Everyone is familiar with National Geographic and may know that they have somewhat recently re-branded themselves as “Nat Geo”. All I know is that every time I scroll through the TV guide menu, I see something on their that sounds fascinating, I click, and I don’t get the channel.
However, the web is wide open and Nat Geo is hosting a 10-episode web series which will glimpse into the Eco-friendly life of one of our favorite Boston Bruin defenseman, Andrew Ference, called “Beyond the Puck”. The show premiers TODAY, Thursday February 16th.
Here’s a little blurb from the site:
Andrew Ference, an eco-warrior and NHL hockey player, offers a rare glimpse into his sustainable lifestyle in the new 10-episode web series Beyond the Puck.
But he is not your typical hockey player. Andrew’s an environmental activist, a Stanley Cup champion, the husband of a former professional snowboarder, and father of two girls. He rides his bike to “work” and doesn’t mind being called a tree hugger — he’s just as comfortable checking opponents on the ice as he is teaching kids about composting in elementary schools.
Inspired by his friend, environmentalist David Suzuki, Andrew has embraced an eco-friendly way of life at home and on the road. He’s achieved the ultimate victory in hockey — winning the Stanley Cup — and is ready take on the challenge of inspiring others to care about the planet.
I definitely plan on checking this series out and I don’t think I could urge you enough to. Though I know Bruins fans are dedicated enough to their team to watch without me!
