In Part 2 of our conversation with D2 director Sam Weisman, he talks about wanting to kill himself after seeing the first edit, why Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is in the film, having to be the person to tell Melissa Etheridge she'd been cut from the movie, the crazy first test screening and much, much more. Show Notes Here are two quick shots from the trailer regarding the beach scene: We talked about the America the Beautiful sequence in Episode 139 with J.A.C. Redford. One of Sam's proudest scenes, the locker room speech: One of the most difficult scenes? The three-bar game between Wolf and Bombay: Emilio's hair as an homage to Pat Riley Kareem just in the movie because Sam wanted to hang with him: George of the Jungle is a classic. Thanks to @quackscuses93 for the #QuackQuestion. A special shoutout because her Twitter bio is "for kids who want to coach." Was any of the tension between the OG Ducks and New Team USA real off-screen? Were there any cliques that formed between the kids who had been there before? #QUACKQUESTIONS— Dani (@quackscuses93) May 19, 2019

D2: The Mighty Ducks director Sam Weisman talks mob connections, idiot PAs, lost footage (Part 1)
Mike, a slightly late Tommy, and Kevin talk with D2: The Mighty Ducks director Sam Weisman in part one of one of the best interviews the show has ever done.

Show Notes Thanks again to Sam Weisman. He's one of the greats. By the way, Sam has a great IMDB photo: Photo by Avnet/Kerner Productions We talked with D2 director of photography Mark Irwin, who got his start in porn, in Episode 65.

That's too late. Terrible coaching by Orion. Thanks to @erock3382 for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod guess this is sort of a crossover Quack Question courtesy of cable TV. Which feat is more impressive/improbable.

Mighty Ducks of Thrones: Who ends up on The Iron Throne?
Mike, Tommy and Kevin return and waste no time using a cheap gimmick to try to get some listens. In this episode they take the Mighty Ducks to the world of Game of Thrones. Who fits in where? Who is dead? Will Julie "The Cat" Gaffney win this just like she wins the rest of our hypothetical contests? Show Notes The link to the trivia pentathlon quiz. The high score right now is 6 out 10, which has been accomplished by multiple people. Final week to get it in. Entries are due by April 24, 2019. Kevin running into a random women wearing a Mighty Ducks jersey in Minneapolis: Lake Calhoun, now called Bde Maka Ska, is the largest lake in Minnesota. There is a park around it. That's nice. Here is Calhoun Lake on the map. If we take that and graft it on Hans' map: It looks like we're looking at either District 6, which would be Hawks territory, or District 5, depending on what side of the lake Kevin's AirBnB was on. In fact, Lake Calhoun is probably the lake Hans refers to when he says "the lake is now the boundary." Bombay's address (450 N. Hennepin Ave.) is northeast of the lake, while Edina is southwest. This is what Tommy is referring to regarding the AAF.

Kevin is still wandering around the streets of Minneapolis in sadness after Texas Tech's loss in the NCAA national championship game and he has our microphones in his condo, so we've got a rebroadcast this week: the first appearance by our great friend Jack White who dished on a little bit of everything.

Matt Doherty rejoins the podcast after a two-year hiatus. He gives a first-hand account of the recent Mighty Ducks reunion in Anaheim, before talking about his album, which is actually good and not just an actor trying to be a musician. We also get into some D4 talk. Show Notes Support Matt! Go to Matt on Instagram: @archiedohman. Go get Matt's Album, Dignity. You can get the whole thing on iTunes for $9.99. That's a steal.

Mike, Tommy, and Kevin tackle another Mighty Ducks minute. This time it's a breakdown of Gordon Bombay's speech after the U.S.A.'s 12-1 loss to Iceland. Bombay gets challenged by a bunch of 12-year-olds and claps back. Was that the right move? Show Notes Spring is coming. Get your gear from The Quack Attack shop now. Ken Wu's face while everyone else is disgusted: One of two closeups for Goldberg: Little Charlie is crushed: TFW Bombay calls you pathetic, Portman vs. Fulton versions: Donald Trump Jr. vs. Gordon Bombay. Who wore it better? The Miracle sprints scene That happened in real life. And the U.S. beat Norway 8-0 the next day. But the "I play for the United States of America" thing didn't happen according to Jack O'Callahan. The 1980 U.S. Olympic team did indeed beat Finland to win the Gold Medal.

What’s behind the Mighty Ducks’ pop culture resurgence?
In the aftermath of the Mighty Ducks' mini reunion, Mike, Tommy and Kevin trace the influx of Ducks stuff in pop culture. Was this inevitable or did have we just witnessed an incredible confluence of events? Also, how much credit should we take for it? Show Notes (Editor's note: Our recording software skipped like four seconds at the beginning when we were introducing Kevin's Kin Token disaster. You can follow his slow-motion disaster in real time here.)  According to their Wikipedia, Wheeling's ECHL team is named the Nailers because of the city's long history of nail manufacturing. The Danny Tamberelli instagram photo with Fulton Reed's jersey in the background:   View this post on Instagram   What a sweet day!!

