Season 1, Episode 5: Man to Man

Download here: Man to Man

Guess what day it is, guess what day it is? Not Sunday, unfortunately; we’re a little behind because one-half of the Hockeyfact team spent the weekend in Vegas for Frozen Fury, preseason games hosted by the LA Kings. It was just as ridiculous and magical as you think.

So it’s not Sunday, and we’re late, but it is Hump Day! (Are you envisioning camels? Good). And it’s October, finally, thank god. Did you guys watch the Hawks raise their banner last night? Did you all cry all the tears?


In this episode of Hockeyfact, you will find:


Hockey Book Club:

Recs from Carol

Recs from Erin

Recs from Zoe

the walls kept tumbling down in the city that we loved

His Story is Not a Love Story

to want; desire; long for

Well, Why Not

This is a Goodbye and a Welcome Home

the end of missing someone




Also, I don’t know if you guys are going to be able to handle this, because I definitely can’t, but Hockeyfact interviewed ice_hot_13, in which we talk about fandom, her cult, and how she writes the best soap operas in the entire goddamn world. It is all the glory.


AND AND AND… finally… the entries submitted to the 60-second challenge. Guys, you are fabulous and amazing, and we are so happy with you, so proud of you, so much more educated about all the teams, and so damn amused.

Thanks to Charlie (who is optimistic about the Preds), to Bestliar (who is not optimistic about the Preds), Savanna (what a Boston girl!), Susan (the Hawks, ’nuff said), Carol (who glorifies in how bad the Avs were last season, says how good they could be, and talks about Patrick Roy and Erik Johnson), Kylie (she has a fuck-awesome accent, she tells us all about the Kings!), Ceej (and more Kings! LISTEN TO HOW FAST SHE TALKS), more Carol (and the Blue Jackets!), Not-Our-Abbie (and the Flyers–fucking Claude and his fucking finger, and Danny Briere to the Habs, sadness forever), merisunshine36 (in English and en francais! All the sarcasm, love love love), and finally Bestliar (once more, with the Wild, though mostly, maybe, Ryan Suter).

(Also please note: These challenges were originally recorded several days ago, so please forgive any information they contain that isn’t true anymore or any jokes that current events have now made questionable.)

Everyone say thanks to Erin for her awesome commentary from a car in front of a bar on karaoke night.



In case you don’t remember, it’s OCTOBER. Go watch some hockey, then tell us about it. Remember, we’re always looking for contributions of all sorts. Let us know what you want to see, what you want us to talk about, what you want to talk about with us.

be good,

  1. Weren’t they GREAT? We need to do more audience-participation stuff, because you guys are hilarious. (And knowledgeable!)


  2. this was delightful! I am sorry for sending you a minute of me saying RYAN SUTER over and over, but Carol encouraged this, and also: RYAN SUTER. I am totally justified in my analysis.

    Listening to the interview with icehot13 was really cool!
