Guy Behind the Guy: Sleepy Monday Alerts
I am guessing our eyes aren't the only ones looking a little sleepy on this beautiful Monday in the Triangle. To those of you who stayed up late on a work night to welcome us home again, thanks! The airport welcomes continue to be such a unique tradition here, and one that we all enjoy. We tried to let most of the boys enjoy their day off today, but I do have just a few quick media alerts for today:

    The Insiders on 99.9 The Fan (http://www.wralsportsfan.com/999thefan/ ) will have a pair of Hurricanes guests this afternoon. Scott Jackson and Mark Thomas taped an interview with Paul Maurice during today's media availability, which will air at 3:25 and 6:25. And Mr. Clutch Jussi Jokinen will join the Insiders by phone at 5:05 p.m.
  • Ryan Bayda will be David Glenn's guest on 850 The Buzz today. That interview will also happen at 5:05. 
  • Jim Rutherford will join Jeff Marek and Cassie Campbell Pascall on Hockey Night in Canada Radio tonight at 6:30. HNIC Radio is available on Sirius 122 and 97.
  • Charlotte's Primetime with the Packman will return to Raleigh on Wednesday, broadcasting live from The Backyard Bistro from 3-7 p.m.
New Beard-a-thon photos were snapped at the TD Banknorth Garden prior to last night's game for 99.9 The Fan's Mike Maniscalco, our own Kyle Hanlin and yours truly. I am taking some heat from my fellow Hurricanes bloggers on my fundraising abilities, despite my clearly superior facial hair growth. Prior to the game last night, TSN and NBC commentator Pierre McGuire called mine "the best playoff beard in hockey right now." So feel free to click on my profile and throw a couple bucks to a worthy cause! (The cause being, of course, the Kids 'N Community Foundation, much more important than the cause of me beating Doug Warf in either beard-growth or fundraising.)

On that note, I also wanted to compliment all of you who are either growing a beard or have contributed in the name of somebody's facial hair this spring. The Hurricanes Beard-a-thon eclipsed the $30,000 mark in the last few days, a terrific achievement that will allow Doug and the Foundation to benefit worthy children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina even more this year. Kudos to Doug for getting our team involved in the Beard-a-thon, which really is a great way for everyone to help great children's causes and display Caniac spirit during the playoffs.