In this Best of 2018 rebroadcast, Scott Whyte joins the podcast to talke about how he went from a Slim Jim commercial with Macho Man Randy Savage to playing both Gunnar Stahl and Scooter the goalie.

The 2018 #QuackQuestion of the Year nominees
We've arrived at the end of the year, which means it's time for the fourth annual #QuackQuestion of the year. The five nominees were hand selected by Mike. Vote for your favorite in the poll in this episode's show notes at Show Notes Editor's note: Sorry for the terrible introductory audio. I recorded it on my phone at 6:30 a.m. The #QuackQuestion of the year nominees (poll is below): Ben Young (with assists from Andy Tattersall and Kristian Garcia): (To Scott Whyte) Why did you decide to stop on the shootout and do a slapshot? (And what was the point of doing a triple deke if you were got to stop and let the goalie reset? And how come it took so long for everyone to know whether or not it went in?) -- Episode 157 @MariaPianelli: (To Adam F. Goldberg) If you could cast one of the Ducks to be in The Goldbergs, who would it be, who would they play, and why? -- Episode 165 @AirLemaire: Assuming that the Ducks beat the Varsity team in the middle of the season in D3, what happens to the Varsity team for the rest of the year? Does their championship streak comes to an end? Is it possible to recover from that loss? -- Episode 167 @StevieYanks: Who was more vital to their team's success: Adam Banks, Juan Morales, The Icebox or Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez -- Episode 174 @prayformilan: Die Hard aficionados strongly believe that the film is a Christmas movie, and Steven E. de Souza (one of the writers) confirmed this. Shouldn’t Quackalytes fight for Mighty Ducks to be considered a Christmas film as well? -- Episode 180   (Editor's Note: You can vote once per hour.)

Did Gordon Bombay have a realistic chance at the NHL?
Mike, Tommy and Kevin take a look at Gordon Bombay's realistic chances of cracking an NHL roster at age 29 (or older). It requires an in-depth look into Bombay's injury, his questionable recovery and the time range between his injury and the start of the Junior Goodwill Games. Show Notes Be like Kevin.

Not impossible but definitely rare for a 29 or 30 year old to make the NHL #quackquestion — Dan R (@DannyHockey12) November 29, 2018 It's a bit tough to see but this USA TODAY cover from after the Trinidad and Tobago game says Tuesday March 1, 1994: The weather when Bombay returns to Minneapolis. It's rainy: The full quote from the announcer on Bombay being "one step away from the NHL": "What a story this is. He went from a legal career to coach the Minneapolis Mighty Ducks to a state peewee championship last year. And this year, at age 29, he's one short step away from the NHL."

Mike, Tommy, Kevin welcome in Twin Cities legend Phil Vandervaart to talk about painting all the signs for the Mighty Ducks films.

Evaluating the Mighty Ducks trailers and its apparent breakout star (Hint: it isn’t Charlie Conway)
Mike, Tommy, and Kevin go back in time -- even further than usual -- to take a look at the trailers for each film in the Mighty Ducks trilogy. They discuss why one Duck is highlighted in all three trailers, the suspicious absence of Charlie Conway, the great deal Emilio Estevez's agent made, and more.

Mike, Tommy, and Kevin outline what happens when the Mighty Ducks are dropped into the newest 90s Horror Film: 'Duck Hunter'. The legendary monster 'McKill' is terrorizing the camp ground the Ducks are staying at. McKill: He's doing his job. Show Notes A showcase of Chris Sacca's travels with Steve Brill. 🏒🏈⚽️🏒🏀⚾️ YES!!

Looking at the Mighty Ducks movies through Adam Banks’ eyes
Mike, Tommy and Kevin, go back through the Mighty Ducks films -- mostly D1 -- and break it down through Adam Banks' eyes. In the process they realize what a lonely life Banks leads as his new team doesn't accept him and his old team turns on him. Show Notes To be clear: Mike FORGOT an undershirt at Tommy's wedding. He didn't just choose not to wear it. The floss dance has its own Wikipedia page. What a time we live in. Adam Banks, bored after beating the Mighty Ducks, and maybe a little scared of Reilly. The Hawks beat District 5: We talked about why the Hawks didn't play the Mighty Ducks in the first round in Episode 10. Here is the table we came up with based on district location: It was actually Tommy Duncan who gives a weird face as he walks out on Adam Banks: Thanks to Erik for the #QuackQuestion via email: Dear Mike, Tommy, and Kevin, First, congratulations and best wishes to Mike on your marriage! Here is my Quack Question for you... Why does Bombay keep popping aspirins at the first District 5 game against the Hawks in D1? Does he have a headache from all the stress of dealing with kids and having to play against Riley? Or is he paranoid about having a heart attack like the previous District 5 coach? Best Regards, Erik (with a K) Bombay popping aspirin: Gear up for fall at The Quack Attack Shop. Recapping Adam Banks' journey in D1 -He plays with his friends on the Hawks and he dominates. -A weird old guy he's barely heard of rips him away from his friends because the old guy wants Banks to play for his team. The old guy apparently is a former Hawks star. As the adults try to work this out, Banks' dad and coach rip this old guy mercilessly. -In the name of just playing hockey, Banks relents and figures he might be able to learn something from this former star. His friends immediately turn on him. At the same time, his new teammates don't accept him. -Once he finally gets most of his new team to accept him, he gets hurt and misses the rest of the biggest game of his career to that point. After he is injured and carried off the ice, his new teammates immediately forget about him and there is no talk of him at all the rest of the night.

