From The Crazy Canucks website:
The crew is going mobile for an upcoming episode of The Crazy Canucks podcast.
On Tuesday February 17th we’ll be heading to The Score on Davie for brews, banter, and to watch the Canucks take on the Flames on their big 70 inch screen.
The puck drops at 6:30pm so we’ll be there shortly before. Feel free to stop by and say hi if you’re in the neighbourhood, then kick back and catch the game with us in this super-comfortable sports bar (with wifi) [Google Map].
I’m not 100% sure I’ll be able to join my cohosts, but I’ll be in Vancouver so I’ll do my best. And if so, I really hope to meet some readers/listeners there. Shared misery and/or euphoria are some of the best things about watching a hockey game.
Plus, I know how much you all want to give me free beers…
Everyone gathered this evening for a quick episode where we discuss Luongo’s early November shutout streak, the third jersey, the Canucks making their film debut, and some making their debut in Manhattan. Third jersey talks, and a whole lot of Wellwood appreciation round out this edition of The Crazy Canucks.
Warning to Leafs fans: There’s a point in the show where I was trying to defend your honour (truly!) but that effort went a bit south when I sorta likened the flood of your jerseys onto the streets of Vancouver last Saturday to some sort of gay pride parade. (whoops…)
P.S. Incidentally I also spent a few minutes on this episode of The Rink Podcast last week, hosted by James (of Jerseys and Hockey Love) and Tom (of AOL Fanhouse). Their podcast is a great show covering the NHL in general, which I suggest everyone check out sometime.
The Crazy Canucks had a small gap in our podcasts this month (John is our mighty producer, and he’s been recovering from some dark & mysterious illness) but a new episode is now up. Check it out.
In addition to hockey talk, we were also pondering TCC sitings around Vancouver and the photo here made my day. That’s J.J. and DaveO from our crew, plus Richard Loat (of Facebook) in the middle.
“I just passed you on a bus!”
I’m not sure, but I think she sounded a bit scared. (And god knows, I am…)
We’re back. Season three of TCC kicks off with a quick gathering of the crew to has out what to expect for the coming season as well as some cool things going on with each of our various projects. We take a look back as who we’ve lost, the new faces (that we kinda think we know something about but don’t know half as much as we’d like), hash out the who does what for TV and radio play-by-play, and take assignments for new names of the team for show and tell later.
Listen to the show at TCC or just pop it into iTunes. There’s a lot more news as well, so Canucks fans be sure to listen. Also check out J.J.‘s new site CanucksHockeyBlog.com (no more blogspot) where he’s preparing to give away two tickets to the September 23rd preseason game against the Oilers.
The five of us will all be attending that night as well, so maybe we’ll get a chance to pelt the winner with popcorn.
Another episode of The Crazy Canucks is out. From the show notes:
In this special episode, J.J. and Alanah take control of the podcast to interview Shanel Pratap from CBC Vancouver. He does the sports for the noon news hour and weekend sports anchor on the CBC. Shanel also spent four days at Canucks training camp in Victoria, B.C. Our crew chats with him, gets inside his head a little, and look ahead at what we can expect by what he saw at training camp.
The truth is, J.J. took over the episode. I mostly hung around and looked pretty (hey, it’s radio—even I can pull that off). But it was great hearing from Shanel - a respected member of the local media and extremely well-informed on the team.
P.S. Expect two more short episodes of The Crazy Canucks —with more interviews—to come out in the next 5 days. Time we all get pumped up for the new season… even if the damn team is going down like flies every time we turn on the news.
Though there were a few summer episodes, a new season officially kicks off at The Crazy Canucks podcast this week, with a small collection of segments we recorded last week and on Monday night. It runs about 25 minutes and it can be downloaded or listened to on a player at the TCC blog:
Hockey is back! Well, we’re almost there, but the puck is dropping in pre-season action all around the NHL, and September 17, 2007 is when it started for the Canucks.
This episode ended up being a mix of content, mostly due to technical difficulties in the recording process. Everyone gathers online to discuss more of the jersey debate, but this is probably the last we’ll really hammer this topic. Then Dave and John hang out for a brief chit chat before the first game against Anaheim, and Rebecca ends this episode with a report on going to the game.
