    TCA Ep1262: Ian Mendes On Becoming A Stand-Up Comic, Covering The Hockey Canada Scandal, Working Vancouver 2010 Golden Goal, The Sens & More

    Ian Mendes of the Athletic makes his return to the TCA Studio today for a pint and a wide-ranging conversation.
    Topics include his memories of working the gold medal game of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics on the anniversary of Sidney Crosby's golden goal, the story behind his recent appearance as a stand-up comedian, the differences between "sports reporters" and "journalists" in the context of the Hockey Canada scandal, whether this late-season charge by the Ottawa Senators is different than previous years and so much more.
    Here's a link to Ian's piece from the morning after The Golden Goal that we referenced on the show. https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/mendes-gold-medal-blog/

    TCA Ep1260: Lee Versage Returns To The TCA Studio Following His Vacation To Talk Sens, Vince Carter, Being *Right* All The Time & ... Curling?

    Well. We all knew it had to end sometime.
    Matt Robinson's reprieve is over.
    Lee Versage is back from Europe, back in Canada and back in the TCA studio.
    We've got tons to get to including the Nashville Predators grounding their players and not allowing them to go to the U2 concert in Vegas, what differences LeeVer is looking for in the Ottawa Senators, Vince Carter's comments this week that e'd like to go in to the NBA Hall of Fame in a Toronto Raptors jersey, a big change in the curling world that has him all fired up and of course Lee takes some time to gloat about how right he was about Morgan Rielly and Sheldon Keefe being geniuses following a Toronto Maple Leafs 5 game winning streak.

    TCA Ep1259: Andrew Stoeten On The Opening Of Toronto Blue Jays Spring Training And What's Ahead This MLB Season

    TCA Ep1259: Andrew Stoeten On The Opening Of Toronto Blue Jays Spring Training And What's Ahead This MLB Season

    MLB Spring Training is underway and the Toronto Blue Jays all reported to camp. That makes it a perfect time to touch base with our man Andrew Stoeten from The BatFlip.ca.
    We find out what Stoeten has thought of the Jays' off-season, whether he's surprised with their level of activity and which additions are for real and which are flyers.
    Plus - how does the rest of the division shape up and what are reasonable expectations for Toronto in the AL East?
    Lots of thoughts on Manoah, an infield in flux, salary considerations, the rotation, Vlad & Bo, which kids could push for a spot and so much more.
    check out Stoeten's writing at: https://stoeten.substack.com/

A few of my favourite things!

The best local Ottawa podcast talking about a few of my favourite things… beer and sports (mostly hockey!). Always has amazing guests - the who’s who of hockey! He also has the highest quality sounding pod, and that’s something I appreciate.
Despite the fact that Matt is a blue team fan, I don’t hold it against him, but love to mix it up a bit slagging each others teams on the pod and on the X. Keep it up Matt! Cheers 🍺
