Turning Five

A lot of stuff has happened in the last five years since HBIC started. There have been wars fought, Presidents and Prime Ministers elected and re-elected, births, deaths, weddings, divorces, trades, signings, relocations, and expansions. We've seen a new Royal Couple, a deceased face of terror, five different teams capture a Stanley Cup, multiple fan favorites retire, a new generation of stars emerge, and a piles of stories that have shaped and reshaped our lives. And that's only the tip of the iceberg of what we have witnessed in the last half-decade in life and in hockey.

HBIC rolled into its fifth year of existence back on January 21, and it went by without a lot of fanfare mainly because I didn't want to draw a ton of attention to it. If you've been reading since the calendar turned to 2012, you know I've been talking about awarding prizes all year long in celebration of HBIC fifth anniversary.

Today, I am proud to present two prizes to the two men who sent in guest blogger articles: Mr. Peter Santellan and Mr. Mike Engle. The HBIC "Shwag Bag" has a bunch of stuff in it that I have been collecting and waiting to award to HBIC readers, so I'm going to unload to these two men for their efforts in January. I have asked them via email what they would like, and their prizes are being sent out this week. Well done, gentlemen, and keep the articles coming!

Five years. Seems like it went by so fast! Thanks for reading, everyone, and here's to the next five-year celebration at the end of HBIC's first decade!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
