This week on the show here to talk about Bose Horvats and Brock Bozo, former Vancouver sports radio producer / host turned international man of mystery MIKE MARTIGNAGO joins the program for an update on what he’s been up to since going off the grid, the grind of trying to live the dream, Francesco Aquilini’s Twitter, Trevor Linden’s redemption, John Weisbrod’s bizarre resumé, the ongoing scandals surrounding Whitecaps FC, a spirited debate on whether sports newsroom employees are allowed to feel joy over positive results, and an inside scoop on Kawhi’s off-season plans. PLUS: Ralph Rantignago shares his experiences with wage theft, and we share memories of our friend Jason Botchford.
This week on the show that’s just gonna bypass that question because improvement will lead to success, John returns to the show fresh off his successful stint at JFL performing as his beloved Southern Momma character and he's full of fire and rage as two of the most contentious debates in RGS history break out over... (checks notes) Troy Stecher and salad. PLUS: Trevor Linden leaves the Canucks! We debate the ceiling of Elias Pettersson! Jim Harbaugh thinks eating chicken gives you brain diseases! New holiday mascots! And Justin comes out swinging against The Office.
This week on the show that ain't gettin' this one, boys, we prepare ourselves to say goodbye to Henrik and Daniel Sedin, as the twins who have embodied Vancouver hockey for nearly 20 years prepare to hang up the skates for good. PLUS: Budgeting out the cost of a human litter box! Turtle sandbox! And we get to the bottom of the bad American pronunciations of "decal", "pasta" and "about".
This week on the show that can barely read, mate, the Real Good Boys get back to their roots with some hardcore, post-Trade Deadline discussion/depression about the Canucks. John moderates a discussion of the team's direction with Stefan and Justin, who grow increasingly despaired and try to decide if the Canucks will win a Cup while any of us are alive. PLUS: Roger Ebert! Building a statue of ourselves! Action figures! And the return of Steven Adams to Clip of the Week!
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 won't go to North Korea, we've all got our reasons to be happy: the Leafs are in the playoffs, and the Canucks have fired head coach Willie Desjardins. We happily bury the coach who gave our show its name, and sort out why Leafs fans would have been mad if their team didn't make it in. PLUS: Judging the accuracy of Vancouver video game levels, predicting the big stories of two months from now, a Twilight Zone-esque bargain to get rid of Linden and Benning, and everyone's favourite game: What's The Weather? RIP Willie, gone but never forgotten.
This week on the Canadian Comedy Award Participation Trophy-winning program, we have a blast with Devang Desai (formerly of Toronto FC, now panning for gold out west). It's a big show beyond just the funny number, as Stefan gets a hot scoop on Jim Benning's use of analytics. The Canucks played the Leafs... Is this even a rivalry? And with TFC in the MLS Cup Final, what is the soccer culture in Toronto? What is the future of MLS? PLUS: Devil sticks! Eating a puck! iPod vs. Zune! And we come up with the best damn sports-playing animal movie of all time, UFSea.
The return of NHL hockey (and a hot start from Auston Matthews) brings elation for John and a torrential outpouring of sports pain from Stefan, as the wounds of June feel fresh once more. PLUS: Nick Kyrgios effortlessly lands back in hot water, we re-examine the Lone Wolf Tenor and his shameful act, and Justin reflects on sizeable roadkill and Thanksgiving Dinner at the Heck House.
This week on a lengthy show with a plump runtime, Justin and Stefan are reeling in the immediate aftermath of the Canucks acquiring Erik Gudbranson from the Florida Panthers. If miserable sports pain is what keeps you coming back to RGS, this one's a doozy. PLUS: We're joined by Dick Pud, head of cyber security at KattWillFerrell Enterprises LLC, who tells us how he repelled ISIS forces from the popular Twitter parody parody account. Oh, and the NHL and NBA playoffs roll on, with great surprises!
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.
