Hello everyone! I too am very excited to be here (writing at G5H that is) and hope that you'll enjoy my posts as much as I enjoy reading (ya right, reading!) the ones that have been posted here before me. I am relatively new to the world of hockey fandom (only a few years now) and wonder how as a Canadian I didn't fall in love with the game (or the goalies) earlier in life. I don't have a "favourite" team so to speak. In truth, I just love hockey so I will watch any hockey I can find be it on tv or here in the city. I'm lucky enough to live in Ottawa where we have both an NHL team (Sens) and an OHL team (Ottawa 67s) so there is definitely no shortage of hockey here. So that's me, now I'd like to introduce you to the man who introduced me to the world of goalie love, meet Brian Elliott:
Look at those eyes. They did it for me. And not only is he incredibly adorable, I've met him and he is incredibly sweet. There were tears when he got traded here:
And a few more when he left there to go here:
Because we don't get too many visits from either of these teams in the course of a season. So, I am left to flip aimlessly through my NHL tv package desperately trying to find a St Louis game just to get a glimpse.
So that's a bit about me! I look forward to sharing more of my goalie love with all of you!