Michael T. Ryan, supervising music editor for all three Mighty Ducks films, explains what he covered up, why there is so much Queen
(Editor's note: We had a bit of trouble with the audio. First, Mike didn't have Michael T. Ryan's line recording, so you miss the first bit of what he says. Michael says he has a degree in music education from Oklahoma State. He went out to California to be a high school band director. The audio picks up from there. You miss about 20 seconds of Michael talking.  Also, Michael's line cuts out a couple times. Bear with it. He comes back quickly each time.) Michael T. Ryan, supervising music editor for all three Mighty Ducks films, joins the show and talks about how he ended up there. He explains what parts he's particularly proud of and the gift he got for being one of the few to survive all three films. Show Notes Here is Michael T. Ryan's IMDB.  Disney snuck a nice Queen song in there at the end of D2: Here is the end of the original Mighty Ducks, in which Queen's "We are the Champions" played instead of the big score suite that Steve Brill wanted: We talked with composer David Newman in Episode 61. This is the great score that Michael alluded to: Here are some of Michael's favorite pieces of work that aren't an obvious: 101 Dalmatians. A sampling: Others: Holy Man, Source Code, Sherlock Gnomes. Here is the opening score for Source Code: Sneaky Pete is a good show. It has a 93 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Thanks to @bberg19 for the #QuackQuestion: The "We Will Quack You" sequence in D2 has kind of weird audio, almost like you realized how lame it was and tried to bury the chant behind the Queen song. Is that how it actually went down? — Bryan (@bberg19) October 2, 2018 Here is the scene Brian describes in his question: We  Will Quack You up on the electronic board: The musical moments for each new player that Michael established: Here is work on SEAL TEAM on CBS as well as in the kids movie Sherlock Gnomes. It's got a fun soundtrack.

What happens at Connie Moreau and Guy Germaine’s wedding?
In honor of Mike's wedding, the group takes a look at the most likely Mighty Ducks wedding: the union of Connie Moreau and Guy Germaine. Which Ducks stand up in the wedding? Who makes a speech? Who don't Connie and Guy invite and who crashes it anyway? Show Notes Make fun of Kevin's terrible investment, and monitor it in real time. Our best (and possibly most-recent?) Ducks wide-hypothetical came in Episode 79: What happened at the Mighty Ducks prom? Is this Guy's main crew? The Mighty Ducks in Guy Germaine and Connie Moreau's Wedding Party: Guy Germaine: Groom Connie Moreau: Bride Gordon Bombay: Officiant Jesse Hall: Best man Charlie Conway: Groomsmen Dave/Les Averman: Groomsmen and he gives an excellent toast Julie Gaffney: Bridesmaid Terry Hall: Usher Other Ducks and what they do at Connie Moreau and Guy Germaine's Wedding: Tammy Duncan: She is on the border line of the invite list, but attends as a result of being Terry's date. Tommy Duncan : He gets a pity invite  due to Tammy and attends. Adam Banks: Guy and Connie invite him mostly because he's famous. He ends up attending but leaves early. Adam Banks' parents: They send a nice gift instead of actually attending Dwayne Robertson - He attends and he gives a delightful little speech. Greg Goldberg - He and his parents are invited. They all not only go, but cater the event. They give Connie and Guy a great deal on the food. Dean Portman - Connie vetoes his invite, but he learns about it from somebody else -- probably Fulton -- and crashes the wedding. Luis Mendoza - The couple doesn't invite him due to a possible fling he and Connie had, but he ends up going anyway as the date of a bridesmaid. Fulton Reed - He attends and is a model guest. Russ Tyler - He attends. Everybody loves that guy. Ken Wu - Despite receiving an invite, he doesn't plan on going, but then he learns Portman's plans. He and Portman end up crashing it together. Jan - He is invited but is too old to go Hans - Several of the Ducks honor him with a ceremonial touching of the dance floor. A Norwegian tradition. Coach Orion - He attends. Gunner Stahl - He is invited and he's playing in Canada, so he makes it. Scooter - He attends as Julie Gaffney's date. Dave Karp - He is not invited and therefore does not attend. Peter Mark - He is not invited and therefore does not attend. For those paying attention the Ducks that go to rodeo drive are as follows: Greg Goldberg, Dwayne Robertson, Les/Dave Averman, Jesse Hall. Quack Question Thanks to  @NostalgicDrips for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod Better trick shot Fulton or Russ? #quackquestio — NostalgicDrips (@NostalgicDrips) September 10, 2018 Any shot that can do this through a goalie's glove is the winner. This is probably the best example of a knuckle puck in the NHL.

