A Quick Slants Life, part 2


A Quick Slants Life, part 2

By Adam Hart

Tom E. Curran is the first Quick Slants host to be mic'd up for an entire two weeks of the production season. You've seen Part 1, and now it's time to complete the journey with this CSNNE.com exclusive.

A Halloween party, struggles motivating the crew, technology issues, a disdain for 'punks' and using literature to circle the wagons. Maybe Curran and Bill Belichick have more in common than anyone could have thought.

If you don't get all the references, watch for re-airings of A Football Life: Bill Belichick on NFL Network. Some clips from the documentary can be found on NFL.com.

Here are all the hockey links from around the world, and what I’m reading while having a deep thought while watching commercials: how lost in your own quirkiness do you have to be to name your kid Beowulf?

*The Predators had a nasty case of food poisoning hit their team, and Adam Vingan has all the gory details.

*A great chat with FOH (Friend of Haggs) Jimmy Murphy and the legendary Russ Conway about the legendary Bobby Orr.

*Martin Biron says that Frederik Andersen looks like a much different player now with Toronto than he did with the Anaheim Ducks last season.

*An observation from a Tuesday with 1,000 decisions is that Dallas Stars head coach Lindy Ruff has a really tough job.

*As mentioned above, Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen is having a tough time in his new locale, and there may be several reasons why.

*An early Christmas present for Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop would be his two front teeth.

*Pro Hockey Talk has Sidney Crosby returning on Tuesday night, and immediately leading the Penguins in a balanced attack.  

*For something completely different: A. Sherrod Blakely has his Celtics preview, and says it’s a new year with tons of new expectations for the Men in Green.
