Mats Sundin on "Sommar i P1"

Despite knowing that a lot of the things he was talking about is a bitter reality for anybody with a paycheck here (sales professionals, mgmt, etc.), it still left me with a "vemodig" feeling. No wonder he had a hard time making up his mind about retirement towards the end.

Too much music though. I would have loved to hear more about his career and choices he had to make in life along the road.

Right...

Interesting to hear about episodes from his life as a hockey player. Like getting grilled by Pat Quinn and how he got away with speeding when they were doing well in Toronto, but how things changed when things went against them etc.

Very interesting to hear about his view on the trade from Toronto that never happened and how he felt he deserved better for staying loyal and investing his soul in the organisation.

No mention whatsoever of DIF, which was expected but still disappointing to me.

Hardly any mention of Tre Kronor or Turin.

Interesting how, Mats Sundin of all people, chose music like Nationalteatern and Thåström. That made me chuckle.

Well, I believe he was born 1971, which I am too, so I'm sure he grew up listening to that music, as well as Ebba Grön, Imperiet, Noise, Uffe Lundell and whatever else we were thinking provided further options to the wave of Metal coming in from Great Britain and the U.S at the time..... Geez... The uncomplicated days of listening to Trax... with Madonna, George Michael, UB40, Rickfors, and what not.... Badrock!

"Dolce Vita, det ljuva, ljuva livet... "

Funny though.... I've been here for 20 years now, and left Sweden at the same age for a different sport, so I must say that some of the things he spoke about stirred up a lot things that one has accepted and/or maybe try to ignore. At any rate, he hit very close to home, which didn't necessarily leave me in a pina colada mood, but maybe that's even further proof of a great show on his part.

Damn. I've gone from really appreciating this hockey player to liking the guy.

You've been in the states for so long that I forgive you though, it's much worse when other swedes do it.

Every summer a bunch of swedish celebs each get to do a show on national radio where they get to talk about whatever they want and play whatever music they want. Sundin was among them this year.
