Episode 80: Saddle Tramps (with K. Trevor Wilson)

This week on the show that would have money if there were no sports, comedian and actor K. TREVOR WILSON guides us through the Timegate to the land of the Saddle Tramps as we bid farewell to the IMDb Message Boards and discuss Rogers Video, pyromania, and K. Trev's Letterkenny problems. PLUS: Stefan seeks out the Lemon Party survivors, and we dig in to the most robust pack of Desert Storm trading cards yet!

Episode 59: Fields of Nodes

This week on a show sure to cause mass confusion, we take a break from sports almost entirely to revisit everyone's favourite classic RGS segments: The Taffer Tracker; Loonies, Toonies & Clip-A-Roonies; John's Nü-Metal Nook; Opening Listener Mail! PLUS: Make John Watch A Thing hits uncomfortable new heights.

Episode 2: Lipnicki's Law

The podcast got picked up to series! The boys are back for the sequel, and this time they're mad as hell. It's a little heavier on the actual sports discussion this time out, but tempers are high and the fans demand rage. Topics include: Phil Kessel, Zack Kassian, fathletes, cheeseburgers, drinky-poos, Bar Rescues and betting on break-ups. Plus: who would you dunk on? The return of Big Country's Dong. And the podcast bravely comes out as firmly anti-Hitler.

The hot dog vendor who parks daily at Front and John Sts. just lost his most reliable customer.
Almost every afternoon at 2:30 p.m., often wearing a toque, Phil Kessel would wander from his neighbourhood condominium to consume his daily snack.
And now he’s gone. Just like that.

Steve Simmons put a hit piece out on Phil Kessel, but it's unlikely that the first anecdone in his story is true. Phil Kessel doesn't live or work near Front and John, and it's unlikely that if he wanted a hot dog every day he'd walk halfway across a major city to a specific vendor at the busiest time of day to get one there.

Zack Kassian, beloved former Canuck. Cut down in his prime by a trade that made us mad.
