I started blogging for the now defunct "Blanc, Bleu et Rouge" in 2007 as the Avalanche correspondent. When Joe started MHH he decided that there wasn't enough rough humor and bad punctuation, so he invited me! I'm a recreational goalie for some pretty mediocre adult ice hockey teams and have tried to learn as much about the position as possible and as such will attempt to pass that knowledge on to anybody that is bored enough to ask.

I've followed the Avs since they were the 'Nords. I've spent the vast majority of my life in areas of the country with little to no ice, whether man-made or natural, but hockey has always been a passion.