Mighty Ducks Minute No. 66: Gordon Bombay’s team speech
Mike and Tommy -- Kevin is gone -- tackle another minute from the Mighty Ducks movies. This time it's Gordon Bombay telling Ducksworth, Reilly and Phil Banks about the time his dad gave him a convoluted meaning to the word "team." Show Notes ONE MORE DAY FOR THE SALE IN THE SHOP. Get your gear now.  Kevin is on a trip to the East Coast. He should be back on September 16. Until then Tommy and Mike are going solo. Gordon Bombay's facial expressions after he's is told that the peewee hockey league needs him to drop his protest for the whole Adam Banks situation is settled: In Episode 1, we talked about whether Gordon Bombay learned anything at all.  Here's what Ducksworth says about Banks before the minute: "Actually Phil is one of my oldest friends." He says nothing about Jack Reilly, which fits with our theory that Ducksworth and Banks were drinking well before this meeting took place. Reilly, still with his coat on, appears to have just walked in. Bombay's wardrobe: As you can see, he's going with the white T-shirt, hoodie, jacket-with-leather sleeves combo. Does it work for him? What say you? Thanks to @Newbjob for the #QuackQuestion: @QuackAttackPod Why did Karp change his identity to Gerry Garner? #quackquestion — NewbJob (@NewbJob) August 26, 2018 While we talk about Gerry Garner (Karp) and Josh Burnbalm (possibly Goldberg?) we don't really discuss the other player making the transition from the Mighty Ducks movies to Heavyweights: Russ Tyler. He is named Roy in Heavyweights, so maybe they just got his name wrong on the first day and he never bothered to correct them.

What happened to the Eden Hall varsity after it lost to the JV Mighty Ducks?
In a continuation from last episode, Mike, Tommy and Kevin discuss what the Mighty Ducks movie doesn't show: the fallout from the varsity losing. Does Riley ever recover? What happens to Cole and Scooter? Is the varsity coach on his way out after an embarrassing loss? Show Notes Thanks to Bryan, David, Joyce and Luke for the donations. Previous times we've seen the varsity team struggle:  Orion and the varsity coach seem to have no hard feelings: Cole is NOT an alternate captain: There are three Sonics in Minneapolis alone.

The Luis Mendoza, Mindy, Riley love triangle
Mike, Tommy and Kevin return from a two-week break to talk about t-shirts, bachelor parties and Shaun Weiss' legal troubles before diving into the real topic: Who was in the wrong in the Luis Mendoza, Mindy, Riley love triangle in D3? Show Notes The Bachelor Party fund is here.  Follow Kevin's ongoing Kin Token investment. Buy your "Make America Quack Again" shirt. It's a great conversation piece.

A look at the Eden Hall varsity program and the politics behind it: what scandals were covered up?
Mike, Tommy and Kevin start talking about the varsity team but quickly delve into the politics at Eden Hall. How much cheating was going on during Eden Hall's 10-year state championship run? Should the Ducks and Eden Hall parted ways? Show Notes Be sure to check out the newest feature on our site: Is Kevin a millionaire yet?  The Carmel High School girls swim team has won 32 state championships in a row. Here more info on IMG Academy. The board reluctantly voting the Mighty Ducks back in: We talked about whether the prank war crossed the line with the varsity in Episode 56. Is this an offense worth of expulsion? Thanks to @AirLemaire for the #QuackQuestion: @QuackAttackPod assuming that The ducks beat the Varsity team in the middle of the season in D3, what happens to the varsity team for the rest of the year?

‘The Goldbergs’ creator Adam F. Goldberg on pitching Steve Brill on D4 at a Christmas party, Mighty Ducks vs. The Goonies
'The Goldbergs' creator Adam F. Goldberg talks about how he cornered Steve Brill at Christmas party and pitched him D4 and how that sort of set the stage for the in-development TV show. He goes deep on The Goonies vs. the Mighty Ducks in a fight. Show Notes Thanks to Adam for coming on.

Mike, Tommy, and Kevin tackle another Mighty Ducks Minute. This time it's the scene in the alley where the Ducks find the Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions and have a run-in with the Hawks. Did the Hawks insults cross the line? How tall is Fulton? Show Notes The Hawks outfits: This is the is the cover featuring Ashley Montana (or Ashley Richardson). It came out in February 1991. Fulton towering over McGill and Larson: Jesse Hall's clothing: Karp's hat. I can't really make out what any of the pins are: What is Peter Mark saying? Thanks to @cjgjmg for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod did Fulton start the rumor of having a football scholarship so people would get off his back about playing hockey. When Bombay asked him he said people talk don't mean nothing. So did he have offers or not #quackquestion — Chris Garland (@cjgjmg) January 11, 2018 @cjgjmg had one other #QuackQuestion make the air.

After you've done all that: message us on Twitter or on Facebook or email us so we can try to figure this out together. Mike mispoke. It was Mighty Ducks Minute No. 76, not 123. That minute came in EPISODE 123.  Thanks to @brandonmbender for figuring out the Whalers game. Here are all the details you'd ever want to know about the game. Charlie and Bombay dancing like weirdos at the game: On second glance, the cutaway on Mike Modano's goal looks exactly like Charlie's penalty shot, not Bombay's. Here is the net on Modano's shot. And the net  on Charlie's shot. Same net and backgrounds, different corners. Overtime's were still five minutes back in 1992. Thanks to @Stevieyanks for the #QuackQuestion. This is Marcus Dupree.  Thanks to @AbsoluteGunk for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod Who would you rather have on a hockey team The Bash Brothers or The Hanson Brothers from Slap Shot? #TheQuackQuestion — AbsoluteGunk (@AbsoluteGunk) May 28, 2018 The Hanson brothers were not real people. They were based off the Carlson brothers, who were indeed real.

