DB: Did sports play a big role at all for you in your life? CM: Yeah, I used to be a hockey player growing up and once I heard Guns N Roses I switched from collecting hockey cards to buying records. DB: Was there ever a moment in your life when you chose sports over music? CM: Well, early on, you know. I was always flip flopping between the two in my adolescence and preadolescence. Always into hockey, I was always a big hockey fan and always a big music fan. So, it was always both. DB: Well, now youre in a band with your brother and your cousin, so Im guessing you guys used to play a lot of ball hockey and mini-sticks together growing up like many other Canadian kids? CM: Yeah, we played street hockey a lot. (The Trews) DB: And has that carried over to you guys playing street hockey and mini-sticks on tour at all? CM: Oh yeah, we still play street hockey all the time! We just did a thing called pledge music that financed our latest record and one of the things you can pledge on was a 4 on 4 hockey game against the band. Were 1 and 1, we won in Medicine Hat and we lost just outside of Ottawa. DB: Any Canadian bands you think would give you guys a pretty good run? CM: I know theres quite a few really good players amongst the musicians. Gavin Brown who produced our record is a phenominal hockey player. Ive heard Gord Downie is a good goaltender and heard Alan Doyle is also a good goaltender. And Sam Roberts is a really good goaltender. To be honest, wed rank pretty low I think (Laughs). DB: Lots of talk right now about NHL expansion, maybe a team in Vegas, another team back in Quebec City. Would an NHL team work in the maritimes and where? CM: Yes. I think it should be Moncton because its more central. Halifax would be the one that everybody thinks it should be, but its kind of hard to get to and its a little remote. You actually have to turn off the highway because theres water there. But I think Moncton is central enough that youd get people from Halifax, Moncton, Fredericton, St. John, New Brunswick all going there for the games. DB: Lets say this hypothetical team happens and they name The Trews the global ambassadors, what would the team be called? CM: Oh, like Drake with the Raptors? (Laughs) It actually seemed to work for them though. Maybe well go with "We The East" (Laughs). (rockandrollreport.com) DB: Do you have strong feelings about whether or not a Canadian artist or band should play the Grey Cup halftime show? CM: Yeah, I think it shoulda been us. We were out there anyway on tour and they had that "great Canadian band, Imagine Dragons". DB: You shared the stage with Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones back in 2005. Do you have a cool Stones story, maybe a cool interaction or moment you had with one of the members? CM: Well, first of all it was really cool to meet them, we played a small venue that night called the Phoenix in Toronto. And we watched them all arive, we were up in the dressing room and watching from the window as they all arrived in separate Rolls-Royces at the side of the Phoenix. And then during the set they were watching the gig and got to meet them afterwards and Mick came over to me and was like, "Howd it feel? Howd it feel? Howd it feel?" And I didnt know what to say other than it just felt really crazy. It was an awesome night. View image | gettyimages.com DB: So, Russell Brand kind of stole your thunder… CM: Ya, of all the people to steal your thunder! DB: (Laughs) Hes acknowledged you guys at least... CM: He only acknowledged us once. Weve sent him some songs, but the thing weve done as revenge to Russell Brand is that we have reports from the road called "The Russell Brand" report. So, everytime we update fans from the road we call them "The Russell Brand Reports". DB: Thats awesome! CM: Obviously, hes got a much bigger reach than us internationally, but I just thought it was funny that of all the times over the years of promoting the name The Trews everywhere. And then finally one day everybody is talking about Russell Brand, you google The Trews and its this guy going on about his feelings on the news of the day. I dunno, I dont think hes necessarily equipped to lead the revolution. Hes a drug addicted comedian, and thats fine, but its good that hes saying the right things. I mean, I agree with some of his politics, but were a little bit put off by him. DB: So, what youre saying is that you guys wouldnt cover one of "Infant Sorrow" bands songs? CM: No, Absolutely not. DB: So, youre playing Massey Hall Thursday night, doing half acoustic and half electric. Was this inspired by Bob Dylan doing the same thing at Massey Hall back in 1965 at all? CM: Did he do that? DB: Yeah, he did the beginning in acoustic and everyone loved it, but then he did the second part electric and the "music purists" in the crowd were pissed off... CM: Well, hopefully that doesnt happen to us! (Laughs) Its not quite the same thing anymore, eh? This is an idea that weve been floating around for a long time and were really excited to play Massey, where weve never graced the stage as a band. And we wanted to make it special and one thing weve been known for over the years is having a pretty over the top rock show, but also a really good acoustic show and weve been doing both simultaneously touring a couple times. And this will be the first time weve done it back to back in the same night. So, well be opening for ourselves, as well. Its a nice long night of music that doesnt feel that long. TONIGHT is the night! See you at #MasseyHall #Toronto! #risetomassey @SoundboardTO pic.twitter.com/XOPTUSPsiW — The Trews (@thetrews) December 11, 2014 DB: Can you go BarDown? CM: Ohhhh, it wouldnt be on purpose. It would probably be an accident. In fact its funny, we were on tour with this band called The Glorious Sons and in one of the basements of a bar in Lethbridge that we were playing there was a hockey net set up. And there was actually no light in there, we had to use flashlights. And they had one of those things that block the net, that simulates a goalie and it has little holes in the corners. And I actually called one top left corner and I hit it! DB: Is that on YouTube? CM: Not yet, but were going to be putting it up in a tour compilation soon. ---- After the interview, Colin and I were talking a little more hockey and he had a pretty cool story about how he became a Leafs fan. Im paraphrasing here, but roughly he said, "When we moved out to Toronto to play music, we were a cover band at local bars around the city, and our audience size depended on whether the Leafs won or not. We wouldnt be allowed to play until after the game and if they won, everyone would stay and keep drinking and be lively and when they lost everyone would just go home. So, naturally we just started cheering for them to win. A little bit selfish, but thats how I became a Leafs fan."

