  1. Great podcast again this week, guys! I especially enjoyed the segment where you broke down the Fox Sports Network broadcast regarding sports radio and the NHL. I thought a lot of their points were rather silly, but the one about having to play hockey to appreciate it made me laugh! I’ve never played hockey, have only skated recreationally on an occasional basis, but I absolutely love the sport. I think anyone with a modicum of intelligence would appreciate the skills that are needed to play this sport. I mean, think of it-here are guys with knives on their feet, able to thread a 3″ piece of rubber through a forest of sticks and legs to a teamate who is skating AHEAD of them, and they still are able to land that rubber on the teamate’s stick! They have to be able to estimate where their teamate is going to be when they fire the puck at them. That takes some vision and intelligence. And while we are on the subject of intelligence, I would like to point out that more often than not, when a hockey player is interviewed on TV or radio, they come across as humble, intelligent guys who appreciate their fans and are happy to be playing a sport they love. That’s more than I can say for the average NBA interview-most of the time I am thinking “What did he just say?” And you don’t often read about the NHL having players with multiple arrests as the NFL does. As a mom, I am more than happy that my kids’ favorite sports heroes are all hockey players!
