There’s been a lot of internal discussion recently about the state of this Hockey Blog™. And by internal discussion, I mean discussion in my head because the only person who regularly contributed to this website last season* is now blogging for a higher power.

*Jesse Cohen is now officially podding for the LA Kings dot com and you can listen to All The Kings Men Podcast there.

As the start of this current season got closer and closer, I devised more and more great concepts on how to put an end to the The Royal Half dot com. Thankfully, real life got in the way and I decided to not follow through on any of them. Although I would still love to do a Vader-esque funeral pyre just for fun.


Don’t you worry though. The TRH Twitter Account isn’t going anywhere. And I’ll still be overseeing Bark Madness 2017 for LA Kings dot com this season. I just really need to figure out what to do with this blog now that everyone else has copied what we’ve been doing for years. And then all of sudden we are the ones that have nothing original to say.

In the meantime, I’ve decided to do what I’ve always been great at… getting stuff for free!

Presenting the 1st Ever TRH Totally Biased Unboxing Video! You send us stuff for free… we’ll say “We Like It!” on the internet!

This week, we got a chance to unbox an amazing new item from the folks over at Puck Lucky. And we didn’t even have to lie about it this time… their stuff is great! Check out the video below for more information!
