A Fifth of WaP

It's hard to believe, but we're approaching Without a Peer's fifth season of existence. The Engineers - both the men and the women - officially look 100% different from the teams we started covering back in the dying weeks of 2009.

If you're wondering where the champagne corks have been this summer in-between the usual Know Your Enemy series, there's a pretty good reason for it all... life for your humble editors has continued to become busier and busier.

Gary, our women's correspondent, passed his professional engineer's exam earlier this year, and his work and travel schedule has picked up considerably since then. I've also been promoted at my position with the NY Senate, which makes for a touch more work for me as well.

Both of us have recently purchased new homes in Troy, mine closing early this month. On top of everything, I'm getting married in October... just in time for the start of the hockey season, in fact, the ceremony should be concluding around the same time the puck drops for the men's first non-exhibition game. A week and a half in the Caribbean follows.

Great timing, right? Well, for my professional life, it does make sense.

Fortunately, there hasn't been a great deal to talk about this offseason, at least from RPI's perspective. Other than the departure of a sophomore-to-be who played in just a few games last year, there hasn't been any major news to break. For the second year in a row, the offseason has been pretty mellow, even with the realignment that had us reporting every other week two summers ago now going into effect.

But have no fear. WaP isn't going away, not by a longshot. We'll continue to have full coverage of both men's and women's hockey this season with assistance from some of the many people who make WaP work, and we have a couple of new features that we're hoping to add in the coming weeks.

In the meantime... HOCKEY ON SUNDAY!