"Im excited just for a new start, just to see where things are going, to bring some kind of tradition back to the team and guys being excited about something new," the defensive back said during a conference call Monday after agreeing to stay with the Bombers rather than go to free agency next month. Wholesale Houston Rockets Jerseys .com) - The Grand Slam season will get underway Monday at the Australian Open in Melbourne, where a new champion will be crowned this year.NEW YORK, N.Y. - In nearly 800 NBA regular-games, Carmelo Anthony had never played in one like this. It didnt matter. Eliminated from post-season contention for the first time in his 11-year career, Anthony said it was tough even coming to the arena on Sunday night. "But mentally, you just had to put yourself in that mindset. Although youre not playing for nothing, if you suit up, youve still got to go out there and play ball," Anthony said. He and the Knicks did it well, getting 20 points from Tim Hardaway Jr. and beating the Chicago Bulls 100-89. No longer with any hopes of their own, the Knicks snapped the Bulls seven-game winning streak and dropped them back into a tie with Toronto for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference with two to play. "We let a big game slip tonight. It was probably the biggest game of the season," Bulls centre Joakim Noah said. "Disappointing the way our mentality wasnt good today, but overall we just wont have time, just got to let this one go, get ready tomorrow." Anthony and J.R. Smith each had 17 points for the Knicks, who were eliminated Saturday when Atlanta beat Miami, ending New Yorks run of three straight post-season berths. Anthonys first season without a post-season comes as he prepares to become a free agent in July. He had a hard time looking ahead beyond the next two games — which he isnt even sure he will play in because of nagging shoulder pain that he might get checked. "Its just hard for me to even think past tonight, right now, at this moment," Anthony said. "Everything is just, for me, just cloudy. Ive never been in this situation before. I dont even know what to say about this situation." A 54-win division champion last season, they believed they were built to play deep into the spring, so confident in what they had that Amare Stoudemire said the expectations should have been even higher. "On paper, we might be the best team in the league," he said before the game. "Weve got great players on this team whove accomplished so much. We just couldnt put it toogether.dddddddddddd" Noah had 13 points, 17 rebounds and nine assists for the Bulls. Jimmy Butler scored 17 points, but Chicago was just 6 of 22 (27 per cent) from 3-point range. "Defensively, we werent very good," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I liked the fight to come back. I thought we made some good plays down the stretch and we missed some wide-open 3s that you live with." The Knicks led 45-39 at halftime, then Smith hit consecutive 3-pointers and Raymond Felton made one for a 9-0 spurt that opened a 60-46 advantage, and the lead reached 67-50 when Anthony nailed a 3. Chicago was down 17 again with 7 1/2 minutes to play before finally making a push, cutting it to 93-87 when Taj Gibsons three-point play capped a 15-4 run. But they repeatedly misfired from the perimeter, preventing them from getting any closer. The Knicks have played well in March and April, beating Toronto on Friday, but its too late after they had already fallen to 21-40. "Being the coach, I just apologize to the fans, because again, they pay their hard-earned money to come out and see us play and we didnt come into this season expecting this," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. Whatever expectations the Bulls had were gone after Derrick Rose was lost to season-ending knee surgery in late November and Luol Deng was traded on Jan. 7. But Chicago has not only regrouped but flourished, bringing an Eastern Conference-best 35-14 mark in 2014 into Sundays play. But they will need help now — perhaps from the Knicks, who host Toronto in Wednesdays finale — to get the No. 3 spot, since the Raptors would get the tiebreaker as a division champion. Chicago closes against Orlando on Monday and at Charlotte on Wednesday. Notes: The game was originally scheduled for a 1 p.m. start and be shown nationally on ABC, but was booted shortly after the Bulls 109-90 rout of the Knicks in Chicago on March 2. The Indiana-Oklahoma City game was shifted to that marquee spot. ... Chicago was trying for its first eight-game winning streak since Feb. 20-March 7, 2012.
