H-town update

Just checking in from Houston while watching my A’s in the playoffs. As you may have noticed, I’m preparing to maintain my site for another season and am enjoying tracking down schedules and the like. My find of the day? Lawrenceville and Delbarton will meet for the first time since the 1999-2000 season in a February matchup at Aspen Ice in Randolph. Although the biggest news on campus may have been this gem: Lawrenceville’s Trees Begin Magnificent Fall Show. I guess fall can officially begin now that Lawrenceville’s trees have decided to observe the season. (Big Red fans, pardon my sarcasm, but c’mon. That press release is a bit much.)
On a personal note, I spent the 2006 baseball season working full-time and broadcasting for the Alexandria Aces in the independent United League. It was a tremendous season, capped off by the United League championship, which I had the pleasure of announcing. After the season, lonely for big-city life, Rice athletics, and my friends in Houston, I moved back to the Space City and searched for employment. I have recently been hired as assistant sports editor for the Observer Newspaper Group, part of Houston Community Newspapers. I still plan to pursue broadcasting opportunities for next season – I will be broadcasting high school football games for TSRN Sports this fall – but Houston is the plan for now.

As for the high school ice hockey season, we’ll see what happens. I am committed to maintaining the standings and schedule pages, as I have in years past. I hope to post updates and miscellani on this blog, although entries will be more whimsical in the absence of first-person game recaps. I have not yet decided about rankings other than HNIB Top 10s. So that’s the plan. I hope you will continue reading this site, clicking on ads, and sending me e-mails with facts, reasonable opinions, and suggestions.

Speaking of suggestions, check out this article about a former New Jersey high school opponent of mine … it’s good reading: Wayne’s Coyne Journeys to Botswana. And I’ve enjoyed reading Dan Rosen and co.’s Varsity Aces blog when I miss my NJ HS sports … here’s hoping it makes for good hockey coverage come December. Finally, it’s been great to hear from writers, coaches, parents, and fans again, and I really appreciate the inquiries about my life and even the occasional job offers. I’ll be writing again as the season approaches.
