Mud half-way up my calf. Rain soaked clothes. Legs filled with lactic acid from some ill-advised soccer-based sprinting the day before. Death metal ripping through a mild-hangover. Not a typical Sunday for this guy. A typical Sunday is more like this: coffee, walk dog, watch TV, rinse, repeat.
However, when the opportunity to interview Buffalo Sabres Super Fans Rob and Paul from legendary metal band Cannibal Corpse came up, how could I say no? The last time Metal Blade Records lined me up with a music/sports interview, it ended up being the highlight of my (very) long and (moderately) illustrious reporting career – talking football with Oderus Urungus of GWAR. (Parental Warning: fake schlong hits reporter in leg, hilarity ensues – watch here).
