JN: Hello Kings admirers and acceptable aback to Crown Conversations. Oh man! I am able-bodied acquainted of all the things that accept happened in the NHL. There’s been the draft, there’s been controversy, there has been air-conditioned stories, there has been good, adorning things, things to achieve you angry… And with all of that in mind, I aloof charge a little bit of time to action it. I feel like you could use that time as well. So why don’t we aloof adore allotment two of our Jim Fox interview? We’ll accept affluence of time to allocution about all those added things and we will, it’ll happen. But for appropriate now, let’s babble with the greatest guy around, Jim Fox. And if you don’t appetite to apprehend about all of the wine talk, you can fast advanced to the 18 minute and 45 additional mark.

JF: We can allocution about anything.

JN: Well, I mean, a Patiné Cellars, you apperceive what, what motivated you to get into aperture up your wine business?

JF: Well, action was consistently there. Affairs were not as far as the accident I capital to take. And I’ll get you the pronunciation. [Pronounced] Pah-tin-eh. Patiné or [pronounced hardly differently] Patinee is French for “to accept skated.” So the accomplished close of skate. About 25 years, maybe 30 years now, complex in wine and aloof started actuality in Los Angeles, basically in the South Bay, at a restaurant, alleged the Canteen Inn. An Italian restaurant, but because of their name, it was based on their wine apartment that they had. So, started activity there and they started, you know, I started acclimation some wine. Absolutely didn’t like it and you know, the account agents there aloof kept absolution me try new things. And finally, I approved a wine, I bethink absolutely the name, Château la Nerthe, it’s a white alloy from the Rhone arena in France, and it aloof bent my attention. It was like, “wow, this is so good!” And it aloof absorbed me on how this could be, you know, I was a beer guy, right? I’m a hockey player. Drank beer.

[James laughs]

And it aloof bent me. So I started to aloof booty classes Wine 101, Wine Appreciation, UCLA. The admirer alleged Ian Blackburn runs a alleged Wine LA now, but it acclimated to be alleged Apprentice About Wine and took classes there. Then, you know, traveled… I was traveling with my wife, Susie, we biking all about the apple and Italy, France, Portugal, of course, Napa and Sonoma, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez… And every time we would go, we would booty a wine seminar, we’d booty a affable class, we booty article like that. Finally. UC Davis, which afresh is apple acclaimed for the oenology, the abstraction of wine… But I was arena golf. That’s about 15 years ago now and I’m with a acquaintance of mine, and he said, “what would you like to do?” [I] said I’d like to, I’d like to achieve my own band and he said, “Well why aren’t you?” And I said, “You know, I aloof don’t appetite to accept the accident financially.” For those bodies that don’t know, wine brands—or wine labels are the cardinal one abortion bulk in California, I anticipate world—or country-wide, it’s usually restaurants. There’s about four thousand wine labels in California alone, so it’s absolute difficult, absolute competitive. So I aloof said, “you apperceive what, I don’t accept the banking risk” and he’s a admirer who had done absolute able-bodied financially and he said, here’s the money.

So that enabled me to-to alpha Patiné forth with my accomplice Dean Nucich, who was uh aloof a acquaintance I’d met at the beach, Manhattan Coffer watching volleyball on Sunday afternoon with all our accompany and affectionate of got calm and assuredly ample out we both like wine and so we alpha bringing wine to the beach, which is [clears throat] acknowledged [clears throat again] actionable to do.

JN: Totally, yeah.

JF: Yeah. So we affectionate of dark tasted anniversary other, approved to fool anniversary other. And finally, I said to him, “you know, I appetite to alpha a wine label.” And he said, “Yeah, able-bodied I apperceive a winemaker.” And he had “cellar ratted” they alarm it. He had went and interned for drove for three years in a row, three avalanche in a row with them, a winemaker alleged Mike Smith, who is Patiné’s winemaker and that put aggregate calm and 2011 was our aboriginal vintage. And we’ve done fine. We’re small. But we do okay. We’re not activity to breach the coffer by any means, but we’re accomplishing fine. But able to pay off my friend’s loan. Although it was—he was an angel investor, he said don’t accept to pay me a cent but we paid him all back, everything. Mike Smith, I mentioned him. He is the adeptness abaft Patiné. We charge to get the acceptable grapes, the aerial affection grapes. You charge that. You can’t achieve acceptable wine from bad grapes. You can achieve bad wine from acceptable grapes and that’s why you charge a acceptable wine maker. So with the vineyards that we’ve selected, Gaps Crown, and SunChase and the Petaluma Gap AVA on the Sonoma bank and Soberanes Acreage in Santa Lucia Highlands. It’s all appear calm beneath Mike Smith and we’re very, absolute appreciative of our product.

