This all started when Marissa Baker, a captain on Darien’s girls hockey team, tagged me this week on an Instagram posting for an account called Inside The Glass. Baker wanted me to check out some fun that teammates Cassidy Schiff, Courtney Lowe and Emily Gianunzio started last season, intra-team postgame interviews. When Baker broke a stick in a game, the two pieces became microphones.
After watching the post, and some contact with Schiff and Baker, we decided to make Inside The Glass a new feature on The Ruden Report.
Think Hard Knocks without a budget.
OK, that might be a little too much. Truth be told, we have no idea where this will go or if it will have any appeal beyond the team. We are going to have a meeting next week to better organize and plan going forward.
For now, Schiff, Lowe and Gianunzio are going to continue to interview teammates after games, with an eclectic mix of questions. Maybe more teams will want to try this. Maybe this is the start of a new Ruden Report talk show that will grow FCIAC wide.
Or maybe it will just be nothing more than the Darien players having some fun. We will see.
For now, here is the first episode of Inside The Glass.
