The Blue N’ White Tonight Podcast
Season 1 – Episode 10
In Episode 10, we were joined by former Toronto Maple Leafs captain Rick Vaive. The stories were pure gold as he talked about former teammates such as Darryl Sittler, Wendel Clark, Mike Palmateer, Bob McGill and Steve Thomas. His reaction to clips taken from our show when former roommate Greg Terrion was on the show were priceless! He also shared tales of turning pro at the age of 19, his reluctance to accept the Leaf captaincy, and his reaction to a clip of him scoring his 50th goal for the first time.
What you didn’t hear last week was a 28-minute section that we were forced to cut out due to time constraints. What does a former Leafs captain think about the current state of the organization that he spent his best years as a pro with? Would last year’s fiasco which included the infamous “Salutegate” and the complete implosion of the team have happened on his watch? Get the answers to those questions and more in Episode 10 right here…
On Episode 11, we’ll be joined by our first American guest and his story is truly fascinating. You may have first heard him as a regular caller on AM640’s post-game show called “Leafs Talk” (now known as “After The Horn”) where he offered his unique opinions on the team to host Andy Frost. Ten years later, in 2007, he joined Hockeybuzz.com as a featured Leafs blogger. Today, he has over 8000 Twitter followers who follow his columns and podcast at Hockeybuzz. We are of course talking about “Mike in Buffalo” aka… Mike Augello!
Also, as you know, we have been teasing the idea of a “BNWT Live” show where we would take the show on the road and record in front of an audience! Well, the stage is set and so is the date! In next week’s show, the official announcement will be made and you will be able to answer the question: What do the Blue N’ White Tonight Podcast and Santa Claus have in common?
