This week's winner follows a similar theme to the last one, "haha Flames and Oilers, your hockey team is struggling". Leading up to tonight's LA Kings vs Edmonton Oilers matchup, a couple of the Kings twitter accounts have been chirping the Oilers. I'm sure it's the insecure Blue Jacket fan in me that likes it when the CBJ aren't called out as a bad team on a National level. Whatever the case, a good 'Oilers suck' insult seems to get me every time. Enjoy...

Joe and Morgan are again a man down as John is on the 15 day DL with a throat infection. Joe and Morgan break down the CBJ parabolic orbit over the last 10 days. In the second segment, Joe introduces and idea that would make the game more appealing to novices. John is not forgotten as he sends in 3 trivia questions each for Joe and Morgan to ask each other. The winner gets a free Chipotle Burrito. To round out the hour long show, Joe and Morgan reach into the archives and find a Rat Pack-esqe Blue Jackets rendition of "My Favorite Things." It's awesome.

Joe and Morgan saddle up at Buffalo Wild Wings at Polaris for a #CBJBWW viewing party! John was unable to join the Cast de Pod so we enlist the services of Intern Zach to round our the Cast of Three. Intern Zach says like 7 words the entire episode. The first segment container a recap of the Bi-Polar Nature of the recent CBJ games. In segment two, we review the CBJ Drinking Game for the 2013-2014 seaon. In segment 2.5 two lovely members of the CBJ Ice Crew stop by for an interview. And by the third segement everybody is completely hammered and we try a new segment called, Making Morgan Mad.

I decided to take my twitter time line back to 7pm Eastern and "watch" the game 'twitter style'. I've done this before, and it's actually quite fun. I follow over 200 dedicated Blue Jackets fans and media, so it's a fun and emotional mix of how the game is going. I wanted to get a sense for which of the bipolar Jackets were going to show up. I quickly learned that it was more "EDM" and less "TOR". I guess I should thank them for saving me 2.5 hrs last night and me being even more tired this morning...
Since I did get a really good night of sleep, I woke up this morning with a fresh mind ready to come up with catchy blog post titles. I came up with "To Catch A Predator", and here we are. No game recap, no insight to anything really. Just a cool title and a rather lame blog post. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
According to my BiPolar Jackets schedule, we are due to blow out Edmonton 5-0 tomorrow night. Can't wait!

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon". Instead of co-stars in movies we use teammates on a team. This works especially well for Vinny Prospal considering he came into the NHL in 1996 and has played for the Flyers, Senators, Panthers, Lightning, Ducks, Rangers and Blue Jackets. Are we all on the same page? Good, now let's play!
If you feel like challenging others via twitter, use the hashtag "#SDVP". One of the first challenges I gave for myself yesterday was Mike Modano. In somewhat of a surprise, my Prospal Number was 3. It went like this:
1) In 2010, Mike Modano played for the Stars with Brad Richards
2) In 2012, Brad Richards played for the Rangers with Rick Nash
3) In 2011, Rick Nash played for the Blue Jackets with VINNY PROSPAL
Can anyone do it in 2?
Okay, now for my challenge. What is the lowest amount of players you can link Vinny to Phil Kessel?
Use the comments of this post, or tweet it out with the tag "#SDVP".

DKM Hockey Podcast: Episode 23 - the search for episode 22! Joe, John, and Morgan return for an LP session in Episode 23. Episode 22 will forever be lost as a podcasting glitch. These things happen. The boys need answers about the team's consistency and they welcome Jeff Rimer to the first segment of the show. Jeff's insight into the makeup of the CBJ dressing room and culture puts the boys at ease. In the second segement, with Jeff Rimer covering many points to be covered later in the show, the boys return to the amature podcast status to discuss the CBJ Social Station experience and have some more fun with the CBJ Magic 8 ball. Segment three is everyone's favorite - Being John Kempovich.

It's a two and a half men show! No, Morgan does not go all Charlie Sheen on us in this episode. John is AWOL for part of this technological disaster of a show. To help out, Dan from The Cannon joins us to give us his assessment of the CBJ 5 games into the 2013-14 campaign. Joe and Morgan take on the second segment in tandom and introduce a refined CBJ Magic 8 ball and get a couple unexpected surprises. John joins the rest of the second segment to bring closure to the great DKM burrito debate. And in the thirs segment, the boys announce the winner of the DKM Contest Contest Winner and release their fourth parody song, "If you like Boomer the Cannon." Joe and Morgan CANNOT SING. You have been warned.

In Episode 20 Joe, John, and Morgan provide lots of laughs. All that can be said about the 2013-2014 Columbus Blue Jackets has been said, all the speculation, the Playoffs, the scoring. The boys open the first segment reviewing the roster additions for Ryan Murray, Boone Jenner, and David Savard. In the second Segment, the boys explore two social scenarios and turn to the fans to help decide. To answer the unaswerable questions, the DKM crew enlist the services of the CBJ Magic 8 ball. And in the final segment, the boys pander the Contest Contest to the listers and add another Chapter in the B is for Boomer Children's book - J is for Jody Shelley

Also, we brinng back Matt and Jordan from @TheCBJArtillery because we messed up their interview at Cannonfest. For the third segment Blue Jackets Defensemen James Wisniewski joins the podcast to discuss camp, the upcoming season, and WizWear. The boys wind down the segment with some new drops for the show and adopt a CBJ player as their child for the season. Hilarity will ensue.

