    Justin Morneau the hockey interview

    Posted by japanstats on 2009 April 27日 Monday

    Puck Prospectus has a fluffy interview with Minnesota Twin and Canadian Justin Morneau about hockey. Morneau was once a backup goalie on a major junior team before fully commiting himself to baseball (good choice).

    DL: Do you come across many hockey fans playing Major League Baseball?

    JM: There are quite a few, but it’s mostly the Canadian guys. I’ll talk hockey with [Jason] Bay or [Matt] Stairs, and there are some guys from the Michigan and Minnesota areas that know the game, and what‘s going on. I try to convert as many guys as I can into becoming hockey fans.

    While the American players get busy with fantasy football as the baseball season draws to a close, Canucks will talk hockey anywhere any time.
