"Or Reno arena me but okay quick question you have to S.'s. And your first name at the end of Curtis I do. Is that what? What's the reasoning behind that? The story goes that my dad's mom when they had my dad's my dad's middle name is Curtis Glenn. Curtiss Patrick and apparently was so hopped up on painkillers. Or whatever it was post birth that she put two ends on Glenn and to us on Curtis it was supposed to be going. Curtis one n one s but she filled out the birth certificate form in whatever state she was in. Now we have a couple extra continents definitely makes you stand out. That's for sure and a double check spelled it. Yeah there aren't many Curtis's in general and then I can't find anyone to there's an airplane that's called the Curtis with two S.'s. But that's about all I. I never run into occur a two as well. Let's get into this this royal family of hockey. I mean let's go. Let's go down the list. Is it your great grandfather or your grandfather. Who started everything out? My great grandfather and his brothers started on out. And when you started it all out. What do you mean by that so It was lesser. And Frank were brothers and they were up in Canada and they had a bunch of money from logging they were actually loggers that their dead so they had they had a million or more dollars at a ton of money in those days early nineteen hundreds and so they started actual hockey league. Leicester played and frank played unless it was really good. He was one of the best players in Canada So they started their own league in the Pacific coast. It was called the Pacific coast. Hockey Association candidate Vancouver Western. They moved out to the Western candidates. Start there's a league Vancouver Area Victoria Vancouver Seattle. There's only three teams and While they were there you know hockey was there. Were no forward is there was no changing on the fly. There's glue line. So they invented all those things the things that I just said. They put numbers on the back of Jerseys and been at the playoff system that other sports picked up it was. It's crazy to read their biography and the things that they did for hockey and sports in general so then how did you not play hockey until you were eleven years old? That's the question I asked my dad every day. I'm jumping ahead. A couple generations so their your great grandfather is that Glennon Craig's grandfather correct. They were they close correct. Yeah they were. They were closed. And then my My grandfather so Glenn Craig's Dad Lynn. And His brother. Mas they were both NHL. There's they played in New York for a long time together. Actually what their dad less? You're coaching them. And they won the Cup you know. They won the cup in. I think it was the late forties and then New York had that decades five-decade drought or something like that won the nineteen forty ranges that they got teased Fox. Yeah Yeah Yeah so it. Was My grandfather. Coaching in his two sons are on the team. One of them was a hall of fame. Forward just a really good player in the other one was just an animal. He was just a savage beast. He was actually the heavyweight. Boxing champion of Canada played hockey so he was talking with them right now. Gone family of hockey. No I yeah it sounds like I'm namedrop and I'm just trying to give you a little bit of family tree. Oh on everyone needs to know that. We're we wanted this story to get out here. I'm as interested as anyone because you might have told me before I forget the whole thing how it went down so when they ever talked about why they invented like forward passing what made them think of all these rules. That still stands still today so from from what I understand and this is just from kind of what you hear past playing telephone with relative right right. I'm hearing stories. That were told. Their Dad was sold that their dead and Bought a same. Yes it could be a little bit of salt and pepper. I might add it some too but the game wasn't as fun as they wanted to be. It wasn't as exciting as they wanted to be. So you know instead of blowing the whistle so that all these tire guys can get off the ice or you know. Instead of waiting the puck goes in the stands and people are playing three minutes ships and dine out there. Why don't we have him? Just jump off and have you gotta jump on and then you're only passing backwards right then. There's only so much you can do. You're trying to go one on four and get by everybody so they made those changes which I think. I can't even imagine playing hockey and not being able to change on the fly. I was like a like a forty seconds on a shift. You could tell all yeah it was half you'd have all your around out there. I don't think there is a professional player. Who like getting his helmet? Knocked off more than Curtis Patrick. And then buzzing around there like one of those like the dogs that are really hair teddy pursell house but like with way longer hair. And you're just let y you when you when you were growing up. Was it instilled you to be a bit of a meathead head. 