thinking behind this is two-fold. One, I figure most people who follow the site already know what happened in the game and I will continue to do twitter updates throughout the course of play. Reason two is that I will not be at every game due to my own hockey schedule (woo, go club hockey!).
For big games, i.e. Beanpot, Playoffs, BC games, I will have something postgame. In the place of the recaps, I will be posting more pictures than in prior years, although there is a twist to that, too.
At the end of last year, I joined the student radio and will hopefully be on some of the radio calls this year. Obviously, for games that I’m on the radio, I will not be taking photos.
I still plan on having previews for all games, those will not change.
In the next week or so I will have a season preview out. I’m also currently working on a new header for the blog to go along with the semi reconstructed content format.
The countdown is on for the Union game. September 30th is right around the corner.
