JK's Male Bag!

Current mood: Sprightly
Current tunes: Singin' In The Rain


It is time for the first ever installment of the JKSockey Male Bag. From time to time, especially on these rainy days, I will dig into my bag and answer a few questions from my readers. If you have a question you would like addressed or would like to know my opinion, drop me a line at jksockey@yahoo.com

Dear JK Sockey,
My older brother says you suck, but I think the insight and info you provide to the fans is wonderful. Keep up the great work!
-Clarice Gold, Roswell, GA

Quid pro quo Clarice, how old is your brother?
-JKS


Dear JK Sockey,
Do you think the Thrashers will make the playoffs?
-Michael Lee, Carrolton, GA


Only three games into the season, it is way too early to tell, but I am confident that by the end of the season, we will know if this is a playoff caliber team or not.
-JKS


Dear JK Sockey,
What are your thoughts on the Peter Bondra signing?
-Larry Shearer, Atlanta, GA


For as long as I can remember, I have always found Peter exciting. Especially one that brings added depth to the forward position. Being a respected member of the media affords me the unique opportunity of unlimited access to the team. If there is one thing I am looking forward to this season, it is going to the locker room and getting to see a lot of Peter.

JKSockey Hires Ygor Feofanov


In an effort to gather further information on the Ilya Kovalchuk contract situation as well as to increase coverage of international hockey for the upcoming Olympiad, JKSockey has secured the services of Ygor Feofanov.

Ygor Feofanov had covered Soviet bloc hockey on radio and in print for Pravda since the 1950’s. Feofanov wrote about Olympic hockey and specifically the powerful Red Army team that dominated international play from 1954 to the 1980’s. He was prasied by Leonid Brezhnev for his coverage of the Soviet victory at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics.

After the fall of Communism in 1991, Feofanov was disgraced when it was discovered that some of his biggest stories, such as “NHL Stars Attempt Mass Defection To CCCP”, were complete fabrications. Russians from St. Petersburg to Siberia mocked his earlier works, so Feofanov focused on writing comedy. In 1993 he was allowed to publish and produce his one-man play, “Solidarność Night Live”; his comedic look at the rise of Polish polititian Lech Wałęsa.

The play bombed and Feofanov found solace in Vodka. He remained drunk and unemployed for the next 15 years and now JKSockey is working to help him revive his career.


Ygor is currently working as a freelance reporter and comedy writer. He will sober up and call in from time to time with news and comments from different locations in and around Eastern Europe. We at JKSockey.com home to hear from him soon…


Bite me,
JK
