You wanna know what grinds my gears?

Well here you go..........

- You wanna know what grinds my gears? "Fans" who ever so constantly take it upon themselves to get players to not want to play here. Example: Colten Teubert DOES NOT deserve all of the crap that is hurled his way..... I'm not saying that he wants to leave but in all honesty if I was in his shoes, I would want out..... But back on point - He is a 1st round NHL pick and a World Junior Gold Medalist. Enough said.

- You wanna know what grinds my gears? People who get up or sit down during the play to obstruct peoples' views. Such dumb dumbs.

- You wanna know what grinds my gears? People that think they know EVERYTHING about hockey and constantly yell out for penalty calls that were not penalties or call for off sides when the player were clearly onside. I have one guy in my section that my buddy and I call "Mr. Obvious" and he does such things. His best is when the puck hits the post and he will holler "Oh that just the post" or something along those lines.

- You wanna know what grinds my gears? How people talk and talk and talk during the game.... during the play! And what they are talking about has nothing to do with the game.

- You wanna know what grinds my gears? The "bus driver" guy in my section. Any time that he feels that there is a call (or 2) that goes against the Pats that he doesn't think that are legit he hollers "Bus Driver" at the ref or refs. This happens frequently.

- You wanna know what grinds my gears? People who holler "shoot" at every chance they get during a Pats PP even though there is no shooting lanes or no true opportunities. People you have to realize that 99.9% of teams have a PP that they try to operate and they can't shoot every time. I'm glad they aren't the coaches.

- You wanna know what grinds my gears? People on other blog’s with their comments regarding Linden Rowat. People need to smarten up! Rowat was a darn good goalie while wearing the red, white and blue. He played 183 regular season games with the Pats and has a career 2.90 GAA. Okay I do agree that he was no Josh Harding but last year ANYONE playing net would have looked “normal” (I still call last year a write-off). I may not give Rowat a standing ovation but I do appreciate what he did for the Pats and as far as I am concerned he was one of the top netminders I have seen wear a Pats uniform.

I definitely have more but I think I will end there.

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
