From Mick Kern at XM Home Ice:
Twas the night before Game Seven, when all through Home Ice
Not an announcer was stirring, or offering advice
The microphones were hung in the studio with care
In hopes that Eric Gage would take to the air.
The listeners were nestled all sung in their beds
While visions of Cup celebrations danced in their heads
And Blakeley in his news booth, preparing his cast
Looking up all the stories and stats from the past.
When up in CR2 there arose such a clatter
Pogi had called to indulge in some chatter
The lines were all jammed with callers galore
Each one proclaiming the game’s final score.

As you all know, I am a big fan of XM’s Home Ice Channel. The channel produces great content on a daily basis, gets great guests on its shows and has extremely knowledgeable hosts.
With that in mind, I was lucky enough to do an interview with one of the hosts - Mick Kern. Kern took some time to tell us about how he got into hockey, the radio industry and his thoughts on the game in general.

With the expansion of the Internet, along with the development of many hockey-related web sites, fantasy hockey has become extremely popular.
For hockey fans across the globe, it’s the chance to be a GM and show that you have what it takes to win your league by drafting right, making smart moves and learning how to truly manage a roster.
One hockey personality that couldn’t agree more is Rob Higgins, member of the Canadian band Dearly Beloved but to us hockey fans, known for being the fantasy hockey voice on XM Home Ice. Rob was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to talk about how he got his start, the uniqueness and wonder of fantasy hockey, his fantasy surprises and disappointments and of course, his predictions.
