Recap:

1:30 – Matthew Lombardi, New York Rangers

Matthew Lombardi said that he wasn’t expecting to go back to the NHL, but the opportunity fell in his lap and he’s excited. He said he got used to living in Switzerland. He said that coach Chris McSorley sold him on the idea of playing Genève. He wasn’t sure he was getting a contract in the NHL, so he said it was a great move.


2:05 – Dave Zirin, Edge of Sports & The Nation

Dave Zirin really dislikes Drake, saying he would rather gargle Draino than listen to him. He did think there were great moments at the ESPYS. He thinks that Michael Sam did a bang up job during his speech. He says that stepping back from the Oprah was the absolute right decision. He thinks Sam is doing the right thing opposed to Tim Tebow, who didn’t seem to actually think about making the team. He says that gathering in the streets of Brazil was dangerous. He calls the World Cup muted.

2:30 – Dan Shulman, ESPN Voice of Sunday Night Baseball/ TSN MLB Analyst (in studio)

Shulman says that Adam Wainwright is really smart guy and the incident with Jeter was blown out of proportion by the media. He says the Yankees aren’t a very good baseball team due to injuries. He thinks the Blue Jays are going on a key stretch of games right now and those games will be extremely important to gain ground on the division. He said it’s extremely hard to evaluate prospects and trade demands. He said it’s extremely important to build culture within the locker-room.

3 – Mark Zecchino, Golf Talk Canada (in studio)

Mark mentioned that the volatility on a leader-board is what makes Golf exciting. He noted that Mother Nature is a factor in the British Isles. That may provide the unpredictability. He hopes for a successful run by Woods. The positive demeanour of Tiger & his redemption of a slow start were encouraging for viewers. When discussing David Hearn, Mark brought up his game & how it may suit "old school" courses.

Recap:

12:40 – Chris Kluwe, former Vikings Punter

Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe comes on to talk about his intentions to sue the Minnesota Vikings over his release from the team. He’s doing this in hopes that the club will publicly reveal the findings of their investigation of his allegations of anti-gay conduct by one of the coaches. He thinks their investigation corroborates his story. He’s meeting the club tomorrow and hopes they can settle this outside of court. He feels he’s been red flagged around the NFL for his outspokenness on gay rights. He calls the NFL locker room an old boys club. He says he would be surprised if a contract offer would be extended his way.

1:30 – Warren Cromartie, Former Montreal Expo and Founder of the Montreal Baseball Project

Warren Cromartie joins the show to react to Bud Selig’s comments yesterday about Montreal being a good candidate for future expansion. He says that Bud Selig is not hated in Montreal. He thinks it was important to show the world that the Expos deserve a team back and talked about the success of the exhibition game between the Jays and Mets earlier in the year. He says Montreal has the necessary support and the Blue Jays have been very welcoming to helping his cause. He says that a stadium would have to be downtown and doesn’t think they will build a stadium before they get a team.

2:05 – Jeff O’Neill, Leafs Lunch Co-host

Jeff O’Neill thinks that Adam Wainwright was being an idiot with his comments. He was extremely impressed with how the Oakland Athletics have built their franchise. On the topic of David Clarkson he sees him getting buried if he doesn’t become the player the signed him to be. On the topic of the British Open, he thinks it’s make the cut or not at all for Tiger Woods. He questions who’s going to rise when Tiger leaves the game.

2:30 – Richard Deitsch, Sports Illustrated

On the topic of Derek Jeter, he mentions that Jeter was mentioned 100 times in the broadcast yesterday, which was less than he expected. The reverence, however, was exactly what he expected. He said that FOX scrambled with the Wainwright interview because they didn’t want him to imply the All-Star game was crooked in any way. He doesn’t have a solution to the sinking schedule of the All-Star game. He said the fact there aren’t any household names in the All-Star game is problematic. He thinks there would be a bump in other soccer leagues due to the World Cup.

3 – Cabbie from the ESPYs

Cabbie joins the show from LA to discuss the ESPYS, where he’ll be working the red carpet with Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson. He thinks Drake is going to be really funny tonight because he’s a multitalented individual with a variety of skills. He thinks Derek Jeter needs his own hall-of-fame section for the girls he’s been with. He also weights in on whether or not to trade Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love.

3:35 – Jason McIntyre, The Big Lead

Jason joins the show to chat NBA offseason and free agency and discusses the importance of flexibility in the NBA rosters of the teams that look to win next year. He weighs in the Wiggins/Love debate and thinks it would be a bad move for the Cavs to trade Wiggins. He saw the World Cup as one of the greatest sporting event he has seen.






