About Us

Thank you for visiting Ginger Donkey Hockey. GDH is a blogging site that offers an opportunity for Fan based opinion in a blogging forum.

At this site, we are huge hockey fans. No one fan is more important than the next. We may not be so called ‘experts’, with close insider contact to the professional hockey industry, but our opinion is no less significant.

How often do you hear ‘Insiders and Experts’ speak of trade rumors that are really more about an educated guess than anything else and most often incorrect?

 

FAN EXPERTS and HOCKEY FAN PTSD

Hey, we are ‘Fan Experts’. Most of us have lived the emotional highs and lows, ups and downs of our favorite teams, players and sports. We may show it in different ways. Depending on ones age, these feelings have come and gone many times – possibly causing a form of ‘Hockey Fan PTSD’.


BEING A FAN REQUIRES DEDICATION

We have probably played hockey at one level or another, perhaps currently playing.  Or maybe never played before. Does not matter. Standing or sitting on the sidelines and watching without any control of the outcome requires dedication to the sport and a willingness to put our emotional stability on the line and in some cases on display.

 

FIGHT BREAKS OUT IN THE STANDS

How many of us have spilled a beverage or vice versa on someone next to us in celebration or have seen a fight break out in the stands (or been involved). We as fans can be unpredictable. Yet, we are fans and deserve to be heard.


We may not always agree, but sports provides an opportunity to discuss a passion that we mutually share. Opportunity to respectfully share our thoughts and respect the views of other.


Take Care And Stay Safe


And Keep Your Stick On The Ice.

GREETINGS  

Thank you for visiting GDH.  My name is Don MacLean (Donny Mac). I am the primary Editor and Author.  Guest bloggers will also provide articles of interest.

I am a long time hockey fan, still playing several times a week.  I have been a coach / Trainer with over 40 youth teams in my time, including hockey, baseball and soccer. 

WHY THE NAME – GINGER DONKEY HOCKEY?

Interesting story.  In my younger day I had a ginger colored beard. My nephew (thank you Chris) called me Uncle Don, then Uncle Ginger Don and it eventually evolved to Uncle Ginger Donkey. A named created with love.  

So, not a big reach to add my favorite sport to the name – hockey.

 

Hopefully you will find this site interesting. Thank you once again for visiting.
