Tweet No. 1: At the rate guys are dropping out of this years All Star Game I might get a call. #NHL
SI.com: Would you want to go to the All-Star Game or would you rather just go to Vegas for the break?
BizNasty: I think it would be cool to go to any All-Star Game; at least experience it once. I would want to go to one. If I was a guy like Nicklas Lidstrom, where you get invited every year, it would get old because you just want that time off. I actually got asked to go this year and do media for the NHL, and I had some cool stuff planned, but it was hard for them to work it all out on short notice, so they said maybe we'd do it next year.
SI.com: So you'll have to suck it up and go to Vegas.
BizNasty: I'll go have fun there. But think about going out to a club in Canada during the All-Star Break. Think of how many girls are gonna be there because they know the hockey players are gonna be there. Either way, you're gonna have a good weekend.
SI.com: What is your craziest Vegas story?
BizNasty: You won't be able to print it.
Tweet No. 2: I didn't come to Monday Night RAW in Phoenix for the wrestling. I came to people watch.
SI.com: Was that your first time at a live wrestling event? How was it?
BizNasty: It wasn't my first time, but the people that are these wrestling events... This was my third one. I went to one in Wheeling, W. Va., when I played there. If you can picture wrestling fans in general and then take the bottom one percent of them in West Virginia, the things you see at these places... You don't even watch the ring. You're just always looking around, thinking, "Holy f---, man. Do people actually live like this." I also went a live show in Nashville once. I don't think in the whole crowd combined, you could've put together three set of teeth. But last Monday was the closest I've ever been to the ring. To hear these guys talk is pretty funny. That CM Punk guy was funny. He was making fun of guys. And I didn't mind that Broski guy. The guy from Long Island.
SI.com: Zack Ryder.
BizNasty: Yeah, him. He was funny. But, do you think these guys actually take themselves seriously or do they know they're just a clown?
SI.com: You know, the wrestling fans are rabid. You're gonna take major heat for these comments.
BizNasty: Oh, I don't care. You gotta take it for what it's worth. I do think it's entertaining.
Tweet No. 3: A 7 foot college athlete slam dunking a basketball was the top play on SportsCenter again this morning in case anyone missed it.
SI.com: Not impressed by dunks?
BizNasty: What a f------ joke.
SI.com: Does the lack of NHL coverage combined with the abundance of NBA coverage bother you?
BizNasty: It wasn't even about the lack of NHL coverage. It was about the dunks. They'll have like six dunks on the top 10 list. It's absurd. I just don't think dunking involves any talent. What are your thoughts on that?
SI.com: I agree a little bit. I pretty much banned dunk videos from Hot Clicks unless it's something really crazy and unusual. I just don't think they're anything special.
BizNasty: Yeah, I mean, how many times do you watch a dunk and you're like, "Wow, that was actually worth watching." How hard is it to dunk? I bet you 1/8 of the NHL could dunk a basketball. And those guys are 6-foot, not 7-foot. But if you make NBA player stick-handle a puck while someone is trying to hit you, then we'll talk.
Tweet No. 4: Hey @Jeremy_Roenick, I saw you visited #Jabs. Ya I'm sending him one of my jersey's as well. They had a lot of mine still in stock.
SI.com: Jabs is Jack Jablonski, a high school hockey player from Minnesota who was paralyzed after taking a hit during a game. Tell us about his situation.
BizNasty: The owner of my clothing company, Sauce Hockey, is from Minnesota, so he told me about this kid who was paralyzed on a check from behind. Since it hit so close to home, we thought, let's raise some money for him because the hospital bills will be brutal. So we started making T-shirts and we're over $20,000 raised for him. He's also a Twitter follower of mine, so I sent him a jersey.
Tweet No. 5: If everyones google search history looks like mine we live in a messed up world.
SI.com: Can you expand on that? Was it all adult stuff?
BizNasty: I was looking something up, and I just started going through my history and I was like, "holy s---, why did I ever Google THAT?" You just forget about why you looked something up. It wasn't all dirty stuff. It was just very random.
