Announcement: Guess who’s back…

July 29, 2011

Quick thing here for you, which we mentioned on Twitter yesterday.

After taking a brief but necessary hiatus, The Ice is Life, the greatest thing to ever happen to your unexciting lives and the best sports blog that ever existed bar none, will be returning for the 2011-12 season. Believe it.

Once again, we must impress upon you that this change, and the original foreswearing of blogging, was not predicated upon the disgusting quality of Lowell’s play last season. We fully expect it to continue this year, in fact. Y’know what, having looked at the schedule, put us down for predicting somewhere between six and eight wins. It’s a long way back from Hell, after all.

We kid, we kid. We think.

Honestly, whenever we think about this upcoming year, we’re excited; that’s what having a panic attack, uncontrollably projectile vomiting and passing out means, right? So many questions that need answering. It should at the very least be a terribly fascinating year. New direction and all that. Plus, we’ve been promised no dump-and-chase, which was the bane of many a Lowell fan’s existence last season. We’ll just have to see that with our own eyes to believe it though. It’s been so long since we’ve seen otherwise, that maybe they’ve changed the definition of “up-tempo, puck-possession game” to mean something else entirely. Oh hell, it might mean dump-and-chase.

Back to us for a second, though: we aren’t sure, exactly, the capacity in which the blog will function for the coming season just yet. Will it be the same as it once was? Maybe (but probably not). Will it be be drastically different? It’s possible (and likely). Will it be better than whatever dreary garbage you were forced read through a veil of bitter tears in our absence? Definitely (and assuredly).

You’ll just have to read along and find out. As if you weren’t going to anyway.

We missed you terribly. And it’s not like we were gonna skip out on a chance to make fun of Alabama-Huntsville, Now With No Conference!

See you in September,

Your pals at TIIL


P.P.S. Go Lowell forever.

    About time, fellas… Disrespect is at an all-time high, although probably warranted..

    But seriously, welcome back. The internet is worthless without TIIL.
