Hard Hits airs every night at midnight for 30 minutes on Blog Talk Radio. Yours truly, Derek Felix hosts this action packed show along with the usual cast of characters who are always opinionated. No Goal Sports’ own Brian Sanborn, THW’s Chris Wassel, Dan Wheeler, Justin “JNF” Felix, John “JPG” Giagnorio, Rob “Kraze” Davis all contribute to the fabric of our show. The clash in personas makes for entertaining radio. Just don’t take us too seriously.
Last night, I was joined by Brian, Chris and Justin. The topic was the Rangers, who earned their first win of the new NHL season over Boston. Marian Gaborik scored a hat trick, including the OT winner. For more coverage of an exciting 4-3 game at MSG, please reference our hockey blog New York Puck. You can also catch plenty of Devils from contributor Hasan and maybe some Sabres from Brian when he feels up to it.
Tonight, it should be another fun show. I’m going to discuss the Victoria Azarenka controversy during her semifinal win over American upstart Sloane Stephens. As we covered in the previous post, did the Australian Open defending champ abuse the injury timeout to recover from an apparent panic episode? Plus we’ll preview what should be a blockbuster semifinal between Roger Federer and Andy Murray with the winner taking on two-time defending champion Novak Djokovic, who blitzed No.4 David Ferrer 6-2, 6-2, 6-1. All eyes will be on Feds and Andy to see who will take on Nole.
We’ll also do some hockey with the Rangers and Islanders both taking the ice tonight. The Blueshirts aim for their second consecutive victory when they face off against traditional rival Philly. The Islanders are in Toronto to battle the Maple Leafs. Can they build on their Martin Luther King Day win over the Lightning? Brian’s Sabres also are in action versus the Candy Canes at Raleigh for a home-and-home. Will buttons be pushed?
The Knicks and Celtics do battle in Beantown. Will Carmelo Anthony keep his cool against Kevin Garnett or will Honey Nut Cheerios spill over onto the court? The second meeting promises to be intense.
Catch it all later tonight.
