EXCLUSIVE: Interview with the C-Bucs' Kevin Kovat
All of you who say Kevin Kovat is no good this season can stick it where the sun don't shine. Kovat is the best damn Serger the C-Bucs have ever had. We got drunk the other day and put it all on the line. Read.
The Caprican: "Kovat's no good this season." You sick of hearing that?
Kevin Kovat: Yes, sir, I am.
The Caprican: At least you're not one of the Bucs requesting a transfer. What's up with that?
Kovat: Yeah, it's strange times behind the curtain, strange times behind closed doors...
The Caprican: Kovat, you're a great Serger. Don't let anyone tell you different. What's it like being the main attacking player on the team? You feel more pressure to perform, to please the audience?
Kovat: That's a good way of putting it - the Serger is kind of the "audience-pleaser" of the team. Always moving, going in on the attacks. I think the focus of the crowd eventually always winds up on the Serger. I'm not trying to toot my own horn, I think it's just the nature of the game.
The Caprican: You're kind of like the poster boy for the team.
Kovat: [laughs] I don't think I'd look good on a poster, but sure.
The Caprican: Sure you would. Kovat, what the hell is up with the C-Bucs this season? What needs to be fixed? Is it the players? The coaching? The bureaucrats who run the game?
Kovat: It is a weird vibe this season. We haven't been able to pinpoint exactly what we need to concentrate on. We've been strengthening every aspect of our game, hoping that if we do a sweep on all counts we'll fill the gap by default. I think it's got to do with synchronicity - we're all a little off out there, we're not watching each other, listening to each other as well as we should, we're not working as a team as well as we should. We need to tighten the screws a bit. We'll get there.
The Caprican: That's the spirit. Kovat, what do you think about your Voxrector spending nights in hotels with Tammy Lawns?
Kovat: [laughs] Jimmy's a lucky guy, what can I say?
The Caprican: What movie star are you spending your nights with?
Kovat: No movie stars for me. I'm just trying to concentrate on the task at hand this season, concentrate on the game.
The Caprican: That's great. But you got to get out there and enjoy the body of a beautiful woman from time to time, too, you know.
Kovat': [laughs] Sure, sure.
The Caprican: Thanks for the drink, Kovat. Good luck with the rest of the season.
Kovat: My pleasure.
