Another media hockey blog

talkingducksbanner.jpgSteve Hymon isn't the only recent media type who has taken up blogging about ice hockey. Talking Ducks: A Ladies Hockey Salon is by Orange Coast Magazine managing editor Rose Flores Medlock and senior editor Anne Valdespino. Their focus is, obviously, the Orange County NHL team. As the hockey season approaches, business is picking up at Michael Zampelli's popular Let's Go Kings website and the other blogs in town such as Rich Hammond's Inside the Kings at the Daily News, Gann Matsuda's Frozen Royalty and Matthew Barry's page at Hockey Barry, a longtime fan who famously used to dance in the seats at Kings home games — he's a Hollywood casting director by day — has a fun post up about collecting post-game quotes in the locker room for the first time. Excerpt:

I felt like I was at my first day in Junior High School. My hair didn’t look right. I wasn’t wearing the right clothes while everyone else was sharply dressed....All I could think of was, “Don’t ask anything stupid. Don’t ask anything stupid.”
