Sometimes winning isn't always positive, as the Seahawks found out this past week. Another crazy round of NFL action, with more significant injuries, and a couple instances of inexplicable self inflicted wounds. Of course we talk Canucks, as they hit a bump in the road in California, but we remind you it's going to be a long process, so chill out. Novemeber also means CFL playoff action, so we review the semi-final games and Geoff makes his predictions of who goes to the Grey Cup. All this and our usual best and worst in Garbage Time!
Are you ready to hear Geoff giggle like a pre-pubescent? Yes, it's episode 69. In this episode, we look back at the life and death of Blue Jays legend Roy Halladay. We rehash Brock Boeser's big night against the Pens and dissect the Canucks loss to the Red Wings and subsequent win in Calgary. Geoff sounds off about both endings to the Whitecaps and the Lions seasons, and Brendan gives his two cents about the Seahawks disappointing loss to Washington, as well as GSP's glorious return to the octagon at UFC 217. All this and the always popular Garbage Time.
You may be wondering about the episode title, and you'll have to listen to the end for the answer. Before that though, we get caught up on the surprisingly hot Vancouver Canucks, some questionable coaching tactics by the Whitecaps, and more exciting October baseball. Naturally we get into football, with the Seahawks big win, as well as other NFL happenings and the almost over season for the BC Lions. All this and the papaya extract mystery in Garbage Time!
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".
