I watch The Happening, non-ironically about once a month. Whenever I need a good laugh I will throw it on. It makes me so damn happy.

Oh, I like the sound of that. I am a big podcast guy. I am always rotating various shows in and out. The Game of Thrones shows I really like are all based at TheRinger.com. The Binge Mode podcast and Ask the Maester sessions are always very informative. As someone who didn't read the books, I am always trying to get different angles to watch the show. I can't be content just going along for the ride. Lol!

1. Hey, I am Sam Blazer. I am a staff writer at 1st Ohio Battery. I write for a couple of other sites and try to stay busy with new endeavors. I like golfing and taking care of my dogs.

2. It may not be the best Blue Jacket memory in the world but it still feels like it was yesterday. Back in January 2009 as a birthday present my dad got me lower bowl tickets to a CBJ vs. Red Wings game at Nationwide Arena. My brother, my father and myself settled into our seats and before I knew it, Rick Nash is having an all-time game. Capping off his hat trick in overtime to beat one of the more impressive teams in the modern era.

The best part though, was unbeknownst to me, my younger brother was pocketing hats that were being thrown down from the upper bowl. We all get home and he starts pulling out hat after hat after hat. We asked him why he did it and his response was simple, "I thought we all won free hats."

Needless to say, he wasn't a big hockey fan and didn't know the tradition.
