Puck Huffers was started in November 2008 for a variety of reasons, namely to prove that we are awesome and channel our interest in the NHL into something constructive. We've pioneered innovations in inebriated liveblogging and have expanded our sphere of coverage to include Blingee studies, travel writing, and vampires. We tend to take a positive view of the future as well as the past and we'll pretty much have a little love for most men (and women, holla!) who have suited up to play a game of hockey. That said, there are certain people we'd throw off a cliff, shoot in a duel, or decline on a date. You can read our various posts to find out more. We focus on the Pittsburgh Penguins (as that is PH Staff's hometown team) but welcome fans of any team. General rules of Internet etiquette apply.
We used to be on Blogger. Those archives are available at puckhuffers.blogspot.com. We are now hosted on Bloguin, as of May 2010.
Kim aka kimberlass
Kim is from many places, a fact that makes her plural 'you' cycle from "ya'all" to "yous" to "yinz." She recently escaped Philadelphia to make a home in the sacred city of Pittsburgh. When not teaching young children, she is running off to India or to live in the woods or to hide in the Great American South or some other nonsense. She has a love of shoes that are too high, skirts that are too short, whiskey, and all things nautical.
Zoë aka debrisslide
Zoë is born and raised in Fayette County, PA. She really likes jam and trees. You can shut her up (briefly) with beer or peppermint tea. Her main ambition in life is to travel to South Georgia Island to visit Sir Ernest and see seals. She resides in Boston, Massachusetts and works in higher ed. Be very afraid.
Mary aka maryofdoom
Mary grew up in Golden, CO, which is the home of Coors beer and about ten miles from the real South Park. After meeting and marrying a dude from Latrobe, she now lives in Irwin, PA. When not watching hockey, she loves working on cross stitch, drinking too many vodka tonics, and destroying all challengers at Tetris.
Former Staff (whom we still love to bits)
Megan aka Megatron
Like a good Canadian, Megan has a strong affinity for beer, classic rock, and the greatest game ever played. You can usually find her unconscious, playing video games, or otherwise doing a shitty job of being an actual grown up. She is carrying the banner in Southern Ontario.
Ann is a paragon of awesomeness from Coyotes-land in Arizona. We hired her at the start of the 2009-10 season in order to assist us with our daily lives, a duty which she has performed admirably. If you want to win her over bring her Daniel Carcillo and fine Belgian chocolates.
While not a full-time staff member, Allison is essentially our favorite person. We leave her the keys to the van when we get into dangerous situations. She is a goddess among women.
If you have any questions about various PH lore, it's probably available in the archives somewhere. (We have a textured, layered past. It's Tolkienesque.)
Stephen S. made our banner, he's amazing. The guys at Bloguin are fabulous as well.
Curry Bless. Go Pens.
