Darren Dreger Talks With Gord Miller And Ray Ferraro

It might not be the most elaborate Dreger Cafe, but TSN broadcasters Gord Miller and Ray Ferraro finally get a chance to sit down with Darren Dreger to talk about when they first worked together and how their friendship has grown immensely since that time. They also share some travel stories and discuss other careers they might have pursued if they didn't get into broadcasting.

Watch the almost 13 minute discussion at TSN (no geo-blocking).

Iginla a Hit in Kandahar

We posted about this last night, but today CalgaryFlames.com provides more details of Jarome Iginla’s trip (along with Jayna Hefford and Marie-Philip Poulin, both members of Canada’s gold medal winning women’s hockey team of 2010) to Afghanistan this week:

The entourage arrived at 10:00 a.m. Kandahar time and stepped off the plane into 38 C temperatures. At that point Iginla became the first active National Hockey League player to pay a visit to troops in the field. The first stop was the outdoor ball hockey rink. It was here that [TSN’s Gord] Miller realized what he had known for a long time—the Flames captain is a special human being.

“He stood on that concrete floor for two hours talking and signing autographs and having his picture taken. Then he played ball hockey for 15 minutes in that heat,” said Miller.

The group attended various functions including a tour of the Task Force Kandahar Headquarters, a commemorative wreath laying and a social barbecue with troops. At the later, many of the troops who had taken photos earlier in the day had printed them for Iginla to sign.

“I know people in Calgary know what kind of person Jarome is. But he was incredible. It underlies the character of the guy,” said Miller. “I can honestly say I have never seen anyone that patient, that kind, with everyone. He asked some great questions. He was unbelievable. He had time for everyone. He just made everyone feel good.”