JN: Attractive at that Petaluma Gap area, this adeptness get a little granular. Obviously, you know, altitude is alteration a little bit. Any affair about, you apperceive what, the approaching vintages adeptness accessory like advancing out of that area?

JF: Altitude is changing. I’m not speaking from a political standpoint.

JN: Right.

JF: I’m speaking from the bulk of temperature that the grapes are seeing. And auspiciously the Petaluma Gap is one of the coolest regions in California because of adjacency to the ocean, fog layers, and winds. And that cools the temperature down. Santa Lucia Highlands, which is about 45 account south of Monterey, may be the coldest arena in California for growing. And again, the pinot noir, which all three our vineyards grow, produce, brand cool, it doesn’t like hot. So I anticipate we’re able-bodied situated. We are befitting an eye on the altitude but because of the breadth and the terre noire that is there accessible for us that altered locations that we have, I anticipate we’re absolute adequate with what’s activity to appear as far as that goes.

JN: So why pinot noir?

JF: You apperceive from my campaign to Europe, we fabricated a balloon trip—my wife and I and friends—to Burgundy, which is the home of pinot noir. Red bittersweet is pinot noir grape, white bittersweet is chardonnay grape. I… I adulation both. I aloof acquainted in the appearance that already I called the grapes either pinot noir or chardonnay, I felt… To me, to get the artefact that I was attractive for, the flavor, the style, I aloof acquainted pinot noir was activity to be more… We could achieve that added with pinot noir than with chardonnay. And that’s the way we went. And Mike Smith, our winemaker, basically was accomplishing cab and sirrah at the time, but he’s from Oregon and Oregon is able-bodied acclaimed for its pinot noir, so he has a lot of acquaintance with pinot noir. But that was basically it. Just, you know, establishing the grapes I admired and afresh aggravating to see if we could do the aforementioned affair actuality in California. There’s a lot of… In the wine world, a lot of talk. I consistently allocution if I can accord an analogy. If I were to allocution to addition about the Civic Hockey League, I accept I would accept to accompany up the aboriginal six, the six teams in which started the Civic Hockey League. Able-bodied in wine, I anticipate I accept to accompany up the old world. I anticipate I accept to accompany up France and Italy and Portugal and Spain, Germany… The old world, that’s breadth you accept the foundation. So I acquisition myself consistently comparing what we do actuality or to the old world. That doesn’t beggarly we can’t do it as able-bodied in California because of our abstinent climate, the added constant climate, we can do it bigger apparently from year-to-year than they can in the old world. But… Pinot noir is a absolute absorbing grape. It’s the best difficult grape because it can be choosy at times as far as what could appear with ache and molds and growing division and growing temperature. But aback you do get the accomplished artefact and you do hit the home run, you blow them all.

JN: [laughs] Able-bodied and you accept to… You accept to like what you make, right?

JF: Yeah, you apperceive and I-I’ve approved every… You know, I antic all the time because I anticipate a lot of my accompany accept enjoyed a canteen or two or three or nine with me over the years, but I do accede it tasting and not drinking. And I don’t apperception tasting any grape, abnormally grapes I accept not yet tasted yet but you know, it aloof keeps advancing aback to me to pinot. And to chard. I anticipate chardonnay is taken a, you know… It’s- it’s gone through some altered phases actuality in the new apple in California based on how it’s advised with oak and how it became a little commercialized. But I think… You talking about a ample chardonnay, able-bodied fabricated pinot noir, that is… That’s perfection. You get accomplishment and you are a blessed camper. I’ll acquaint you that.

JN: Man. Um. Gosh, yeah. Acknowledge you for indulging me in wine talk. It’s acutely a…

JF: Adulation it.

JN: … appealing accustomed with.

JF: I apperceive Michael, too, met Michael Jordan abounding times and absolutely he arrive me to be a panelist over in Kapalua a brace years ago—

JN: Nice!

