Happy Birthday Blog


  • Today marks the second anniversary/birthday of this blog. Regan's Rant was born February 7th 2007. Over the last year I've added video and audio while attempting to share my opinion on the happenings of the Kelowna Rockets. I could be all factual, but how boring is that? Don't get me wrong, being factual and being correct is part of the package, but sharing my opinion - whether you agree or not - is part of what this blog is intended to provide the reader.
  • You - the reader - is the reason I have this blog in the first place. If no one was reading, I'd shut this thing down in a heartbeat. While the number of visitors to this site are small in comparison to others around the league, I appreciate your visits and the comments you leave sharing your opinions on the team you watch as closely as I do.
  • I hope to add more video as the season ramps up into high gear. The players on the Rockets are always accommodating to sit down for a few minutes with me for an interview, which is used exclusively on this blog.
  • This blog would likely fall flat on it's face it was not for the support of the Rockets coaching staff. No, they do not proof read everything before I post it, but coach Ryan Huska is a forward thinker and believes the blog has some value in providing coverage of his team. If he was strictly against it, I would likely have turfed it long ago. I am here to play nicely in the sandbox, not throw sand in the teams face.

as a Silvertip fan who first came to appreciate you during the post game show after games 5 and 7 of the Western Conference (you remember we won those games in OT - and yes, I remember that you guys won the Memorial Cup)5 years ago, I want to say keep up the good work and we enjoy reading your blog... In fact we wish Jon Rosen of the Tips could/would start a blog...
