The title pretty much says it all - it's the 2018 NHL Draft Show! We do this show during the draft and you get our immediate and unabashed reactions to the Canucks first round pick, plus the other wheelings and dealing around the league. Do you like what the Canucks did? How about the other teams? It's Christmas time for hockey fans!
It's just a little audio issue - it's still good, it's still good! Much like driving Hwy 101, this episode is an adventure, covering pretty much the entire world of sports. It's early in World Cup, but there have been some surprising moments. We recap the events thus far before switching gears to football of the CFL kind. The Lions kicked off the season with a win, although it might not have been a great one. The Mariners continue to keep pace in the American League, and has Seattle finally noticed?
Oddly enough, lots of hockey to talk about in June. We look forward to draft weekend and what moves the Canucks may or may not make. So much has happened around the NHL, with some very questionable moves happening already. Does this mean a crazy weekend ahead? All this plus a four iron in Garbage Time!
We begin the centennial episode of the Premier Vancouver Sports Podcast with something brand new. Get set to be blown away, or be totally underwhelmed. We aren’t mind readers. It’s been two weeks since episode 99 so there’s a lot to look back at and look forward to. It has been an amazing first 100 shows and we want to thank you, the listeners. Enjoy the 100th episode of Just A Bit Outside, and here’s to making the next 100 episodes just as amazing!
It's the penultimate episode before we hit the century mark, and we prove our worth with confirmation of an epic prediction that only a premier podcast could make. We talk some basketball, we give the Whitecaps some credit, and we look at the outstanding run the Mariners are on. Can they keep it up and break their playoff drought? The French Open has started as well, so of course we discuss a little tennis.
They may not be playing, but the Canucks are still making news, so we look at the recent prospect signings and talk about some of the journalism around the team lately. In case you missed it, the Stanley Cup Finals are underway - we predicted the Golden Knights to win, but the peeps picked the Capitals. Who is going have bragging rights? All this plus our best and worst in Garbage Time!
We all like food, but thinking? That's a whole other story. So many topics to discuss this week, it's hard to know where to start. We begin with the Whitecaps salvaging a draw in Dallas before moving onto baseball and the admirable job the Mariners are doing so far this year. Can they keep it up? CFL training camps have also kicked off, so we talk football, including the arrival of Johnny Football in Hamilton and the battles going on in Lions camp.
Hockey season is starting to wind down, as we head into the Stanley Cup Finals soon. The Jets dream is over, so is it time we stop treating Vegas as a surprise? The World Hockey Championships also wrapped up, with Anders Nilsson backstopping team Sweden to gold. Time for the Canucks to trade him? We also talk a little NBA before diving into our best and worst in Garbage Time!
You may not be the boss, but sometimes people need a boss to tell them what to do (or not do). Take Robinson Cano, who needs to be told steroids are not to be used, or Brek Shea, who needs to be told how to kick a ball. We discuss both, as the Mariners and Whitecaps are both facing some serious challenges coming up due to personnel issues. We also talk the situation created by the Cincinnati Reds bosses and the concerns Joey Votto has voiced.
It's playoff time, and we continue our coverage on the NHL, as the conference finals have started. Which teams will prevail to make our predictions come true? We even talk a little NBA, as it's down to the final four teams (you'll never guess who they are). All this and more plus our best and worst in Garbage Time!
Can you put lipstick on a pig? Sure, but it's still a pig. The old saying has so many applications this week, as we discuss many teams in need of more than false facelift. The Whitecaps, the Blue Jay, the Raptors, the list goes on. These three in particular had a very bad week, and an in depth look shows the problems go beyond a simple change.
There were positives this week too. We discuss the importance of the James Paxton no hitter (with a bonus geography lesson), and the World Hockey Championships, which have a distinct Canucks flavour to them. We also talk about the ongoing NHL playoffs (someone slayed a dragon), including updates on our predictions, and what the conference finals may bring. All this plus a degenerate in Garbage Time!
What is awesome sauce? Some people might say ketchup, others may say something with some garlic, or maybe it's another episode of Just A Bit Outside! We kick off this show with a review of the Whitecaps current situation, as some fans are starting to get restless. Will a home win fix what ails them, or is something more drastic needed like a culture change? We talk a little baseball as well, as the Mariners return home after a long stretch of road games with a very impressive record.
On to hockey, as Brendan rants on the quality of fans and the role we play in the performance of players and teams. Do we have unrealistic expectations that manifest in unfair assessments and poor results? We take a last look at the Utica Comets, as their season has come to an end, and what the future may hold for the team next year. Plus we update how the second round of the playoffs is going, and rave about the quality of hockey being played. All this plus our best and worst in Garbage Time!
What is a lottery? A chance at something where the numbers are not in your favour. Is there a chance to win? Definitely, but the odds suggest otherwise. We record this episode while watching the 2018 NHL Draft Lottery, and discuss where the Canucks ended up, as well as what the draft prospects may look like. We also get into the live feedback provided by our fans and listeners during the show. Is the number 7 pick a lottery win or loss? Tune in to find out!
We're still going - are you still listening? So much to cover in this show, starting with the embarrassment that is the Vancouver Whitecaps. We examine the causes of the current woes, and wonder if the only thing worse than the Caps has been the season for the Vancouver Stealth. We talk a little baseball as well, as the weather is finally good enough for the games to be played.
Did you know it's still hockey season? In case you didn't, we bring you up to date with all the ongoings of the Utica Comets first round series and what the Canucks prospects are up to. We then go in-depth into our first round playoff predictions, and look forward to what the second round will bring us. Can the Jets be the first Canadian team to win since 1993? All this plus our best and worst in Garbage Time!