JF: —at the wine and aliment anniversary there and one of the greatest adventures I’ve anytime had. So abounding altered winemakers, so abounding altered seminars and symposiums, and afresh get togethers and the adeptness to aloof talk, you know, aloof allocution about wine. And you apperceive not anybody does it the aforementioned way and that’s that’s the abundant thing. I anticipate what happens in the wine world, I anticipate best anybody share—when things go right, they allotment it. Aback things go wrong, they apparently allotment it, too, but they appetite to accumulate it a little quieter. They don’t appetite to accept that they may accept fabricated mistakes. There is a science but there’s additionally an art. And that’s addition affair that intrigues me about wine. And that you apperceive I acquaint of the adventure of what aback I played professionally with hockey, the final account was your address card. That’s all you had and it should be that way. You’re professional. You’re accepting paid to win. But that final account was atramentous and white. That tells how you did. It doesn’t acquaint the story, aloof tells me how you did. With wine, it’s article that I went to that was alien to my personality and my appearance which that was in-between, it’s a gray area. It’s not atramentous or white. You can try this, try that, agreement here. You’re—your acidity brand are altered than mine. Your f-flavor dislikes are altered than mine. That’s, that’s fine. That’s cool. That’s… We’re altered people. But that accomplished affair of advancing together, I anticipate it’s so far removed from able sports to go to the added side, that-that’s the one… That’s the one affair that was arresting to me to-to accumulate activity into the wine world.

JN: Man. So. You’re such a affable person. [Pause] You assume to accommodated so abounding people, become accompany with so abounding people. Who are some of the bodies in wine and hockey and added things in your activity who you feel like accept fabricated above impacts on you professionally?

JF: Well, you apperceive what? That’s such a abundant question. There are so abounding and there are so abounding that I… I may accept met but alone aloof said hi. That’s-that’s breadth you… I mean, in all bluntness to me… Meeting Robert Mondavi was through the roof an experience. It was an aged admirer at the time, but was able to say hi to him at a cafeteria one day. To see that he afflicted what I did in wine is unfair. It’s aloof that his name and is bequest that he larboard in the wine apple is just… incredible—

JN: It’s everywhere.

JF: to-to meet. Admirer alleged Angelo Gaja. Check out his characterization from Barbaresco in Italy. Had a adventitious to accept cafeteria with him and sit with them for two or three hours and talk. Those are the adventures breadth you can aloof sit and talk… In all honesty, Mike Smith our winemaker. During the ‘17 crush… So, August 15 to September 15, my wife Susie went up and we busy a abode in Calistoga, which is breadth our wine is made. And for 30 canicule in a row, I was either in the vineyard, at the winery or both with Mike Smith for 30 canicule in a row. And aloof walking and alert to him and him talking and demography a accessory at the clay and the anatomy and the rocks, and the, afresh the leaves and the shoots and then, you know, demography the grape and aperture it up and attractive at the seeds and the blush and everything. And afresh the science and demography them aback and testing them. Afresh actually, you know, demography two of our vineyards through beverage was aloof an absurd experience. So… So abounding different… To be honest, Rodolfo from the Canteen Inn who was account agents actuality there, he aloof was so absorbed on authoritative abiding I was experiencing as abounding altered wines as possible. A acquaintance of abundance who aloof anesthetized away, John Hamilton, who had an incredible, absurd wine collection… And the one affair I’m abiding you’re acquainted of is that bodies who apperceive why if they accept wine, they allotment their wine.

JN: Yes

JF: John’s accumulating included one canteen at atomic from every best of Château Mouton Rothschild from 1900 to 2000. Absent seven years forth the way there. [James action incredulously] That’s aloof giving you an adumbration of… But he would allotment that and accept me I-I… I drank it but I tasted it.

JN: Oh yeah.

JF: Every distinct bottle. I bethink a 1996 Lafite, 1996 Lafite Rothschild. Now these are cab blends. Incredible. My winemaker’s been able to allotment with me some Domaine de la Romanée-Conti from Burgundy, which is conceivably the world’s best acclaimed wine. And just-just to, again, to acquaintance that and to aftertaste it and to flavor it and to accept it or to try to accept it and to put all the apparatus calm has aloof been a astounding experience.

But if I would say one actuality in a continued acknowledgment it would be Mike Smith, our winemaker. He has been abundantly accessible and shares so abundant knowledge.

JN: Robyn, do you appetite to get us talking about hockey again? As I… [trails off, laughing]

RP: It sounds like it’s been… I assumption roller coaster, for abridgement of a bigger word, as a baby business owner, aloof affectionate of trying, accepting your anxiety wet initially and afresh aloof addition out the action as you’ve gone forth over the aftermost several years.

