It was great to catch up with Dirk Hembroff and discuss many things, but one of the funnier moments was all of us discussing the strangest places we listened to Dirk call a Huskies game, from a wedding in Scotland to deer camp while the Huskies were in Alaska (only a couple hours sleep). The topic all started when we talked about no crowd noise and one of the biggest blunders I’d ever seen in person by Nick Punto of the Minnesota Twins. It was the last ever baseball game at the Metrodome, where we happen to be seated in obstructed view seats listing to MTU play LSSU.
There were a couple segments that were exclusive to Patrons only. One tangent about pets including my new Husky, Molly (Check out that collar!):
We also had our third monthly Zoom Chat exclusively for our Patrons. This month we were joined by the team Captains, Alec Broetzman, Trenton Bliss and Eric Gotz. If you would like to enjoy our extra content including early access to extended editions of the podcast and our zoom chats (and hopefully I will find time to get the recruiting podcast going), please check out our Patreon site at patreon.com/techhockeyguide At our lowest level of just $2/month you’ll get access to the zoom chat.
