(Because it’s site news, here’s some photos of German newspapers!)
Folks, we have a bit of house-keeping to announce here at FlamesNation as it regards to our managerial and editorial team. We have a couple familiar names in brand-new roles!
We’ve very proud to announce that Ari will be taking the reigns of FlamesNation as Managing Editor effective today. She’ll be handling the day-to-day operations of the site, cracking the whip on our bench full of excellent writers, and also continuing to churn out superb content. In concert with Ari’s promotion, I’m moving into a new role as Senior Contributing Editor. I’ll be writing just as much as I’ve been, but I merely won’t be (a) handling breaking news as often or (b) yelling at the writing staff as much (or as loudly).
For you guys? The only “real” change is you’ll see even more strong content from our crew.
And now, a message from the new overlord:
WHAT’S UP, NERDS.
I remember years ago first finding this blog. I can’t remember how I found it, but I do remember I kept coming back because it was teaching me things about the Flames I’d never considered before and couldn’t find in the mainstream. I even remember sheepishly tweeting at Kent years ago, asking him what “corsi” was, because I knew it was important but I’d totally forgotten why.
So this is weird for me. It was weird when I was asked to start writing here… what, eight months ago? Something like that. The idea that I’d be contributing to the blog that taught me so much more about hockey was inconceivable, and yet, there I was, seeing my name up there three times a week.
Now it’s going up another level, since I’m gonna be around pretty much every day. So get used to me. Or don’t, I’m not the boss of you. Just the boss of everyone else here. But I think it’d be nice if we all got along anyway, especially because we’re all here because we love the Flames, tumultuous times they may be going through or not.
And man oh man, have we all got some opinions on what’s going on lately. That’s why we’re here! I look forward to expressing strong emotions about this professional hockey team with the lot of you.
