Welcome Dave Hill:

We’re joined on the Starline by author, comedian, musician, actor, radio host and podcaster. On tour with Tenacious D. The man who once pranked a homeless shelter by drinking apple juice. His latest book is “The Awesome Game”. We welcome the pride of St. Ignatius Prep School, Dave Hill.

Dave, let’s go Beyond the Mic. In “The Awesome Game” you discuss talking to Russian hockey stars at 10, skating with the Kenya Ice Lions and watching hockey in Finland. What makes watching a hockey game so exhilarating for you?

Amazing that somebody paid you to write it… (we know the truth)

The Rockin’ 8:

It’s time for the Rockin’ 8, 8 random questions, answer with the first thing that comes to your mind. There is no Pressure.

1. Most important hockey question of all time, was Brett Hull’s foot in the crease?

2. First guitar you ever owned and do you still have it?

3. If you could skate with one team, just for a practice, which NHL team would it be?

4. Which hockey sweater is your holy grail?

5. When you played, what penalty did you get called the most for?

6. Best memories of Fordham University?

7. Favorite wine of all time?

8. Other than your Cleveland Monsters, what was the best hockey game you’ve ever seen live?

One Big Question:

How did Joe Franklin influence you as a writer, comedian and author?

The Wrap:

He always got called for hooking, would love to skate for Rangers / Montreal and is insulted by anyone who thinks Brett Hull skate is in the crease. His book is the funny “The Awesome Game.” Dave thanks for taking the time to talk with us today.

And that my friends is a Beyond the Mic Short Cut.
