EnglishLingQ 2.0 Podcast #3: Mark Kaufmann Talks About His Hockey Career (3)

I actually, yeah, I know.

I think you still hear about stupid stuff that happens, but I suspect that there's a lot less of it now for that reason that everybody is a lot more aware of what everybody else is doing.

And back in the day, like growing up.

I don't think people... parents didn't know what we were doing most, you know, you're just off doing stuff with your friends, uh, you know, your coaches and seeing what you're doing on social media.

Yeah.

You're just off doing stuff.

So I suspect that in general, uh, behavior is better now on all in all environments, um, for, with kids.

Anyway, I think, I don't know that, but I just get that sense.

Just because of that reason that before don't be really knew what kids were doing, mostly

Elizabeth: I'm just... I was out

Mark: Just out. Just, yeah. Yeah.

Elizabeth: So, um, to finish, um, do you have any advice, maybe someone watching is thinking about a sports career and of course your son, Kyle is playing hockey.

Do you have any advice for anyone who...is thinking about not just hockey but any sport.

Cause I imagine you have to be so disciplined and focused.

Mark: Yeah.

I mean, uh, in terms of advice, I mean, if, if you, if you like sports and, and, um, I just think it's a great outlet, I guess, like anything, if, if it's, if you find something that you like doing and you enjoy doing it and you want to dedicate time to it, um, you don't have to become professional.

You don't have to achieve anything in particular.

It's just, it's just, I think it's, uh, it's good to have something that you're interested in and motivated in and like to spend time at and try to get better at.

And, uh, no matter how far you get in that activity, um, it's just a good discipline and a good thing to do and kind of sets you up for doing other things in life.

And, um, as we know with language learning, it's the same, the more in intrinsically motivated you are to, to, to study a language the better you're going to do.

And so the trick is to find those activities that you want to do, that you are interested in and spend the time and they should obviously, yeah.

A lot of satisfaction to be gained from, from improving in something and getting better and seeing results.

And that makes you want to do it more.

And so that, um, I guess if, if, if anything would be my advice in terms of yeah.

Playing sports.

I don't think the goal is to necessarily play professionally or be in the Olympics or whatever.

I mean, just should be a, can be and should be.

You want to strive to be as good as you can.

But I think a lot of the benefits are derived from just having gone through that process and enjoyed the activity and the people you meet along the way.

But I think, you know, most activities you meet people you're interacting.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I was going to say, I bet you have some really great friends.

I was envy people who played team sports because you bo... I guess you bond really well with these people.

So...

Mark: oh yeah, no question.

No question.

It's the, the, the, you know what I was speaking about how you spend so much time together with.

With, uh, guys on when you're on a team and you, you have a lot of free time and you spend a lot of time together.

So you, you, you just end up , there's a lot of laughs.

There's a lot of good times.

I mean, you spend basically you spend your whole day trying to make other guys laugh, um, they're doing the same.

Uh, yeah, it's, it's, it's a pretty enjoyable time for sure.

And lots of, yeah, you have that bond for life.

If I run into anybody that I've ever played with, it's just, you're just a great feeling.

Like I may not have seen them for 20 years, you know?

Yeah.

For sure.

Elizabeth: Well, thank you so much.

That was really interesting.

Thank you for answering my questions about all the violence and just the game in general, because I don't know anything.

Maybe I'll maybe I'll watch, I'll watch some hockey sometime.

Mark: Yeah.

It's not that... it's much better.

It's good.

It's I mean, I, I obviously still watch it a lot and um, you know, it's, it's, um, It's a very skilled game.

It's, it's a, you know, a lot of times people get distracted a bit by the violence aspect of it, but, uh, there's less and less at least fighting.

And, uh, yeah, there's body contact to try and separate guys off from the puck.

But, uh, the, the ability that the, uh, the skating and puck handling and the stuff that the guys do is it's amazing.

It's a very skilled game.

Elizabeth: I'll check it out.

Mark: So I'm glad I was able to explain a bit about it for you and, and, uh, hopefully you'll check it out when they are allowed to play again.

Elizabeth: Whenever that is then.

Yeah, I will.

