This was again sent to me by our friends with the Rangers. Adam Graves’ episode of Beginnings will air tonight after the game. Apparently he likes to play Frogger. I can give him a run for his money there. The release is below:
Tonight at 10:30pm, immediately following coverage of the Rangers-Islanders game, Rangers legend Adam Graves takes MSG Network back to his hometown of Toronto on the original series “Beginnings.” In the episode, Graves and his mom Lynda visit the former home of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Maple Leaf Gardens, which was turned into a grocery store and hockey center when the Leafs left in 1999. They also take a trip back to the house that he grew up in, which he hadn’t been to in 28 years.
“Growing up in Toronto, I think I was like a regular kid, like everyone else. I enjoyed skateboarding, and back in the day that was when Atari first came out and I remember ‘Frogger’ and all those different games that people had, so we used to play that with our buddies all the time. When I was at school I enjoyed playing football and soccer, track and field, I did some running, I mean, pretty much anything athletic or anything physical I was involved in, but hockey was my number one passion, without question.”
All-new episodes of “Beginnings” continue in February and March as former Ranger Nick Fotiu heads back to Staten Island on Tuesday, February 4 at 10:30pm and current Ranger Derick Brassard visits his hometown of Hull in Gatineau, Quebec on Tuesday, March 11 at 10:30pm.
