In Trump's America, Comedy Clubs Are Becoming Less And Less Funny
Huffington Post - 3 months
One night last month, improv player Peter Kim took the stage at the legendary Second City theatre in Chicago with the other members of his acclaimed comedy troupe for what was supposed to be just another fun night of laughs.  It would turn out to be anything but. During the show, the cast, which often involves audience members in their skits, asked a woman in the crowd to name something that annoyed her, “like getting stuck in traffic.” But the answer that rang loudest didn’t come from the woman. It came from another man in the audience, who was seated next to a Hispanic couple. “Sitting too close to a Mexican!” he shouted, before requesting a high-five from a friend.   I think that this moment of Donald Trump has resulted in a few people feeling more license to shout out crude remarks and behave crudely. Second City CEO Andrew Alexander The incident shook Kim, so much so that he decided he’d had enough. Over the preceding year, hecklers had become an increas ...

Hecklers, Hooligans and the Striped-Shirted Maitre D
Huffington Post Sports - over 2 years
As is the case with any human relationship, there are some players and coaches that officials get along with better than others. Likewise, these relationships can change for the better or for the worse over time. As a referee, I generally enjoyed dealing with the players and, to a lesser extent, the coaches. Honestly, I often got my biggest kick out of dealing with hockey fans. As a matter of fact, I have developed some of my closest friendships with hockey fans who heckled me. One time I was in Toronto and there was a man in the stands behind the bench sitting with a stunningly beautiful woman next to him. Throughout the game, he kept up with a running series of heckles aimed at me. Finally, before the start of the third period, I went over to the glass. "Hey, lady," I said, gesturing to the man with her. "Is THAT the only way you can get to a Leafs game? You know, I could get you better seats." Everyone around them laughed. The guy simmered down. After the game, h ...

Bruins Offseason 2012: Bruins Announce Multi-Year Extension With 98.5 The Sports Hub
SB Nation- Boston - over 4 years
The Boston Bruins and local radio outlet, 98.5 The Sports Hub announced today that they have reached an agreement on a multi-year extension of their current deal to keep Bruins games on the popular FM station. The Bruins have been on the station for the past three seasons after moving from fellow CBS station, WBZ 1030, including the teams run to the Stanley Cup in 2010 and will be there for many more to come, though terms were not disclosed. Both the Bruins and CBS (the parent company of 98.5) released statements praising their arrangement. “Over the past three years, the Bruins have been very happy to be partners with ‘98.5 The Sports Hub’ as the station has launched and grown,” said Bruins President Cam Neely. “We feel that 98.5 has truly embraced the Bruins and our fans across all of their programming, and we are happy that The Sports Hub will be the home for Boston hockey fans for years to come.” “The Bruins are one of the NHL’s treasured franchises and an Original S ...

Alex Ovechkin's Controversial Hit Adds to Debate Over Head Shots, Safer Equipment, Player Awareness
NESN - almost 5 years
Another day, another head shot debate. Saturday's NHL playoff action produced another nail-biter between the Rangers and Capitals, with Mike Green's late third-period goal the difference in a 3-2 Washington win to even the series. The game also stirred up more controversy with a questionable hit by Alex Ovechkin on Dan Girardi in the second period. Ovechkin was given a two-minute minor for charging, as he appeared to leave his feet as he made contact. Almost immediately, arguments raged over whether Ovechkin deserved further punishment from the league, although reports Saturday night had Ovechkin not expected to face a hearing with league disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan despite Ovechkin's prior suspensions for illegal hits. No surprise there. Ovechkin may not get star treatment from his own coach, with Dale Hunter limiting his ice time in the playoffs, but he is still a star, and that has its privileges when it comes to the league's handling of supplemental discipline. Ove ...

    Neely also played in the Alumni Game of the 2016 Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium against the Montreal Canadiens Alumni on a Bruins Alumni team including Bourque, Mark Recchi and Terry O'Reilly and coached by, among others, Mike Milbury, Lyndon Byers and Don "Grapes" Cherry.
    More Details Hide Details Neely was born in Comox, British Columbia and grew up in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Both of his parents died of cancer. Neely remains active in the Cam Neely Foundation run in conjunction with Tufts Medical Center, where patients and their families avail themselves of accommodation at the "Neely House" while undergoing cancer treatments. Former World Wrestling Entertainment personality Justin LaRouche wrestled for the company's ECW brand under the moniker "Bam Neely", which is a take off Neely's name as well as his old nickname "Bam-Bam Cam". Neely is married and has two children. Neely sits on the Board of Directors of Whistler Blackcomb Holdings Inc., which was created by an IPO by Intrawest Corp. on November 1, 2010. Within that Board, he is a Member of the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee. Neely has appeared on Denis Leary's series Rescue Me, playing a hockey-playing firefighter who wreaks havoc during a NYPD vs. FDNY game. He made a cameo in the eighth-season opening episode of Cheers, entitled "The Improbable Dream", as a bar patron.

