I spent some time tonight mucking around in the WGR audio vault, and found these recent tidbits.
– Andrew Peters has been bartending at Pearl Street this summer as a fundraiser for the Center for Missing & Exploited Children. For his last gig this past week, he invited along Roy-Z, Paetsch, Mair , Paille and Kaleta to help out and sign autographs and mingle. I would’ve loved to have seen these guys trying to bartend.
– It sounds like the boys are slowly starting to trickle back into town. Paetsch mentioned that he and the guys he’s skating with at the Pepsi Center are now up to 5 weekly on-ice workouts. The same guys mentioned as Peters guest bartenders are the core of the little Sabre skating group, with the addition of Marty “Chatterbox” Biron in net. In addition, we also have Breaking! Timmy! News! Patches reports that Timmy is now back in town and skating with them, and looks to be in the best shape of his career. Which, of course means that Timmy will have a tragic toenail clipper accident at training camp and be out for half the season.
– Not in the WGR audio vault, but still highly informative and entertaining, was this article regarding the Michigan State Pro Hockey Camp. MSU opens its doors for a week to its famous NHL/AHL alumni for a week in August. They spend time with the MSU coaches, working on plays and conditioning. And of course, who shows up at this event? Our very own Ryan Miller, who looks darn good. It looks like the offseason agreed with him, and that he was able to relax and bulk up (and lose a pair of shoes, if the first picture in the camp’s gallery is any indication).
– Also, Michael Phelps hosting SNL could either be the best thing ever or the best trainwreck ever.
