Video games are but one of my passions. Over the past year and a half, I’ve been slowly getting back into professional sports, a world I had abandoned around the 2004 NHL lockout. To put it plainly, I’ve been dying to write about hockey for the past few months, but the 2012 lockout sort of preempted anything solid. With the recent CBA negotiations finally coming to a close and hockey starting up again next week, I felt the time is right to finally shove my new sports blog out the door.
Say hello to Fake Dead Girlfriend.
This is a joint venture with a good friend of mine who’s also been itching to talk sports. I’ll mostly be talking about hockey, but I’ll throw in a bunch of articles every so often about sports that I don’t know shit about, like basketball and football. It’ll be funny! You can laugh at my cluelessness. And for the serious football, baseball, and basketball commentary, my partner will have things covered. Anyway, just because I’ve started up Fake Dead Girlfriend doesn’t mean I’ll be ignoring Pixel Bubble. It’s just that sometimes I feel like dissecting THQ’s continuing implosion, and sometimes I feel like doing the same thing but for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Anyway, check me out there if you dig sports rants, and if you don’t, stay here for your regularly scheduled video game commentary.
