Let’s Talk About The Mayor
John Hoven was a fixture in Section 119 – He would jaw all game long as his seat was perfectly perched the opposing players bench.
He was even punched in the face by Detroit’s own Uwe Krupp. I think Rob Blake may have even thrown a stick at him.
Media guru Mike Altieri took a big bold chance by letting this blogger sit in the press box for a year. I did the interviews, held my tongue, and even pissed off Helene Elliott when she was absolutely dead wrong about a Ryan Smyth injury.
I got bored, had better things to do than to drive to El Segundo from Woodland Hills to get the same boring answers to my same boring questions.
Then John Hoven took over.
Thank the good lord Altieri took another chance with someone who had an even bigger mouth than I did.
John did everything I wanted to do, but he did it with class and dignity, unlike this idiot.
While Eddie Munster was boring the shit out of his readers with his godforsaken drivel, Hoven was a breath of fresh air to the players and to the media and quickly gained not only trust but a stellar reputation.
We missed him in 119.
So why hasn’t the Mayor been offered a great fucking job?
When Munster left, the Kings looked to Nashville and hired Rosen. Granted, more experienced (and maybe even slightly better looking?) –
Rosen appears on the XM. Rosen is quoted by Bob McKenzie. WHAT THE FUCK IS TAKING SO LONG FOR ESPN TO JUMP ON THIS GUY?
He’s funny, witty, smart, players love him, so what the fuck?
Can we get a petition going?
HIRE JOHN HOVEN.
Start a campaign. Start a indigogo fund. Get this guy where he deserves. In the mainstream media.
Okay, enough kissing the guys ass.
How come I can’t find one fucking picture of this guy on Google?
