Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is say goodbye to something you love doing.
For Wassel, that new beginning is a new podcast with The Hockey Writers. Chris was kind enough to tell us a little bit about his new program as well as what it was like to say goodbye to The Hockey Program podcast.
PH: After several seasons, your radio show on Blog Talk radio, the Hockey Program, has come to an end. What was that feeling like for you?
CW: Honestly, it was tough. When you do something for any length of time routinely over a period of several years, it feels a little strange saying goodbye. We did catch some people a bit off guard but honestly this was something for the best. The time had come to put this chapter to bed so that we could move on to bigger and better things.
Ironically the CBA negotiations or lack of good negotiations made this an even easier decision. Sometimes, an external force really does make it easier.
Greg was kind enough to tell us about how he got into hockey, how he got into covering hockey as well as his thoughts on the future of blogging.
PH How did you get into hockey?:
GT: Growing up, I tuned into Hockey Night in Canada every Saturday and watched my heroes take to the ice. I spent a lot of time at the rink, whether it was playing, coaching, refing or simply watching various levels of hockey. My original love for the game began after taking in OHL hockey as a kid growing up in Ontario.
PH: Growing up, who was your favorite team/player? Why?
GT: I grew up religiously following the Toronto Maple Leafs, although I have always kept an eye on other teams around the league. I claim to have a favourite player, but I enjoy watching Luke Schenn.
