A great hockey blog by one of my favorite actors Tom Cavanagh

Tom is quite the athlete. I knew he played college basketball but did not know he was a minor league hockey player to boot!

A Night With (insert Beukeboom nickname here)
4-22-2007 13:05:06

So I'm at The Rangers game the other night and Jeff Beukeboom slides up besides me.

“BOOK!” I cry. “The Bookster! Booklearner! Jeffy! Jefferson Airplane!”

I continue, “Jay Bee! The Boomer! Boom City! Lower the BOOM!” We've never met.

There is an awkward pause.


“Mr. Beukeboom,” someone whispers. I look around for Jeff's Dad.

“No, him,” my buddy Rob says, pointing at Jeff.

“Oh,” I say, “Right. Hello Mr. Beukeboom,” I say to Jeff.

Jeff looks around. “Is my Dad here?” he asks. “Good one” I respond. “Sorry about the yelling.”

“The truth is,” Jeff says, “I've been called a lot worse” (by a lot better men than you). He doesn't actually say that last bit, but I suspect he's thinking it. “Here in New York if you do something good, they don't forget it.”

And he's right, of course. The other day I gave a panhandler $5 and he's now living in my attic. Weird, I know, but he makes a dang good egg soufflé.

Jeff, of course, is referring to the Stanley Cup season of 1994 when the Blueshirts put an end to the chants of “1940” and Beukeboom was a big, and I mean BIG reason why. He's the kind of guy you have to get a coupla bus transfers to get around. A block-out-the-sun kind of dude.

My buddy Rob asks to see his ring. Graciously, Jeff obliges but Rob fumbles the hand-off. We keep our cool though, “WHAT THE HELL D' YATHINK YOU ARE DOING YOU FREAKY FREAK?!” I scream at Rob as the ring descends to the bowels of Madison Square Garden. “ShutupShutupShutupShutup!” Rob screams back “Do you have a second to just SHUT UP!?!”

But thankfully, Jeff's quick hands save the day. We're mortified, but Beukeboom is cool. “It's OK fellas,” he says. “If I lose this one I still have 3 others.”

Nice.

Just then Michael Nylander scores his third goal of the game. Without thinking I grab Beukeboom's hat off his head and throw it onto the ice. He slowly turns and looks in my direction. The moment is definitely strained so I point at my buddy Rob.

And then we both run.
