Podcast Episode 30: Bench brawls, Steve ‘Mental Case’ Durbano & Muhammad Ali’s Shorts

We’re back for Episode 30!

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.

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.
