Welcome back to Syracuse Speaks! This podcast, hosted by Alex Ackerman, aims to bring more voices to the world of minor league hockey.
This week, Alex discusses her virtual tryout contract with the Syracuse Crunch. She praises the Crunch’s efforts to be there for their fans and keep them involved in the sport during this weird, difficult time. She then moves onto her prompt of the week: “Share a time when you didn’t get along with a teammate.” Since she doesn’t actually play for the team - VTO’s aside - she switched it up to something slightly different: “Share how you handle not liking a player.” In answering it, she addresses how the internet has changed the way fans communicate their frustrations, and how mental health can affect one’s view of the world (sports included).
As always, please leave any questions, comments, or feedback for her here or on Twitter!
