Wow. One of the legends hangs them up

I didn't see this coming at all, but the infamous Jes Gőlbez, founder and propietor of Hockey Rants (plus a better contributor to Fanhouse than I am), has decided to hang up the ol' blogger skates and become an everyday fan again.

I don't even know what to say, other than definitely Hockey Rants was one of the inspirations for this blog, that Jes was one of the real pioneers in hockey blogging, and despite his modesty, we're a worse off blogosphere without him.

Good luck in whatever you do in the future, Jes. Don't be afraid to drop in sometime in the comments here, and no matter what happens, we'll always have the memories.

Oh, you just HAD to bring that up again, didn't you?

I'm just trying to rile you up into a Niedermayer-style retirement. Or maybe a Selanne-style one (are they serious?! A two year deal?!).

Hey, but thanks, Jes. You're the one that taught me how to use an umlaut in my posts (among many more critical things, of course).

You'll be missed, Jes. I remain hopeful there will be an Ali-like return to the ring some day on your own terms.

It'd be funnier if you said he was hanging up the keyboard.

Damn, no more Golbez?
