On this week’s episode of Sports Management Laurier’s The Sidelines podcast, the gang recaps the Olympic action so far, as though we are only on day 4, Canada has already racked up 3 gold, 4 silver, and 3 bronze medals. We also talk about how Jimmy G got paid, and Evan makes the hot take that the 49ers are going to be a contender in the NFC West behind him. We talk NBA trades, and how the Cavs cleared house, the new Cavs looking fresh against the Celtics, IT’s time in LA, and how the Raps stayed quiet during the moves. Moving to college basketball, the Big 10 is dominating the standings, while Kentucky falls out of the top-25, and Duke, Kansas and UNC all don’t crack the top 10 anymore.
As for Leafs talk, the Buds are comfortably in a playoff spot by almost 20 points, while teams like Chicago are almost 10 points out. Liam admits that he likes Mitch Marner, at least for this week, and how the Leafs are fire hot after beating a top team that is Tampa.
MLB scout Evan lets us know about some offseason action in the Cubs’ signing of Yu Darvish, and, as always, we end with out 3 stars of the week, with the boys choosing Leafs players, and Hayley giving hers to the first ever mixed doubles curling champs.
