SABRES EMCEE PROFILE

Name: Tom Tran

What do you do for a living?

- I am a Professional Disappointment to my Parents. I’ve turned breaking my mother’s heart into a career. I’m a Standup Comic. My mother cries nightly. I’m also a Professional Commuter Information Dispenser. That’s the fancy name I made up for being a traffic reporter on the radio. And I’m retired Army. So in reality, I don’t do anything.

What 3 adjectives would you use to best describe yourself?

- Depends on whom you ask. I had a former soldier tell me that, I was “loud, outspoken, pushy. My father calls me messy, erratic, and a drain on his finances and what’s left of his sanity. But, I’d say impulsive, outgoing, and fun.

What is your favorite movie?

Here is my Top 5: SLAPSHOT, ANCHORMAN, BLACKHAWK DOWN, MIRACLE, and CROSSROADS (Yes, the one with Britney Spears. She’s soooo awesome in it. I pray, you know I’m joking.)

What is your favorite song?

- “Don’t Stop Believin’” - Journey

Who is your favorite Singer/Band?

- Band: Van Halen, Singer: Whoever’s singing for Van Halen at the time… so currently no one.

Who is your favorite current Buffalo Sabres player?

- Maxim Afinogenov

Who is your all time favorite Buffalo Sabres player?

- Lindy Ruff (If this seems like a blatant attempt to suck up. Well, you’d be correct.)

What was your most embarrassing moment?

Here are two.

A few years ago, I was still in college and working on the radio here in Buffalo early in the morning. It was a long night, and I was very tired. I was on the air, and forgot my name. Not a made up radio name. My REAL name. The DJ had to remind me, and I was kind of like, “Uh.. yeah. OK. Whatever you say.”

And last October, the Saturday after the big storm, I went to work at a radio station and because it was such a serious situation, I was trying to be a REAL broadcaster instead of a silly rock jock. I tried to be very professional. Then I gave away tickets to a concert or something. No phone calls. None. I went to find my boss to find out what was up and he says to me, “Hey genius, we’ve been off the air for two days. You’ve been talking to yourself for an hour.”

If you were a Superhero, what would your superpower be?

- The unstoppable slapshot. Or the power to know exactly what’s wrong when a woman says, “Nothing’s wrong”. I’d probably use that power everyday.
