Since the first interview in the Know a Writer series was so well-recieved, how could I not do more?

Our next featured sports writer has recently made a transition to baseball, but has been one of my favourite hockey writers for a while now. As a weirdo with a YouTube channel, I am drawn to people who think outside of the traditional box. Jesse Spector is one of those fresh thinkers.

Now you can get to know him.

Train with Gary Roberts & Steven Stamkos

Gary Roberts.

Usually when you come face-to-face with a glare like that, it means you done goofed, or you play for Ottawa. Now it could be because you’re training with him and Steven Stamkos.

Wait what?!?! Oh, you heard me.

Gary Roberts as in the man-beast who terrorized the league for parts of three decade. Steven Stamkos as in the guy who sniped 60 goals in a season. You could be hanging out with these guys. Well, not really “hanging out,” per se. Allow me to explain…

The offseason is getting shorter and shorter. You can’t just let your fitness go to crap in the summer, because once the season fires up again, you’ll look like a pylon out there.

Enter: the last team standing

The Nike Hockey Facebook experience at www.lastteamstanding.ca lets players create a team with their friends and show how they’re dedicating the summer to training. The page has training videos designed by Gary Roberts, and Toronto’s strength and conditioning coach from 2002-2009, Matt Nichol. Obviously, these two guys know their stuff.

But Steve, what’s in it for me? I’ll tell you, whatever your name is!

Something we do on occasion on this website, is comment on the work of others. Cam does a wonderful job with that sort of thing, like with his recent post on the Greg Cronin interview that went viral Thursday morning. This is a little different.

I love making highlight videos and montages. I get to see the work of the incomparable Tim Thompson aka b0undless at CBC, I helped make a few in my brief stint at the NHL Network to close out the 2013 season, and I like to make them for fun, as well.

This is the greatest video I have seen on the Toronto Maple Leafs in a long, long time.
