The Rink Episode 65: Avalanche Blogger Roundtable

After day one of the Colorado Avalanche training camp, I got together with a five hockey fans to talk about the Avalanche, the media, twitter,  and the rest of the league.  It was a really fun conversation, and the only person who swore (and had to be bleeped) was me! So unprofessional. :)

A note about the production: This was the first time I recorded the show with this setup, and the volume levels are a little uneven.  It certainly wasn’t my intention for my voice to be the loudest.  It just worked out that way.  I’ll try and nail it next time I use it.

Please, visit their blogs, follow them on twitter, and enjoy the show.

The panel:

Angelique C. Murray – @Jori5280

Colorado Avalanche Prospects

Ryan Boulding and Johnathan Gebhart – @burgundyblog

The Burgundy Blog

James Kyle – @jqcolorado

Justin Goldman – @TheAvsGuild

The Rink Episode 64 Part 2: Classic All Over

It’s part two of my talk with Ryan Classic, where we continue our goalie discussion, and talk about Teemu Selanne, the retirement of Chris Chelios and that fine chili he makes, and Ron Tugnutt. Yes, really.

The Rink Episode 64 Part 1: Goalie-Go-Round

I was privileged to spend some actual face to face time with Ryan Mance, aka Ryan Classic, to talk goalies (which seem to be the big news lately), and much more. We went long, so this one is split into two parts. Diffidently check out part two.

Quick mention: I said that Peter Budaj and Jose Theodore played in Chicago. It was a mistake, and a slip of the tongue, because we were talking about Chicago. By now, I’m sure you are used to me screwing something up. :-)

Episode 61: Say Brother, Can You Spare Some Time?

After what feels like way too long, a new Rink has arrived, and it’s way too long.  I won’t lie to you, this should be split into two parts, but it’s just so much fun this way.  Jay Vean of the Avs Hockey Podcast and we talk about… The Avalanche.  But fear not, non-Avalanche fans, we talk about many other things as well.  We meander through the league, and come up with plenty to discuss.

Also, I say something in the form of a joke that some would attribute to the Family Guy – Empire Strikes Back parody, but I would attribute to Jordan Morris of Jordan, Jesse, GO! It’s not an attempt to steal someones joke, it just came pouring out, so please, consider it an homage, a tribute to a guy who’s podcast I truly enjoy.

The Rink Episode 56: Agree to Disagree

Tom Luongo and I have a few things we agree about, and a few we don’t.  From suspensions to goals, to hiring and firing, it’s a very special episode of The Rink. (OK, it isn’t very special, but I like it)

The Rink Episode 55: Joint Production

This episode of the Rink is brought to you by the number 19, and the letter A. As in Avs, as in Avs Hockey Podcast.  Jay Vean sat down with me for a talk about the Avs, and other doings in the league as well.

The Rink Episode 53: Tweetcast!

It’s another tweetcast, and I’m joined by a happier Jay Kumar to talk about the Toronto Maple Leafs, and by Justin Goldman of The Goalie Guild to talk about… goalies.  And we have a lot to talk about. It’s a fun episode of The Rink.

The Rink Episode 50: Around the Rinks

It’s a bit of a milestone for The Rink. Episode 50 finds Tom and I talking about our favorite teams, Tom’s night out, and plenty of other stuff, including the Bruins solving problems, and the NHLPA having a hard time solving theirs.

The Rink Episode 49: A New Hope?

This week on The Rink, everything is coming up bananacakes, as both Tom and I are having stellar starts to the season. But the Avs and Sabres aren’t the only things on our minds. Tom and I talk about the bottom end of the spectrum, which includes the Leafs, Red Wings, and Canucks, and we even delve into the dreaded trap. Enjoy.
