Right smack dab in the middle of the Holidays right as Chanukah came to an end and as the Christmas Express barrels towards the 25th, the NHL and the NHLPA have somehow managed to put aside their usual Mutually-Assured-Destruction-caliber negotiating tactics to put a little something under the tree and into the stockings of hockey […]
vs Game Time: 9:30PM CDT TV/Radio: NBC Sports Chicago, NBCSN, WGN-AM 720 Supporting Caste: Copper n Blue, Oilers Nation It was never going to be as straightforward as it felt like it might be during the first 40 minutes of Game 1 on Saturday afternoon. That fact was smashed home with the force of Mjolnir and the speed […]
Welp, they’re gonna go through with it. A close-contact sport during a spreads-via-close-contact pandemic played by a collection of rockheads who breathe way too hard through their mouths as a matter of course, pushed and propped up by a cavalcade of immorally wealthy assholes who wouldn’t care what a virus did if it weren’t simultaneously […]
HEARD YOU MISSED US, WE’RE BACK. So restarts are starting to rumble to life across all the North American sports whether it’s a good idea or not, and that includes the NHL.

While this country has in no way earned the right to begin discussing the resumption of team professional sports in the way that South Korea has with baseball, or Germany has with Bundesliga soccer given the ghastly disparity in how the pandemic has been handled in the those places versus the United States, the NHL […]
We’re back once again in the midst of the lockdown with a very special Director’s Cut episode featuring friend Ashok Selvam (@Shokdiesel) of Eater Chicago to join us to discuss the talk of the sports universe right now in The Last Dance, as well as share his expertise in the brave new world that the restaurant […]
Since we’re going to reminiscing on HotMic later on (Promo Code CLOWNSHOES), you might as well get yourself into a bit of a lather with some pregame reading. With that, we’re proud to present to you Sam’s issue of the program from that evening. 5-29 vs. Philadelphia (Game 1)
As the global situation rolls on, we’re still here discussing alternative plans for the leagues, and god knows what else. Audio after the jump. Sky point John Prine.
