Steve Migs Blog 08/03/15 "Draft Tournament In Richmond"

What an incredible weekend… I was in Richmond B.C. for a hockey tournament. The tournament is called the "Draft Tournament" – it's a travelling tournament that you don't go with a team. You go to the host city, spend the Friday night before the games drinking and drafting a team. If this sounds familiar…I just did one a few months ago in Bremerton. I love the experience so much that I decided to sign up for the Vancouver (Richmond) tournament…which was happening at The Olympic Oval…

Somehow, this one was even more fun than the Bremerton tournament (which is saying a lot because that one was one of the most fun experiences of my life). This one felt like an awesome family reunion. Even though it's a weekend experience… we all spend so much time together (5 games in 2 days, and all the post games gatherings) that you quickly bond. By the end of Friday night I made so many new friends, met so many interesting people…and we all shared a common obsession – hockey. By Saturday night I felt like I knew some of the people there for years, not days.

I only knew one person on my team that I drafted before the games, and by the end of the weekend I was genuinely bummed that I
won't see these guys and gals until the next draft tournament that I can play in.

On top of that… the rink that we played at was jaw droppingly awesome. It's the Olympic Oval in Richmond, and props to TJ for snapping some great photos!


Here I am….I played on Team Coquitlam… or as we called ourselves, The Quitters!


I am glad TJ was there to take these awesome pics, because my goal of documenting everything with pictures and videos went out the door once the booze stated flowing. It started promising… once we got to the hotel we decided to go for a dip in the pool…which had an awesome waterslide …

When there's a 250 foot water slide at your hotel... You enjoy it! #drafttournament @drafttournamenthockey

A video posted by Steve Migliore (@imstevemigs) on




There were so many great highlights… many of them might not sound like much to those that weren't there… like busting out into an A cappella version of the Cheers theme song at 2 am outside the bar with about 20 other people…or a full on hoe down in the parking lot at 3 am to the song "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" … but for us that were there, these were the moments that would keep us laughing throughout the weekend. By Sunday, your body is spent from the hockey and the late nights… and I know that I speak for many when I say that if given the opportunity, I would do it all again next weekend.

This was another fun moment…this illustrates how much camaraderie exists at these events. Our bud Nick, who is also one of the organizers of this event…has never won the "A" level Championship (based on how you do in your first 4 games determines where you play for the championship…my team wound up winning the "B'level champiuonship) in all the years he has played. Well that changed yesterday… and a bunch of us were waiting for him to get off the ice to "celebrate" the championship with him!



If you play hockey, and you want to have a weekend of a lifetime… you should consider doing one of their Draft Tournaments. You can get info on their Facebook page or HERE.

Steve Migs Blog 07/31/15 "Learn To Fly"

I don’t know what’s happening to me…but some random stuff puts me in an emotional state.  Yesterday I came across a video that made me tear up a little bit… this video just confirms my love and passion for music.  The joy you will see in the faces of everyone singing and playing is giving me goose bumps as I type this.  That feeling I see on their face is the feeling I have when I jam on the drums with my buds!

A guy in Italy is trying to convince the Foo Fighters in his town.  So for the past year he has been working on this huge event – to have 1000 people perfom the song “Learn To Fly”.  Watch and enjoy!


 
I don’t know if you caught the guy on the drums at about 1:12 into that video, but as I was watching the video I was saying to myself, “damn…I wish I could have been there” and then BAM…my twin brother appears on the screen.  That was pretty trippy to see!
 
Happy Seafair Weekend everyone!  The weather is going to be great…the Blue Angels are here!  I came across this amazing photo on Twitter… This would be an awesome picture framed on a wall!

Steve Migs Blog 07/31/15 "Russell... YES!"

This was the best news to come down during our show... Russell Wilson just signed a new deal for a TON of money!  Seeing this tweet made me jump for joy... seriously... I jumped up and down in excitement while on the air!
 

How excited am I?  Right before we started Beat Migs I read Russell's tweet confirming the news...

Steve Migs Blog 7/30/15 "Drunk Friend!"

Here’s a new fun game you can play with your drunk friends!  Some guy fell asleep in the backseat of a car, so his friends decided to see how many Twizzlers they could stick in his mouth without waking him up. 

They managed to fit 11 in there...yes, ELEVEN...plus two in his glasses before he woke up…

Steve Migs Blog 07/29/15 "Rainier On Pine"

Yesterday The Migs Cast went on a road trip to visit one of Washington’s recreational pot shop… Rainier On Pine in Tacoma.

This was basically like parents (Rev and I) taking a son (Nick) to the greatest toy store in the world.  Nick was like a kid in a candy shop.   Thanks to Donnie for inviting us by after we interviewed him on a recent episode of The Migs Cast!
 

 

 
If you missed that interview… check it out here.
 

 
Huge thanks to the rest of the crew at Rainier On Pine:  Liz, Jeff, John, and Brian – your passion for the product was a blast to be around…it was fun to learn about the different ways people use marijuana…from smoking it…to drops…to edibles…to lotions to help with ailments, it was beyond informative.  Plus my favorite nugget of info…when it comes to the affect of Indica weed as opposed to Sativa… Indica = In-Da-Couch!

