As I briefly Tweeted last night, today is one of the days where DetroitHockey.Net makes me feel old. I debated letting it go by unrecognized but that hardly seems right.
I started YzerFan19’s Detroit Red Wings Page – the site that eventually became DH.N – 5,419 days ago. That day – September 15, 1996 – was my 5,419th.
As of today, I have officially been working on this site for half of my life.
I wish I had profound things to say about the nearly 15 years I’ve been doing this. So much has changed between then and now.
I’ve gone through the list before but when I started this site, Google was not yet public. The term “blog” did not yet exist. Vladimir Konstantinov was still able-bodied. Paul Coffey was still a Red Wing.
It’s been a long time. I hope I’m lucky enough for another 5,419 days doing this.
