With the NHL season winding down, I thought I’d take a quick moment and re-introduce myself. My name is Lora and I will be covering the Syracuse Crunch, Tampa Bay Lightning’s AHL affiliate, here on Bolts By The Bay. I wrote with Bolts By The Bay for awhile last year and had to take some time off but I’ve decided to come back.
I’ll take a moment and write a brief ‘about me,’ so readers get a chance to get to know me. I currently live in Iowa and became a fan of the Tampa Bay Lightning 10 years ago, mostly by random. My husband (then boyfriend) was always a fan of hockey and I decided I should choose a team to cheer for, which ended up being the Lightning. My first favorite player was Marty St. Louis for many, many reasons. The day he retires will be a sad day for, I would like to think, every single Lightning fan. Besides NHL and AHL, I also follow some junior teams here in Iowa. (And next year we’ll have our very own AHL team to cheer for here in Iowa as well! If you haven’t heard, the Houston Aeros, Minnesota Wild’s AHL affiliate, will be moving to Des Moines, Iowa and will become the Iowa Wild.) If I’m not following hockey, I’m usually just spending time with my family doing various activities.
I look forward to providing our readers with news, updates and game reviews of the Syracuse Crunch! You’re welcome to follow me on Twitter, @Electrifying.
