Programming Note
Monday July 06th 2009, 10:30 pm

Just a quick note to say I’ll be celebrating the one year anniversary of Beyond the Blueshirts (I can’t believe it’s already been a year!) by spending the week in the Adirondacks.  So don’t look for much in the way of postings this week unless something really important happens, in which case I’ll either drop in here and post about it or throw something up on Twitter.

For the record, any rumors you might have heard about Artem Anisimov and Nikolai Zherdev being invited to the Russian Olympic camp in August have been dismissed by national team assistant coach Igor Zakharkin.  The list of camp invitees won’t be released until August 1st.

I planned a long, soppy post looking back the roller coster year that was here at Beyond the Blueshirts, but I simply ran out of time before leaving for the week.  I do want to take a minute to say thanks to everyone who’s made this blog fun, and to those who’ve supported and encouraged me over the past year.  A special shoutout goes to Dubi Silverstein of Blueshirt Bulletin (if you don’t subscribe, why not?) who got the ball rolling by sending thousands of visitors this way early on and has been quick to offer help and support whenever asked.  And to Vlad and Anna, who’s translation assistance when I get stumped has been invaluable.  I also want to thank the folks who read and comment regularly — I won’t try to name you all for fear of forgetting someone — but this little side project wouldn’t be nearly as enjoyable without you guys.

Have a great week!

    All of us should thank you for the great job you did. I, for one, appreciate the translation of all the Avangard Omsk news and especially about one particular goalie, who shall remain nameless at this time:) Have a great vacation.

    Thanks for everything you do. I was so upset when Jagr left the NHL. I thought I would never find a place with translated articles on how he was doing, but here you are. Thank you so much for all your Omsk information. It is most appreciated.
