Up The Pucks

Google+? Yeah, that too!


 Well, we had to do a Detroit show eventually. Luckily, Wings fan Joe Novak from Keys to the Bus joins us to discuss the Seattle arena pipedream, the trade deadline, and how the Blue Jackets have managed to fall further down the shame spiral. It really is quite the feat. We also discuss the state of the Red Wings and why Joe has a self-imposed ban on himself at Joe Louis Arena. We also play a bunch a great Detroit punk and ska.

This is Joe's record label, Whoa! Records, with releases by P.T. Revenge, The Halifax Notion, & others.

But now, on to the review of the Menzingers' On The Impossible Past.

Howson, Nash & the Blue Jackets: Is THIS the bottom?

Well that could have gone better. You're probably aware of what a disaster this season has been for Columbus, it started shortly after Jeff Carter barricaded himself in his house for a couple days before GM Scott Howson & team captain Rick Nash(they were still buddies then) had to travel to Jersey and convince him to come out of hiding...

The NHL's Cocktease

Let’s be honest and call today what it really was, it was like a hand job after being promised a wonderful and magical night.  Sure it was nice, but it certainly didn’t match the build up that was coming from her (her in this case being GMs).  Today’s trades were better than nothing, but at the 3pm deadline, I was left wanting more.

Instead we got this:
