This is the obligatory first post. My friends over at http://totalgoalie.wordpress.com/ (Total Hockey) asked me to write a blog during this coming season, and even though I’ve never written in this format, it seemed like a good challenge. As you may know, I have written a few articles in the past for http://www.ingoalmag.com and will continue to do so. It’s been a lot of fun to see the response to them and it’s something I would like to continue.
The plan is for this blog to be very goalie-oriented. If you follow me on Twitter (@MikeMcKenna56), you are well aware of my varied interests in life. I also know that such things aren’t captivating to everyone, and quite honestly, you probably wouldn’t be following me if I wasn’t a professional goaltender. This blog is written by a goalie for goalies. My hope is that the knowledge and experience I pass along can also be found useful by coaches and parents looking for some insight into one of the most difficult positions in all of sports.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to interacting with you all!
