Section 328 would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Celebrating the joys of family and friends…and lots of booze and football. Speaking of booze, I’m sure there will be a few shower beer reviews and other beverage reviews, due to the family filled day.

The Last Hope, A Female Perspective

by RaleighMonkey •  Nov 19, 2012  •  0 comments

This is my first post and somewhat my last hope for hockey this season. The NHL and NHLPA meet tonight at 7. I feel that this is the last hope for all hockey fans to have any type of season. The question is will the problem be resolved or will the lockout continue? Will more and more fans become alienated from the game they love and will a generation miss out on hockey?

Is this heaven? Nope, its just Induction Night

by Mike Flanagan •  @mflanagan00 •  Nov 14, 2012  •  0 comments

Hurricanes legend Ron FrancisI'm struggling with what to share from Induction night. I wish I could pinpoint a highlight and put something grandiose out there, but the whole night is like a crazy roller coaster full of adrenaline all evening. If you ever have the chance to attend a HHOF induction, it is an event that every true hockey fan should try to attend. If you are an autograph hound, stay home and hang outside the local practice rink. But, if you want to see some of the greats of the game open up and share some really great stories, save up your pennies and make your way to Toronto.*Disclaimer:* Name dropping about to occur. Watch your head...The evening kicks off around 5:30 with all of the guests walking the red carpet. As you make your way through security, you immediately notice all the media and pretty people you see on TV. As you exit the escalator, you are dropped into the middle of possibly the greatest hockey charity auction ever. Among the items open for bidding were a hand painted custom Joe Sakic Gibson guitar, an evening with the 1972 Canadian Summit Series team, and more autographed jerseys than you could deke at. As you looked around, you also begin to notice some familiar faces. We bumped into HHOF'er and Hurricane great Ron Francis as he made his way into the Great Hall. He stopped to say hello and share that this is a lot more relaxed for him than the last time he was here, his induction night 5 years prior. But where do you find most of the game's legends gather?

SiriusXM NHL Studios are where I want to spend the apocolypse

by Mike Flanagan •  @mflanagan00 •  Nov 14, 2012  •  0 comments

When I want to listen to the only sports station that I don't have to hear the drivel that is baseball or Tarheels whatever, I immediately tune to Sirius 207 for SiriusXM NHL radio. The voice of hockey on my daily drive has become Mike Ross (@NHLRossy for the twitter inclined) and I really enjoy his brand of NHL talk. After many discussions via Twitter and email, Mr. Ross invited me to come by the SiriusXM studios while in Toronto for a quick visit and tour. Well, as many of you may have seen, what I thought would be a 10 minute visit and tour turned into a 90 minute hockey discussion, including a 20 minute segment to kick off the 11AM hour called The War Room.Now, if you are like me, you may be thinking that a high powered satellite radio station would have street level studios, lots of marketing, and fancy dancy studios. Well...

O Christmas Beer, O Christmas Beer…

by Derek Roessler •  Nov 14, 2012  •  0 comments

One of my favorite things about a new season is new seasonal beers. For as much as I’m fond of pumpkin beers, the sheer variety of Christmas and Winter brews makes them my favorite batch of seasonal brews. The other day, I was fortunate enough…

This morning, the good people at Sirius/XM NHL Radio were kind enough to host Mike and Leigh Flanagan. Initially the plan was Mike and Leigh would bring breakfast, hang out and listen to the show. Upon arrival, Mike was asked if he was ready to…
