A shout out to the Muppets, as in this episode we salute Scooter Gennett for his four home run performance for the Cincinnati Reds. If you don't get the reference, look it up. The NBA and NHL playoffs are still happening - one is must watch and the other you wished you didn't have to watch. We discuss the Canucks hiring their assistant coaches, the Houston Astros dominance, and the French Open drawing to a close. All this and A-Rod in Garbage Time.
Even before you ask, it's Mookie Wilson, not Blaylock or Betts, and he has some great slump busting advice for all of us. If you didn't think it could get better than that, how about a couple Indy racing legends getting robbed at a Taco Bell Drive Thru? If that doesn't hook you, we still talk about hockey and basketball playoffs, as well as the Mariners recent blowouts. All this plus Garbage Time!
Maria Sharapova playing the French Open? Hard no. Mariners with a healthy pitching staff? Hard no. Correct NHL playoff predictions? Oh you better believe that's a hard no. This week we dive into the stand taken against a cheating tennis player, as well as the farce that is the NBA playoffs. We look back at round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs, including another Capitals collapse, as well as our conference finals picks. All this and more, plus our usual best and worst in Garbage Time.
It's the gift that keeps on giving, except you wish the gift would just go away. The return of LaVar Ball (aka Dick Ball) kicks us off before getting into the Canucks draft lottery balls and the poor attitudes that followed. We also look back at the first month of the baseball season, including early disappointments and stand outs. Double Coverage dives into playoff action for the NHL and NBA, where one of us forgets how to form proper sentences. As always, our usual best and worst in Garbage Time!
This week Geoff discusses his trip down to Seattle to see the Mariners and his inability to find the new hot menu item that is all the rage at Safeco Field. We also go in depth on the Vancouver Canucks hiring Travis Green as their new head coach, Nikita Tryamkin heading back to Siberia and the upcoming NHL draft lottery. After a stellar 2-6 record in his NHL playoff predictions, Brendan tries the do the impossible and improve on perfection. All this plus the NFL draft, NBA playoffs, and Garbage Time.
We begin this week's episode on a sad note, as we send condolences and discuss the tragic death of retired NFL tight end Todd Heap's young daughter. As hard as it is to move on from that, we discuss the tire fire that is the Toronto Blue Jays, the start for the Seattle Mariners, including a fantastic first three starts for Canadian James Paxton. In double coverage, we go in-depth on each of the eight first round playoff series and our "on point" predictions. All that and Geoff goes out on two major limbs in Garbage Time.
It's been a long time coming, as the Canucks season has officially ended, which means we start the autopsy. Who will the new coach be? Should we expect a busy off-season? Are Canucks fans and media ready to show the necessary patience for the road ahead? We discuss it all! But just because the Canucks are done, it doesn't mean hockey is over, so we make our first round playoff predictions. All this and a Masters recap, plus our always awesome Garbage Time!
This episode is truly a podcast unlike any other. With this being Masters week, we pay our respects to one of the most iconic events in sports. We also remember a Vancouver sports broadcast pioneer we lost this past week, and give you a taste of his controversial work, courtesy of CKNW. All this plus our World Series picks, some awful officiating to end March Madness, and the final chapter of the career of a WWE legend at Wrestlemania. Garbage Time and shoutouts to end as always.
Now that the Raiders are officially headed to Las Vegas, the only question left is will fans show up to Raiders games in Oakland or will they burn the stadium to the ground? It's a legitimate question. Speaking of football, is the CFL finally learning how to market itself? We talk a little golf, since the best tourney of the year is coming up, and of course we continue the discussion on the Canucks rebuild and looking ahead to the competition for spots heading into next year. All this and more, including some "special" shout outs in Garbage Time!
Yes, Vancouver Canucks fans, there are three types. The question is, where do you fit? Geoff believes most belong to one group while Brendan makes his plea for a change in mindset. We also discuss the upcoming season for the Seattle Mariners and possibility of a major change for the Seattle Seahawks. Stay tuned for Garbage Time and we look into the theory that Shaquille O'Neal's poor free throw shooting may have to do with the fact he believes the world is flat.
