End Of Season Thank You Post

This is about the time of the off-season that we typically put up a post, thanking the readers for their support, and thanking the significant others for their patience.  So we won’t stray from tradition….here’s the end of season thank you post.

Oh, and we’re not retiring again.  Let’s just get that out of the way.

Thank you very much for reading and participating on this site.  I really cannot say that enough.  After closing down the Short Shifts blog at the end of last season, I really didn’t know what was going to be in store for this year.  Hockey news was happening in the summertime, and my first thought would be, “Oh!  I’ve got to go get a post up about that!”  And then I’d remind myself that I didn’t have a legit place to write it.

As the new season approached, our friend Charlie Larson with the Admirals introduced me to Jason Karnosky — an actual clinically trained bona fide WRITER.  And we decided to put this little blog together.

I wanted this site to be different than Short Shifts so that it would be more discussion-driven, and less beat-writery.  And again, I must thank you for embracing this platform in that way.  A Roundtable isn’t a Roundtable unless lots of voices are heard.

And I must also compliment you on your temperment.  There are some sites where the fans are just brutal to each other, making people like me more of a babysitter than a moderator.  Disagreement drives discussion, but disrespectful rhetoric doesn’t work out well for anybody.  The fact that there’s only been a handful of comments that I’ve needed to edit for content or delete, it speaks volumes to the character of the fans.  So thank you for that.

Specific thank yous…..

Thank you to Jason for providing a lot of the non-gamestory content each week.  You are an absolute pro, and you brought a kind of credibility to the table that I just don’t have in me!

Thank you to Sutty, for being hilarious, and for stepping up to the plate as a writer, instead of just a twitter guy.  The off-season is UNDER THERE!

Thank you to Andy Grebe, who helped out a lot with the audio clips that you listened to on this site.

Thanks to Kristen, for her patience, and for being more actively interested in the team than ever before.  Glad we could make a hockey fan out of you.  Plenty of room on the bandwagon.

And let’s thank the readers one more time.  I’m not in this for the site hits, but it sure makes things a lot more fun when there are discussions going on about the team that we all love.  Thank you for making this site exceed my wildest expectations.

We’ll still put content up during the off-season, so when news breaks, and you have an opinion about it, your thoughts will definitely be welcome here.

Talk to you soon.

  2. Great job again this season, the blog is a wonderful tool and conversation spot for the fans. Thanks for letting me pen an article this season. I hope I can be of more help next season.

  3. Thank you for all the coverage provided. Great site and really like the Twitter and sound bites this year.

  4. The fans should be thanking you guys for your hard work and effort that you guys all put into this site. THANK YOU!!! :)

  5. Thanks to everyone for putting up with my 6th grade “under there” humor and my 6th grade writing… It has been fun and i look forward to seeing you UNDER THERE next year!

    p.s. hopefully our internet money from Roundy’s finally comes in, because when it does, my first purchase is going to be a Mountain Fury mascot suit. Then I am going to trip Roscoe in a cheese race and shout, “you just got FURY-IZED bro”. Payback is a dish best served with Mountain Fury…

  6. Thanks to all of you for providing an outlet for the fans to get together and for providing information and insight on the team.

    I’m looking forward to next season already.

    Thanks again,

  7. Thanks guys for having a place to get news, reviews, and a spot for the fan to be heard! The admirals always end up on the back burner in the local sports scene its great to have a place where ads hockey is the main topic! Thanks again, october is tooooooo far from now!!!!

  8. Thanks Ryan et al. for doing the work for all of us Ads fans to share our thoughts, concerns, and well, just have an outlet for venting.

    Until October, up, up and away!!!

  9. First, I’d like to thank God for making this all possible…I’d like to thank all of you at Admirals Roundtable for giving me something to read when I was bored at work at 3AM. I’d also like to thank the Brett Palin fan who got pissed at me over my pedo-mustache joke. I look forward to more shenanigans over the summer!

    Sutty- If Roundys is going to be a bunch of tight wads, may I make a suggestion for next season? Drop the Mountain Fury, make the switch to Shasta: Mountain RUSH, and yes RUSH must always be typed in all caps.

  10. Thank you for all the effort that you put into the site and the writings.

    Even the 6th grade humor and writing is great, just think – next year, junior high :) Here’s a great mascot outfit – http://www.regretsy.com/?s=poncho+headress

    There are all sorts of Mountain xxx branding options here if noone ponies up –


    I think the Shasta Moon Mist PP adds a nice modern flair with the Mooooooon and Mist is perhaps more fitting for the PP at times this season – not really thundering, roaring or in a fury, but just misting enough to be bothersome and blind you when yer wiping off your eye glasses. :)
