A hockey game is playing in the background*

Meaning

Q: Finally, any special meaning behind the old college hockey game playing at the bar? Someone actually figured out which game it was.

I’ll be honest with you, we were excited to get hockey. I’m from New York. Some of the other writers are from Massachusetts. What’s on the TV in New Hampshire? It’s going to be hockey. Having said that, being able to show a hockey clip is not a straightforward thing. We were very fortunate that our postproduction co-producer Andrew Ortner was able to get in touch with somebody willing to let us use a clip for a very reasonable price because they were fans of the show. We were very, very lucky because any time you show anything like that you have to clear it, and sometimes there are issues. On the TV we also had something from the ShamWow guy; he sent a big box of ShamWows and Schtickys to the writers office. We were very excited about that. There’s also a clip of The Mouse That Roars and The Lady From Shanghai.
