Swim over and check me out on Fear the Fin

As 2011 draws to close out here on the West Coast, I figured this would be the perfect time to update you all as to my whereabouts since the conclusion of the 2011 YoungStars Tournament.

Back in August, I was brought on board to Fear the Fin as their Worcester Sharks columnist due to the work I did over the summer with my research articles.  Since the start of the 2011-12 season, I have had a weekly post on Fear the Fin titled, “Woo Rewind,” where I recap the Worcester Sharks’ action from the previous week.  In addition, I have conducted interviews with players on the Worcester Sharks and posted a couple of San Jose Sharks game previews.

None of that would’ve been possible had it not been for the people who believed in me when I started on here back in February and those who didn’t strangle me when I kept tweeting them or emailing  them the links to my posts.  To all those people, I cannot thank you enough.  I also cannot forget to thank the players who were kind enough to take 5-10 minutes and be interviewed via email for my blog.

For now, this will be the last post on Finz and Stitches.  The blog will stay up as I put way too much time and work into it.  Who knows, perhaps it’ll become similar to David Pollak’s “Working the Corner” blog and be nothing but Worcester Sharks news and notes if I get offered a chance to work for them.

Thank you again to everyone who read all 117 posts here and encouraged me to keep pursuing my dream.  Who knows where I’ll be at this time in a year but if 2011 was any indication, I’m totally excited for 2012.

As a bonus, here are my works from Fear the Fin since September.  Please enjoy.