Actress Susan Chambers on what it’s like being a stand-in, flirting with Emilio Estevez and acting in weird commercials
With Kevin still gone, actress Susan Chambers steps in as a replacement. Susan was a stand-in for Kathryn Erbe in D2. She talks about what that actually entailed, what she took from it, rejecting Emilio Estevez, and weird commercials she has been in. Show Notes Thanks to Susan for coming on. You can get more info on her at see her reel -- including the weird commercials -- at Also, here is her IMDB.  Susan Chambers: Kathryn Erbe: Here is the trailer for In the Name of God: Here is How to Be a Latin Lover. The teenage movie Susan was thinking of that had Jesse Metcalfe was John Tucker Must Die. Here's the City Lips commercial: Susan in that commerical with the weird medical company:Thanks to @Damansara_Keith for the #QuackQuestion: Does she remember being in scenes that did not make the final cut. — Keith Leong (@Damansara_Keith) May 13, 2018 The main actress of In Stranger Company that Susan was thinking of is Jules Wilcox. This is T.C. Stallings.

Mighty Ducks Minute No. 83: The Ducks vs. Hawks staredown
With Kevin in Japan, Mike and Tommy take a look at another Mighty Ducks minute. This time it's the staredown between the Hawks and the Ducks before the state championship game. Who has the best mean mug? Hair? Also, did Goldberg ever want to play hockey? Show Notes Why are they standing side-by-side? (Also, the NH stands for New Hope. It is this rink on Google Maps.) Karp's "Do something face": What is Terry mouthing? Jesse and Banks: Goldberg: Here is probably the best shot of the crowd. Full in some pockets, but no one behind the net: We talked with Casey Garven in Episode 49. Larson's look: Here's the video from the Minnesota high school hockey state championship all-hair team: Conway's head of hair: Bombay's look to Coach Reilly: The magazine was "Let's Play Hockey." Here's a summary of William Wilson by Edgar Allen Poe.  Thanks to @derickoversell for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod you may have gotten to this in a show.

Why was Iceland the villain in D2? NPR’s Only A Game investigates
We're switching it up this week and handing the reins over to NPR's Only A Game Podcast. Producer Martin Kessler interviewed Mike, Tommy, and Kevin for his story on how Iceland became the D2 villain. In this episode we play Martin's entire story. Show Notes Thanks to Only A Game, especially Martin, for letting us be a small piece of the story. Follow only a game on Twitter: @OnlyAGameNPR, and on the Facebook page. Also give our man Martin a follow at @MartinKessler91.

Scott Whyte a.k.a. Gunnar Stahl a.k.a. Scooter the Goalie talks becoming a cult hero, whether Gunnar missed on purpose
Scott Whyte joins the podcast to talke about how he went from a Slim Jim commercial with Macho Man Randy Savage to playing both Gunnar Stahl and Scooter the goalie. He explains learning an Icelandic accent, what he said to Jesse Hall, how he almost added "Crazy Dave" the comic relief guy to his roles in D3 and much, much more. Show Notes Thanks to Scott Whyte for being a true scholar and a gentleman. Follow him on Twitter and on Instagram and his YouTube channel. Here's his IMDB. You've definitely heard his voice without realizing it. Wayne Gretzky came to the Los Angeles Kings in 1988. Here is Scott in the Slim Jim commericial. Check out those bangs: Here he is in the Pop Tarts commerical. "Cool things happen in the morning with the warm taste of Kellog's Pop Tarts": Here is Macho Man getting bitten by Jake The Snake Roberts' snake: We talked with Jordan Kerner in Episode 55. Scott Whyte, the original Eddie Murphy: Here is "You lost it for yourself" and "Let's go shake their hands." Notice the difference in his dialect. Scott lost the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor that year to Martin Landau in Ed Wood. (Other nominees included Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction and Gary Sinise in Forrest Gump.) Tom Hanks won best actor that year for Forrest Gump.

Dissecting the D3: The Mighty Ducks novelization, including the debut of ‘Gary Goldberg’
Mike and Kevin tackle the D3 novelization while Tommy celebrates his anniversary (allegedly). In the book they meet 'Gary Goldberg', find Charlie to be even worse than before, and ponder if anything was going on between Mendoza and Julie 'The Cat' Gaffney. Show Notes If you missed our interview with Ryan Wotherspoon, listen to it here. Our D1 novelization came in Episode 152. D2 came in Episode 153. You can read all the novelizations at  No junior varsity championship banners up there: The description of the protest from the novel: "They came upon a group of students marching in a small circle and carrying signs and chanting. One of the signs showed an Indian warrior with a red circle and slash through it."  It doesn't appear that the woman Luis tried to woo at the protest was Linda Chavez.  UPDATE: Quackolye Keri, who actually has the book said it was indeed Linda that Luis hit on. The novel apparently came with screen caps, in which Linda is holding the sign. Charlie and Linda Chavez: Goldberg's plate: Duck call to the real Blake Bears hockey team. Hans dropping the C's on Charlie. Fortunately in the documentary he didn't have to spell it out as much. Thanks to @chefwayneface for the #QuackQuestion: My question, why was it so dark in the Eden Hall Arena? You'd think a fancy prep school could afford proper lighting for their rink. — chefwayneface (@chefwayneface) April 6, 2018 We talked with Rob Lieberman in Episode 137. The lights in the Eden Hall arena apparently were still warming up for the showdown: We did not account for the weird shadows during the Blake Bears game. Although it was bright at times during that game too, so *shrug emoji*.