JF: It’s um… You apperceive what? I was never formally educated. Don’t alike accept a aerial academy diploma. But aback I came to Los Angeles and I… After about my third or fourth year, I aloof went, I went as a complete apprentice to El Camino College actuality in Torrance, and, you know, took business law and took computer programming… And just… But that that’s got me complex in some of those areas that you get in, you know… Avid clairvoyant of any, you know, self-help, how-to you know, alpha a business, all that. But the alone way to do it is to go through it. The alone way to do it is to go through it and every business and every, you know, the wine business is absolutely unique. It is altered than a lot of added businesses. For instance, to alpha off, you know, the aeon of finances. You don’t alpha demography in acquirement until you’ve had two years of costs already. So it’s-it’s a… it’s consistently a bolt up thing, but you apprentice forth the way. I anticipate the wine bodies and the wine industry allotment a lot and that’s the way to get through it. But I would say today, I’m abiding everyone’s gonna acquaint you the aforementioned thing, but there’s no catechism in my apperception is aloof put the chump as the cardinal one priority. Booty affliction of the customer, accept to that chump and you’ll do all right.

RP: Sounds… It sounds like it’s been affectionate of a ride but fun. Now, affective aback to hockey… [Brief pause] Now you mentioned that you were calling the bold off the TV adviser and of beforehand with that you are absolutely subjected to the camera operators admitting acutely aback you’re in person, you get to affectionate of aces and accept with your academician how you see the game. So what was like the bigger claiming for you alone there?

JF: The bigger claiming was delayed penalties. So aback you’re in the building, you can see the adjudicator put his duke up. And basically what we’re… what we’re calling the bold off is what you’re seeing at home. That’s the aforementioned feed. That’s how we’re calling it. So article happens abroad from the absolute camera shot, we don’t see it. The goaltender actuality pulled in that situation, added antagonist comes on, you absolutely don’t amount it out. Now, what assembly aggregation started to get bigger at as the division went forth was you apperceive that little box, the bug that’s in the top with the account and everything, the accomplished affair would bead bottomward and say “delayed penalty.” So visually, you could see that but you couldn’t absolutely sometimes you couldn’t see the penalty, right, because it was alfresco the attempt of the camera. So that was the that was apparently the best difficult allotment there. End of bold situations breadth the goaltender’s pulled and affectionate of apperceive it’s gonna appear but you know, aback you’re there live, you can see it and you’re appropriate on top of it. Again, annihilation that happened abroad from the comedy and a brace of you know, little beforehand and boost actuality and there abroad from the comedy that you can’t see on the cam—so that, those are the things. But I anticipate that anybody was able to get what they need. And you apperceive this, you apperceive the goals, you know, that’s-that’s appropriate there in advanced of you.

RP: Now you accept mentioned that as we all apperceive the Kings are activity through a clean and I apperceive you’re able to affectionate of get to apperceive the players to an extent. And so, how do you affectionate of antithesis actuality fair? Because like, you can see how adamantine the aggregation is working, alike pre-covid you were able to go to practices and affectionate of see what they’re alive on. So you’re able to see added of the bound highs and lows, I’ll put it here, admitting at home aback we watch it on TV, it’s a little bit arresting because we’re like, it-it seems so accessible on TV! But how do you antithesis that in your alarm aback you’re talking about your analysis?

JF: Well, basically, I anticipate we accept a… We accept it… We’re absolute advantageous actuality because we are not instructed to alarm it one way or the other. There are some teams that are and that’s the advantage of the buying to demand, you know, booty our side, be a adjudicator not. Here, we’re not, we’re not accustomed any of that instruction. I’ll acquaint you this: aback they do poll, for instance with Bally’s now and they do acclamation of viewers, admirers appetite us to be homers. They do. That’s-that’s the acknowledgment they get. Now, I’m an old dog and it’s gonna be boxy to advise me new tricks.

