Back in the Cup Conversation

If George McPhee’s Monday morning began on a hotseat, likely it ended in repose on something closer to a throne. Or at least, hopefully: a good leather recliner in his Maryland home, with a bottle of Canadian beer in hand, fetched for him by his hockey playing and Caps’ loving son. McPhee earned at least […]

McPhee’s Moment

Is this the most important day in the NHL executive career of Capitals’ General Manager George McPhee? You could make a compelling case that it is. Publicly, McPhee is standing solidly behind his 33-20-10, second-place-in-the-Southeast squad. (The team’s 20 regulation losses before March are 5 more than the team lost in regulation all of last […]

Snowed Out from a Sour Message

Funny story: about two weeks ago I got a fresh request to appear on 106.7 the Fan’s ‘Overtime‘ evening program, but I fielded the request while in one of the few Bethesda, Md., commercial properties with power that night (a bar); we’d just been snow-blasted by Mother Nature. My home — Pepco-powered — was of […]

OFB TV: Turn Back the Clock Night Brings Similar Results

On Tuesday night the Capitals played in their retro jerseys to commemorate one time Cap, Dino Ciccarelli. While the team jumped out strong in the first period, turning back the clock still led to similar results in the form of a 3-2 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens. John Keeley is joined by Sky Kerstein of 106.7 The Fan to discuss the game.

Back Behind Enemy Lines

I will never not root for a nuclear holocaust to strike Philadelphia first among American cities (Pittsburgh a close second), and especially all of these arenas and stadiums new and old that populate south Philly on a single, blighted looking industrial property, but I must credit the Flyers’ organization for being supportive of out-of-town hockey […]

More Puck Chattin’ on the Fan

Right before the Caps stinker performances in Florida this week we took some time to talk to the boys on ‘Overtime’ on 106.7 The Fan. Always a fun gig. Some of the issues they discussed — second line center by committee, the underwhelming performances this season by a litany of skilled forwards, the captain’s ongoing, […]

Caps Welcomed Warmly in Pittsburgh

Holiday Hockey Talk on the 106.7 Fan

We began our holidays with a visit back on 106.7 the Fan, with studio Santas Danny Rouhier, Grant Paulson, and Bill Rohland, to chat the Caps’ return to winning ways, our big gig on New Years Day, and the play of particular Caps’ players over the course of the first quarter of the season. John […]

A Righteous Rant Calls Into Question the Durability of No. 1

When it comes to the Redskins, we’ve had our schadenfreude say here over the years. Of late, we’ve avoided comment. A totaling car crash is a totaling car crash. Our position remains: a once flagship franchise, one that no small number of OFBers was belovedly attached to in youth, has been single-handedly ruined — desecrated, […]

Airing Out the Play of the Caps in Month One

For me, radio appearances are a total blast. I never pass up an opportunity to go on the air — especially locally — and talk pucks. There’s something distinctive about radio as a media vehicle for conveying passion about a subject. It’s a medium that places a premium on precision of words and inflection and […]
