This week on the show that needed a few days to recover from last weekend, returning champions AUDREY & CHRISTINA from PUCK BUNNIES bring their belts back to the show to talk the NHL Draft, Tyler Myers and the problem with free agency, trading a first round pick for J.T. Miller, and their newfound celebrity status after rubbing shoulders with the NHL media elites and being recognized in the streets. PLUS: The girls go deep into Justin’s astrology chart, and Audrey is dying after one magic night at The Roxy.
This week on the show that’s all about prospects (except when it’s not), the editor-in-chief of Elite Prospects J.D. BURKE returns to the show to talk how the order might fall, the depth of the 2019 class, and which prospects Canucks fans should rejoice or cringe if the team picks at 10th. PLUS: The takeaway lessons of a bad Stanley Cup Final, how we were screwed no matter who won, the late-career utility of Edler and Tanev, and memories of our friend Jason Botchford.
This week on the show that’s still grieving, I reflect a bit on the takeaway lessons of Jason Botchford’s friendship and incredible professional impact, and how I feel changed personally and professionally since his passing. I wanted to put together a tribute show this week collecting stories from people who knew him like I did, and people who knew him better than me. But the timing didn’t feel quite right to do that. I couldn’t bring myself to do it, anyway. Not yet. But I did share my own stories of the man and the way he helped me with CHRIS FABER of CanucksArmy on his podcast, and with his permission have republished that conversation in full with my own introduction.
We bring in the big gun to break down Lena Dunham's silent brush with Odell Beckham Jr. at the Met Ball: Hollywood insider and Lenore Denim expert Jesse Farrar, who definitely knows exactly what Lingle Dingle's done this time. PLUS: The Raptors and Warriors sellout a Vancouver pre-season game in one minute! More Colin Kaepernick! The return of Make John Watch A Thing! A listener drops a staggering revelation about the Make-A-Wish Kids in the EA Sports NHL series! And hey man, don't say "whore" on the show.
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.