CannonFest IV came and went in the blink of an eye, and here I am a couple days later thinking back to all of the great things that took place. The crowd turnout was fantastic. I was there almost an hour before the event was scheduled to begin and many of the tables were already claimed. Fans showed up in droves decked out in Union Blue and brought with them their passion for this Blue Jackets team. It felt great!
Being a proud member of the DKM Hockey blog and podcast, we were quite pleased and excited to be asked to do a podcast during CannonFest. It turned out to be a great episode filled with a huge line up of great guests. Before the CannonFest episode, the Social Station Episode was the leader for star-studded guests, but just take a look at everyone that joined us for this one:
- Matt Souva (@Zekebud) the Hockey Writers
- Pete from Tilly Hockey
- Mike Galloway (@gallosdbj) Dark Blue Jacket
- Jordan (@theCBJArtillery)
- Mike Majeski (@mmajeski06) Union & Blue
- Dancing Kevin (@kschroeder1720) you know, this guy
- Aaron Portzline (@APortzline) the Columbus Dispatch
- Matt Wagner (@bzarcher) the Cannon
- Tom Larrow (@skraut_) amazing video guy
- Brett Ireland (@ROCKMANHALO) Full Mental Jackets
- Greg May (@gregin120) Full Mental Jackets
|Morgan and Joe following rule number 1 (drink while podcasting)|
|Thank you Alison for your support, now we can just sit back and wait for the thousands of new listeners to pour in|
|This is what the board looks like when Kevin Schroeder is on the podcast|
It didn't end there. Oh no, Kevin kept that shirt on the rest of the afternoon, and all the way to his car afterward (I left at the same time, I was not following him). He walked around getting pictures with fans and smiling with that way-too-small shirt gripping his mid section for dear life (bit of a Jerry Seinfield reference there).
|Good thing that wasn't Boomer, Kevin would have tackled him (psssttt)|

The DKM boys podcast live from Cannonfest IV at Buffalo Wild Wings on Bethel Road in Columbus. Since you can't take Cannofest with you, the next best thing is to hear from some of the folks who attended. It seems like only yesterday when DKM Hockey was a budding blog trying to squeak out a name for itself at Cannonfest 3. Now, thanks to the gracious hosts of this fan organized event, we are able to podcast live and bring the atmosphere to you! To celebrate this event, we bring on the old guard and rising stars in the CBJ social media world. What would a DKM Hockey Podcast be without a little 80's pop culture? So several of our guests took the time to complete hockey themed Mad Libs penned by the DKM crew. Here is an outline of the show should you wish to skip right to specific parts:
00:00 - Jarmo Kekalainen acknowledges our existence!
00:05 - Show intro with guest @zekebud - Matt
08:45 - Pete from @TillyHockey stops by to talk about their apparel line
17:50 - Blogosphere stalwart @GallosDBJ stop buy to chat past Cannonfests and excitement for this upcoming season
25:30 - the boys from @TheCBJArtillery stop by to fill out a Madlib
29;30 - Mike Majeski stops by to talk about blogging for the Union and Blue @mmajeski06
37:40 - Kevin Schroeder stops by for another segment of "Kevin being Kevin" @kschroeder1720
42:40 - Aaron Portline of the Columbus Dispatch calls in to talk all things CBJ @Aportzline
59:45 - Master of Cannofest Videos Tom Larrow @skraut_ and Cannonfest Co-Founder Matt Wagner of The Cannon @bzarcher stop by to reflect on the day.

Just like how each of the Toy Story movies are better than the last, so goes each
of the CannonFest events over the years (warning, don't use this movie analogy on Short
Circuit OR Crocodile Dundee). For me, August is a special time each year. To start
with, it is my birth month which already makes it pretty cool (right fellow August
Leos? July Leos are sort of cool, but only because they are like the younger brother
to the August Leos). August is also home to the Summer Session CAHL playoffs, and
fantasy football. There is another kind of fantasy brewing in Columbus in August, and
it has to do with the Blue Jackets...(hint, it rhymes with CannonFest)

Officially titled The Power Hour Episode, Joe, John, and Morgan drink a shot of beer a minute for 60 minutes, then press "record" on the podcast machine for our 17th session. The sound quality isn't as sharp for this episode as we used a new digital recording device. Anyhoo, in segment one we welcome friend of the show and local high school hockey coach Pat Murphy to chat for 20 minutes. Murph shares his experiences playing professionally in Europe and North America as well as offering insight into a successful high school hockey program. In segment two, we have consumed exponentially more alcoholic beverages and ponder what Columbus Blue Jacket themed "Garbage Pail Kids" might be like. And in the third segment, which absolutely no one remembers recording, is a spontaneous episode of Being John Kempovich. We are all introduced to a new word in this segment. Seriously, none of us remember this segment.

