A quick aside about Puck Rock —I’ve got some cool things lined up for this, some obvious and some not. There’s no real timetable for when I’ll have these posts but I’ll try to make it fairly regular. If you have any suggestions for players or personalities that would be good for Puck Rock, leave it in the comments.
I think it’s appropriate that we kick off the initial Puck Rock Q&A with one of the most popular hockey personalities in the US: ESPN’s John Buccigross. Not only is Buccigross one of the most dedicated hockey supporters in the national spotlight, he’s also a huge music buff. If you’ve seen him on SportsCenter or the now-defunct NHL 2Night, you’ll know that he drops in as many music references as possible during highlights. He’ll also talk about his favorite songs and bands in his weekly ESPN column almost as much as he discusses his love for Chris Drury.
Want to get on his good side? Ask him about Cam Neely being in the Hall of Fame or why Red Hill Mining Town is the greatest U2 song of all time.
