I have some pretty cool news to share. Perhaps I should insert a disclaimer saying “Well, I think it’s cool.”
Some of you might already know and some might not (I mentioned this on Twitter and Facebook a few days ago). As of last week, I’m an official contributor or writer or guy who types stuff on The Score’s newly relaunched hockey blog, “Houses of The Hockey.” Bookmark it now. I’ll wait. While I wait, I’m contractually obligated to tell you how amazing this site will be.
Essentially, I’ll be writing anywhere from one to two articles per week on “HOTH,” once the NHL season officially gets underway. And if I actually want to impress the super awesome and incredibly good looking people at The Score, I might aim for three articles per week (Ha – Yeah right!). Here’s the thing: all the content you’ll see and read on HOTH will be completely new and independent from anything here on Stayclassy.net.
Actually, that’s not 100% true. I fully intend on recycling bad jokes across both sites.
Something else I should clarify: Stayclassy.net isn’t going anywhere. In fact, I should take this time to reaffirm that nothing will stop Stayclassy. Not a lack of hockey stories, potential NHL lockouts or even Stephane Auger!
Actually, that’s not 100% true either. Laziness will definitely kill Stayclassy.
For people twisted (read: nice) enough to read my “work,” this actually means you’ll be getting more Stayclassy than ever before.
On second thought, that’s probably not a good thing.
My articles on HOTH will be slightly more serious and sort of “insightful,” whereas my Stayclassy content will continue to be ridiculous, immature and borderline embarrassing. And to prove this, here are links to articles I’ve already written for HOTH:
Yeah… season previews aren’t the most exciting thing ever, but I made up for that with cool pictures and lyrics to your favourite rock songs. Once we (the HOTH team and I) get through the team previews (I have two more: the Lightning on Sept 23rd and the Leafs on the 27th), the “carte blanche” topics can come out.
Major mistake by The Score. Giving me carte blanche on content direction might be the worst decision they’ll ever make.
I’ve been fortunate to enjoy several cool opportunities as a result of doing Stayclassy.net. I owe a huge thanks to everyone who’s read, commented, tweeted, liked and helped Stayclassy.net along the way.
Stay classy, Houses of The Hockey and The Score.
