Another week and we're a little bit closer to making this whole thing work. The live stream went off without a hitch this week and we managed to record the podcast, albeit not the way we had planned. This time, it was more of a brain fart on Shredder's part but there IS a podcast this week.
Episode 6 finds us half dead from various illnesses but there was NO WAY we weren't going to produce this week. Stooli and Russell are fresh off a night with Metallica and their concert review gets the show off to a rockin' start. Then Russell sings the praise of a new band from Winnipeg he caught over the weekend called Domenica (www.domenica.ca). When did this become a music podcast?
Fear not, there is Sens hockey to be heard this week. We cover both their games from the past 7 days:
Sens 2 - Tampa 5
Atlanta 3 - Sens 1
A couple more losses that may normally cause concern but we're gonna say that they had a lot to do with the injuries to Spezz and A-train. Not to say there weren't some things that had us staring blankly at our TV screens, namely more slow starts and the lack of anyone stepping up to fill in for Spezza. Some feel our wrath while others are praised. Anyone else sick of Tampa yet?
In the Open Ice segment we discuss Eugene's attempt at reclaiming his moolah from Dany Doucher, which leads into an epic rant between Stooli and Shredder that may take some time to make any sense out of, the disappointing play of Kovalev and Cheechoo, the missing link on Ottawa's defense and the massive suspension handed out by the OHL this week. Stooli's news, e-mails, Tylenol and chuckles. What else could you want from a podcast?
We felt much better about the show this week. We think we have a pretty good handle now on how to balance the live video feed and the podcast. It felt much more comfortable and smooth this time around and we're sure it's just going to get better and better and if we can ever get all the gear to work properly, there will be no stopping us! Once again, we want to say thanks to all of you for your patience as we learn to master this new endeavour.
Master? Master! Obey your master! Yeah yeahhhhhhhhYAH!
