Kevin Smith on the Jumbotron

I searched and saw no mention of it and I doubt it winds up on Youtube, but right after the 3-0 goal Mark Schulz was interviewing Smith on the Jumbotron.

Smith: "Yeah, I got in ten minutes late, and the Oilers score three goals, I'm a good luck charm."

Schulz: "So what else did you do today?"

Smith: "Well, Kevin Lowe gave me a tour of Northlands... sorry, Rexall...Centre. I had the biggest chubby the whole time."

The whole arena BURST out laughing.

Schulz (trying not to laugh): "Then what did you do?"

Smith: "What happened between the two Kevins is best left unsaid."

In total, he was on the screen for a total of a minute- and half was occupied by Schulz making a dumbass statement about him making a hockey movie in Edmonton (Hit Somebody) and not knowing about the U of A Q&A. However, it was awesome. We need to fly him here from Jersey at least once a month just to attend games.

I've never been more stoked for a hockey related movie than Hit Somebody. Kevin Smith doesn't make bad movies, even the weaker ones he's made like Jersey Girl or Chasing Amy were still good movies.

i think he has since he mentioned it in his post that YOU quoted

Jersey Girl was not bad, it was just more of a chick flick and his hard core fans could not deal. but it was not a horrible movie. would i watch it a second time? no. but it was decent enough for a sunday rental.

LOL...I quit reading after I saw "Kevin Smith doesnt make bad movies". Sorry Donovan.

Like anything else, movies are subjective. IMO, Jersey Girl was bad and unwatchable. But Im not much of a Kevin Smith fan personally. Good for laughs but there isnt a whole lot of thought that needs to go into making jokes that are centred around cocks, masturbation, donkey sex, getting lifted.

I totally disagree about Chasing Amy being one of his weaker movies. It had an incredible tone to it, that made me for some reason, unbelievably sympathetic to characters in situations I could never dream up.

I actually prefer his writing to his movies. Silent Bob Speaks is pure comedy gold.


Some of my friends really love his comic books too, but I just dont follow that stuff any more.

I was one of the lucky ones who got to sit in the suite with kevin. Seems like a really cool guy. I got him to sign my Dogma dvd and he had an arrow pointed at Ben Affleck's face on the cover with "totally gay" written beside it.
He showed up a couple minutes late and all the seats were gone in the suite so we offerd to give ours up along with a few others but he said "*&^* it guys I'll sit on the stairs". He sat there during the whole game. He really is a Oiler's and hockey fan in general he was right into the game. He became an Oiler fan just last year from old dvd's and documentaries and has since studied the history of the Oilers and knows all about it.
He say's he'll be back in March to watch the Devils when they come to town.

Might have been part of the contest that was run to sit in a suite with Kevin Smith for the Oilers game on Nov. 23/09.

I could be mistaken though.

I was lucky enough to attend the game with my buddy Gunner8811. Great night, great guy who loves hockey. During the third period when we were all singing the good ol hockey game, he said he has to put that song in his movie. He also said that he loved the mix of music at rexall allot more than the metal played at other rinks.

Chasing Amy one of his worst? It's his best film; it manages to be hilarious and heartfelt at the same time and Jason Lee is awesome in it.

"Chasing Amy" is his best film. It's also the only movie where I can watch Ben Affleck's acting without wondering how this guy can still be riding the coattails of "Good Will Hunting" after all these years.

Agreed, that movie rules, I also like Chasing Amy and Clerks 2. Probably a few others too that I'm forgetting.

As a 21-year-old heterosexual male, I must admit I enjoyed the movie. Then again, it was on TBS(screw Peachtree TV)and I was sick. So perhaps that impaired my judgment?
