MayorsManor Live Radio with Colin Hanks, hockey fan first

Through the years we’ve had a variety of guests on the MayorsManor show – including prospects, current players and several NHL legends. Today is no different, although we’re going in a slightly different direction. Instead of talking to one of the guys on the ice we’ll be joined by somebody who watches from the stands.

Colin Hanks is best known as an actor, however he’s also a huge sports fan. Specifically, he’s been following the LA Kings for about 25 years now. So, we’ll go back in time and see what some of his earliest hockey memories are. As you’ll quickly find out, he’s not a casual fan. Some might say he’s actually obsessed with hockey because his knowledge runs deep.

We’ll talk about his favorite players, teams he doesn’t like (hint: he has strong opinions about the Ducks and Coyotes), the Kings playoff run in 1993 vs the Maple Leafs, their Stanley cup victory this year, watching games at Madison Square Garden, several problems he’s had with the NHL over the last two decades and much more.

Hanks also often tweets about his love for the San Francisco Giants.  Don’t worry, we’ll hit that topic as well.

On the acting front, we’ll dig into a few of his movie roles and see if he knows about Barry Melrose’s obsession with the hit show Dexter. Plus, Hanks waxes on about Big Lebowski quotes and even tells us about a pet project he’s been working on the last few years, a documentary about Tower Records. If that’s not enough for you, the NoCal native also promises to tweet out a photo once the lockout ends. What’s the photo of, you ask? Listen and find out!

Overall, we think it was one of our best shows ever!

Additional programming notes – Earlier this week, new Kings assistant coach, Davis Payne, also joined us and we covered a lot of ground. Don’t miss him sharing stories about his playing days with Bill Ranford, Mark Hardy, Mark Bavis and many others. He also talks about Dustin Penner trying to bribe him and interviewing on Darryl Sutter’s ranch this summer. Give it a listen here. The full list of our recent shows – featuring guests like Alec Martinez, Colin Fraser and Kevin Westgarth – can be seen here.