Ryan Wotherspoon a.k.a. “Excited Fan” in two of the Mighty Ducks movies, talks Emilio Estevez’s poor memory, Arnold Schwarzenegger
Ryan Wotherspoon, also known as "Excited fan No. 8" (or No. 10, or No. 1), joins the pod to talk about life as an extra during Minnesota's film explosion. He dishes on Emilio Estevez's memory, sitting with dummies, Arnold Schwarzenegger cursing at him, and more. Show Notes Here is Ryan's IMDB. Check out his work at Speed Bump Intros. He's the male vocalist on the 80's, Country, and Oldies jingles on the site. This is him singing. He's effing good: Jingle All the Way with a 16 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Overnight Delivery is surprisingly higher: 43 percent. Our most Sinbad-centric episode was Episode 116. Assuming D3 was filmed in 1995 (it was released in 1996), Michael Cudlitz ("Cole") was 31 during the filming of the movie. Who can spot Ryan? Here is Ryan making out with the weird girl in Overnight Delivery. Click the thumbnail and you can see her thrust herself upon Ryan:  Thanks to @bberg19 for the #QuackQuestion: Did he know the plot for D3 before signing on, and was he as excited of a fan when he found out he'd be watching a JV-varsity showdown? Also, assuming he was a fan of the series, what would he have wanted D3 to be about? — Bryan (@bberg19) March 31, 2018 The biggest psychopath according to the guy who studied psychopaths: Edmund Kemper.

Taking down Deadspin’s takedown of the Mighty Ducks
On Tuesday, Deadspin released a blasphemous video that called the Mighty Ducks "mediocre." Mike, Tommy, and Kevin examine the break down the video point by point, to show just how off the mark the video is. Show Notes Here is the link the Deadspin review of the Mighty Ducks. There are multiple podcasts about The Simpsons out there, including The Simpsons Show , Talking Simpsons, and Four Finger Discount. The Simpsons are on season No. 29. Duck call to Hannah's husband for having the movie and possibly this Mighty Ducks jersey:  Listen to our discussion of Bombay in Episode 1.  This is the entirety of Fulton's skating in the first game. Here's a primer on the Billy Donovan situation if you're unfamiliar. The Hard Ball trailer: Hannah wasn't happy with this resolution. It was clear Bombay was just trying to get some while keeping it casual. The Indian in the Cupboard has an impressive 71 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Thanks to @2015LigotChamp for the #QuackQuestion. Why didn't Charlie round up the Ducks who didn't play in D2 (Karp, Peter etc)? Did he know they were out or did he just not want them on the team? #quackquestion — Wheeler for Hart (@2015LigotChamp) February 5, 2018 How long was Bombay waiting at the Band Box?

The conclusion of the D2: The Mighty Ducks novelization, including an international love triangle and a beach brawl with Iceland
Mike, Tommy, and Kevin talk way too long about young Gordon Bombay's cryptocurrency operation and Kevin's cratering investments before getting into the conclusion of the D2 novelization. Once they get there they discover a love triangle and a brutal crime. Show Notes Here is John Oliver going after Brock Pierce: An open letter on Medium from EOS mentioned that Brock Pierce was no longer with the company. Apparently Pierce was no longer with the company by the time Oliver's episode aired.  Duck call to Kevin's Kin Tokens. Duck call to Emilio in the breakfast club: Is this Italian player, Gianni? Tibbles' quacking when the Ducks come out with their new uniforms. Is it because he's been fired from Hendrix Hockey? Gretzky was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in 1988. He played with them until 1996. With the Junior Goodwill Games coming in March 1994, he was a longtime member of the Kings at that point. He had not just been traded like Mike said. Swingers came out in 1996, but it does look like they are playing NHL 94. Thanks to @Damansara_Keith for the #QuackQuestion: @QuackAttackPod Once you guys have reviewed the second novel, I want you to answer this #quackquestion: which take on the story is better? The documentary or the novel? — Keith Leong (@Damansara_Keith) March 9, 2018

