Merry Christmas from all of us here at Blueshirt Banter. The Banter wouldn’t be the place it is without the support of this community, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the day however you decide to spend it.
2020 has been an extremely challenging year, and we also know that it has also been one that has impacted many individuals and their families. Odds are there is someone reading this who lost a loved one this year. Please know you and everyone else who has lost someone are in our thoughts. We will get through this together.
The holidays can be a rough time of the year, and 2020 hasn’t made anything easier. You may be a die-hard daily reader, a lurker, or somewhere in between, but know that you are a part of this community, and we are thinking about you.
There’s no good way to transition, but at the very least here’s to hoping you got some cool Rangers swag in your stocking, placed under the tree, or received from a friend or loved one. Enjoy the day however you decide to spend it, whether it be in person safely, or virtually through the use of Facetime, Zoom etc.
To those who celebrated Hanukkah, we hope you had an enjoyable experience however you decided to spend it. And for those who will start celebrating Kwanzaa on Saturday, best wishes to you as well.
It has been a difficult year, one with many emotions, and one that will be coming to a close soon. We understand that it has been hard for many, and we’d like to say that in times of darkness, try and look for the light wherever you can find it. NHL hockey will be returning soon. The WJC tournament is here, and there will also be NWHL hockey to watch at Lake Placid.
Thank you for being part of our community. Thank you for listening to the podcast. Thank you for any and everything you do to make BSB the place it is. Here’s to a great 2021 for you, for those you love, for the hockey community, and for Blueshirt Banter.
With lots of well wishes, love, and support
— Joe, Mike, Tom, Shayna, and BSB staff
