Kevin Smith has got himself a new job. No it isn’t another script treatment for Wonder Woman, and its not even another movie. Its a blog. A Hockey Blog. And he will be joined by other celebs who dig the game too.
Yahoo/AP reports that both Jason Reitman and Kevin Smith will join The Hills’ Lauren Conrad, and country music star Dierks Bentley to write blogs professing their love of hockey for the National Hockey League’s website. This is cool and all, but where’s Mike Myers?
I have to agree that Mike Myers should have been approached for this gig. If there is one stereotype Canadians have, it is their hockey, and Mike wears that stereotype like a nerd wears his pocket protecter. WITH PRIDE!
I do find it interesting that it took this long to catch on to this little “blogging” thing people do as a media focus. This seems to be the right way to do it however. They could have cheapened the blogging sensation by creating a commercialized candy coated version, but it sounds more like they found some celbs who are all known for their love of Canada’s game and capturing their genuine thoughts and feelings about it.
I do hope they don’t censor them, and just let them spill whatever they want about Hockey news. The second they steer comments or forbid topics, this will no longer be a blogging activity and rather would be what most of these guys are better known for.
