- The Whalers Warehouse
- The major part of my site
is devoted to hockey and to my favorite team, the Hartford Whalers.
If you know anything about hockey, you know this proves that
I have a strong soul. I have devoted several pages to this peculiar
fascination -- to my history with the team, to my favorite Whaler
Frank Pietrangelo, and to the events that led up to the team's
utterly moronic and asinine move to North Carolina.
"To The Manor Born"
- I'm working on a site devoted
to this classic BBC sitcom (1979-81), which starred Penelope
Keith and Peter Bowles. For those looking for updates, I apologize
for my lack of attention to the site! I will be returning to
it very soon.
- The Kevin Smyth Report
- Former Whaler Kevin Smyth,
while playing with the IHL's Orlando Solar Bears, was struck
in the eye with a puck during a December 28, 1996 game. Kevin
was one of my favorite Whalers, and he continued to play despite
his impaired vision.
- The Eric Lindros Worship
- It's back by popular demand.
For some reason, this page has elicited more comment than anything
else on my site.
- But back to me.
- I'm originally from Minnesota
and lived there all my life until I took this publications director
job at Smith College in Massachusetts.
For those of you wondering, I don't talk like any of the characters
in the movie "Fargo," nor do I know anyone who does.
While I have taken western Massachusetts and, thanks to the Whalers,
the city of Hartford to my heart pro tem, I miss many of the
great things about Minneapolis. I'm carrying on this sort of
love-hate relationship with the Guthrie Theater, and with the
Walker Art Center too, although the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden
is still just about my favorite place on the face of the earth.
But what I miss most about Minnesota is shopping at Dayton's
and Byerly's. ..but thanks
to a recent grand opening, I can once againgo to Target

Was Andy Warhol a hockey fan?
"I will never forgive Rupert for taking me to 'La Cage aux
Folles' on 'Gay Night.' I didn't know it until we got there.
These two dykes came over and said hello, and I asked them what
this event was all about, and they said it was for the 'Islanders,'
and I said, 'The Islanders hockey team needs a gay benefit?'
and they laughed and said oh ha-ha no. And then Rupert nudged
me that they were talking about Fire Island...."
--"The Andy Warhol Diaries," August 25, 1983
|And here's some more about me.
I have a BA in public relations and communications from the College
of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota, and an MA in theatre
literature from Smith; my thesis was on the malcontent in Jacobean
drama, focusing on Daniel de Bosola in John Webster's "The
Duchess of Malfi." I know: could I BE any more obscure?!
