There and Back Again... a Sports Bloggers Tale

Alas, so much time has passed since my previous posts... real life and its trials and tribulations wait for no one I suppose!

That said, it is time to awaken.

And now, I bring to you, from the lightning clouds of Venus will a bullet, the long lost D from D&D brings to you from the ether...... my 2011 NHL Draft Preview.

That's right ladies and gents, this is a magical time of year for the truly hardcore hockey afficionados. While I've been fortunate to have attended the 2002, 2008, and 2009 drafts, I was unable to attend last years draft (it was in LA, and the pocketbook did not lend itself favourably), and due to an unexpected but very fortuitous move back into the city of Toronto from the suburbs my plans to attend this years draft in Minnesota fell by the wayside as well due to... well... cost again! As much as I'll miss being one of the devout few, still sitting in the stands during round 5 with the bags under the eyes and the multiple empty coffee cups that both litter the ground and have dripped onto my meticulously prepared draft prep guide on my lap, nothing can take away the thrill of these 2 days for me.

However, what I will be doing this year is a lot of draft-heavy blogging. Over the next 3 days, I will be doing a mock draft of how I see the draft unfolding (barring trades), posting 10 at a time. Next weekend, I will be writing profiles on my most preferred (and realistic) hopes for who the Maple Leafs will select with their picks. During the draft, I will be blogging my thoughts about what is going on, quite simply just thinking out loud! I hope you all enjoy!

Look later today for slots 21-30 of the 1st round!
