CBJ Bloggers: Posts of the season

January 23, 2007

It’s the All-Star break.  Five days of relatively little hockey.  Yeah, we’ve got the Skills Competition and YoungStars game tonight, and the ‘big’ event tomorrow night.  All of which I’ll surely watch.  But not a whole lot to talk about.  I’ve got a few things planned for the next few days, starting with today’s feature.

There are now three full-time CBJ blogs I’m aware of:  (I’m ending sentences with prepositions… I think… so there!)  Army of the Ohio (Michael), The Jacket Times (Tyler and Yoder), and End of the Bench (Drew and Truth).  There are also two other sites that are more OSU related but have the regular feature on the Jackets: Death Cab for Woody (Herringbone) and Men of the Scarlet and Gray (sportsMonkey and el Kaiser).  I decided to go back through their archives and pick out my favorite posts from all of them for this season.

Without further ado, I present in chronological order, the End of the Bench picked CBJ blogger best posts of the season (so far…) (wow, what a sentence!):

  • October 11, 2006 at The Jacket Times – Tyler gives his take on enforcers, a dying breed?
  • November 14, 2006 at Army of the Ohio – Michael talks about a very trying week in Columbus.
  • November 17, 2006 at Army of the Ohio – Michael wonders how CGMDM has lasted this long.
  • November 22, 2006 at The Jacket Times – Yoder outlines his thoughts on the coaching search and selection.
  • November 29, 2006 at Death Cab for Woody – Herringbone beats me to the punch discussing the “Chimera Paradigm”.
  • December 1, 2006 at The Jacket Times – Tyler outlines one of the many goal controversies Jackets fans have lived through this season.
  • December 6, 2006 at Army of the Ohio – Michael sums up the great feeling we all had in Columbus in early December.
  • December 12, 2006 at The Jacket Times – Tyler dishes on casual use of the “P-word.”
  • December 20, 2006 at Army of the Ohio – I have a soft spot in my heart for rants against the CBJ.  It’s where this site originated, after all.
  • December 24, 2006 at Army of the Ohio – Santa Mike.  Remember visiting him at the mall?
  • December 26, 2006 at Death Cab for Woody – Herringbone gives his account of the exciting OT win over Boston.
  • December 30, 2006 at Men of the Scarlet and Gray – sportsMonkey discusses yet another referee/war room glitch.
  • January 4, 2007 at Army of the Ohio – Michael takes a closer look at those who call the game.
  • January 7, 2007 at The Jacket Times – The refereeing mistake of the year?  You decide.

With thirty-some games left to play, here’s hoping you’ll get to read about a few more wins from these guys.  Stop on over to their sites if you don’t already, and read some of the great fan writing about the Jackets.  If they didn’t care, they wouldn’t write.

Thanks for stopping by the End of the Bench.  Come back soon.

  1. Haha, a great sum-up of the seasons’ most important stories as told by all of us. I like it.


  2. A great sum-up of the seasons’ most important stories as told by all of us. I like it. I wonder if we could get the official CBJ media/internet people to recognize us on a blogroll on their website?


  3. Tyler,

    Sorry, for some reason you got picked up by WordPress’ spam filter. Hopefully that is fixed now.

    It would be nice if the CBJ folks would have a corner (however little) of their world pointing out the alternate media options available to fans.

    I know Ted Leonsis does this on his personal website, but I haven’t seen this anywhere else. Of course, I haven’t really gone looking.

    Have you heard of other teams doing this?
