Episode Eight - Corolla Corolla
This weeks show sees the guys take a deep dive into some trade talk, discussing both the NBA and NFL in this light, as well as a discussion on the NHL, too.
The show begins with the guys discussing the enormous James Harden trade, trying desperately to figure out what his weight loss program was so they can market it for personal gain. Justin reminds everyone that he called this trade package on the show weeks ago, and demands that the Rockets give him a job.
The guys then revisit their NFL playoff brackets to see who is still in good shape. As of right now, it looks like Tristan has taken the lead. Fresh off of being right about Harden, Justin predicts that Jalen Ramsey will clamp Davantae Adams and put him in the child's seat, en route to a Rams victory... His bracket is busted.
The guys stick with the NFL chatter and discuss the Deshaun Watson story, shifting from one disgruntled super star (Harden) to another one who wants out of Houston.
This is followed up by a Leafs update as Brendan and Producer Will see no need to panic this early in the NHL season. However, they do seem to yearn for the days when David Clarkson patrolled the ice for the blue and white.
After the hockey talk wrapped up, Justin gives a colourful review of the worst hip hop song of all time, Corvette Corvette, and its official spokesperson, Juju Smith-Schuster.
As always, Producer Will then closed out the show with some quick hits, wrapping up the week that was in sports.
Episode Seven - The Doug Pederson Inquiry
The guys take a deep dive into the NFL this week, and mix it up a little bit with some MLB talk in light of the offseason being in full swing.
The show begins with the guys making their NFL playoff bracket predictions. Follow along to see who gets the most predictions correct. They also discuss whose legacy would benefit the most from winning a Super Bowl this year.
Then they shift their focus to Doug Pederson, and actually manage to have a full conversation on the topic instead of quitting three quarters of the way through.
One of our hosts stays firm in his defence of the New England Patriots not being cheaters, not sure if all our team agrees.
Then the conversation shifts over to the MLB and a preview of the Blue Jays' season. What are the guys' thoughts on missing out on Lindor?
As always, Producer Will finishes up the show with some Quick Hits from the week that passed.
Episode Six - Walking Bucket
The guys return from their Holiday Hiatus and drag Producer Will out from behind the curtain to discuss the NFL, NHL, and College Football.
The guys begin with the NFL, discussing the J-E-T-S and how they absolutely gift-wrapped the Jaguars a generational talent in Trevor Lawrence (spoiler, one of our hosts is VERY excited about this development).
The guys then segue into a discussion about the College Football Playoffs and whether or not the rules should have been bent to allow the Ohio State Buckeyes to get a playoff berth.
After that, the conversation turns to the NHL for the first time during the podcasts brief history, and Producer Will jumps into a conversation about the Maple Leafs off-season acquisitions and whether or not they are the team to beat in the Canadian Conference.
This episode also saw the introduction of the show's very first "segment", where Yoshi, Tristan and Producer Will took turns quizzing Justin and JC on 'hockey talk' to see who could guess the meanings of the most hockey colloquialisms.
Finally, Producer Will wraps up the show with some quick hits, keeping us up to date on some of the latest headlines.

Episode Five - Jerry-Atrics
On today's episode, join the guys for a jam-packed show with more topics covered than ever before, as they discuss the NBA and NFL.
The guys begin with the NFL, discussing what the Eagles' victory over the Saints last week means for Carson Wentz. Our hosts recall JC's comments about "Walking through those bums".
Switching gears, the guys then talk about the ongoing James Harden, aka the Strip Club King, and what the latest updates mean for his tenure in Houston.
The conversation then turns to Giannis' massive extension to stay in Milwaukee and how that impacts the Bucks as well as the other teams who wre hoping to sign him in FA.
After this, the pawns at the Scout Team discuss Kyrie's ongoing beef with the media and whether or not he will be able to cleanse his demons in time to dominate the season.
Switching back to the NFL, they then discuss the epic duel between the Browns and Ravens from last week, chatting about whether either team's starting QB is the real deal and if either squad can make a playoff run this year.
Finally, the guys wrap up their NBA talk by discussing whether or not Jerry West knows how to use ANY technology, as they unpack his alleged voicemail trying to recruit Kawhi.
To end the show, Producer Will once again provides us with some quick hits from the week, keeping us appraised of the latest headlines.
