What is Beer League Blog?

BLB-LogoYou play, live, and breathe hockey. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the regular season, preseason, playoffs, or the offseason; you are crazy about hockey. You have the game on your phone while playing a pick up hockey game. We get it, because so do we, and we decided to make a website about the best sport on the planet.

Beer League Blog is dedicated to bringing all the information that you want to know about hockey into one simple website. Be it league news, team news, or fantasy news, we will have it covered. We are a group from Southern Ontario who have a passion for hockey and have been waiting our whole lives for a chance like this. We hope you like what we have to offer, so please comment on anything and everything as your feedback helps us to improve this website and its content.

Bio: I am the founder of this website. My father Wayne, being the Montreal Canadiens fan he was, made sure that hockey was a part of my life ever since I was born. What did I do to repay him? I became a Leafs fan. I love the entirety of the sport though, and I can put my biases aside to give a proper objective opinion when required.

Bio: I'm a lifelong hockey fan that was lured to Philly by the Legion of Doom in the '90s. Although I am passionate (to a fault) about all things Flyers, I am greatly interested about all aspects of hockey. I hope to bring that interest in my writing.

Bio: Raised in a family with no history of interest in sports, one could say I am an anomaly. My passion for hockey developed while following Canada's hunt for gold during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Seeing how the single sport of hockey could unite a whole country with citizens of all types of backgrounds made me know that this was the sport I would carry with me as a Canadian no matter where life took me. 10 years in the U.S.A., my love of hockey has only grown as it reminds me of how proud I am to be a Canadian.

Bio: When I was approached by Spencer Cook to become a writer for the site, I was instantly overwhelmed with excitement. As a fourth generation Montreal Canadiens fan, hockey has been flowing through my veins since I entered the world. I have lost many important things to the sport including televisions, friends, tempers, and girls. I cried entering the Bell Centre for the first time (at age 21...), and I'll cry the day the Leafs win the cup. Hockey has and always will be number one in my books. Although I love to cheer on the Montreal Canadiens, I love the sport itself even more; I'm eager to share my passion through the site.

Bio: Born and raised a proud Maple Leafs Fan I have always loved and will always love the sport of hockey; from asking my Dad every stupid question about the game and trying to gain an understanding as a toddler, to screaming my lungs out at the ACC while Phil Kessel tried chopping down the tree that is John Scott. My goal as a Beer League Blog sports writer is to provide a little clarity to what can be a very confusing sport.
