The Week Ahead Podcast returns for its eighth episode. With Jay out of town, I chat with legendary Vancouver Grizzlies and Canucks announcer Al Murdoch about the great days that were when the teal and brown was splashed across the city.
It’s Part One of a two-part series, as next week we chat with Ekam of Ball Don’t Stop about what could be a return to the hardcourt for Rain City.
Meanwhile, it’s Rivalry Week in the NCAA and we cover every Top 25 game, along with the NFL’s three Thursday nighters and excellent Sunday schedule. Keep your eyes peeled for a laundry list of NHL and NBA games this week as well, except for Thursday. The NFL owns the night.
We once again give away another $50 gift certificate to Yagger’s Restaurants and Sports Bars, but we don’t stop there. We also serve up a fresh new ‘Movember’ pair of 2UNDR boxer shorts for our Grizzlies Twitter trivia winner.
Mike Dickerson. Those dreads were sick, plus he actually wanted to play here.

For our Sunday portion, we ‘Check the Chances’ as per usual across the NFL, courtesy of SportsInteraction. I give my best assessment of the games, with thoughts on the winners and losers of Week 12.
We hit every marquee matchup in the NHL this week and don’t forget the world’s favourite giveaway. Our ‘Shoot for the Suit’ contest continues onward and upward – where you can win a FREE custom tailored suit courtesy of Office Pools and Indochino.
