My Appearance on Team 990 - Pissing Off Habs Fans

RadioI appeared on Montreal's only English sports radio station tonight, The Team 990. The show is called Game Points and they had me on following their discussion about my blog last week.

It's not easy being cocky when your team hasn't played a playoff game in five years but I think I pulled it off. Have a listen and tell me what you think.

Nicely done. Loved the final "Go Leafs Go". You did us proud, brother.

Ugh. That was gross.

Haha. Good job, Mike! Great to have you on!

And I look forward to our bet!

Sounded a bit like Fredie P. Good work. I liked the "we will win before you" statement. Put it on the line.

Go Leafs Go

I was hoping you'd close with "Go Leafs Go". Well played.

Mike from Lowville

Yes Patrick, Mike sounded alot like Fred.....remember his prediction? Mike, you failed the cocky bit also. More humble than Howard.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

It's tough to be cocky when you're sitting last in the conference.

I'm good with this segment, you know...., not being a radio guy and all.

Well done Mike.

Very friendly discussion with the crew from Team 990 and yourself. Entertaining and respectful banter. Great bit about Yonge Street festivities. Props on Barilkosphere and the Go Leafs Go.

Can't wait to hear what the bet is about.

I know the Habs will win more playoff games that the Leafs.

How come no use of my wonderful phrases in the mother toungue of QC?

Go Habs Go

Right on. Go Habs go. I didn't like that thing. I'm a Habs fan.

I can't believe you bet they wouldn't win one game...

Still...I love the Barba Papa banner. Clickitty-click.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

Going into this bit, I knew 3 things...
1. I was going to use the word "Barilkosphere"
2. I was going to mention ALL HEART
3. I was going to close with "Go Leafs Go"

Mission accomplished.

I haven't listened to it yet, but if you ended with "Go Leafs Go", I can't see how it is anything less than perfect. :)
