CBJ Fan Spotlight


Name: Cody Compton

Twitter Handle: @ccompton96

Tell me a little bit about yourself: I’m a major hockey fan. That’s all you need to know.

When did you become a fan of the Columbus Blue Jackets: been a fan and season ticket holder since 2000! 

Have you been to a CBJ game if so tell me about your experience: every game I never get tired of coming . Wether we win or lose

Where do you see the team in five years: I see them as a Stanley cup contender.

Favorite current player: either Captain America , Dorsett , or , Cam Atkinson

Favorite CBJ memory (on or off the ice): to many good memory’s to pick a favorite but any time we beat the Red Wings is a good memory.

Favorite CBJ Jersey design: 07 home jerseys 

BOB or MASE? Love Bob and love Mase no favorite here.

Favorite thing to eat at Nationwide: nachos, two cheese lots of peppers 

Favorite place to sit in the arena: upper bowl! You can see everything

If you could be any person in the CBJ organization for a day who would you be and why? Scott Howson to show em how to do the job ;p  (note: this last question was answered mere days before Howson was let go. It’s like this kid is psychic)



What could possibly be better than hockey players tweeting pictures of their dogs, cats, or children? Most would say “Nothing is better.” I say “False there Is one thing better”


O cam cam what would we do with out you? Whenever I’m having a bad day I can almost always count on Cam Atkinson posting a picture of one of his beloved dogs. Today, oh today, was much different. He posted a picture of his new pet pig. Sometimes the man makes my brain turn into mush from all the cuteness he posts.

So Now I bring to you the new love of cam’s life “Francis Bacon”









The next time I have a bad day I will remind myself of Alzner’s tweet. As if losing a playoff game in triple overtime wasn’t bad enough imagine coming home to a torn up house. Now imagine trying to yell at those dogs and not being able to because they are so darn cute. Which can mean only one thing the capitals are going to have to stop going into overtime. It seems as though no dog crate is strong enough to keep those two from busting loose and creating mass havoc.









Hello battle wounds. Sami how many girls did you pick up with that nasty beast? You would have had me at “O this? This is nothing. Just stopped a shot from going in the goal. No big deal.” To bad sacrificing your beautiful body didn’t move the Blackhawks onto the next round of playoffs. We miss you in Columbus. Please come home.









Cam Cam Cam. Always fraternizing with the enemy. While most fans would be upset that Cam likes to kick it with members of the opposing team, I on the other hand am ok with that fact. Why? I noticed a little trend. Whenever Cam hangs out with “the enemy” they end up not playing the next game. Hugs Methot in the elevator: out with a groin injury. Takes Quick out to dinner: doesn’t start. In goalie terms that usually means you’re not playing. Goes out to dinner with Jimmy Hayes: healthy scratch. I think Cam Atkinson is the key to the Columbus Blue Jackets success next season. Cam, Keep on going out with the enemy. Keep your friends close but your enemies closer. ;)



Brandon Bollig’s tweet shows the love hockey players have for their fans. From what I’ve read about Jimmy he was a fighter. In December 2011, Newcomer was diagnosed with Bile duct cancer and by January was given only a few weeks to live. Jimmy lived five months longer than expected and in the process stole the hearts of a few Blackhawks players. Ben Smith paid a visit to Jimmy two days before he was sent up to the Blackhawks. While there he was informed by Jimmy that he was too ill to attend his first Blackhawks game. Being such a kind soul Smith offered to sit with Jimmy the night of the game. Little did Smith know he was about to get the break of a lifetime and was sent up to the big show. Unfortunately that meant he could not fulfill the promise he made. Instead of saying, “sorry my job calls” Smith called upon his fellow Ice Hogs, Jimmy’s family and Jimmy’s friends to take his place. Later on the Ice Hogs organized a fundraiser at Texas Roadhouse where they raised over $10,000 dollars to help with hospital expenses.
People tend to forget that hockey players have feelings. They think they can tweet horrid things to players and run their name through the mud. Yet, this situation proves what big hearts some players have. They are people just like us. They have problems and they lose people they love. Stick taps to Ben Smith, Brandon Bollig and the Ice Hogs organization for making the last few months of Jimmy Newcomers life a little bit more tolerable. My hearts and prayers go out to the the Newcomer family. Stay strong. You’ve got a whole family of hockey love.



Now I’m sure some of you are a little misty eyed thinking about the story above so I’ll move on to something a little bit more light hearted. When I say light hearted I really mean hilarious. Now I bring you Gabe Landeskog’s singing. What could be more Swedish than singing ABBA songs? Nothing. Go ahead and rock your heritage. Gabe, I’m sorry but you have been voted off American Idol. Grab your things and head back to Colorado.

If more men thought about the duck face the way Ryan Whitney does there would be a lot of single ladies in the world. In fact, there would probably be no Jersey Shore babies on the verge of being born. LAdies, The duckface is unattractive. Your face may look thinner but you look like an ugly duckling. Thank you Ryan for proving that there are men out there who think the duckface is quite unattractive.


Dustin Penner I like you but if there is the slightest possibility you are going to dress up in that outfit I will hate you until the cows come home. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. No, I lied, don’t hate the game. I love hockey and probably more than I should. If I could marry hockey I would.











You’re judging me right now. I know. I’m a pretty girl so you have to give me a break. Cam Atkinson’s dogs are adorable. I want to dog nap that white little ball of fluff. Why? The dog looks like a total shit. You know, the type of dog that eats your underwear and then gives you kisses so you can’t be mad. I really just want to take it’s face in my hands, speak in the Jenna Marbles baby voice and say “you’re a cute little shit aren’t you? you little shit you. yes you are.”










When it comes to his fans, Hartnell has a heart bigger than his hair. How many times do kids write their favorite player and never know if they got the letter or not. Well, if you are a fan of Hartnell at some point he has probably tweeted a letter or a drawing you sent him. It’s nice to know there are players out there who are willing to let their fans know they appreciate them.


Tonight begins the most beautiful time of year. The time of year filled with magic. Tonight starts the time of year when faces get furry and mullets make a comeback. Tonight begins the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.  With the playoffs come the highs and lows that lead people do one thing. That thing is drinking. A glass of wine here to celebrate or a can of beer that will catch your tears as your heart breaks into a million little hockey pucks because your team faltered.

So now I bring to you the first installment of “Hockey Shots”.  These installments were inspired by the recent NHL Draft Lottery Tweetup that happened in Columbus last night. My friend Cyrus held a competition to see who could come up with the best Columbus Blue Jackets inspired shot. For this installment I picked my top four favorite shot entries. Enjoy and drink responsibly.
