As part of the 2017 GHL Finals Media Day, Flames' Forward Marc Sequin was asked a number of questions along with his fellow Flames. Marc seemed to believe that he was Charlie Sheen. Here is the transcript of his interview (unedited).
Have you been a GHL champion before? (give details…)
“Nah! C’mon bro, I won best picture at 20. I wasn’t even trying. I wasn’t even warm."
Have you won in another sport before?
“If by sport you mean life, then yes I have won. I got tiger blood, man. My brain...fires in a way that is - I don't know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm."
On a scale of 1 to 10, how nervous do you think you will be before the game?
“Nervous! I'm sorry, man, but I've got magic. I've got poetry in my fingertips. Most of the time — and this includes naps — I'm an F-18, bro. And I will destroy you in the air. I will deploy my ordinance to the ground."
As a sports fan, what is your favourite winning moment that you have seen (either live or on TV)?
“1989 AL Championship. Top of the 9th NY Yankees have the bases loaded and the Cleveland Indians bring in pitcher Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn.
With 2 outs Vaughn manages to strike out Yankees' Clu Haywood arguably their best hitter, sending the Indians up to bat where they secured the championship and avoided the sale of the team. There has been no moment in pro sports beforehand or since that has capitulated this level of #WINNING.”
When they recreate your team’s season in a made-for-TV movie, what actor / actress plays the part of you?
"It's being directed and written by a genius named David Ward who, I don't know, won the Academy Award at 23 for writing The Sting? It was his pen and his vision that created the classic that we know today as Major League. In fact, a lot of people think the movie's called Wild Thing, as they should. Whatever … If they want me in it, it's a smash. If they don't, it's a turd that opens on a tugboat."
What are they keys for your team winning?
"It's perfect. It's awesome. Every day is just filled with just wins. All we do is put wins in the record books. We win so radically in our underwear before our first cup of coffee, it's scary."
Say something nice about the team you are playing (either a player or the team).
“I wish them nothing but pain in their silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated these earthworm with my words - imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists.”
You’ve just won the championship and the TV cameras are on you…you say – “I’m going to….”. Finish that sentence.
“probably take more than anybody could survive. ... I was bangin' seven-gram rocks and finishing them because that's how I roll, because I have one speed, one gear. [I survived] because I'm me. I'm different. I have a different constitution, I have a different brain, I have a different heart. I got tiger blood, man. Loosing's for fools, loosing's for amateurs."
What are you most looking forward to on April 1st?
“One day I woke up. I’ve been kicked around, I’ve been criticized, I’ve been this “Aww Shucks” guy with like this bitchin’ rock star life, and I’m just finally gonna completely embrace it, wrap both arms around it, and love it violently, and defend it violently through violent hatred.”
Give a funny prediction on something that may happen during the Final Game.
“We’re Blackhawk assassins. How complicated can it be? What they’re not ready for is guys like you and I and Nails and all the other gnarly gnarlingtons in my life, that we are high priests, Blackhawk assassin warlocks. Boom. Print that, people.”
