Here’s the thing. Gameday Blog Posts suck. I mean, sure they were cool when there was like 1 or 2 hockey blogs out there. But in this blogger modern era… they are just mostly annoying. So much so that I was ready to get rid of them for this upcoming NHL season.

But, during a TRH Senior Staff Meeting this past summer at the most Canadian place in all of Glendale, CAPumperNicholl and I brainstormed an idea that just might revolutionize the sports blog Gameday Post… FOREVER!!!


As some of you might know, this past March, a beautiful and healthy baby girl came into my life.

Yes, she was conceived during the 2014 Stanley Cup Final.
You can’t get more “sports fan” cliche than that.

Well this season, for each Los Angeles Kings game, TRH Baby will take on a panel of #TeamTRH Blogger Experts by selecting which team will win. We’ll keep track of their win-loss record and we’ll see at the end of the regular season… just who the hockey expert is.


My money is on her.
She also has less body fat than most of #TeamTRH.


Presenting the Inaugural TRH Baby vs Bloggers™!!!

Alright, it looks like both of these hockey babies have selected the LA Kings as the victor tonight. Tune in at 7:30pm on NBCSN to see if they are right!



Via the LA Queen of Meme, we are celebrating Derek Forbort making the LA Kings roster…
(until Matt Greene is healthy)

My defenseman is also named Forbort.
