Mic'd Up with Boychuk

You know the fun game of saying, “…in bed” after you read a fortune cookie? For whatever reason, during Friday’s Checkers game I remembered this little gamet. Mic’d up with Zach Boychuk was playing on the Jumbo Tron during second intermission. I turned to my Raleigh Roadtrippers a few seconds in and said, “The sounds of Boychuk’s bedroom.” Commence out-of-control, tears-down-your-face laughter. We were losing…we needed a moment of comic relief.

Before I dive into my favorite quotes, allow me make a point. I completely adore the Checkers’ organization and the material they produce. Fans agree, we all adore Ask the Checkers and Mike & Mike Mailbag. I’m also confident Boychuk is a good sport, so hopefully no egos are harmed by the making of the article.

Ok, here is the video BUT do not watch it. Just listen with the thought, “Sounds from Boychuk’s bedroom.” I included my favorite lines below in case you missed them. Huge thanks to the Checkers and Chuk for the entertainment!

“You’re a wall back there, eh Geff?”

“Great job Faulker, doing it again!”

“Off the dinger.”

“Clean up the garbage Matsie.”

“Oh, that was a muffin.”

“Come on Pogge, you’re not that good.”

“You got it Osk, you got it!”

“Siiiick.” {with giddy laugh}

“Good rebound control Geff.”

“Oh yeah, didn’t see that one, eh?”

“Just a little high.”

“Oh, yep…thank you!”


“I get to go with Mike McKenzie…I’m so excited. Hopefully Bob taught him some of his skills.”

“You may have to redo your hair, those highlights are coming through.”

“Thatta boy, Ris, you’re a killer.”

“Hey, keep it down Dodge!”

“I’ll do the one on the left.”

“That was a power move, eh?”

And finally…

“I hope the cameraman got that one.”

For the love of all things holy…thank you. Thank you Checkers, and thank you Zach Boychuk. I haven’t laughed that hard in months.
