Do You BeLeaf In Miracles?: The Playoffs Are Rough
It’s your new homeboys (and favourite Leafs fans) Christian Holmes and Oscar Elieff coming at you from the GTA.
What’ll be cracking on the podcast today, party people:
In our second eppy ever, we’ll be talking ’bout:
- The Toronto Maple Leafs’ playoffs so far: the fear that unites all.
- How ’bout Game 3? Is it a cause for hope?
- The Nazem Kadri suspension.
- Holmesy’s rant on the lack of toughness in hockey. The classic nature vs. nurture argument.
- We talk about a book we think our listeners should read – Hockeywood. $1 of every sale goes to a brain cancer research fund.
- Life without Tyler Bozak and James van Riemsdyk.
So stay here and keep your stick on the ice, or as every Canadian’s favourite wrestler Chris Jericho might say, “You’ll get ‘IT!'”
