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.
