Oh hi there

August 5, 2009

What you’re seeing right now is the brand spankin’ new River Hawk Hockey Blog, in its third iteration. Only now it has a name that isn’t quite so unimaginative. Bonus points if you noted that the new title is a Jack Kerouac reference.

This new site being, obviously, hosted on WordPress as opposed to the perpetual pain in the backside that is Blogspot, things should go much more smoothly than the experience to which we have all become accustomed. Isn’t that nice? There are, of course, some drawbacks, which follow:

  1. Some things from the archives, so to speak, that were formatted in Blogger software will look a bit wonky. Font sizes will be off, etc. These will, we hope, be minimal, and should not be a problem in the future.
  2. Any existing bullet points show up, for some terrible reason, as STARS in this WordPress theme. STARS! This regrettably cannot be changed, and as such, bullet points will no longer be used to illustrate anything. All lists will be numbered.
  3. Because Blogger software makes no distinction between “Categories” and “Tags,” everything will be a little harder to find in the archives for the time being. It’s going to be time consuming, but we’ll be working on it because we love you so much.
  4. Quotes (from message boards and the like), which just showed up in blocked off in margins and in red text on the old RHHB, will now have some hideous, large box around them. As such, they, too, will be used minimally.
  5. As far as we can tell, posting existing tables is somewhat impossible to get right in WordPress. How we’ll handle that in regards to the national poll in every Weekend in Review — where, it should be noted, our River Hawks will be quite high all next season — remains to be seen.
  6. We can’t really tell if anything else is wrong. If, in the course of your browsing this site on a nightly basis so as to soak in our hockey knowledge, talent for writing, and constant insults of Amherst, you happen to notice anything untoward, please let us know.
  7. All posts prior to this one (i.e. pre-move) have the sentence, “Thank you for reading our trite thoughts via feed,” and we’re not sure why.
  8. This introductory post is far, far too long.
  9. We have not yet mentioned that we’re glad you’re here, which we are, Hockey East screwed Lowell in the title game, which it did, and Amherst sucks, which it does.

See ya in the fall.

Go ‘Hawks go!

    Great new site, can’t wait for the season to begin. This year home ice in the playoffs and another trip to Boston, and then on to the NCAA’s. Anthing less and will it mean a disappointment to the 2009-2010 season?