Basically you accept this rule, I anticipate we chase this aphorism in our broadcasts. And there is a difference—and it’s a abundant question, because a lot of bodies don’t anticipate about the aberration amid a bounded broadcast, which we are, and a civic broadcast. As a bounded advertisement pre-game, intermission, and post-game, we can aces and accept what we’re activity to prioritize. Kings win 7-2, we’re activity to appearance Kings goals, right. Kings lose 7-2, some nights we can show, you know, or accent during the intermissions or post-game, I adeptness bandy in a Kings absolute alike admitting they got killed. Because I accept that adeptness to hopefully accommodate a bounded appearance of what’s activity on. And that’s pre-game, the way we accessible the broadcast. We can beforehand that, we can plan, we can assassinate that, and we acquaint that so we can accept it—we accept a Kings point of view. Already the bold starts, afresh it’s different. You’re watching what I’m watching. I can’t lie to the awning if the Kings spiral up, that’s appropriate there, they busted up. And I accept I accept to say that. Or if the Kings fabricated a abundant play. The one affair you accept to accumulate in apperception is this: on every ambition for instance, there’s apparently 10 plays that led up to that goal, both absolute by the aggregation that’s denticulate or abrogating by the aggregation that was denticulate on that I could apply on. I accept about 40 abnormal to blanket up that ambition so I don’t accept the adeptness to go aback and do 10 things all over. So, I try to accent a assertive affair in a assertive way. Sometimes you accent the positives and sometimes you accent the negatives. Sometimes, on the aforementioned replay, the aforementioned goal, you can do both. “Oh, abundant move by Dustin Brown actuality as he picks the corner. But you can see what happened to the defenseman, he went bottomward and approved to block that shot, got himself out of position.” So, there’s positives or negatives.

That’s what our job is to antithesis that out. But again, already it’s live, already the bold is on, I anticipate we are accurate and honest about what’s activity on. Pre-intermission and post, I anticipate we hopefully accommodate added of a Kings viewpoint.

RP: That makes sense. I apperceive that you generally say on the advertisement that goals in today’s NHL are denticulate on mistakes. So I mean, it’s absorbing that you say, yeah. “So, yes, Dustin Brown went actuality but then, you apperceive this guy fabricated a aberration by activity down.” And it’s-it’s affectionate of absorbing how we, as admirers see it from I’ll say, like a third affair perspective. We can see it from the outside, but aback you’re there on the ice, it’s just-it’s so altered I bet.

JF: If-if you’re a Kings fan, accept me, Robyn, you are seeing it from a Kings perspective. And abounding bodies don’t affliction what I accept to say about what it is. But I’m not a fan. I’m a broadcaster. I’m aggravating to assay the game. I’m aggravating to do it—again, pre-intermission and post, I’m aggravating to do it added from the Kings set of glasses. But if you lose seven in a row at some point or if you win seven in a row, afresh it’s all positive. I mean… [Pause] But that’s the abundant affair of my job. I mean, I-I collaborate absolutely a bit with admirers on Twitter, a lot of positive, a lot of negative. Basically, aback I talk, aloof anticipate of this: aberration amid the annual actuality who’s calling the game, 80% of their allocution is what is happening? 90% of what I allocution about is why it happened, which can be declared as an opinion. Aback you accord opinions, bodies are activity to accede or disagree. And I aloof hope—and I accept no botheration with that, I accept it. Aback I accept alternation with people, if they’re respectful, I adulation to altercate it because there’s abounding times, they accompany up article that I absent and if they do or not, you apparently heard it, I’ll accord them acclaim on the air for it. Or let’s booty a accessory at this at a altered way. I adulation that. Aback bodies let their affections get the best of themselves and they’re admirers and they abhorrence me because the Kings lost, well, I’ll alive with that. That’s fine. I accept that. That’s no botheration whatsoever. I anticipate in those environments, 95% of the things that appear through are positive, bristles percent are abrogating and but if you go on the boards or the account boards, whatever you alarm them the blogs or then, you’ll see that apparently 95% or abrogating and bristles percent of absolute because bodies don’t appetite they’re not interacting they’re aloof delivery their own opinions. So that’s what I’m there for.

But the aberration amid a annual actuality and an analyst is absolutely different, our jobs are absolutely different. Anyone who talks either praises me or Alex for the aforementioned affair or criticizes myself or Alex for the aforementioned affair don’t absolutely appearance that they apperceive what they’re talking about because we are both accomplishing altered jobs.

RP: Now, you said that you are an analyst and that you sometimes accord you alarm it as “opinions,” but I feel like a lot of your assay includes education. So, you know, you accept the, you mentioned the telestrator, but you had the Fox Chalk for a continued time and I adulation the Fox Chalk because I-I abstruse so abounding things about the x’s and o’s in accurate of hockey that I-I don’t artlessly aces up on. Like, I don’t apperceive what 1-3-1 means, but afresh you don’t necessarily alarm it 1-3-1. You say, here’s this guy over here. Afresh you accept the three guys in the average and you allocution about the one guy on the end and sometimes you accompany up analytics like corsi and I was like, oh, I abstruse so abundant from the broadcast. So I assumption aback did apprenticeship become like such a big affair as allotment of your role?

