September is HERE!
That means that NHL camps are just about to start, the weather is beginning to turn around and Pumpkin Spice is about to be everywhere and in every product.
With hockey just about back, we are going to be cranking up our coverage and it starts with Episode 5!
This week, we sat down with Former AHL Defenseman Steve Wood, whom I have known for 5 years now. Steve played in the Flyers organization and eventually wound up in Bridgeport for 12 games playing for Jack Capuano. You think that I would know Steve through my time covering hockey, but no – we met in Florida which you’ll hear about in the interview.
Steve tells us what life is like as a professional athlete, what it’s like to come up through the high school and prep school ranks and eventually the collegiate level as well. He references a letter he wrote when he was 7 years old and what it’s like to follow your dreams. We then talk about his latest venture, a program called Go Beyond the Ice. It’s probably the most in depth interview to date and is chock full of stories.
We also continue to look at all the Isles Meetup groups on the heels of Episode 4 when we sat down with Isles Meetup Charlotte, this time we sit with Kevin Carney of Isles Meetup Tampa (@islesmeetup_tpa).
Kevin is just starting out his group down in Tampa but goes into his former life on Long Island (New Jersey, and Charlotte) and how he came to know Mike from Islesmeetup_CLT, his Islanders fandom and what his plans are for the group. Be sure to check that out as well.
As always, we take your twitter questions again as well!
Thanks as always and we’ll see you in Episode 6!