July 15: Show In Review

Bryan and Steve Simmons discuss the NFL, Dion Phaneuf, and are joined by Marcellus Wiley of ESPN. Hour 2 Audio

Hour 2 (The Bryan Hayes Show):

Bryan is joined by Jason Sobel of the Golf Channel and James Johnson of the Toronto Raptors. Hour 2 Audio


Recap:

12:30 – Scott MacArthur, TSN 1050 Jays Reporter

MacArthur starts off by weighing in on Jose Bautista’s comments at the All-Star Game and says he was just being honest with the media- the turf at the Skydome is a problem and the Jays barely have any solid prospects in their system. The Jays see that they do have a chance at winning the AL East, the other teams in the AL East all have their issues and the Jays need to try and do something to improve the team and show they want to win within the next 2 weeks. The Jays need to let some players go, Sergio Santos and Colby Rasmus are two players the Jays should look to move in a deal and the next few games will likely dictate what the Jays will do around the deadline. The Jays would love to get a guy like Chase Headley - he is a guy that MacArthur thinks the Jays are after - and it would allow Lawrie to settle into one position. Martin Prado is another guy the Jays are likely looking at but his contract still has few a few years on it for a fairly high price.

1:45 –Marcellus Wiley – Former NFL All-Pro DE & ESPN SportsNation HOST

Wiley joins the show to talk about his part in the painkillers lawsuit against the NFL. He says players trusted in team doctors blindly, prescription drugs were being handed out to players, and the players didn't have the knowledge of what was being put into their bodies. Addiction didn't affect him personally but there were guys who used drugs as a crutch to get through games and seasons. He's had total freedom from ESPN to enter the lawsuit against the lawsuit. The NFL has to face this issue and become transparent about it so the culture can change. His motivation for joining the lawsuit is that everyone can truly hear the story of what is going on behind the scenes and in the locker room. There are a lot of players involved in this lawsuit and he hopes that it will change the culture of prescription drugs in the NFL.

2 – Tristan Thompson, Cleveland Cavaliers

Thompson joins Bryan to chat about working the ESPY’s Red Carpet tomorrow with Cabbie. He jokes that his plan is to be one of the best dressed people there and says he’d most like to interview Maria Sharapova of all the sports celebs. He talks about his expectations for Drake hosting the ESPYs and says he wouldn't be surprised to see Drake in Cleveland during the season with LeBron and Johnny Manziel both being there. He thinks Drake has helped put Toronto on the map and has made Toronto sports cool. Thompson says it’s exciting to be able to get the chance to play with LeBron and it was a good feeling when he heard LeBron was coming back. He looks forward to learning from him. It’s a crazy connection that's going on with Cleveland and Canada right now and it’s a great experience to able to play with so many fellow Canadians on the Cavaliers and be in a position to mentor them.

2:30 – Dominic Oduro, Toronto FC

He was rooting for Ghana in the World Cup and says it was pretty cool to watch his teammates play in the tournmanet, especially when watching Michael Bradley play against his team Ghana. The World Cup does interrupt the season but you learn a lot just from watching the games and it gives a bit of a boost to the MLS. Soccer in the United States has gotten bigger, events like the World Cup give it more exposure and the league continues to grow every year. The league has gotten more exposure since he first started and because of the TV and advertising he doesn't feel the need to sell the game as much as he used to.

3 – Jason Sobel, Golf Channel

Sobel joins Bryan to look ahead to the British Open this week. He says Tiger should make the cut at The Open but the more important thing for him is to feel comfortable and try to at least play well coming off the injury. He hasn’t been able to practice as much because of the injury troubles he has had. Tiger will always be shown primarily on any telecast of a tournament, so Sobel doesn't see anyone having a problem with ESPN's Tiger cam. Sobel thinks Rory McIlroy will play well this weekend and is definitely a contender, but the weather does affect his game a lot, and we could see two different McIlroy's depending on the conditions.

3:45 – James Johnson, Toronto Raptors

Johnson talks about why he wanted to return to the Raptors and what he loves about the city. He says it’s a good place for where he’s going with his career and how his game is building. He’s seen a change in the environment from afar when he saw the fans reaction during the playoffs. He said you could feel that something else was different about the Raptors and Toronto. He says he’s more mature about his game since he left and expectations from Masai and Dwane Casey for him is a guy that can accept a defensive challenge and play defense. The reports of him and Casey not seeing eye-to-eye were exaggerated at times and he feels like his relationship with DC is good. They didn’t make business personal. He weighs in on the growth of DeMar’s game as well and says Masai and DC have put a great group around him.





July 14: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bryan, along with Steve Simmons are joined by Jonah Keri to discuss whether the Blue Jays can overcome their injuries and compete in the AL East in the season’s second half, and Patrick Patterson checks in to chat about re-signing with the Raptors and where he sees the team going after their playoff success last year.

Recap:

12:30 – Kristian Jack, TSN Soccer Analyst

KJ joins the show to recap the World Cup Final and the tournament. He believes that Colombia's James Rodriguez deserved the Golden Boot ahead of Lionel Messi and this was another example of FIFA being incompetent. It gives Messi the opportunity to get in the headlines again, among other agendas. He weighs in on whether this German team is a dynasty and says they’ll be good for a while. Wthetehr they win Euro or next World Cup, they’ll be a tremendous contender. If Argentina had won yesterday, he would have had a hard time explaining why they deserved it. Germany was head and shoulders above Argentina. When talking about Brazil's 7-1 loss to Germany, Kristian notes that it was unprecedented in the sport's history. As perennial favourites, Brazil already had expectations, but being at home & losing in such brutal fashion was a shock to the system of all soccer fans.