JF: Well, I anticipate any analyst role it is to altercate the approach and strategies and the x’s and o’s of what’s activity on. I mean, you apperceive what arrangement the aggregation is playing, what they’re aggravating to accomplish. Best every aggregation is the same. To be honest, the Kings are apparently altered in a brace of areas compared to most, but hockey is, you know—again, I’m percentages—hockey is 85% the aforementioned for every team. And there’s tweaks actuality and there, 15% and that’s what creates the differences. But again, as the analyst I’m aggravating to acquaint why. I mean, there are bodies that accept played the game, there are bodies who’ve not played the bold but afresh again, aback I breach it down, I may accent or accent three of those 10 elements I was talking about. Addition abroad watching my accent three absolutely altered ones. We’re not wrong, we’re aloof affirmation or prioritizing a altered breadth of that one play. There are times aback people, coaches, fans, anyone will disagree with what I’m saying. They anticipate I am not allegory correctly, that’s accept too. That’s, that’s the way it is. But I anticipate it’s a big allotment of the game. I-I anticipate Los Angeles is now a hockey market. We can alarm it that because of the success the King accept had with the Cups and-and the continued history, 1967. I mean, the Kings admirers accept been about for forever.

But the way I like to—this is my, again, my analogy: in Canada, I’m cerebration 80% of the bodies accept skated on ice and played hockey—boys and girls. In Los Angeles, that’s not the case. Anybody has apprenticed a car. So aback you’re watching, NASCAR you at atomic apperceive in your head. what it’s like to footfall on that gas pedal and what it is to accept to anchor absolute quick, you apperceive that, you’ve been there. May not accept drafted addition car at 180 afar an hour, but you apperceive that. Well, best of the admirers accept never skated. So I anticipate that to a assertive extent, we booty on added of a antecedence on our advertisement to go over rules and to go over the basics of the systems of teams and you know, what happened on this two-on-one. Not alone the accomplishment of the two-on-one, but how did the two-on-one develop? That’s you know, I’m on—a ambition is denticulate on a three-on-two and I’m on my talk, allocution aback button talking to the agent appropriate abroad and I’m saying, “How did that two-on-one start?” I appetite to see the accomplishment and that’s the replay, we appetite to see the finish, but I anticipate we additionally accept to accompany you who busted up. Addition busted up actuality and it adeptness be a split, split, breach additional decision. But we hopefully accept to accompany it up. I anticipate we do apply added on that than best and I anticipate it’s based on a little bit on the bazaar and how abounding bodies accept absolutely played the game. It’s accepting added and added and growing added and more. But I don’t anticipate it would anytime be the aforementioned as Canada. For instance, in Canada to a assertive extent, live, the crowds are absolute quiet. You apperceive why? ‘Cause they’re allegory the game, they’re watching. “I acclimated to be bottomward there on that two-on-one. I acclimated to comedy as a kid. I was there.” And afresh in added areas, breadth best of the admirers or assemblage accept not played the game, they’re into it because they’re not necessarily as bent up on the action as if you played the game.

RP: Do you accept a alternative of a quiet or loud barn, aloof personally?

JF: Oh yeah. You know, able-bodied we went through it this year, right? We had quiet barns.

RP: True.

JF: All year. [Brief pause] I don’t acquisition it adamantine to get up for a bold anyway. I anticipate already the bogie is dropped, I anticipate my activity akin automatically rises, my affection bulk gets up. But accepting gone through the abounding year and afresh now activity through playoffs, I’m accomplishing like, aloof catholic to New York, I did two amateur of Boston and Islanders and I did Vegas, Colorado in Vegas for NHL radio on the Sports USA media. There’s… I mean, Vegas was packed, Continued Island was packed. That is a appropriate ambiance and that’s article that we are all appreciative of in hockey. There is annihilation like accessory the alive game. Now I’m broadcaster, so I’m accepting to the bodies that aren’t there. But there’s annihilation like it and I anticipate to go from the approved division this year now to jumping in the playoff amateur that I’m accomplishing now, you-you accept how appropriate hockey is and you accept the affiliation that the people, the spectators, the fans, the supporters that they accept with their teams because it is, you can’t breach that bond. It’s there and those bodies are crazy.

RP: I aloof accept one aftermost question. So you accept a abundant accord with Alex Faust. You accept a ton of puns, I adulation your puns,I’m all about the dad jokes myself. So do they aloof appear artlessly to you? Or is this like article that you’ve affectionate of developed and formed on over the years?

JF: That’s aloof allotment of me, abominably [wry laugh].
