Girls, We're Famous!




X-Posted on Confession's of a Teenage Hockey Chick

Okay, so as usual, I was reading the sports section this Saturday morning to see some interesting news about the Sabres beating the Islanders and winning the first round (!!!) when I noticed that EVERY section of the paper had the Sabres on the front. Even in weekend life there was a whole article on female fans in hockey... so this got me interested. I read, and read some more until I noticed some blurbs on the side of the second page. On top it was titled 'Signs of the Hockey Times: Check out these examples of women making their hockey presence known:' then I freaked out after reading the very first blurb:

- An online hockey blog, "Hockey's Ladies of Greatness" (http://hlog.blogspot.com/), devotes itself to puck chatter among women fans of professional hockey teams (including Heather and Paige, who write about the Buffalo Sabres.)

After I finished freaking out, I continued reading the rest as it told about the Cap's "Hockey 'n' Heels", pink jerseys, nearly half of females attending games and how women much enjoy spending money on hockey stuff (duh).
So yeah, I'm (We're) FAMOUS! Kinda... still pretty wicked.

Don't beleive me? Check it out!

We're local celebs, Paige! How can we use this to our advantage in a way that would allow us to meet Max and Timmy? :-)

Gotta run and get a paper now.

It starts with a big black bag and ends with "girls, kidnapping is dangerous and wroooong."

Paige said...

Great idea Heather!
I can see it now:

"Who are you?" -random Sabre
"We're the ones that make you look good..."

Soon HLOG will take over the WORLD!!! *muah ha ha* ;)

Meg said...

Congratulations, ladies. Very cool.

The Buffalo News--first step toward world domination? Hey, you've got to start somewhere. :)

Shan said...

Woo hoo! Way to go girls!

Jordi said...

Of course Shan, we can't do it without our audience! Without them, we're just a bunch of whiny girls at the end of a Britney Spears concert.

If they did a poll, I believe they would find Buffalo is the city with the highest hockey-fan density. Other cities have fans within them; Buffalo has a city of fans. Who'd read a paper section without the Sabres on the cover, after winning a round of the playoffs? :)

It's huge that HLOG got mentioned! You have to think they've got plenty of fan sites to choose from - great for you to get the nod!

That's the coolest thing EVER! Way to go Heather, Paige and all us cool HlOGers. First stop Buffalo News, next stop, the world!

Elly said...
