THI417: OutSport.com's Jim Buzinski

The Hockeywood Insider podcastFor the first three games in February, the Kings are unbeaten in regulation. That's probably the reason why we're so excited in this episode of the Hockeywood Insider. And probably why we stretched the show to over an hour of babbling.

OutSport.com's Jim BuzinskiThis week, we tackle a topical issue that doesn't directly affect the Kings, even though it involves a former player. Sean Avery went on record last week in his support of a gay teammate, a surprising thing to hear coming from one of the league's most notoriously agitating players. Turns out, Avery's comments aren't that surprising. We are joined by Jim Buzinski, co-founder of the website OutSports.com, who points out that while it is surprising such support could come from such a polarizing player, Sean Avery has perhaps had more exposure to it more than the average straight player. It's one of the best interviews we've had on the show, and one that is sure to promote some dialogue and hopefully some support of those players who might be feeling they can't be themselves.

We also take a look at last week's games, crown a King of the week, and take a look at statistical analysis that may or may not be that relevant to figuring out a player's real worth. Plus, we talk about the Super Bowl, the commercials around the Big Game, alternative reality gaming (it's not nerdy. No, not at all.) When it was all said and done, we were over an hour.

But we pass on the savings to you. In fact, it's free! Don't forget, you can subscribe on iTunes, so you can get the podcast before anyone else does. And since you're in the clicking mood, like The Hockeywood Insider on Facebook.
