The Must List: Max Domi

MONTREAL - Shortly after the 2018-19 campaign came to a close, we caught up with forward Max Domi to learn more about his likes in a variety of different categories.

ONE RESTAURANT IN THE WORLD PEOPLE MUST TRY

It's so hard to pick one, but I'll go with Harbour 60 in Toronto. The owner, Ted, is a family friend. When I grew up, he was family to me. His business is unbelievable. It's the top place in the city, and I've got his back. When I'm there, I'll get steak, mash potatoes and the Lisa's salad.

ONE CAR PEOPLE MUST DRIVE

I think my dream car is probably a Ferrari 488. My dad had a couple of Ferraris when I was a kid. They were typical red Ferraris, and the newest one is a 488. I saw it and said, 'Oh man! That thing is sick!' Obviously, that's a ways away before I can hopefully be able to get one of those things.

ONE TV SHOW PEOPLE MUST WATCH

Peaky Blinders. It's just unreal. The actors are cool. That's why I started wearing those little hats, because Peaky Blinders is my favorite show. You can watch it on Netflix. It's intense. It's just old-time living and I wish I was in that era. 

ONE ALBUM PEOPLE MUST ADD TO THEIR COLLECTION

In terms of a full-on album where you listen to it and every song is a hit, I'd say Beerbongs & Bentleys by Post Malone. Every song is legit. You can't go wrong with it. I've also seen him perform live. He's so talented, and he's my age, too.

ONE BOOK PEOPLE MUST READ

I was reading a book by David Goggins. It's called Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds. It's sick. You start reading it and you can't put it down. As soon as you put it down, you just want to go do something with your life. I'm a big motivational quote guy, and that really intrigued me.

Be able to motivate yourself when you have no external stimulation! There's nothing wrong with a little external motivation to get your going. But, we can't rely on it as our primary source of fuel. External motivations help a lot of us accomplish different tasks. We need to wear headphones in the gym while we run, we love watching tv while we walk on the treadmill, etc. There are many times in your life where those external distractions that help you accomplish whatever the task are no longer there. Once those Beats by Dre are off your head, you are now alone with your own thoughts. What are you going to say to yourself to get you through it then? It is very important that you learn to motivate yourself at any given time. People always ask me if I listen to music when I train. I don't because I am constantly trying to master my own mind. The more time you spend figuring yourself out, the easier it will be for you on your own to do the same job that you used to rely on the external distractions to get you through.

ONE MOVIE PEOPLE MUST WATCH

The greatest movie of all time is The Dark Knight. That performance by Heath Ledger as the Joker speaks for itself.

ONE BRAND OF CLOTHING PEOPLE MUST WEAR

The top brand would be Nike. Hands down, across the board I'm a Nike guy. I can't go against that brand. But, in terms of designer fashion, I'd go with Gucci. They're out there a little bit and they're a little aggressive. That's like my personality. 

ONE ACTIVITY PEOPLE MUST TRY

People should try hot air balooning. I tried that last year in Arizona, and it was pretty cool. And I'm scared of heights, too, so I was glad I was able to do that. I don't even like flying and this felt even better because you don't feel the bumps. You just go where the wind takes you.
