We're all volunteers paying out of our pocket. We operate on a loss. If you'd like to help, it will be put to use running the podcast and we'll give you huge kudos on the show!
Episode 28 went out Friday, and today Episode 29 is out. #28 was more immediate reaction to Alife, and #29 is more of a summer wrap up.Thanks for listening everyone.
See you at the Canadian Tire Centre (air wrench) next year? :)
Listened to by fans all over "Near and Far"
I still haven't listened to the podcast but will this weekend, but I read the show notes and the most disturbing thing I saw was the Tank factor, if they do get tons of injuries again and this time can't overcome them or they just plain suck for some reason, (MacArthur and that Leaf stink) they don't have their own First pick. That will totally suck if they give Anaheim a really good pick besides what they already got.
Going to listen to this at work on Monday. I've only listened to the first half so far this week.
Here's something I was thinking about yesterday.... what happens if Detroit doesn't even make it into the playoffs or say, Pittsburgh/Chicago/ (some other team) looks like they have a better chance at a cup run... does Alfie bail on Detroit at the trade deadline?
Good show as always! Also if it's any consolation I think Winnipeg has like 2 or 3 casino's in one end of the city. So if you think that Ottawa is bad, just remember that out West, 1 million is a hell of a lot of people, ha ha! (I think WPG has like 750k or so, the entire province has maybe 1 mil, maybe a bit less)
SD - isn't MTS Center right in the heart of downtown? I also went to Bluesfest twice and it was maybe a 15 minute walk to the heart of downtown. There's still a lot of vacant land, but has now been committed to condos...yes MORE condos. The casino in Gatineau, which is about 10 minutes by car from downtown, is a fantastic location. I would never travel the 30 minutes to go to a casino out there, and it doesn't change the transit time. Games end late, and people need to go home because we need to travel. Bad location for the stadium and even worse location for a casino.
That's true... the MTS Centre is right in the heart of the downtown. I guess it'd be like if they put the arena in Portage LaPrairie (an hour out of town) and then tried to build a casino there.
That being said downtown Winnipeg blows (at least right now), all the stores close at 6 and there's no restaurants so everyone just packs up and leaves after the games. There used to be a bar across the street, but it went bust during the lockout. When I go to a game I'm usually home within half an hour of it ending.
