INCH Podcast: October 30, 2012

INCH Podcast

The first INCH Podcast of the INCH Writers era is posted for your listening pleasure. Surprisingly there is more hockey talk than usual. As stated when we made the transition, our current editorial format doesn’t mean that we don’t like college hockey. The staff has lots to say about teams making an early impression.

INCH Found on a Cocktail Napkin

Ten Reasons InsideCollegeHockey.Com Folded

• Maintaining simultaneous bias against 59 Division I teams threatened to cause a rip in the space-time continuum.

• Got in trouble with Apple lawyers when we said we launched in 1976 in Steve Jobs’ garage.

• In retrospect, we shouldn’t have funneled all our money into the Ryan Lochte speaking tour.

• Recent readers surveys show fans eschewed thoughtful, passionate writing about teams, players, and issues in favor of stories about Honey Boo Boo’s recipe for “sketti.”

• Joe Gladziszewski’s side project, AgainstAllThingsJessMyersLikes.com, takes up way too much of his time. (Gladdy: “My Rams!”)

• We’re still waiting for our cut of hockey-related revenue.

• We let it walk halfway across the University of North Dakota campus on a sub-zero winter night.

• Our work was so good, its excellence couldn’t be captured by binary code.

• We couldn’t figure out how to get from Grand Rapids, Mich. to Rochester, N.Y. in less than 30 seconds.

• No more napkin jokes about UNH national titles after they won the … HA! Like that would ever happen.

INCH Writers Lives Here

Welcome to INCH Writers, the new home for the thoughts and opinions of those of us who produced Inside College Hockey for the last 10 years. We’ll check in from time to time with some of our most popular coverage elements from the past, including plenty of podcasts, and other thoughts as they come to mind. We look forward to continue to share our thoughts here, and we promise to continue to express our long-held biases against all college hockey teams, conferences and regions.
