For Episode 61 of Tendy Talk presented by the BLPA Podcast Network and The Hockey Podcast Network, I chat with former Brother Rice High School of Chicago teammate and current candidate for Vista City Council in Vista, CA, Dan O’Donnell. I was a junior Dan’s freshman year – his first year playing organized hockey. It was fun to watch him grow the two years we were teammates and to see the program climb the summit of the Chicago Catholic Hockey League by winning the Kennedy Cup Dan’s senior year.

You forget how much time you spent with teammates until you reminisce like Dan and I did in this episode. It’s also cool how we can go over 20 years without speaking other than comments back and forth on social media and pickup right where we left off the last time we were in a locker room together.

Be sure to follow Dan on social media, and enjoy the episode.