'cause when we played together like you you're not scared you might not win a lot of fights but you if a guy came out it was a fighter it was eject bought it. It's funny because like what set earlier. I didn't play hockey till was eleven but I was definitely brought up to not be scared to actually have a funny story that I'll tell but I don't know if my dad would appreciate you telling her not all school. We don't give a shit around. Yeah so I I was probably this was pre hockey. I think I was ten years old and I played baseball baseball at the time I was down at the baseball field and I would be at the baseball field on a Saturday from you know seven. Am until they stop playing games to whether I games or not I was just there and so my dad was there watching my sister play. I believe and he's sitting kind of in the bleachers about fifty yards from where I am and I'm over on the basketball court just playing kind of a pickup game and there are some guys. It's three on three so I've got my two buddies that I play baseball with and these guys have come from. I it's kind of a rough neighborhood that I live in where you could be in a good part of town or bad part of town unless it's kind of the bad part of town that were just beaten us up like every time someone would get the ball. They would tackle them or push to the ground lot. A lot of s bombs being dropped by these. I mean just Kinda not what you normally get at the Little League baseball field. You're pushing guys taking it. I mean I was. I was playing. I was playing hard but these guys are bigger and they were older and I wasn't. I wasn't getting wasn't much I could do get bullied. There wasn't a lot I could do. We were just getting bullied and so I look in the. I look up in the bleachers. At my dad's just kind of like what in the world is going on with these guys that and when I look in the bleachers. She's staring right at me and he's just pounding his fist. Like buddy you gotTa Punch someone in the face right now. He didn't have to say anything. He's just sitting on the bleachers pounding. His fist looking right at me. So the next time a guy whack me in the arm or whatever he did I just let him have it. Drop them through the ground and the three guys are immediately on me and then there's my dad pretending like he doesn't know who any of us are all right boys. Let's pretty good on the baseball field afterward. Oh he loved it and he's expired or six stories in my life. My Dad talks about him. Now you know now that it's their way past and he's like I was so crowded of you that day I couldn't tell you how product that day but I was so proud of you that that's so good you know the fact that when he was punching his fist it was more like. You'RE GONNA hit one of them or I'm going to hit you left. Well you gotTa take me to when you're how old are you now? You thirty three forty four. What I'm older than you guys. Yeah forty I just turned forty in October. You hit me so you got the same haircut is your old man now yes. It's not quite the shaggy dog. Slow that I went dead. How angry you when you get out of your state. You're like bobble it from NIP Tuck. I two years junior year post Grad. So I was I winced call. I was yeah I was twenty four. Yeah there's thirty I've I've you look great for forty congrats on that I'll I WANNA take back. I WANNA go back to when you were eleven years old and you're not even playing hockey and you find a book about hockey royalty and I picked you going through and be like wait a minute. That's my uncle grandfather. What what was the story there and when you found this certain yeah so the so. I'm in the. I literally had been at that time. I've been to to hockey games. I think it went to one in Washington where I have. My Dad's cousin has been the president of the Washington capitals for like forty years so I had gone to a game in Washington because it was about three and a half hour drive for us and I've been to one in New York City because my Uncle Craig was coaching the Rangers at the time and he was coach g And so in my mind when you went to a hockey game you just had a relative that was working for the team you know in the end it didn't it didn't really sink in. I didn't know I loved baseball. I was collecting baseball cards all the time. I went to these hockey game so I was like. Oh that's cool. They skate around on Ice Pretty Neat. And then when I was eleven I find a book in the bookshelf. And it says the Patrick's hockey's royal family and it was like. Oh that's interesting. That's our last name and so I read. I read this whole book. My Dad's not even home. I just can't put this book down and then I start seeing all these names that I recognized like Craig Patrick and Glenn Patrick and I'm like wait a minute. This is adult by family. And so my dad gets home. And I'm like that. What's going on with this book? And he's like. Oh yeah you know. We played hockey for a long time. And then I was like Oh. So that's what that thing is in the closet that stick and he's like yeah hockey. I never played Ro- roller hockey or Dak. I literally had not done anything with hockey at eleven years old and had that family background so like you were saying earlier. Why why is it good question? It's It's almost like it was a top secret family background. Yes well I was gay but some people I mean you. You can understand if a true legend like maybe doesn't want a son to play how you GonNa live up to that like. I don't know I could see an argument to both sides. Do you think it was maybe like. Like what are the chances? There's so much going to be so much pressure on him. Or what made it that? They didn't even have you ever even ask them. I've I've talked to him about it and at the time he had a restaurant a restaurant bar in Virginia and it was really really Taken up a lot of time for him my mom. My mom worked there too and only rank in Virginia. There was one place you could play. It was one hour away so for me to play. It was going to be a one hour drive each way. It was expensive..

