Ladies and gentlemen…

…welcome to Fight Mass. A UMass hockey blog by and for UMass students and alumni.

My inspiration for this blog comes from a few of the established ones I’ve been reading throughout the ‘o9-’10 season, namely Fear the Triangle and Tri-Corner Blog, as well as The Ice is Life, which is admittedly a very witty and well-written Lowell blog LOL JK it’s a bunch of monkeys with typewriters trying to recreate a Curious George book and failing. And while those are all excellent in their own right, I hope we can blaze our own path with this one, focusing more on the student fan perspective to go along with analysis as this exciting season progresses.

We’re at about the halfway point of the year now, with the boys getting set to take on Union at the end of the month in the UConn holiday tournament. This break means that there won’t be much new to discuss, so I intend to use this time to recap the season’s happening thus far and to look at the big picture in Hockey East. I’ll be attending the UMass basketball game against Memphis in Boston on Saturday and I’ll be sure to write about that as well – this blog’s not just for hockey, although that is the main focus.

Right now it’s just me, but I hope to get others involved ASAP. Let me know if you’re interested in contributing to the blog. In the meantime, I’ve written up a long About section and I hope you check it out; it’s a lot of my personal background and what got me into UMass hockey, as well as other stuff about this blog and the team.
