Welcome, gallos!

If you haven't noticed from the byline at the end of the prior post on "meaningless games," there's a new face on the DBJ blog roster.  And let me formally welcome gallos to the team!

Howson and Arniel, watch out...the DBJ blog now offers the
writing team of Dark Blue Jacket and gallos!
Anyone who's been reading this blog for any period of time knows that gallos has been a top-notch commenter.  He's also been what I might call an "informed optimist" - a worthy foil to my all-too-often pessimistic (realistic? pragmatic?) view of the Columbus Blue Jackets.  I've enjoyed reading his, "Loved your piece, but here's what I think" comments over the months.  He volunteered to pitch in on writing for the blog as I wrapped up my vacation, and I eagerly accepted.

Beyond that, I've harbored a hope that this blog could eventually be a host for more than just my voice when it comes to the CBJ.  I know that I'm not the most insightful, hockey-savvy guy out there...but I like the Blue Jackets a lot and enjoy sharing thoughts with those who are of similar mind.  (And I appreciate the wisdom of those who ARE more insightful and hockey-savvy, too!)  Now, with the addition of gallos, blog readers get another very solid viewpoint to consider - one that isn't automatically in lockstep with mine...a very good thing, don't you think?

I've suggested to gallos there are no editorial boundaries as long as we adhere loosely to the topic at hand - that being the Columbus Blue Jackets and the National Hockey League.  I hope you are as excited as me to see what a DBJ/gallos blog can become over the days ahead!

Again, welcome gallos!
