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.
With John off on tour, Stefan and Justin are joined by David Carr Fellow and New York Times Magazine writer Greg Howard to discuss Kevin Durant signing with the Warriors, the tackiness of Golden State's recruiting pitch, and what his departure means for Russell Westbrook. Then things get serious, with a frank discussion on how classist power structures at the amateur level create racial tension and disparity in traditionally white sports, and why "transcending race" is a lie. PLUS: lots of P.K. Subban feelings, Stefan's experiences in professional political trolling, and why Edmonton fans deserve to suffer.
It's a week of equally outrageous snubs, as P.K. Subban is left off Team Canada's initial line-up for the World Cup and Real Good Show is overlooked as one of Vancouver's Best Podcasts. Meanwhile, the Canucks' inaction at the Trade Deadline leaves us further incensed and the NFL Combine yields some flashy results. PLUS: Yoenis Céspedes goes hog wild! And a painful combination of WWE and Subway has us dreaming of Ric Flair cutting sandwich-inspired heel promos.
