Marner Gets Paid! Leafs Sign Mitch, Vladdy Jr. & UFOs


This week sit back, relax and crack open a cold one with the boys as a new segment makes its debut: Brewery of the Month. With the NHL season inching ever closer, Mitch Marner finally signs a contract with the Maple Leafs. With the deal done, the boys share their thoughts on the signing and what it means for the team and the fans. In Jays' land, or more specifically Vladdy Junior-ville, the boys speak on his lacklustre performance over the past months. Is this a sign of what's to come? And on the Raptors front Gasol sees success on the international level, the guys give their input on the upcoming NBA season and how they feel on the future of the Raptors post-chip. The mailbag is packed with questions on chicken sandwiches, best and worst named places in Ontario, and Zubes' favourite subject, whales. We wrap up with everyone's favourite segment - Sad / Not Sad
