New, comments

We've survived our rookie season.

March 16, 2016 Gunnar Carlsson posted the first set of women's hockey links to PPP.  Somehow I ended up in charge?  I've learned a lot in a year (okay I still don't quite get NCAA but Annie is patient) and I just want to thank everyone who helps out, who reads, who comments, who promotes WHW. Relative to the rest of PPP, the numbers are still kind of tiny but we're doing okay. Respectable, even. - nafio

If you're an actual weekly reader who isn't a member of PPP, we promise we love you lots. Maybe for a birthday present you'll make an account and drop a comment? (we love the PPP readers too, but y'all aren't shiny) - Baseball Annie

Keeping the links here on PPP means keeping them in the sight of people who probably don't think of women's hockey every day, so even those who just see WHW on the front page and click on something else... hopefully the idea that women's hockey goes on more than two weeks every four years is sinking in.
