The NHL's Frozen Four
Commodore, a Carolina Hurricanes fan favorite, was featured on an NHL.com chat today. One fan asked Commodore: "Do you have any interests outside hockey? If you weren't a hockey player, you'd be a ...?"
Commodore responded: "I like baseball and I enjoy golf. I read a lot of books. If I had to pick a school subject, I'd pick math. If I wasn't a hockey player, I'd like to be a lifelong college student at the University of North Dakota. I had a great time there."
For those of you living in Grand Forks, Canada or if you have access to CBC, you'll have to check out Coaches' Corner with Don Cherry on Saturday. The borderline out-of-control host made a bet before the Carolina-New Jersey series that if the Hurricanes won, he would wear a Mike Commodore robe on the set, instead of one of his brilliant suits.
Carolina's first game since winning that series is Saturday at 1 p.m. against Buffalo, so I would assume that is when he will don the robe. Commodore has popularized the robe in Carolina, as he wears it around the locker room before games.
