Some Sports Illustrated writing I’ve done

Hi readers!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Sorry for being lazy, but as I said when I started this blog, I would only write when I felt like it and not just to write.

Anyway, as many of you know, I work at Sports Illustrated and our hockey editors have been nice enough to let me write a few things.

Back in February, I traveled up to Lake Placid, NY and covered the 35th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice:

Poignant reunion for the Miracle on Ice team at Lake Placid

Miracle on Ice players recall their iconic Sports Illustrated cover – Originally I was only supposed to write one post, but I spoke to some of the players about their cover and what they said was just too amazing not to write about. Ken Morrow actually brought it up to me when I told him where I work!  To be honest, I could have sat around and spoken to Jack O’Callahan for hours.

Currently, SI.com/hockey has a series called “Gut-Punch Losses.” Hey, gotta fill the summer pages somehow!

June 13, 2014- Game 5 Stanley cup Final – Being the resident life-long overly passionate Rangers fan, I was asked to write about their worst loss. Now, what I wrote about wasn’t their worst loss I’ve ever watched, but it was honestly the first game that came to mind. That said, writing about it brought back all the terrible memories of that game.