Steve Migs Blog 07/28/15 "Doing The Whip and The Nae Nae"

Yesterday I shared my experience at the Motley Crue show.  I don’t think anyone’s experience could top my bud Jean-Marcus and everyone else that was fortunate enough to sit on the mini stage that Motley Crue had set up by the sound board for their encore.  Check out this sweet video my bud posted…it’s an incredible perspective!
 
 

MÖTLEY CRÜE encore of "Home Sweet Home" that I filmed from the elevated platform "Crües Nest" stage. 7.24.15.  Once in a lifetime memory right there.

Posted by Jean-Marcus Strole on Monday, July 27, 2015

 
This week on The MegaCast, we learn how to "Whip" and "Nae Nae"...as we plan on busting these dance moves out while in attendance at Monday Night Raw. Thanks to Tanch from HOT 103.7 for being our “teacher”.
 

 
Check out this week’s episode of The MegaCast here:
 


While listening to this week’s episode, we play audio from this cop with a crazy warning message to a crook.  Here is the video so that you can play along!

Steve Migs Blog 07/27/15 "Motley Crue Still Rocks!"

I love this clip!  It’s a great moment when a news anchor decides to share some info that was probably best left for when the cameras were OFF! 

A news team from Reno was reporting on Amazon beating Walmart in sales, and one anchor claimed the reason was Amazon sells love toys . . . and Walmart doesn't.  It got awkward, especially for his co-host.  Check it out.
 

 
Would anyone be shocked if the guy was reporting the news with no pants on?  I do have to say that is a rather interesting nugget of info.  His buddy is probably right!
 
What was up with the weather yestersay?  Hail?  What the hell!  Here is what was happening outside of our house…in slomo, because well… everything is cooler in slowmo!
 


 
Over the weekend I went to the Motley Crue show.  This is their final tour, so I figured that I should see them one last time (hell they were my very first concerst back when I was a teen), and man am I glad I went!  They were awesome.  Last time I saw them was a few years ago, and it was pretty bad… Vince’s voice was bad, the band was great…so I was nervous about this show.  I have to say, that he sounded great.  Yes, he can’t hit the notes he used to be abale to hit…but he sounded pretty good, and the entire show was a blast!
 
They started off with Girls, Girls, Girls…

 

 
This is such an underrated Crue song…Primal Scream...
 
 

Hell yes Motley Crue! - Steve Migs

Steve Migs Blog 07/24/15 "Ex's & Oh's Yo!"

The weekend is finally here! I have been digging a song by this new artist Elle King called Ex’s & Oh’s.  I love her voice…check out the video, there is quite a bit of beefcake in this video, but it’s still a cool video.
 

 
Now here is the part that will blow your mind.  Elle King is Rob Schneider’s daughter!
 

 
Yes, that Rob Schneider.
 
Today we were chatting quite a bit about Star Wars… and then I just came across this awesome video of chipmunks battling it out with light sabers!  It's two chipmunks, and thanks to special effects it looks like they're holding lightsabers, with audio  from "Revenge of the Sith".


 
May the force be with you…you cute lil’ creatures!

Steve Migs Blog 07/23/15 "Think Before You Print"

Today the guys gave me a hard time for something that was on the back of a paper I used for my news report.  I try and recycle paper so I don’t waste too much, and while I was doing news, BJ was distracted by what was on the other side of my weather report…
 


 
If you look up the word “awkward”, this video should be used as an example of the words meaning.

The LA Lakers had a press conference to welcome 3 new players to the team:  Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams, and Brandon Bass.  During the press conference, or “presser” as sports media will annoyingly call it, a reporter asked how they feel about playing with Kobe Bryant.  What you will see next (it starts at about 19 minutes in on the video) is 10 of the most awkward silent seconds I have ever seen…
 

 
Kobe is known for not being the most welcoming player…he has been dubbed “selfish” in the past…but wow…that silence says plenty!
 
Here is a crazy video that we came across this morning… a deer making an insanely odd sound.  Check it out!
 

 
Of course this led to people wanting me to do my best impression of this deer…here goes nothing!
 

We wound up talking about this story again later in the show...and they asked me to recreate the "magic":

Steve Migs Blog 07/22/15 "Lulu & Daniel Bryan"

So I posted a pic on Twitter yesterday, and then I put my phone down… come back to my phone later only to see that the picture got over 100 favorites and a bunch of retweets.  I quickly realized why… It never hurts to have WWE Superstar (and Aberdeen’s own), Daniel Bryan retweet the pic. 
Why would he retweet it?  Well this is why…
 


 
Lulu of course is very excited about her new found fame.  Next Thursday Daniel Bryan will be at Third Place Books in Ravenna doing a book signing.  He will most likely join us in studio…which I am very excited about of course!   I just started reading the book, and so far its an awesome read… I love how it’s based around the moments leading up to Wrestlemania 30 (where he won the title), but through it he shares many great stories from the past.

Today is the big day… “Sharknado 3 Oh Hell No!” will be on SyFy at 9pm.  We had Tara Reid & Ian Ziering on the show, which rules!  Sadly Tara didn’t share her shark theories like she did a couple years ago with our bud Josh Wolf on “Shark After Dark”…