Part 1 of the D2: The Mighty Ducks novelization, in which Gordon Bombay tries his best to flirt with Michele McKay
Mike, Tommy, and Kevin are back discussing the Mighty Ducks novelizations. The D2 version is so good it had to be split into two different podcasts. In part one they discover a feud over Connie between Guy Germaine and Luis Mendoza. Elsewhere Portman loses his Nirvana tape. Show Notes Go to the shop. Use SHIP18 for free shipping. We talked about the novelization of D1 in Episode 151.  Did Bombay pass out from his knee injury? Hans' has removed Jan's name from the sport shop: Winnipeg has a population of 705,000 people according to Wikipedia, the smallest of any city with an NHL team. A sampling of other movies Jordan Horowitz has adapted into novels: Free Willy, Tom and Jerry: The Movie, Free Willy 2, Heavyweights Duck call to Jesse and Brendan for correctly identifying the book series Kevin was talking about last episode. It was the Screech Owls series by Roy MacGregor. If you want to read the novelizations, go to Meeting up at the old Band Box.  We talked about Ken Wu's ancestry in Episode 17 and Episode 143.  I couldn't find any high school mascot with the mascot of the Tangerines. If you find one, send it our way.  Thanks to @colinm82 for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod what was going in Minnesota in the 90s? Truly a breeding ground for unconventional coaching, tactics, and leadership. Gordon Bombay with the Ducks, Billy Haywood with the Twins. Did their success inspire a Jesse Ventura for Governor victory? #quackquestion — Colin (@colinm82) February 27, 2018 Little Big League came out in 1994. It has a scorching 33 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Jesse Ventura made became Governor in 1999. The Wizard came out in 1989. It has an even hotter 26 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Breaking down the important revelations from the Mighty Ducks novelization
Mike, Tommy and Kevin dive deep into the rarely talked about novelization of the Mighty Ducks. They learn a number of new background facts, spot some contradictions and question why author Jordan Horowitz hated Karp as much as they do. Show Notes If you haven't filled out the listener survey yet, you can fill it out here.  As for the affiliate links, we've been approved by iTunes. Will work on getting Amazon. How it works: we provide our link and a small portion of the cost of what you buy is redirected back to us. It doesn't cost you any more money.  So basically if you go buy anything through iTunes -- music, book, a movie, or even download a podcast -- add our affiliate number: "1010lJXG" to the end of the link and we should get money. For example: If you buy or rent The Mighty Ducks through this link we get some money kicked back to us. You can find the novelizations here. The Jordan Horowitz that wrote the Mighty Ducks novels is probably not same person who produced La La Land. Horowitz is 37 years old. He would've been 12 years old at the time the first novel came out. Here is a link to the official TOSS rule book.  Bombay playing on the same pond he meets District 5 at in the first practice: The classic egg drill: According to this geocities-looking website, the cost of a dozen eggs in 1992 was $0.93. If the Ducks practiced a full hour and didn't get any better, disposing an estimated 10 eggs per minute, they ran through five dozen eggs. That's $4.65. Adjusting for inflation, Gordon Bombay spent at least $8.65 in today's dollars on that one drill. We talked to Casey Garven, who played Larson, in Episode 49.  Mike couldn't find the series Kevin was talking about? Any Quackolytes have any ideas? The book Mike was thinking of is called Ice Magic by Matt Christopher. Thanks to Brendan for the #QuackQuestion: Ok when Bombay blows out his knee while playing for the Waves, they carefully take his helmet off and put a towel under his head. What's that about? They want to make him comfortable as he grimaces for an indefinite amount of time? Is he a soldier rapidly losing blood on the battlefield? Why not just skate him off the ice with a teammate supporting him on each side? I'm guessing the Waves players are sort of mourning the end of this uplifting comeback story? Bombay with the towel around his head: To be fair, a trainer does rush to Bombay's knee as well.

Mighty Ducks minute No. 118, when Fulton Reed assaults three Hawks players
Mike, Tommy, and Kevin tackle another Mighty Ducks minute. This time they look at the Hawks' attempt to foil the Ducks' roundup, how Fulton Reed assaulted three Hawks players at the same the time, and whether there was some product promotion hidden in D2. Show Notes Mighty Ducks quote of the day: "They won't know what hit them." Please click this link and fill out this survey Thanks again to Lesley Goldberg (@Snoodit) for answering our question. Kevin was wrong and right: It was NBC, not ABC, that originally had Friday Night Lights. But it was DirecTV that came and rescued the show due to a partnership deal with NBC. Game of Thrones is indeed supposed to come out in 2019.  The plot to Wild Hogs, if you're unfamiliar. Aaron Schwartz was on Episode 94. Zeitgeist: "the defining spirit or mood of a particular period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time." -- so not really the correct usage, but whatever. We did Minute 117 in Episode 118, although we called it Minute 116. How did Fulton even do this?  McGill's earring: This scene appears to be filmed at Theodore Wirth Regional Park. Here's the billboard with Bombay standing behind the Duck Head billboard.  Mike said it the building above was called "Burger Bank." It was obviously Band Box. That's embarrassing. Thanks to @hodgee_ for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod In honor of the upcoming Olympic Games:#QuackQuestion Reference article: — Andrew Hodge (@hodgeee_) January 12, 2018 Over 450,000 condoms were ordered for the Olympic Village in Rio. The announcer does say the U.S. is favored in swimming, basketball, and hockey at the Junior Goodwill Games. We talked about what Portman and Julie did in the locker room after getting kicked out of the first Iceland game in Episode 11.

