Jon Lajoie

I got a chance to talk with Jon Lajoie of FX’s “The League” and uber YouTube stardom. A guy who nailed the DIY aspect of how to make it. He didn’t do it by figuring out all the marketing tricks as much as he backed it up with an ability to be consistently hilarious. 

I absolutely love “The League”. It’s the show that I laugh the loudest to and it has yet to let me down so this was a treat for me. Probably the interview I was the most nervous in but Jon is such an easy going guy that the nerves faded pretty quick.

Reposting of Audio/Interviews

For some reason the original postings of the Linus Omark and Craig Button interviews stopped working so I reposted them. I hate it when technology overcomplicates itself.

Interview with Linus Omark

This audio is from an interview I had with Linus Omark on November 4th, after the OKC Barons practice in Abbotsford. Quotes from this interview [specifically: “I want to play (in the) NHL and if no one lets me do that then I’m going to go to Europe,”] ended up in the Edmonton Journal, PuckDaddy, The Hockey News, Vancouver Sun among others.

An exasperated yet Linus Omark speaking candidly. In fairness to Omark his words are driven by his passion to play the game at the top level and that is a drive any GM would be happy to see from a player. My takes is that Omark will do whatever it takes to get back to the NHL no matter what team it is with. He is happy to be an Oiler and wants to feel accepted as a part of the time but for now he feels like an outsider and not an important part of the team.

5 Minutes with TSN’s Craig Button

I had a few minutes with Craig Button on Friday night at the World Junior A Challenge to ask his opinion on a couple of the more interesting storylines in the NHL this past week. I will take some time later tonight to write out a post on some of what was talked about. Button has built a reputation as an approachable and intelligent guy and he lived up to both.

Oscar Dansk

Oscar Dansk

A snapshot of Oscar Dansk from the World Junior A Challenge this past week. Dansk stood out sharply amongst the other players at the tourney. The tall goalie has the tools and the mentality to be a first round pick this coming June. His consistency, puckhandling, positioning, quickness both low to high and laterally are astounding.
