If you're reading the title to this post and asking yourself, "What the hell is a 'pensimist?'" I don't blame you. In fact, I'm glad it even registered and garnered a response.
A few weeks back, I had said that I will have some announcements coming up as we get closer to the season and well, Pens fans, this is the first and arguably the biggest. It is certainly the one I am most excited about, so here we go:
Throughout the regular season, I intend to release a weekly podcast, entitled "The Pensimist Podcast." Below is the demo logo I put together last night. It may change in time, but for now, here it is:
The podcast will be more or less a recap show of the events throughout the week. How the games went, what players did what and how they performed, and other ramblings that I may have. I plan to release it every Sunday, but if there are other topics that I want to discuss anytime between then, I will release them when possible.
Of course like all of us fans, we do have other responsibilities in our lives. Like I said, I want to do one every Sunday, but there may be instances where I'm unable to release them. We'll play that by ear as the season gets going.
I am very excited to do this and depending on how well these go, I will attempt to get guests when possible to make this an interactive experience. With that said and as you can see in the logo, feel free to send me questions through my Twitter feed or comments on the website (adamwilliams13.weebly.com) and I'll answer them with my opinions on episodes.
I'm curious to see how this will take off, or if it even does. I know being a fan that we all love to talk about our Penguins. I know that there are other podcasts out there specifically dealing with the Penguins. I understand all of this, but I too have a passion like those hosts do and want to talk some hockey with some of the best fans in the world.
Thanks for reading and hopefully you guys will check this out. I promise to be as good as I possibly can be and make this informative, entertaining, and interactive. The last part only happens with your help, peeps!
Lastly, you may have read all of this and still asked yourself, "What the hell is a 'pensimist?'" When I post the first episode, hopefully within the next week, you'll absolutely find out, Pens fans!
(That right there, is called a "tease.")
Thanks again and.....
Is it October yet?!
