FatBoys reaction.........."I hate hockey and I ain't wasting my time..........."

Haviland was there with friends of mine......(I do not know him) and my buddy told me the story tonight, five minutes before I posted it. They gave Tubby a lot of sh*t when he walked by. It's true if that's what you're asking.

He's not just a regular everyday sports fan though, he's a well-known sports talk radio host.

and he doesn't like hockey, hockey is not popular, and it's august. francesa could've made up a better reason, but he's probably right that it wouldn't be good radio.

i am not surprised. they never talk hockey on wfan and the few who do (Boomer and Steve Somers) talk about the Rangers. He said on the air a while ago that he doesnt follow hockey or doesnt know much about it.

Not the point........but whatever already. Haviland wasn't planned, but Mikey talked to these "tryout for the FAN" contestants how they have to be spontaneous......and he couldn't do it on a local feel good relevant story.

Meh, I always liked Mad Dog better...I can't listen to Francesca. He bores me.

If I want sports talk though I'll listen to Scott Farrell on Sirius. He actually talks about hockey.

And 95% of his audience hates horsey racing and couldn't give 2 sh!ts about golf but he still talks about that garbage.

it's ok that you don't like hockey, but you're only limiting yourself among your audience by ignoring it.

Honestly I know get that golf has a legit audience...but for ESPN and talk radio hosts like Francesca to put golf and horse racing (which is a niche sport at best) ahead of one of the core four sports? It's embarassing. I wish NHL network had offseason coverage.

Have you actually ran down what these people put ahead of hockey? Poker, horse racing, eating, WNBA, golf, tennis! Something tells me that if there was "competitive staring contests." ESPN and sports talk radio hosts would put THAT ahead of hockey as well.
