Roommates: Fowler and Palmieri Talk About Rooming Together on the Road
Ducks youngsters Cam Fowler and Kyle Palmieri have roomed together on the road the entire season and recently talked about the experience. (From the pages of Ducks Digest, the official gameday publication of the Anaheim Ducks.)

What do you like about your roommate?

Kyle Palmieri: We’ve been good friends since our first year at the [USA Hockey National Team Development Program], so it’s been five or six years now. I wouldn’t say we grew up together, but when you think about it, over the past five or six years spending that much time with one guy as a common denominator is pretty awesome. We’re lucky enough to room together. I think we get along really well. I know we have fun together.

Cam Fowler: He’s fun and he’s a good guy. We know each other well from the national team so we have some familiarity there and he’s always keeping me on my toes. He’s very quick-witted. He’ll give it to you but he’s able to take it. He’s always joking around sarcastically but he’s fun to be around.

Do you have any complaints?
Palmieri: The only thing is, one of us needs to establish control of the remote. That’s the one thing. Neither of us likes controlling it, having that kind of pressure. So we usually do a little scoring competition during pregame skates or practices on the road. The loser has to take control of it for the next little bit. Neither of us really wants it. We watch all the same shows but there’s a lot of pressure to put on the right one.

Fowler: He doesn’t like to control the remote so we battle with that a lot. We started that [scoring competition] now because it ends up someone just throws the remote at the other person and you just deal with it, so we’re trying to fix that.

What do you two usually watch together?
Palmieri:
We watch a lot of Seinfeld or if there are any good movies on we’ll throw those on. Just whatever is on, really. Doesn’t matter to us.

Fowler: We like movies. We watch Seinfeld and Big Bang Theory, stuff like that.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve learned about your roommate?
Palmieri: The weirdest thing is him setting a second alarm but still getting up on the first one. And then he just lets the second one go while he’s in the shower. It’s frustrating, to say the least.

Fowler:
He’s just getting hairier day by day.

Who takes more time getting ready?
Fowler: I think we’re pretty much the same there.

Palmieri: It’s pretty equal. We both take a pretty long time, but nothing ridiculous. Nothing like Nick Bonino. He’s the worst. There’s not much hair to move around, but he takes his time on each piece.

What do you think your roommate would say about rooming with you?
Palmieri: I’d say he’d have the same complaints like no one takes control of the remote. And I think some of my sarcasm kind of wears on him a little bit. I’d say those are his two biggest complaints.

Fowler: He would say I’m a great guy to have and he’s lucky to have me.
