A jumbo sized episode this week with a lot going on between Sox playoff fever/psychosis, The Beloved killing Jon Gruden’s career, and the looming spectre of yet another hockey season. Enjoy.
It’s been a busy transactional week with the Hawks, baseball, Da Bool, and The Beloved, and we discuss it all. It’s the director’s cut this week, thanks for listening.
vs Game Time: 5:30PM CDT TV/Radio: NBC Sports Chicago, NBCSN, SN360, SportsNet 1, WGN-AM 720 The Crime Solving Boat: SinBin, Knights On Ice That the Blackhawks are down three games to none to Vegas (or literally any team they could have potentially faced in the first round of the real playoffs) is not surprising in the least. It was always going […]
It was always going to shake out this way wasn’t it? In a year where the Hawks finally tried to fully supplant Corey Crawford in net with noted asswipe Robin Lehner, or at the very least cover themselves against more Crawford injuries, the Hawks were out of it by the deadline, and decided to get […]
vs. RECORDS: Hawks 12-12-6 Knights 15-12-5 PUCK DROP: 9pm TV: NBCSN Chicago DIAMONDS AND DUST: SinBin Vegas You most certainly don’t feel like it, but if the Hawks were to get a point out of this one, and they only just got their first two points ever in Vegas in four tries last month, they […]

Clearly Sin and Music go together, as every person who’s thrown a bible […]

How does an expansion franchise follow up one of the most improbable runs in professional sports history after reaching the Stanley Cup final in their first year of existence? Well, in the case of the Vegas Golden Knights, they have zero self awareness regarding all of the good fortune that fell their way the year […]
Be better than the call. It’s a hockey cliche, but unlike most of them it has real application. You’ve heard it around these parts from time to time, but it’s thrown around anywhere that has actual winning tradition and real substance. In any playoff run, something will go against you. A bad call, an injury, […]
vs. SCHEDULE Game 1 in San Jose tonight, 9:30 Game 2 in San Jose Friday, 9:30 Game 3 in Vegas Sunday, 9pm Game 4 in Vegas Tuesday, 9:30 I suppose I should stand my ground, as I’ve believed in the Sharks all season, until their late-season pants-filling without Erik Karlsson. The fact that they finished […]
