First posts are always the worst.

Thursday, May 25, 2006
Wow. Well, here I am on BlogSpot. After seeing a lot of current sports bloggers use this site as their main place for blogging, I decided that I would move from FoxSports Blogs to here, after seeing FSB degenerate over the time of the Next Great Sportswriter II contest. To be honest, it was beyond ridiculous what was going on there. I admit that blogging can be a pretty testy experience, with exchanges made between people who disagree all the time. But FSB was just a real bad place, with tag spamming and trolls running rampant.

Which is why I moved to BlogSpot. Not only do I like the ability to have a custom layout, but I feel like I have more freedom in what I can talk about and not have to worry about being dragged down by a drab community.

A little about myself, to start. My name is Michael, but my online handle is "Lune" when I'm posting around the 'Net and at other sites. It's just a nickname I ended up picking up a few years ago that stuck. This blog, above all else, is a hockey blog, with a focus on the Columbus Blue Jackets. I've been in love with hockey for a long time, and after I moved to Columbus last year, I instantly found myself drawn to the Blue Jackets, despite their young age and rough beginnings.

Which explains the name of this blog: Army of the Ohio. One of the many stories behind the Blue Jackets' name is because of the state's connection to the American Civil War, both as the largest supplier of uniforms, and soldiers who took part in the war, Columbus being no exception. I thought the best name I could come up with for this blog was something that referred to the Jackets, and also referred to the Civil War, which I used to enjoy reading about when I was younger.

I'll do my best to update this blog as much as possible, and with the Jackets long out of the playoffs now that the Conference Finals are going on, I'll focus on what is going on in those series, while touching on any news I can find about the Jacket's offseason movements.
