I just watched the former mightbite's interview with Wendy....he did a great job!! Thanks for coming on to share your views with us, might. I really enjoyed meeting you. My son was bummed that he did not come up to see you too, but he had to be Mr Social and go hang with his teammates from his hockey team. Maybe next time!! Next week's interviewee should be very interesting. Very funny guy. I'm serious, Wendy....good thing Otto can edit the tape. I'll be sure to tell him to mind his language. LOL. No, I'm kidding. He'll be fine. He CAN behave, he normally chooses not to. That's why he'll be a great interview. :)

Thanks to Tim, Wendy, Otto, and Randy for the Game of the Week! Without you guys, I'd have to imagine plays in my head, and you all know that I barely know a slapshot from a wristshot. (really, that's not true, but I don't know that much about hockey) Wendy, enjoy the turkey, after the horrible ham you had to endure today.

There's not much I can add to what has already been said Blake so I'll just wish you, and every one here, a great Thanksgiving.

Well, there is one or two things I could add but I'll save them for New Years.... :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my blogging buddies.

You are all a bunch of Turkeys.

43 jerseys is not nearly enough, make a bigger closet! mitebitemasklesscapedcrusadermonkeyjunglelovingkometfan = huge jersey owning hockey fan.

Its neat putting faces with names.

Wendy, can you spice the interviews up with the old boxers, briefs, thong or commando question right out of the shoot?

Is junglemonkey next week? I bet he is a commando kind of guy.

Oh, and I am thankful that we don't have to put up with this garbage in Fort Wayne.....


Very sad for a league looking for a better image.

Is "commando" what I'm thinking you mean? As in the male version of a Sharon Stone?

Nah, haven't asked JM yet. I may at some point, though considering how squeamish bloggers are proving to be, I'd probably be wasting my time. That being said, I'm interviewing Deuce this weekend. Not only is he not a chicken, he works for Fed-Ex. So, you know, that means he can survive plane crashes, being deserted on tropical islands, and cutting his own tooth out with an ice skate. :D

Yes, the sharon stone

Mitebite, err.. Batman, whenever I'm on WANE I always ask people to remember that the camera adds 10 pounds and there are five focused on me at one time.

Blake thank you for a great job!!! Blueline Baby thanks to you for watching us on the Game of the Week and all the fans that express your interest to us as we really like the feedback!! Oh and Blueline when are you going to do an interview?????????? Maybe Wendy can get Paul Picard to do an interview so we could watch her tear him up!!

Thu, 11/26/2009 - 5:03pm

Good to hear from you chuckitt.

Blake Sebring
Thu, 11/26/2009 - 5:10pm

Amen. Welcome back Chuckitt!

Thu, 11/26/2009 - 6:18pm

That's great Michael. I'll touch base with you soon, one way or another. :)

Don't worry FMM. Actually, I've been looking up some info on the AIHL, and it's facinating stuff. If your friend hasn't told you much about it, I hope you won't mind if I bring it up and mention a few key aspects.

As for BLB, she'll get her turn. She's already agreed, so she's stuck. ;) As things stand right now, though, I'm planning for her son to go first. Paul Picard? Yeah, right. Maybe if I can perfect that spell that turns him back into a rat. The physical form of one, that is. :P

Great to have you back, Chuckitt! Amen on the flu. I know where you are coming from there.

Tim, I am in....gloves off, all topics open. Well, I might have to cut some but I'm pretty hard to embarass. I'm stoked to do mine, but I'm letting the kid go first. He's less patient than me. And cuter. :) And Wendy, tomorrow I'll get Jungle Monkey's info for you. I have him in my section, so I think I can sweet talk it out of him. I will pout if I have to, and crying is a last resort.....yep, I'd go there to get what I wanted!! LOL I think JM would be the most explosive interview EVER. Um, for mine, can we not mention the words Sergei Durdin and garage and cage in the same sentence? Might keep us outta trouble with the FCC. Or the IHL. And definitely with Johnny Law. ;)

Fri, 11/27/2009 - 11:52pm

Ok, let's just start the interview right now, you know my question, which is it?
