First post

Hello and welcome to my new blog DropPuckMurphy!

First off, a special thanks to Kevin Greenstein, Editor In Chief of Insidehockey.com for helping me set this space up. Kevin has been instrumental in my growth as a hockey reporter and is a close friend. Thanks KG!

So I've created this space to basically serve as a spot for me to link my latest hockey scribblings and also the latest edition of the Inside Hockey Radio Show which I host with Toddy Carroll every Saturday 2-4 p.m. ET on "NHL Home Ice" XM 204 and Sirius 208 and 3-4 p.m. ET on the Team 990 in Montreal (www.team990.com).

I will also share my latest thoughts and scoops on current hockey topics and happenings as well as a little glimpse into the adventure that is my life as a Johnny Cash, Irish punk-rock and reggae loving hockey scribe. Obviously, the site name is influenced from the greatest Irish punk rock band of all time, the Dropkick Murphys, both supporters and good friends of mine. Thanks to them for so many good memories and hockey talk!

I feel I have been blessed to have first off my family, friends and health but also at times a interesting, comical and enjoyable career and life. So here and there, I'll try and bring you the reader into it.

I will also share links to stories, blogs, audio clips and videos, especially those done by my friends and colleagues in the business.

I have no idea really how this will be received but I needed an online home of my own, so here it is! Thanks so much to all who have supported me and helped me get to where I am today, especially my amazing wife and my family!

OK, that's all for now!
