Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown: Tuesday, November 10, 2009 (5:00-7:00)

Host: Bob McCown
Co-Host: Stephen Brunt
Guests: Nick Kypreos, Chris Polian, Lou Lamoriello, Darren Rovell, John Ourlan.

Geez Brunt - that IS a huge wallet!!

Congrats to Lamoriello. The listeners got a great glimpse into how Lou has become so successful. If the Devils can do it, there should be no reason other teams can't be as successful, provided they have someone with the vision and commitment Lou has. …and therein lies the difference between the success of the Devils compared to so many other teams.

"Even though this game is more difficult with regards to the CBA, etc, hopefully we'll never have to go through another re-building situation. Foremost, you recognize this is a team game and you can’t let your fellow players down. You should never, never allow yourself to have to look yourself in the mirror and feel you let the team your down. Players can't cheat yourself - whatever god has given you, and your parents have given you, that's something you were born with. If you don't cheat yourself, I know you won't cheat the organization and cheat the people that are given you the opportunities. I'd summarize it in 3 words - Loyalty. Work ethic. Being competent." Hell, I was motivated by Lou's words to type that all out. Very inspiring words, even outside of hockey.

For the greatest laugh, check out the Rovell interview, especially about food eating competitions…funny, funny stuff!
