Recorded live at The HiVE Social Space in Vancouver, BC on Friday, June 16th, 2017. The Real Good Boys bring the show before an audience for the second time ever, and are joined by perennial favourite Chris James for a 'Where Are They Now?' on the storied athletes of the Pro Bowling Association, and Stefan's mother Elizabeth Heck for speculation on pro athlete penises. PLUS: Justin and Stefan solved the Akron Pooper case back in January and finally decide to talk about it. No, really. For real.
This week on the show that just gets worse as time goes on, comedian KEVIN BANNER returns to the show to talk No Fear T-shirts, bad junior hockey teams, Mike Komisarek's Brazzers password, and getting punched in the head by the hardcore legend Sabu. PLUS: Hangable or bangable? Kurt Eichenwald's parn problem! And Stefan makes a major announcement (that he got a fidget spinner).
This week on the show that uses Listerine before every game, our resident Auston Matthews insider and Dalhousie Tigers forward JACKSON PLAYFAIR returns to the show, joining the Real Good Boys in studio for the very first time! We discuss death by drinking water, bad radio contests, Rasputin's dick, and early 2000s Russian NHLers. PLUS: Jackson shares some all-time great trash talk stories from his WHL days! And the Subban/Crosby altercation has us examining the ordinary off-ice lives of NHL superstars for evidence that they're real people too.
This week on the show with no life and nothing to lose, cartoonist and comedian JACOB SAMUEL joins the Real Good Boys to discuss... well, salad mostly, as John reveals himself to be one of Hockey Twitter's awful food opinion-havers. The Stanley Cup Final is happening also, but it's a lot of salad talk if I'm being honest. PLUS: Joey Votto! The Ottawa Senators! And we draft inter-sport teams to compete against each other in one of the best Mailbag questions ever.
This week on the show that sounds like it's replacing YOU, we've got a real lost episode on our hands as #92 got locked up in the RGS Vault. Filling in in a pinch on an emergency podcast is emergency guest CHRIS JAMES, a perfect replacement guest on an adequate replacement episode. A day after we went in depth on the draft we barely talk sports at all, as Chris shares in-depth stories of his comedy encounters with Chris Kattan and Dan Nainan. PLUS: Death of the Cork Hat! The return of John Cullen's Roller Report! And Stefan and Chris wade back into the disgusting waters of Rule 34. "I'm Mango!"
This week on the show that doesn't know how you cheer for a guy like that, actor / writer / improviser DEVIN MACKENZIE of HIP.BANG and BLIND TIGER joins the Real Good Boys to discuss the futility of being good in the era of Curry and LeBron, his worst sports injury, and the doting fans of Dr. Indiana Jones. PLUS: John is tired! Stefan is wired! Justin expired! The one thing you're better at than every NHLer! And we reveal the prizes for the winners of the RGS Fan Art contest.
This week on the show that's long gone like the ex-girlfriend, comedian JENNY TOEWS joins the Real Good Boys to discuss outgoing voicemails, trips to the zoo, and bad experiences with edibles. PLUS: The Flat Earth! The best swear! Sports shamans! And would you literally die to win a championship?
This week on the show that's cooler than the seeds in a cucumber, Vancouver comedian ALEX SPARLING joins the Real Good Boys to discuss his Winnipeg Jets, the Penticton Young Stars tournament, whether coaches matter, and the sex appeal of Miss Piggy. PLUS: Tryamkin leaving, controversial Russian interviews, Happy Meal toys, and fan rally songs.
This week on the show that's taking that for data, mixed emotions abound for the Real Good Boys, as the Leafs have yet to be eliminated but John's already pre-emptively cool with it if they get knocked out (Ron Howard voice: "They're out."), while Justin's still salty about trading away Zack Kassian and Stefan is about as apathetic and tapped out as he's ever been. I also coulda sworn we talked about Tryamkin, but that must have been before we were recording. Whoops! PLUS: Kevin Costner's Waterworld! Breaking in to concerts! Justin Bieber! And being on the ice with the Queen. What do you mean?
This week on the show that keeps coming and coming and coming, BILLY TALENT bassist JON GALLANT joins the Real Good Boys in the immediate aftermath and elation of Leafs/Caps Game 3 to discuss his friendships with Maple Leafs players over the years, breaking the Toronto sports curse, the Dart Guy phenomenon, and the relationship between his sports pain and his music. PLUS: Justin plots a tent city protest against the Canucks, while Stefan has some questions about penguin biology for Professor Cullen.