1pm – Jonah Keri, Grantland

Keri believes that one trade won’t be enough to help bring the Jays back to form. With Lind, Encarnacion and Lawrie out the Jays have major problems and if they’re missing two of their best hitters for any extended period of time, one move won’t exactly help this team. When trying to make a case for the Jays in the playoffs, Jonah said that Dickey & Buehrle are strengths are their biggest strengths. Lind and Encarnacion must be up and running as soon as possible for them to have a chance, although still doubts that the team will be able to do it. The Jays have an easy schedule in an upcoming stretch of games. His sources tell him that there really isn't that much of a market for David Price and he thinks that Price will stay put until the winter at least.

1:30 – Dominic Moore, New York Rangers

Moore joins the guys to chat about his annual Ping Pong Charity Event, Smash Fest. He talks about the Stanley Cup Finals and says LA definitely deserved to win the cup and they were truly a championship caliber team. He says losing in the Finals is strong motivation for next season and the team will look back on the experience with fond memories. He says he didn’t think about his upcoming free agency because he was only focused on playing and embracing the experience of playing in those huge playoff games. He talks about re-signing with the Rangers and says he wanted to stay with them because they have all the things necessary to be a good team again next year, despite missing some of the key guys from their run. It’s tough to keep teams together when you have that kind of success because other teams want to poach that success. He also talks about his personal respect for Dan Boyle as a quiet leader by example.

2:15 – Josh Lewenberg, TSN 1050 Raptors Reporter

Josh says that he can sense LeBron's recent hype from Las Vegas and it overshadowed the hype of the first meeting of Andrew Wiggins & Jabari Parker. He suspects that the Raptors are counting on growth & development of retained players for next season. He sees the Pacers as a favourite in the East, but the Raptors don't seem much worse than that team. He also mentioned the Wizards & their potential with Paul Pierce. He’s had a chance to see Caboclo play in summer league and says his defensive effort has been noteworthy. Caboclo also seems to learn fast and absorb advice very well.

2:30 – Scott Raab, “The Whore of Akron”

Scott explained that the sports teams are the face of Cleveland and the 2014/15 Cavaliers are the best thing to happen to that city in a long time. He considers LeBron's return to be a heroic and admirable move. Scott said that this whole time period of hype between the Browns & Cavs remains strange to many locals. They simply aren't used to being a central news source in sports.

3 – Patrick Patterson, Toronto Raptors

Patterson discusses why it made sense for him to return as a Raptor, stating that a ton of things (the team, the brotherhood, the country) led to him being happiest and most comfortable in Toronto. He says he’s happy the team is back together, because he feels they can build on the success of last year. Patterson adds that the Eastern Conference, while overlooked, is getting better – especially with all of the recent free agent activity. On LeBron returning to Cleveland, Patterson says that – unlike The Decision in 2010, where players had mixed emotions – this time, LeBron handled his decision professionally. He also speaks about his development as a soccer fan, noting that he was just at the World Cup, and that the FIFA video game contributed greatly to his fanaticism. Like most, Bruno Caboclo was an unknown to Patterson, but he has been impressed with everything he’s seen from him thus far. He also speaks to the NBA Summer League, and says that, while younger players can’t experience Las Vegas, the Summer League is a great opportunity for them basketball-wise.

3:15 – Tyler Seguin, Dallas Stars

Seguin speaks about his annual charity golf classic later in July. He talks about his golf game, and says it’s pretty average, as he’s not a golfer during the regular season. In terms of a daily routine, Seguin practices and relaxes for the most part. He’s also not much of a football fan, despite living in Texas – though he notes it is growing on him. He talks a little bit about the celebrity of Tony Romo in Texas, and says while he’s sure Brady possesses a similar aura, he’s not sure how it’d compare to Romo’s. Seguin speaks about dealing with criticism, and says that while as a younger player, he’d check Twitter and take criticism to heart, now he just doesn’t care. He says he looks at his being in Dallas as an opportunity, and he’s going to continue to try and bring a new brand of hockey to Dallas. He says that while they were very competitive, all the young guys still want to show the General Manager what they’ve got, as he gave them an opportunity.

3:30 – John Herdman, Canada’s National Women’s Scoccer Team Coach and CBC WC Soccer Analyst

Herdman joins Bryan to look back on the World Cup and says he was able to appreciate the attacking brand of soccer played in this year’s tournament. He also looks ahead to the 2015 Women's World Cup and referred back to Brazil's blunder when he was asked about what a host nation has to achieve. The emphatic defeats of Brazil at the tournament's end were his lasting memories of this World Cup.