For sure.

Yeah.

Thank you so much, Mark.

Mark: Thank you.

Thank you, Jah.

Elizabeth: Thanks.

Bye-bye.

Ok, b-bye.


EnglishLingQ 2.0 Podcast #3: Mark Kaufmann Talks About His Hockey Career (3)

I actually, yeah, I know.

I think you still hear about stupid stuff that happens, but I suspect that there's a lot less of it now for that reason that everybody is a lot more aware of what everybody else is doing.

And back in the day, like growing up. E de volta ao dia, como crescer.

I don't think people... parents didn't know what we were doing most, you know, you're just off doing stuff with your friends, uh, you know, your coaches and seeing what you're doing on social media. Eu não acho que as pessoas ... os pais não sabiam o que estávamos fazendo mais, você sabe, você está apenas fazendo coisas com seus amigos, uh, você sabe, seus treinadores e vendo o que você está fazendo nas redes sociais meios de comunicação.

Yeah.

You're just off doing stuff. Você está apenas fazendo coisas.

So I suspect that in general, uh, behavior is better now on all in all environments, um, for, with kids. Então eu suspeito que, em geral, o comportamento é melhor agora em todos os ambientes, hum, para, com crianças.

Anyway, I think, I don't know that, but I just get that sense. De qualquer forma, acho que não sei disso, mas acabei de perceber.

Just because of that reason that before don't be really knew what kids were doing, mostly Só por essa razão que antes não se sabia realmente o que as crianças faziam, principalmente

Elizabeth: I'm just... I was out Elizabeth: Eu só ... eu estava fora

Mark: Just out. Mark: Acabei de sair. Just, yeah. Yeah.

Elizabeth: So, um, to finish, um, do you have any advice, maybe someone watching is thinking about a sports career and of course your son, Kyle is playing hockey. Elizabeth: Então, hum, para terminar, hum, você tem algum conselho, talvez alguém assistindo esteja pensando em uma carreira esportiva e, claro, seu filho, Kyle está jogando hóquei.

Do you have any advice for anyone who...is thinking about not just hockey but any sport.

Cause I imagine you have to be so disciplined and focused.

Mark: Yeah.

I mean, uh, in terms of advice, I mean, if, if you, if you like sports and, and, um, I just think it's a great outlet, I guess, like anything, if, if it's, if you find something that you like doing and you enjoy doing it and you want to dedicate time to it, um, you don't have to become professional.

You don't have to achieve anything in particular. Você não precisa alcançar nada em particular.

It's just, it's just, I think it's, uh, it's good to have something that you're interested in and motivated in and like to spend time at and try to get better at. É só, é só, eu acho que é, uh, é bom ter algo em que você esteja interessado e motivado e goste de passar o tempo e tentar melhorar.

And, uh, no matter how far you get in that activity, um, it's just a good discipline and a good thing to do and kind of sets you up for doing other things in life. E, uh, não importa o quão longe você vá nessa atividade, é apenas uma boa disciplina e uma coisa boa para fazer e meio que prepara você para fazer outras coisas na vida.

And, um, as we know with language learning, it's the same, the more in intrinsically motivated you are to, to, to study a language the better you're going to do. E, hum, como sabemos com o aprendizado de idiomas, é a mesma coisa, quanto mais intrinsecamente motivado você estiver para, para, estudar um idioma, melhor você se sairá.

And so the trick is to find those activities that you want to do, that you are interested in and spend the time and they should obviously, yeah. E então o truque é encontrar as atividades que você deseja fazer, nas quais está interessado e passar o tempo e elas obviamente deveriam, sim.

A lot of satisfaction to be gained from, from improving in something and getting better and seeing results. Muita satisfação a ser obtida, melhorando em algo e ficando melhor e vendo resultados.

And that makes you want to do it more.

And so that, um, I guess if, if, if anything would be my advice in terms of yeah. E então isso, hum, eu acho que se, se, se alguma coisa fosse meu conselho em termos de sim.

Playing sports.

I don't think the goal is to necessarily play professionally or be in the Olympics or whatever. Não acho que o objetivo seja necessariamente jogar profissionalmente ou estar nas Olimpíadas ou algo assim.

