I usually don’t do Happy Birthday posts, well okay sometimes I do and I make them REALLY sappy and toss in some childhood photos and tell my mom, dad and Jenny that I love them very much (which reminds me I have to do a post for my brother in October cause I love him too)… BUT I just wanted to give a shout out to Alanah.
Alanah’s a female sports blogger, yes they exist, and not only that she’s been doing it for years and years and is a part of a hyper mega hockey blogging empire.
She doesn’t come out to conferences (although we tell her she should) cause she’s waaay over on Vancouver Island, but she’d be my choice to lead a discussion on hockey blogging, going from blogger to professional sports media vixen or even interviewing skills (in person or over Skype). She’s an integral part of The Crazy Canucks podcast and always manages to make me laugh… or feel bad for having a beer even though I bet she’s usually all wine-d up when she says that to me anyway.
We’re planing on meeting up with her this weekend when she’s in town, having some of those beers, sharing some laughs and talking about our world domination through hockey podcasting… okay we’ll settle for Vancouver domination. If I can’t get Trevor to hop inside a large novelty cake for you by Saturday, I hope this blog post will do – Happy Birthday Alanah!
Update: Interesting side note… apparently Alanah’s birthday is really big news in the online hockey-talkin’ world….
