The latest instalments of Hockey! with me… likely will air during this weekends Victoria Royals WHL hockey broadcasts on the Zone.

#51 for the Calgary Flames is Roman Horak.  Horak played his junior hockey in the “dub” for the Chilliwack Bruins.  Bruins were a WHL expansion team that played only 5 season in Fraser Valley.  This year… they are our team, the Victoria Royals… so that makes Horak an alumni of our team.  Neat.

I talk to Roman about how awesome it is to be in the NHL.

In episode 5, Suicide Box, I hang out at ice level to record the sounds of the game… I capture a great exchange between Timmy T and the Edmonton Oil-Kings.

I love hockey.

Go with yourself.

Dion Phaneuf was traded to The Zone @ 91-3

Victoria: Veteran Zone presenter Jeremy Baker was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs early this morning in a blockbuster three way trade that also involved the Calgary Flames.  Listen for Dion Phanuef on The Zone Afternoon Show Monday.

“It was definitely a shock, but I’m very excited about going to Victoria and being a Zoner,” said Phaneuf.

“It’s a cliche. If Wayne Gretzky can get traded anyone can get traded. I was very surprised, but on the other hand I’m very excited to be going to the 14th largest radio market in the Canada.”

The shakeup comes following a loss to the Vancouver Canucks Saturday night to extend the team’s winless streak to six games, but Leafs GM Brian Burke said that “these pieces were in place prior to yesterday.”

“[Baker] is a warrior. He talks a lot,” explained Burke. “He presents music on the radio and I want players who play the game hard, but also some radio DJs to kinda shake things up in the East.”

A 6′, 180 pound Coquitlam native, Baker was drafted by the Zone in 2003.  He says he was surprised by the trade but is hoping that he can do his part to turn around the struggling Leafs.

“I haven’t laced up since my days playing Midget “C” hockey in Coquitlam, but coach (Ron Wilson) said he expects me to play on the second defensive pairing Tuesday against the Devils.”

“I have a lot of respect for JB, but this is part of the business,” Zone Program Director Sara P said. ”It happens at times, and it’s happened here.’

”Jeremy is certainly a good talker, but we’re getting a big, hard shooting defenseman in return.  He will really lock down the competitive afternoon drive time in Victoria for the Zone.”

The Victoria radio division is one of Canada’s most competitive with the Zone trailing Kool FM in the ratings and the final playoff spot and many share points behind perennial ratings dominator The Q!

Q! Afternoon show host Ryan Awram was reported as saying, “Dion might be a good hockey player, but if he presents modern rock like he played defense on The Flames, I don’t think Kirk (Mason) and I are too worried.”

Media reports say that program director Sara Parker is not done yet with the Zone’s onair line up.

She is expected to deal half of the Zone’s morning line to make cap space for Phaneuf’s 6.5 million dollar contract over 4 years.  Rumours have Jason Lamb shipping off to Edmonton for Sheldon Souray or a block buster proposal that sees Dylan BigD Willows and Rozie Amos plus half the promotions department to Atlanta for Ilya Kovalchuk.  Expect more of this story to develop as the March 3rd trade deadline approaches.

That is a picture of Corj and I after Jamie and Allie’s Halloween party.  I had a good time, all things considered.  Everyone from The Zone went to what looked like a rager at Katie and Adrian’s, but Corj and I had been invited to her good friends some time earlier so we went there.  To compound my poutyness (Mozilla says Poutyness is not a real word… silly Mozilla)… I drove and stayed stubbornly sober.  It was a real, “Dear Diary, Why does God hate me…” sorta moment.  But truth be told, I had a good time.  Jamie’s friends are real rippers.  I don’t party with them very ofter, but each time is a good time.

I watched this tiny girl they call “Pizzle” dominate the beer bongs.

She is the girl standing up.  She slayed the bong so fast, that by the time I got my camera ready for a pic she was saying between foam burps, “I win.”

I am having a Daddy Daycare night tonight.  Just finished watching a pretty good game between the Flames and Kings.  Entertaining.  I was hoping the Kings would edge out the Flames as that would be good for the ‘nucks… but  the Flames held on.  Fun to watch, so I’m not complaining.

I am so tuckered out.  Coral and I went wandering earlier today.  We left our place at 2PM and walked down to Rona for a hammer tack.  The wicked machine lets me “hammer” staples into telephone poles.  Then I took her to the West Bay Walkway.  She had never been and it is a glorious fall walk.  We regretted not bringing the camera.  next time.

Then on the journey home we began putting up posters.  Then after we got home and put Maddy down for a nap, I went back out and put up even more posters.  I have almost tacked up my first 200 posters and it seem that I have barely dented the neighbourhoods.  A few in West Bay, a few around the High school, a few around Craigflower/Tillicum and a few on Rock Heights.  By the time it was all down, it was 7PM… and dogs is tired…

Coral went out with her girlfriend and I am home listening to music and surfing the net. Saw this video… made me LOL.

Reminds me why I am not a big city DJ.  These guys out of Montreal made the ultimate prank on Sarah Palin.  These radio stars form Montreal pretend to be the French President.

Now this is how you make some publicity for your radio show.  I should take some notes.

The story is all over the press.  Like here on the Ceeb.

and over here from WaPo!

The only thing more fun than listening to the prank call is ready the CBC comment board… where does this ignorant people come from?  wow.  If I worked at the CBC I would be so sad.  it would seem my audience would be all mentally deficient… then I would think, “Am I mentally deficient to attract all these people to my website?”

yeesh… ti was just a joke… and in Sarah Palin’s defense… she handled herself alright considering she thought it was the French President and he was asking bizarre questions.  She stayed polite at all times and tried to steer the conversation back to more positive territory.  But then you read what people write and its’ like WTF?

She should have figured it out and you know some poor PR flak is getting her ass handed to her right now.  But in the end, it was funny.

Some person on the CBC was saying that if they had pranked Obama it would have been a hate crime.  Hardly… Obama would have likely picked up on it way sooner and maybe even had some fun with it.  He’s a funny guy (actually, McCain is a funny guy too… they should pranked him).  That, and generally, people smart enough to pull off such an epic prank, wouldn’t target Obama because they like him.

Here is the kicker from the WaPo story: Obama’s campaign spokesman Robert Gibbs, commenting on the prank, said: “I’m glad we check out our calls before we hand the phone to Barack Obama.”

BAAAZING!

Now… you want to see who has the keys to the planet?  this shit is spooky.

This one is from Al Jazeera, so yeah… but an interesting view non the less.

Yikes, and these people have the right to vote!  and the right to bare arms!  both of them!  at the same time!
