Andrew Ladd Is In Yr Radio

If you live in Calgary or use the Internet, that is. Ladd discusses many things with these Albertan radio roughnecks: getting traded to the Thrashers, another Stanley Cup ring, the legacy of Vaclav Havel, etc.

True story: your TBC editor once got into a verbal real life blog-war (I think people called them "confrontations" in the pre-Web era) with a resident of Calgary as the Chronicle staff was walking out of the Saddledome and down the Red Mile one crisp autumn night. It was amusing to all.

Oh yeah, before I forget, here's a little night music. If we were in Germany or some German-speaking place right now---let's say the Zurich airport late at night, staring into a frothy Heineken draught and pondering the best way to engage the tall, black-haired, multi-lingual barmaid in conversation---it might be called "eine klein nachtmusik."

Ah, I remember that verbal real life blog war well. It was great, great stiff.

Shooter, it is probably comments like that one that sparked that little real life blog war if you'll remember.

Remember the real life blog war Morty had with the eight year olds outside the MCI/Verizon Center in DC? That was a classic.

Then there was the real life blog war Morty had with traffic in Edmonton.

Then there was the time that guy killed Chris Knight's brother and then Chris Knight killed him and then Chris Knight sang about it while staring at his shoes.

Those eight-year-olds needed to learn some manners. Little hockey arena terrorists, they were.
