Podcast Episode 47: Cam Connor does a 2 hour Slap Shot movie watch along

Listen here or wherever podcasts are found.

We bring you a special 2 hour episode where Cam Connor revisits the movie Slapshot and provides a running commentary of the movie.

Through stories, Cam remembers this era and in fact watched the Slapshot movie in a theatre with Gordie Howe, so Cam provides a bit of Howe’s perspective as well. Let’s just say Gordie wasn’t too happy how hockey players were portrayed.

We hope you enjoy this episode and all the stories and memories shared.

Podcast Episode 30: Steve Durbano podcast, bench brawls & Muhammad Ali’s Shorts

EPISODE 30

We’re back for Episode 30 and it’s a Steve Durbano podcast episode and bench brawls!

Cam Connor’s name has been brought up over the past week as hockey fans and analysts predict that Montreal Canadiens could be facing the Toronto Maple Leafs in the playoffs this year. The last time those two teams played was in 1979 when Cam scored the double overtime goal in the playoffs, so Cam talks about the goal and addresses the goalie Mike Palmateer’s insulting comments after Cam scored on him.

Cam talks about Steve ‘Mental Case’ Durbano and what a crazy fighter he was and how even the toughest fighters didn’t want to fight him. If you haven’t heard of Steve Durbano, make sure to listen as he was wild and earned the nickname Steve ‘Mental Case’ Durbano.

A story about Serge Beaudoin and his wife’s hair catching on fire.

Cam shares some fun Houston Aeros stories.

Kris asks whether there is a strategy for who sits where in the dressing room (are name plates strategically placed)?

Given the recent video of the university bench brawl, Cam talks about that bench brawl and remembers the three major bench brawls he was in, with one including the Slapshot brothers and Paul Holmgren.

We end the podcast with a story about Dave Semenko fighting Muhammad Ali and giving Cam Ali’s boxer shorts.
