Main Leafs Hockey Talk / All or Nothing
« on: October 01, 2021, 08:20:15 AM »
So the show has appeared on Prime today. After much internal debate, I finally relented and watched the first episode on my lunch break and certainly it's an interesting insight. Some good behind the scenes practice stuff, lots and lots of swearing, a little spat between Keefe and Matthews.

Dubas is a Man City fan.

I enjoyed it and looking forward to episodes 2,3 and 4. Might skip episode 5 though  :D

Perfect aperitif before my first live game of hockey since January 2020 this evening!

Phenomenal US Open final between 18 year old Briton Emma Raducanu and Canadian 19 year old Leylah Fernandez.

Radicanu, the first qualifier to ever win a grand slam, but I think there’s some seeds of a long term rivalry there….

Fernandez made Raducanu win it, barely put a foot wrong.

Former Leafs: Ex-Files / Alex Steen

Retires.


One I thought we cut adrift too soon, and who had a very acceptable career in the end

All Sports But Hockey / Formula 1 Incident
« on: November 29, 2020, 02:16:51 PM »
One of the most incredible crashes I have seen in years today in Bahrain. Romain Grosjean clipped a rear wheel on another car and careered across the track hitting a metal barrier straight on. His car split in two and erupted into flames instantly. He walked away from the incident and it looks like some burns to his hands and a couple of broken ribs.

The videos and photos are both incredible and terrifying. The safety standards that have allowed him to walk away from this deserve credit.

The Masters. Tiger sitting just being the leaders. Would be some story if he could claim the win tomorrow... I hope he does too

Non-Hockey Chatter / Podcasts
« on: November 08, 2018, 09:28:09 AM »
So this is kind of following on from Rick's post over on the main forum about Leafs/hockey podcasts.

Are there any podcasts of any genre that you've listened to and would recommend? Share them here!

There's a couple that I really enjoy.

1 - BBC Radio Five Live Kermode and Mayo's Film Review - this is a weekly show on BBC Radio reviewing movies, it cocvers the UK top 10, that week's new releases, DVD releases etc. Obviously it is UK based so the release dates may not match up, but it's a fantastic listen with 2 really good broadcasters who have created a show that you could probably listen to even if you weren't a movie watcher. The quality of guest and the quality of the interviews with those guests is a different level also.

2 - The Teacher's Pet - this is one of those "true crime" things that seem to be very popular at the minute. Focuses on an Australian rugby league star/school teacher, his disappeared wife and his school girl that he taught mistress from the early 1980s.

3 - Nike Trained - I found this one lately as the episode that caught my attention was with 3 time Crossfit Games champion Mat Fraser. However as a bit of a fitness geek I found the other interviews to range from interesting to making me quite... incredulous. Obviously it's a bit product placement-y but all the interviews are well done and range from topics on things like nutrition to sleep to trying to break records (an episode by the scientist who ran the attempt to run a sub 2 hour marathon) and even mindfulness.

Former Leafs: Ex-Files / Say Goodbye to Tyler
« on: July 01, 2018, 11:51:49 AM »
3 years at $5m in St Louis being reported.

I liked him, basically a "free" signing. Never really let anyone down and put in the heart and effort.

But right not to pay him that.

All Sports But Hockey / World Cup Russia 2018
« on: June 13, 2018, 06:27:18 AM »
Starts tomorrow so where's your money?

Spain sack their coach the day before the tournament so that either destroys their chances or maybe galvanises the side.

Germany always likely to be there or thereabouts.

Brazil needing to bounce back after their embarrassment at their home world cup last time round.

England to be hyped by the English press irritating the rest of the UK into hating them even more and supporting Panama/Tunisia/Begium

Also: Keep an eye out for the Croatia v Nigeria game for the clash of the greatest football kits of the tournament

CHL & NCAA Hockey / Euro Hockey
« on: October 26, 2017, 11:23:16 AM »
Just since I can't think of anywhere else to put this, a thread for people who maybe follow Euro hockey, including our overseas members like myself.

Anyway in the top UK Elite League this incident happened on Sunday. Apparently worth a one game ban. Feel free to discuss.

(Leafs link, Belfast coach is Sheldon Keefe's brother, Adam)


In other news the player on the end of the attack was banned 3 games for kicking

Ok Blue Jays Talk / Home Run Derby
« on: July 10, 2017, 09:28:24 PM »
Haven't actually sat and watched one of these in a while and I don't recall there being a time limit before, but that timer is making some quite entertaining matchups.

Judge v Bour was a great contest. And some of these guys hit the ball really, really hard.

To one and all. Treat yourselves to a Guinness!

And remember, it's St Paddy, not St Patty
