Hi. I am Alex Ness.
I will be one of the writers for The 5th Line.
I first saw a hockey game in 1968. It was not a beautiful experience, I had the flu. It was live, in person, North Stars versus Blackhawks. But that was neither the starting point, in reality nor the impetus for my love of hockey.
I will write of that later. Others will be joining me here, people from different places in life, geography, time. We all are joined by friendship and hockey.
So I am a writer by trade. I am not a sports writer. I do not consider myself a journalist. I am a fiction writer professionally, poet in particular, and an amateur regarding blogs and covering sports, and popular culture.
So please, join us upon our journey, as long as there is hockey, somewhere, I hope we all might write about it.