What we know know about the in-development Mighty Ducks TV series
Mike, Tommy, and Kevin convene for the first time since the biggest news story since Watergate broke: There is a Mighty Ducks TV series in the works. The crew shares what they know, reveals some rumors and discusses what they'd like to see out of the series. Show Notes Mighty Ducks quote of the week: "The Quack Attack is back, Jack!" Good work by Lesley Goldberg to break this story. Follow her on Twitter: @Snoodit. You can read the full Hollywood Reporter story here. Disney's SVOD service is tentatively set to debut in 2019. Wet Hot American Summer actually had a couple different things. There was "First Day of Camp", which was the series Kevin was referring to, and there was also a miniseries called "Ten years later." Both are on Netflix and both received positive reviews. Emilio Estevez wrote, directed and we'll say co-starred in his most recent venture, The Public. It is set to be released on January 31 and features Alec Baldwin, Christian Slater, Gabrielle Union, and others. It looks pretty good. Girl Meets World has an 88 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. We talked with Steve Brill in Episode 63 and Episode 64.  We talked with Jordan Kerner in Episode 55. Logan has a 93 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. We cast Doris Roberts in a Lifetime movie about Ted Orion in Episode 134. Doris died in 2016. J.J. Watt's thoughts on the reboot: Please let this be a continuation and not a reboot. I wanna see the Ducks playing in a local adult hockey league sponsored by Goldberg’s Deli, while Bombay runs Hans shop and sells exclusively discontinued Air Bombay loafers and Hendrix apparel. — JJ Watt (@JJWatt) January 24, 2018 Thanks to @TheEliDozier for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod Steve Brill calls you tomorrow to tell you he needs one of you to make a cameo in the new show. Key word being ONE of you. Who gets it and why? #QuackQuestion — Eli Dozier (@TheEliDozier) January 23, 2018 Melissa Keller gave Kevin modeling tips in Episode 97.

#QuackQuestion of the year winner Zach discusses how closely the Minnesota Vikings resemble the Mighty Ducks
Mike, Tommy, and Kevin welcome in 2017 #QuackQuestion of the year winner Zach to talk about how he got so many votes so quickly, his Angels in the Outfield/Mighty Ducks crossover and life as a traveling salesman in Iowa. They then pass the torch and take on a #QuackQuestion. Show Notes Mighty Ducks quote of the day: “You’ve got the fast glove.” Thanks to Zach for joining the program. He won #QuackQuestion of the year with 72 percent of the vote. Zach's #QuackQuestion came during the Turkey Leg challenge in Episode 113. After the pod, Zach gave us an update on  the egg counters: "I looked up our customers and the biggest packing machine they use is for 3,500 eggs per minute. That is from multiple barns but that’s the biggest we have done. We don’t sell packing machines but I believe there are some pretty big machines that can handle a lot more capacity." According to a 2015 article by the Associated Press, there are more roughly 200 goat farms in Iowa and goat milk had did $92.2 million in sales in the United States in 2012. A study cited in that article, done by Dairy Management, Inc., which promotes cattle dairy farmers state that goat milk accounted for 0.02 percent of milk consumption in 2014. Mickey's diner: According to IMDB, Goldberg's Deli is really Kramarczuk's Sausage Company: Mike has no further comment on Tommy as a boss. Thanks to @safjid6 for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod do you see the Vikings as being the Ducks this year? — Saajid Islam (@safjid6) January 16, 2018 For those unfamiliar, here is what happened with the Vikings this year. The Vikings head coach, Mike Zimmer, does not have a DUI. HOWEVER, their defensive coordinator, George Edwards, does. Here is the video of the Jaguars fan that Kevin was talking about: Get your Minnesota Miracle Man t-shirt here:

What happened in the overtime after Gordon Bombay missed the penalty shot?
In their first podcast of 2018, Mike, Tommy, and Kevin break down exactly what happened in OT of the 1973 Minnesota Peewee state championship game after Gordon Bombay missed his penalty shot. They also reveal the winner of 2017 #QuackQuestion of the Year. Show Notes The article by @joyceeng61 was Which TV Kevin had the best 2016? The Oscars are March 8. JAC Redford, from Episode 139, arranged and orchestrated Skyfall, which won the Oscar for best original song in 2013. Don't thing he technically gets credit for that though. The guy Tommy was thinking was David Newman, from Episode 61, who was nominated for Best Music, Original Musical or Comedy Score in 1998 for his work in Anastasia. The Skulls, which Kevin called "a great film", sits at nine percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Here's the Wikipedia for Saint Piran of Cornwall. Bombay after missing the penalty shot: Reilly's reaction to Bombay missing the shot: Here is Texas Tech dropping the ball right at the goal line. Thanks to @angiesoluv for the #QuackQuestion @QuackAttackPod You guys mentioned in ep 8 that Fulton just came to the games and might not have asked to joithe team bc he couldn't skate, but would that have made a difference with them falling over every 3 seconds anyway? He obviously saw how bad they were. #quackquestion — Angela (@angiesoluv) December 29, 2017 Episode 8 was indeed our Fulton episode.
