Welcome to the third hockey blog of the SB Nation family, Winging it in Motown! Die by the Blade (Buffalo Sabres) and Mile Hile Hockey (Colorado Avalanche) were the first two hockey blogs on SB Nation and I'm pleased to be the newest member of the family.
My name is Christy Hammond and I've been blogging about the Detroit Red Wings since late 2004 on my blog, Behind the Jersey. I grew up cheering for the Red Wings with my father and have been a lifelong fan. I'm currently a student at the University of Michigan where I'm double majoring in Sport Management and Communication Studies. I hope to eventually work for a public or community relations department for a professional sports team (ideally an NHL team). I am actually a Red Wings public relations intern for the 2007-2008 season.
Winging it in Motown will be a hockey blog focused on the latest Red Wings news and games with further analysis and opinion regarding these topics. I will cover any interesting NHL news, but the majority of the posts will feature Red Wings stories. Since I am a Sport Management major, you will see me highlight business decisions made by the league itself and even other NHL teams.
If you have any questions for me, I'd be happy to answer them in the comments or via email!
