Mark Hoppus Of Blink-182 Talks to Kreckman & Lindahl About Avalanche Fans Embracing Song

Stanley Cup Final

Ball Arena in Denver was rocking throughout the course of the Colorado Avalanche’s run to the 2022 Stanley Cup title. But nothing would get fans going more in the arena than the hit Blink-182 song “All The Small Things.”

There are videos all over the internet showing fans singing the tune in unison during Avs games. The track was put into the rotation by arena DJ Craig Turney, also known as DJ Triple T, in 2019. The Avalanche play the song near the midway point of the third period and it’s especially raucous when the Avs are winning a Cup.

Song co-writer and Blink bassist Mark Hoppus joined Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 & 950 hosts Nate Kreckman and Andy Lindahl on Tuesday and said he thought it was rad Avs fans made the song their anthem.

“To see that happening is so gratifying and so cool,” Hoppus said. “I think it really speaks to the power of music, and it’s just awesome. I’m so stoked.”

Hoppus added he was shocked at first to learn the song had taken off in Denver like it had, but he expressed how happy he was for the fans who rode that wave to a championship and how he really wanted to be at the team’s parade.

“I want to ride on a float,” he joked. “I’m gonna get arrested for trying to jump on the float.”

For a song that first came out over twenty years ago, it’s wonderful for Hoppus to see it take on a second life with hockey fans.

“It was a huge hit for us back in ’99, and now in 2022 here it is again,” he said. “It’s so cool.”

Matt Chernoff: WFAN’s Sal Licata ‘Doesn’t Have The Guts’ to Appear On 680 The Fan Again

“He doesn’t have the guts to come on again. After what happened last time? You think he wants that again? Why the hell would he want that?”

Would WFAN’s Sal Licata join Chuck and Chernoff on 680 The Fan in Atlanta again? According to Matt Chernoff, no.

During a May appearance on SNY, Licata declared the National League East race over, saying the New York Mets had wrapped up the division. The Atlanta Braves then proceeded to win 14 consecutive games. The Mets currently hold a seven game lead over the Braves in the division.

After the 14 game winning streak, Chuck and Chernoff had Licata on their show to confront him about the opinion, and things got slightly heated, with Chernoff and Licata eventually yelling at each other, before cooler heads prevailed.

The two hosts rekindled their disdain for one another after the Mets won four of five games against the Braves over the weekend, with the two trading barbs on Twitter. Licata joked Chernoff should hope the New York host doesn’t move to Atlanta to win a ratings battle, and called Chernoff a clown before deleting the tweet. He later tweeted “Funny. No invites from Atlanta sports talk radio today,” accompanied by a should shrug emoji. That caught the attention of Chernoff, who addressed it to open his show Monday.

“He (Licata) won’t come on,” Chernoff said. “He doesn’t have the guts to come on again. After what happened last time? You think he wants that again? Why the hell would he want that? He made a fool of himself and then lied about it to his own fans. There’s a reason he didn’t play the audio on his dumb little show. And next time when he’s an hour late, they have that to play instead. I mean, honestly, if he wants to come on, come on. He has no interest. He does not want this smoke.”

Paul Finebaum

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.
