No game week post this week, but I figured that I'd point out what I saw on BTN+ on Friday (and saw off-and-on on Twitter on Saturday):
That's all for now. Game week posts return next week for the trip up north. Keep living the #nonyikes life.
Still have not seen the Jones penalty from Saturday. Doubt we ever will. Makes me long for the days of the Mike Kemp Show.
I thought the Sullivan penalty was questionable. To be honest, the kneeing rule is constantly (and consistently) being misapplied. The art of the hip check is vinishing (if not already gone). I had no call on Sullivan.
However, Stewart should've gotten the gate for his hit. Clearly from behind. Clearly a dangerous hit. Honestly, I think the officials overthought the situation: having already kicked two Mavericks out - one controversially - I think he bailed on the third, and got it all wrong.
Saville has been great. Aside from the save on Luczynski, he hasn't had to make highlight reel saves. But that is his style. He is calm, cool, collected. Not flashy. Let's be honest: that second period save was a desperation effort... and lucky. Add Saville and his demeanor to the #nonyikes notes.
I believe I have most (if not all) of the archive from the Mike Kemp Show.
I also might have some game films of games from that same era.
It would be really cool if you started a YouTube channel and posted those (no pressure at all).
There are so many new fans who have only followed the program the past decade or so.
I really got a lot out of those shows. It is hard to gain insights into a coach's mindset and philosophy unless you get a chance to hear them speak.
The ability to pull up those videos of Coach Kemp and Terry Leahy on TKN back in the day was incredibly helpful when discussing the team online.
I think historical context is important for a program, and the video of those shows captured one of my favorite eras in UNO Hockey history. :-)
Not sure I have the means to do that. Might need a nerd's help. But willing.
Chris, years ago you made me discs of the show, which I still have. I don’t know who has legal rights as far as posting them anywhere, and I don’t want to get anyone in trouble
Of course I would need to find them. Most computers losing their built in CD/DVD made me box a lot of my music and videos up.
I am the legal rights holder of the Mike Kemp Show (as far as the UNO-TV/TKN production goes).
