EftRoU 98a: hockey can be entertaining…

As most of you know I am a big fan of hockey and I watch the Avalanche on TV when ever I can find the time. I used to go to at least 6 games a year back in the day until it just became to cost prohibitive for me and The Moderator. We love watching hockey and find it to be a great form of entertainment.

Hockey All Star Game

So for those of you out there that are not hockey fans or have not every really watched hockey before this is my plea to say, “You got to give it a chance!” This weekend January 28-30, 2011 you can check out the All Star game on Versus, check your local listings for time and channel.

In an effort to help introduce the EftRoU audience to this years NHL All Stars I invent my friend Tapeleg from the Rink Podcast. That’s right I said Tapeleg, from www.rinkpodcast.com. Tapeleg and I record a special episode to discuss what we think of hockey as a whole as well as the new twist that the NHL has put on this year’s All Star game.

Listen in and then let us know if we made you into a hockey fan or at least curious about the game. Or if you’re already a fan let us know what you think of this years All Star game format.