Joe, John, and Morgan drag themselves from the post season blues for an another exciting episode. John shares his childhood love of "choose your own adventure books" and we read a handful of page of his recently published "Jarjoe Kekareader" CBJ adventrue book. The boys finally agree on letter "G" in their childrens book of B is for Boomer. They boys also share the much anticipated "Vinny" tribute song in this innuendo laden episode.

DKM Podcast, you will have noticed that on occasion we like to perform some parody songs. It all started during Episode 7 with "Fake Plastic Blue Jackets", a parody of the Radiohead classic "Fake Plastic Trees". Morgan wrote the lyrics and sang while Joe played guitar and John- well, John held the mic by the guitar.

In their best EVER season ending podcast, the boys welcome guest host @UnionMarc to the first segment to talk all things Bobrovsky. Joe, John, and Morgan review the highlights of the 2013 season.

What was slated as a 10 minute closing segment to the Playoff Push Episode turns into a 45 minute bathroom humor giggle fest. Joe and Morgan along with Gallos welcome Dancing Kevin Schroeder back onto the show. But that's not all, Frank Adams known throughout the world as @TheAngryJacket crashes the Podcast and gives great perspective on #Lumbus, the Playoffs, and Buck toothed Alley Cats. Kevin fantasizes about tackling Boomer and shares a great Claude Lemieux story!
Live from the #CBJBWW veiwing party on April 25th in Powell, OH. Joe, John, and Morgan welcome two special guests to the Podcast - Full Mental Jacket's Brett Ireland aka @RockmanHalo and Dark Blue Jacket stalward blogger Mike Galloway aka @gallosdbj. The crew explores the possibility of a Blue Jacket casted Star Wars trilogy.

Gallos and the boys then discuss what this playoff push as meant to them and what might still be ahead. BRING THE THUNDER!

As a preview to the DKM Hockey podcast recording tonight from the CBJ Buffalo Wild Wings watch party in Powell, the guys offer these three keys to tonight's game. Come out and join us at 8:30pm in Powell for wings, beer and Blue Jacket hockey!
Key 1: Morgan
Thursday's game against the Stars is the biggest game of the season to the Jacekts for painfully obvious reasons. In games like this, you star players have to be star players. Marian Gaborik has to be putting the puck on net. Dubinsky has to be using his body and speed to generate turnovers. Wisniewski has to be effective on the powerplay. And Vinny, Vinny has to keep the players focused during the game. Star players have to be stars in Big Games and this is a pretty big one.
Key 2: Joe
I agree that the Blue Jackets need to rely on their best player tonight: Sergei Bobrovsky. "Bob" has been stellar in goal this season, and is in my opinion the primary reason the Jackets are even in the playoff hunt. He hasn't been stellar over the past few games of the road trip, however; and his teammates have worked hard to bail him out with "yuge" goals in "yuge" moments. Bobrovsky needs to anchor the team's defense in the NHL's top star form he has shown to give the team its best chance for a victory.
Key 3: John
Thursday, April 18, 2013
Joe, John, and Morgan return for lucky Episode 13 and welcome back Tom Felrath of DBJ fame. The crew introduce a few chapters to the new CBJ childrens book, "B is for Boomer." John and Tom have their 'Dead Pool' tie breaker in the form of Blue Jackets Jeopardy. The boys write a tribute song to RJ Umberger and close the show with a super long "Being John Kempovich" segment.

Joe, John, and Morgan set up camp at Buffalo Wild Wings in Gahanna, OH for a #CBJBWW viewing party. What a great week for CBJ fans. Greg May of Full Mental Jackets sits down to discuss what might be the greatest week for an GM in franchise history. Morgan and Joe interview the first ever DKM contest winner, Lyndsay Wilson. Nationwide Arena Host Mike Todd stops by for a great guest interview and the DKM Crew finally reaches the end of the Oregon Trail.

Be sure to come out for the fun, and let us know if there's another Jacket you think will be traded off the roster before the picks below!
Everyone's would-be first choice for a trade target.
Veteran defenseman could help a team's playoff push.
Bringer of the knee-high heat.
Will his (prolific?!) scoring ability attract offers?
Smooth-skating youngster could get swooped up by a Hawk.
Attractive for teams wanting a big body to bang around opponents.
Because John Moore was drafted by DBJ. GET TO THE CHOPPA!
Speedy skater could bring good energy to a playoff team.

Joe, John, and Morgan are back in Episode 11 to update everyone on their hilarity on the CBJ Oregon Trail. But the boys have a special guest during the entire show, none other then Mr Dark Blue Jacket himself, Tom Fellrath. With the trade deadline approaching, the four of us draft two players for the CBJ death pool as we try to pick the CBJ player most likely to be traded at the deadline. With the 12 game point streak over, Morgan is back in therapy. The show winds down with a little Q&A with Tom from DBJ and the boys finally make good on a Best Buy gift card give-a-way.