He played in the coast for a few seasons. Had A couple of stints in the AHL finished his pro career with a season split between Wichita in Great Britain. That's a mixed flyer these days. He's a web developer. Welcome to the spitting checklists. Podcast Curtis Patrick today stars. That's a that's A. That's quite a half from fuck beating people up to a web developer. I call I used to have a website. Actually there was accidental dot com. Because it was not the the path that I planned on having my life go. I haven't talked to you in a while. On last time we were hanging out we were making absolute banger songs. Dropping them on Youtube is why space ship my space ship for those of you. I've been taking a little bit abuse online and try to bring it up many times. And You keep dodging it. I feel like I looked like a cringe asshole. Now one was that was kind of the role you're going for from in that one. I was I was looking for pretty much just ads. And you're the guy with the ads and that's what we need. We need some blends candy. That's all he brought. Nothing else. Dance moves you saw. The dancing is just in your body and flex and please do not open your mouth. Those directions video best. You remember when we videotaped part by the waterfront in wheeling it was like fifteen degrees in Wendy. It was absolutely freezing that day and I don't remember it must've been in February or March the water's I ain't the water levels. Were up where it was almost coming over the edge there I think they ended up having a flood. One of those years by the West Bank or Reno arena. Excuse me but Question you have to s in your first name at the end of Curtis I do. Is that what? What's the reasoning behind that? The story goes that my dad mom when they had my dad's my dad's middle name is Curtis Glenn Curtiss Patrick and apparently was so hopped up on painkillers. Or whatever it was post birth that she put to ends on Glenn and to us is on Curtis was supposed to be going. Curtis one n one s but she filled out the birth certificate form in whatever state she was in and now we have a couple of extra continent definitely makes you stand out. That's for sure I had a double check. That's how you spelled it. Yeah and there aren't many Curtis's in general and then I can't find anyone to there's an airplane that's called the curtis to S.'s. But that's about all I. I never run into a courtesy to us as well. Let's get into this this royal family of hockey. I mean let's go down the list. Is it your great grandfather your grandfather? Who started everything out? My great grandfather and his brothers started out and when you say started it all oh what do you mean by that? So the It was lester and frank brothers and they were up in Canada and they had a bunch of money from logging actually loggers that they're dead so they had. I mean I think they had a million or more dollars at a ton of money in those days early nineteen hundreds and so they started actual hockey league luster had played and frank played unless there was really good. He was one of the best players in Canada So their league out in the Pacific coast it was called it the Civic Hockey Association over Western so they moved out to the Western candidates start league. Okay Vancouver Area Victoria Vancouver Seattle. There's only three teams and While they were there you know hockey was there. Were no forward passes? There was no changing on the fly. There's no Blue Line. So they invented all those things. The things that I just said they put numbers on the back of Jerseys. The invented playoff system that other sports picked up it was. It's crazy to read their biography and the things that they did for hockey and sports in general so then how did you not play hockey until you were eleven years old? That's the question I asked my dad every day. I mean I'm jumping ahead a couple of generations. So if they're great grandfather then that's it is that Glennon Craig's grandfather correct did they. Were they close? Correct yeah they were. They were close. And then my My grandfather so Glennon Craig's Dad Lynn. And his brother was they were both. Nhl. There's they played in New York for a long time together. Actually What Their Dad less coaching them and they won the Cup you know they won the cup in. I think it was the late forties and the New York had that decades five-decade drought or something like that. The nineteen forty ranges that they got teased. Fof that yeah. Yeah so it was. My grandfather. Coaching and his two sons are on the team. One of them was a hall fame. Forward just a really good player and the other one was just an animal. He was just a savage beast. He was actually the heavyweight. Boxing champion of Canada played hockey so he was people who think you're talking with them right now because you're your family of hockey. No yeah it sounds like I'm name dropping. I'm just trying to give you a little bit of family tree on name topping. Everyone needs to know that. We're we wanted this story to get out here. I'm as interested as anyone because you might have told me before I forget the whole thing how it went down so when they ever talked about why they invented forward passing what made them think of all these rules that still stands still today so from from what I understand. This is just from kind of what you hear past playing telephone with relative right right. I'm hearing stories. That were told the their dad there was sort of their dead and bought not yes could be a little bit of Song. I might add some too but the game wasn't as fun as they wanted to be. It wasn't as exciting as they wanted to be. So you know instead of blowing the whistle so that all these tired guys can get off the ice or you know instead of waiting till the puck goes in the stands and people playing three minute shifts dying out there. Why don't we just jump off and have a new guy jump on and then if you're only passing backwards right then there's only so much you can do. You're trying to go one on four and get by everybody so they made those changes which I think. I can't even imagine playing hockey and not being able to change on the fly I was like I got the forty seconds on shift. You could tell. Yeah you'd have all your walking around out there to everyone else. Yeah I think there a professional player who getting his helmet knocked off more than Curtis Patrick and then buzzing around there like one of those like the dogs. Teddy pursell has like with way longer hair. And you're just let y you when you were when you were growing up. Was it instilled you to be a bit of a meathead. 'cause when we played together like you you were not scared you might not win a lot of fights but if a big guy came who was a fighter it was Jack but yeah it it. It's funny because like wit set earlier. I didn't play hockey till eleven but I was definitely brought up to not be scared to. I actually have a funny story that I'll tell that I don't know if my dad would appreciate me telling her not covered school. We don't give a shit around. Yeah so I I was probably this was pre hockey. I think I was ten years old and I played baseball all baseball all the time. I was down at the baseball fields and I would be the baseball field on a Saturday from you know seven.
