Second City Hockey - Live From The Five Hole: Episode 2
Episode 14 - Second City Hockey - Live From The Five Hole
Will all the rumor and scuttlebutt whirling about the league as we approach the trade deadline, did you really think that we'd let it all go whizzing past us without sitting down to record one of our scintillating discussions? Of course not. So with that, we offer the latest episode of Live From The Five Hole, once again recorded by our exceedingly patient engineer/producer/candy procurer Marina at Optimus in Streeterville. Because we serve up only the finest guests, we were lucky enough to have Spector aka Lyle Richardson, P.E.I.'s finest hockey maven, who has his finger on the pulse of any and all transactions in the league, and has numerous outlets for his thoughts, namely Spector's Hockey, Fox Sports, and The Hockey News. And on top of all of that, you'll get our usual dose of wit and banter and numbskullery, all of which can be found via the direct download below, or from RSS or iTunes. Put our hockey thoughts in your ears, even though actually looking too closely at us would burn every hole of your eyes.
Episode 13 - Second City Hockey - Live From The Five Hole
Now before you get all "ehhhhhhh" about this being the first podcast we've done in about a month and a half, I'm going to tell you to slow your roll right f'n now. First, the Hawks had a home-intensive schedule which made it difficult to find an night wherein everyone was available and Sam did not have an Indian deadline to work toward. Second, it was the Holiday season, and we all had various familiar obligations. And lastly, as we had mentioned previously, we were efforting a for real, grown up studio to record in, and we were finally able to manage that. My wonderful girlfriend put us in contact with her cousin who is a profession in these sorts of things, and was ever benevolent in helping us out. We hope you notice a significant difference in the sound quality, particularly during our interview, which this week is with Sean Leahy of the venerable Puck Daddy on Yahoo! as we discuss Sid's non-violent protest to violent head shots, as well as some curiosities in the Western conference standings. We also look ahead to the Hawks meat grinder weekend before the All Star break, and plug a couple of upcoming events (don't worry there will be posts here for them).
So we invite you to please take a listen to our first podcast, coming to you thanks to our newly minted executive producer Marina and the fine folks at Optimus Chicago. As usual, the download links are below, and you can find us on iTunes searching for "Second City Hockey" or "Live From The Five Hole". Or you could just listen to something else during your work day like you usually do, but I think you'll get with this, 'cause this is where it's at.
Episode 12 - Second City Hockey - Live From The Five Hole
With the Hawks now back at home after the long road trip, you had to know it was only going to be a matter of time before you were subjected to yet another one of these, didn't you? In this installment we take a look back at the results from the Circus Trip, as well as ahead to a home-intensive month for the Hawks on West Madison. We HAD recorded an excellent interview with Ryan Lambert, a.k.a., Two-Line Pass, he of Puck Daddy, his eponymous blog, and also a member of Flames Nation with some weapons-grade vitriol for his favorite team...but, there were...issues. Pretty much the instant we concluded the interview, I realized that the phone call recording utility we use had crashed halfway though the interview, and the whole thing was lost in the ether. So as a result we apologize to both you the listening public and Mr. Lambert, as this episode will be filed away in the annals of history with the couple of "lost issues" of the Committed Indian. As always, you can download the podcast directly via the ink below, or you can get it in iTunes by searching for "Second City Hockey" or "Live From the Five Hole". I still hope you enjoy the abbreviated version we have to offer, but I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert.
Episode 11 - Second City Hockey - Live From The Five Hole
Don't look so surprised.You had to know we'd get another one of these in before they hit the road, didn't you? This time around, we were fortunate enough to have Tracey Myers, Comcast SportsNet's Hawks beat reporter join us. Hopefully, she'll be able to keep her position after associating her self with us publicly now that this is posted, but given the excellent work she does, I don't forsee it being an issue. Tracey gave some great insight regarding Coach Q's relationship with Stan Bowman while the Rockford Shuffle continues, and also some good info on what to watch for with Marty Turco, since she'd spent quite a bit of time covering the Stars prior to her time here. And if you don't like the lyrics, you can press fast forward.
Episode 10 - Second City Hockey - Live From The Five Hole
Due to the condensed schedule to start the season, we had to wait a couple days longer than usual to record our latest podcast because of Sam's hectic writing schedule for the Indian. But much like wine, White Castle, and the resultant farts from combining those two, some things just improve when they're allowed to age a bit. For this edition we once again welcome Al Cimaglia of Hockey Independent and XM Radio, this time to discuss the Hawks predictably up and down first 10 games of the season. Also among the things discussed: Sun Chips, Yeungling, and things found on my epitaph. Your role in this is very clearly defined.
Episode 9 - Second City Hockey - Live From The Five Hole
You didn't really think that we'd let the season start without an actual season preview podcast did you? You did. Well f**k. I guess we deserved that. In any event, we've got a full podcast complete with season previews, predictions, and an actual guest this time around, none other than the man who solicits the wonderful, insightful comments over at Puck Daddy- the man himself, Greg Wyshynski. We get his thoughts as the regular season opens and make him defend some of the picks he made today for the Western Conference, as well as get a sneak peek at what the East will look like tomorrow. Oh, and Killion actually managed to lock his car properly this time. As always, you can get it via iTunes, RSS, or the link below. When I chirp, shorty, chirp back.
novacaine for the hockey brain
Hilarious gaggle of hockey knuckleheads as a nice counter to media talking heads. No towing the party line here. Thanks boys.
