Happy New Year from the Union and Blue!


It’s officially 2014 and that means like most hockey fans, in a few short hours you will park yourself on the nearest couch and tune into the 2014 NHL Winter Classic. But before we all go do that, I would just like to sincerely thank all of our readers and everyone who interacted with us on the various forms of social media in our first 6 months of existence. With the change of the calendar to January 1st, 2014, Union and Blue officially turns a half year old!

I don’t want to turn this into a post where we look back on how far this site has come in such a short period of time, so I will simply say that we will only continue to grow as a blog and bring you coverage from the Blue Jackets fan point-of-view in 2014. In addition to reporting the latest news and opinions about the Columbus Blue Jackets, we will continue to promote the CBJ brand to other fan bases and potential new hockey fans.

In this new year we are going to explore other ways to interact with CBJ fans and share our opinions. Just last month we started our CannonCast YouTube video series, and that has been a fun and personally challenging way to discuss the team. CannonCast will only continue to improve during 2014.

So thank you again for reading the blog. The entire staff of the Union and Blue puts a lot of time into the articles posted here and we all value our readership. Happy 2014 everyone!