    Age 45
    On Wednesday, June 15, 2011, Neely returned to British Columbia as the Bruins faced the Canucks in the first Stanley Cup Finals Game 7 in Bruins history and watched the Bruins win 4-0 to win their first Stanley Cup since 1972, allowing Neely to lift the Cup after it had eluded him as a player.

    On September 25, 2007, Neely was appointed Vice President of the Boston Bruins, and was named President of the team on June 16, 2010.

  • THIRTIES
  • 2005
    Age 39
    Neely was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2005.
    More Details Hide Details He said "To be honest, I never concerned myself too much with the Hall of Fame, just like I never concerned myself with numbers when I played," he said. "I just tried to do my best and work hard. Whether I played well or not was another story."
  • 1998
    Age 32
    In November 1998, Neely attempted a comeback after being out of hockey for two years.
    More Details Hide Details Neely said this in a 2008 interview about it: I wish that my lungs felt as good as my hip. If I last four days (of practice) in a row and my hip's barking at me, then that's all she wrote. I know how I felt when I had to retire and I know how I'm feeling now. It's not really how I want to feel. It was fun while I was out there but each day I skated, the pain just kind of lingered a lot longer than I would have liked. I was feeling really good and had started getting some different treatment. I practiced a few times with the Bruins but after some really hard practices, realized there was just no way I could continue."
  • TWENTIES
  • 1993
    Age 27
    Only Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, and Brett Hull scored a better goals per game average over the course of an NHL season than Neely did with his 50-goals-in-49-games in the 1993–94 season (despite missing 35 games that season).
    More Details Hide Details Also, only ten players in NHL history scored a better goals per game average over their career than Neely. He reached the fifty goal mark three times, played in five All-Star games, and was named the league's Second Team All-Star at right wing in 1988, 1990, 1991, and 1994.
    Neely's intense efforts to come back time and again from his devastating injuries were recognized with his winning of the Masterton Trophy after the 1993–94 season.
    More Details Hide Details The Bruins have since retired #8 in his honor, making him the tenth player to have a number retired by the team. Despite his shortened career, he recorded some remarkable scoring feats.
    In the 1993–94 season Neely scored his 50th goal in his 44th game; only Gretzky has scored 50 goals in fewer games.
    More Details Hide Details This milestone is unofficial as the 50 goals must be scored in the first 50 games the team plays, counting from the start of the season. Other players have also "unofficially" reached this milestone, such as Alexander Mogilny, Jari Kurri, and Bobby Hull. He was regularly listed as a healthy scratch in alternate games in order to rest his ailing knee, but it would be a degenerative hip condition that forced Neely to retire after the season at the age of 31. In one memorable incident in 1994, the tip of Neely's right pinky finger was cut off through his glove, requiring 10–15 stitches to repair. After sustaining the injury early in the second period, Neely received the stitches, and returned to the game later that period. Neely scored an assist, but the Bruins ultimately lost the game against the Devils 2–1.
  • 1991
    Age 25
    On May 3, 1991, during Game 3 of the 1991 Prince of Wales Conference Finals, Neely was checked by Ulf Samuelsson, and injured on the play, and was hit again to the knee in game 6.
    More Details Hide Details Compounding the situation was the fact that Neely developed myositis ossificans in the injured area. The injury kept Neely out of all but 22 games of the next two seasons, and Neely would only play 162 NHL games for the remainder of his career after the hit because of knee trouble.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1983
    Age 17
    Neely was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks ninth overall in the 1983 entry draft and played three seasons with them.
    More Details Hide Details Neely was traded along with a draft pick (1st choice, 3rd overall in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft, used to take Glen Wesley) to the Boston Bruins for Barry Pederson. Canucks head coach Tom Watt was not impressed with Neely's defence (Neely was 20 at this time), and that was what made him tradeable. Neely said "I was playing behind Stan Smyl and Tony Tanti, so I didn't see a lot of ice time, and, certainly not on the power plays." Almost immediately, it became apparent that the Bruins had received the better of the deal. Neely stated that "I was surprised at the trade. I really didn't know what to expect once I got to Boston and had no idea that my career would turn out the way it did for those ten years. From Day One in training camp, I just wanted to get the opportunity to play. The coaches said, 'Let's see what he can do.' As time went by, I got more and more confidence. I never really thought I'd be a 50-goal scorer, but I was given a chance to contribute offensively, not just physically."
    Neely played right wing for the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League from 1983 to 1996, #8.
    More Details Hide Details Neely was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2005. He currently serves as the president of the Boston Bruins. Neely played hockey with the Ridge Meadows Hockey Association for the majority of his minor career and has been named to the Maple Ridge honorable people list. With the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League he led the team to the Memorial Cup Championship, becoming the first US-based team to claim the Cup.
