We have added another member to the team and with it two new segments to the blog. The first went live on Saturday: Behind the Crease. In this series, Tim will bring his personal experience as a goalie to his articles. Tim’s second hockey passion is the law enforcement league, especially the league in Northern Virginia. We can’t wait for you to learn more about these teams. Here is Tim’s introduction:
Hi my name is Tim Stromberg. I have been involved with hockey for the past 14 years. I watch it, go to games, and played it until unfortunately three weeks ago I had to put away the equipment for good because I suffered my fifth concussion in just four years.
Hockey is not a sport to me. Hockey is a way of life; it defines who I am and how I got here today. It is something that I will love for the rest of my life, playing or not. I’m really excited to be writing for Friends in Cold Places because it gives me that opportunity to still be involved with the game. I really look forward to getting together with local law enforcement, fire departments, military and many other public safety personal members and sharing with you the hockey charity events, fundraisers, awareness days and numerous community outreach events in our area that they hold.
