For the record, the title describes the show, not the band. Geoff laments the loss of Gord Downie before we get down to business, starting with the early reviews of the Canucks season, including the powerplay and injuries. Baseball inches closer to the World Series, and we dissect the final four teams. Football is still tops, with the Seahawks coming off a bye week and questions about Cliff Avril and the offensive line, as well as the BC Lions with another stinker. Is it time for the Leos to see what they have in some youngsters and make wholesale changes? All this plus our usual best and worst in Garbage Time!
Geoff dishes out a lot of credit in this show, as we enjoy that magical time of year where football, baseball, and hockey are all underway. We kick off with a review of the Canucks first couple games, including the positives and whether Brock Boeser should be playing. October means playoff baseball, and we look at how the divisional series have unfolded so far before getting into gridiron talk. The Seahawks enter their bye week after a big (and maybe lucky) win over the Rams, so of course we bicker about that, followed by discussing the head shaking collapse of the BC Lions and their issues, before our big finish in Garbage Time.
Yes, hockey season is back, and we devote this show to looking forward at what the Canucks year may bring. Will they be contenders, or will we need a whole lot of patience? Probably the latter, but there are some things to be excited about, including the ongoing developments in Utica and Europe. We dive into it all - let us know what you think!
A positive start with Brooke Henderson winning in New Zealand, followed by a post-mortem for the Mariners and Blue Jays, including the tough questions both franchises need to ask themselves. With football season in full swing, we recap a surprising Week 4 in the NFL and wonder how legitimate the Seahawks performance was before delving into the disaster season for the BC Lions offense and the wacky CFL season. All this and our best and worst in Garbage Time.
While we are a sports podcast, sometimes there are larger issues, and given the current situation in the United States, we discuss the hostile climate and the role sports is playing. Once that's out of the way, we recap the crazy on-field action in the NFL, including some shocking wins, and the growing concerns with the Seahawks. We also touch on the BC Lions offensive woes, and wonder what changes will be coming this off-season before topping it off with Garbage Time.
Back from a brief hiatus, and so much to cover! The weather change means hockey is upon us, so we talk a little Canucks before giving props to the Whitecaps for their recent run. We touch on a baffling consequence of the Vancouver Canadians winning the NWL championship, as well as the Salmonbellies Mann Cup lacrosse loss. Of course we talk football, with lots of NFL and CFL action, specifically the concerns facing the Seahawks and Lions. We top it off with Garbage Time and a salute to the passing of another wrestling icon.
This week we take on the role of Life Coach as we discuss the ongoing Ezekial Elliott saga. NFL football dominates the show as we make our picks for the final four and who will be representing the AFC and NFC in the Super Bowl. Geoff gives his lead pipe lock for his Super Bowl champion, so feel free to take it to Vegas and give him shit when he is wrong. We also look at US Open tennis and the end of the run for Denis Shapovalov, plus the ongoing overreaction of Canucks fans and media as training camp approaches. All this and an installment of Garbage Time that you might find a little "cheeky".
Stool could be any number of things: a seat in a bar, a nickname for Brendan, or a description for Art Briles. We cover all the options this week, but really focus on the disasterous decision by the Hamilton Ti-Cats to try to hire Briles. Beyond that, we recap the less than memorable fight from the weekend, as well as look forward to US Open tennis. Of course football is still the hot topic, with the BC Lions continuing their downward spiral and the Seahawks ongoing pre-season domination. All this plus our best and worst in Garbage Time!
Not often we have breaking news, but we did this show! We discuss the big Cavs-Celtics trade, as well as the latest on the Mariners. We also touch on the important subject of mental health, and send our best wishes to a local sports personality. Of course we talk football, where we rehash the letdown of a game the Lions played against the Stamps, and the huge loss and challenge now facing the Seahawks. All this plus our standard best and worst in Garbage Time.
P is for pathetic, which would most aptly describe the performance of the BC Lions as we look back at their game against the Roughriders. P is also for preseason, as Brendan disobeys Geoff's wishes and breaks down a positive first preseason game for the Seahawks. G is for Garbage, as sadly the thesaurus does not have a word starting with P, but as always we have our best and worst in Garbage time.
