On this week’s show, Mike and I talk about the inaugural CFL podcast fantasy league. Our show will be competing in a fantasy football league against seven other CFL podcasts and believe me, we are playing to win. But it should be a lot of fun and we will update weekly on how we are doing.
Then it is time for some Ticats news, as we discuss Orlondo Steinauer’s promotion to assistant head coach, Simoni Lawrence’s contract extension and the craziness that is Brandon Banks’ continued absence from Ticats training camp.
Then we get into some CFL news, including the rash of recent retirements, with specific attention paid to Ryan Hinds’ decision to hang up the cleats, Henry Burris’ contract extension in Ottawa, Jennifer Hedger’s comments on Sportscentre that rankled the feathers of some Argos fans, and the Josiah St. John mess in Saskatchewan.
It is then game preview time! That is right, Mike and I preview this weekend’s preseason tilt between the Ticats and Argos at BMO Field, giving an idea of what we will be looking for in the first preseason game for the Ticats.
And we once again have a guest (as the title of the post alluded to) in 3DownNation editor Drew Edwards. I talked to Drew about Ticats training camp, some general CFL stuff, beards and when Drew met Mike. Believe me, that last story is the stuff of legend and we finally get an answer to “Did Mike puke on Drew’s shoes?” It was a great chat and one I am sure you will enjoy.