I mean, just should be a, can be and should be.

You want to strive to be as good as you can.

But I think a lot of the benefits are derived from just having gone through that process and enjoyed the activity and the people you meet along the way. Mas acho que muitos dos benefícios derivam do simples fato de ter passado por esse processo e gostado da atividade e das pessoas que você encontra ao longo do caminho.

But I think, you know, most activities you meet people you're interacting. Mas eu acho, você sabe, na maioria das atividades você encontra pessoas com quem está interagindo.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I was going to say, I bet you have some really great friends. Elizabeth: Sim, eu ia dizer, aposto que você tem alguns amigos realmente ótimos.

I was envy people who played team sports because you bo... I guess you bond really well with these people. Eu invejava as pessoas que praticavam esportes de equipe porque você ... Acho que você se relaciona muito bem com essas pessoas.

So...

Mark: oh yeah, no question.

No question. Sem dúvida.

It's the, the, the, you know what I was speaking about how you spend so much time together with. É o, o, o, você sabe do que eu estava falando sobre como vocês passam tanto tempo juntos.

With, uh, guys on when you're on a team and you, you have a lot of free time and you spend a lot of time together. Com, uh, caras quando você está em uma equipe e você, você tem muito tempo livre e passa muito tempo juntos.

So you, you, you just end up , there's a lot of laughs. Então você acaba, há muitas risadas.

There's a lot of good times.

I mean, you spend basically you spend your whole day trying to make other guys laugh, um, they're doing the same.

Uh, yeah, it's, it's, it's a pretty enjoyable time for sure.

And lots of, yeah, you have that bond for life. E muitos, sim, você tem esse vínculo para a vida toda.

If I run into anybody that I've ever played with, it's just, you're just a great feeling. Se eu encontrar alguém com quem já toquei, é que você tem um sentimento ótimo.

Like I may not have seen them for 20 years, you know? Como se eu não os tivesse visto por 20 anos, sabe?

Yeah.

For sure.

Elizabeth: Well, thank you so much.

That was really interesting.

Thank you for answering my questions about all the violence and just the game in general, because I don't know anything. Obrigado por responder minhas perguntas sobre toda a violência e apenas o jogo em geral, porque eu não sei de nada.

Maybe I'll maybe I'll watch, I'll watch some hockey sometime. Talvez eu, talvez, eu assista, eu assisto um pouco de hóquei algum dia.

Mark: Yeah.

It's not that... it's much better. Não é isso ... é muito melhor.

It's good.

It's I mean, I, I obviously still watch it a lot and um, you know, it's, it's, um, It's a very skilled game. Quero dizer, eu, obviamente, ainda assisto muito e, sabe, é, é, um, é um jogo muito habilidoso.

It's, it's a, you know, a lot of times people get distracted a bit by the violence aspect of it, but, uh, there's less and less at least fighting. É, é, sabe, muitas vezes as pessoas se distraem um pouco com o aspecto da violência, mas, uh, há cada vez menos, pelo menos, brigas.

And, uh, yeah, there's body contact to try and separate guys off from the puck. E, uh, sim, há contato corporal para tentar separar os caras do disco.

But, uh, the, the ability that the, uh, the skating and puck handling and the stuff that the guys do is it's amazing. Mas, uh, a habilidade que a, uh, a patinação e o manuseio do disco e as coisas que os caras fazem é incrível.

It's a very skilled game.

Elizabeth: I'll check it out. Elizabeth: Vou dar uma olhada.

Mark: So I'm glad I was able to explain a bit about it for you and, and, uh, hopefully you'll check it out when they are allowed to play again. Mark: Fico feliz por poder explicar um pouco sobre isso para você e, uh, espero que você dê uma olhada quando eles puderem jogar novamente.

Elizabeth: Whenever that is then. Elizabeth: Seja o que for, então.

Yeah, I will.

For sure.

Yeah.

Thank you so much, Mark.

Mark: Thank you.

Thank you, Jah.

Elizabeth: Thanks.

Bye-bye.

Ok, b-bye.
