As I sat in the car and drove with my family to other family’s homes, I thought about each of you dysfunctional and high-functional maniacs who have become part of our LA Kings community

You visit here as if it is your home, which it very clearly is, take the time to read, lurk or comment but, most importantly, contribute to what Jacob and I have, with your help, built on Surly & Scribe.

Not just a place to come and chat about our favorite hockey team but a place to bond about a passion most of us have held our entire lives.

It seems only fitting that as I visit family during this Christmas holiday that I reach out to my other extended family and wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah.
