We had a very special guest Friday on The KRNA Morning Show. Cedar Rapids RoughRiders head coach Mark Carlson stopped by for a fun interview!

The RoughRiders have two home games this weekend on Friday and Saturday. Both nights the Riders will go up against the Muskegon Lumberjacks. For more information, check out www.ridertownusa.com.

According to RidertownUSA.com, "Mark Carlson has been the RoughRiders' Head Coach and General Manager since the team arrived in Cedar Rapids. The RoughRiders won the Clark Cup in 2004-05 and the Anderson Cup three times in 2004-05, 2010-11 and 2015-16. Carlson was also named the USHL Coach of the Year in 2004-05, 2010-11 and 2015-16. Carlson also earned his 500th USHL victory in 2014-15".

Besides his love for hockey, I learned a few other things during our interview with Coach Carlson:

*His favorite music artist is Bruce Springsteen

*He jams AC/DC on the way to "The Stable" before games

*He loves a good steak and a cold beer

*He LOVES coffee

*He will be attending the Def Leppard concert next week

It was a blast having Coach Carlson stop by the studio. He's always been a friend of ours here at 94.1 KRNA. If you can, get to a game this weekend. The beer is ice cold and the hockey is red hot!
