0:00 Welcome to the UNTUCKit Edition of the @TSNHockey #Bobcast.
1:22 Bob talks about Canada legalizing cannabis. While swaying to a J Cole groove, Bob has a hazy recollection of his summer between Grade 9 and 10, the Doors L.A. Woman album, and then emerges cool and slow from the Virginia swamps and enjoys Texas Radio and the Big Beat. (Editor’s Note: That Dickie Dunn-esque level writing from Chris from Canada).
8:33 Bob shows why it’s no suprise that Canada is at the forefront of the legal weed movement while paying homage to Cheech and Chong and Seth Rogen.
10:55 Bobby Corksoaker continues to lie to us (and himself) that he is just now "becoming" an insufferable Wine Snob. Bob describes sending 2 bottles of wine back in Positano, Italy. However, not thinking any of his listeners can determine good wine from grape juice, Bob dumbs it down for us by using sour milk as an analogy. Settle down Bob, you are drinking a blend. (Editor’s Note: Point well taken.)
16:53 Friend of the Show Will Joyce checks in with another year cancer free and Bob reads some listener feedback regarding MOvember and Breast Cancer awareness month.
25:16 Bobby Draper welcomes UNTUCKit as the new sponsor of the #Bobcast. The legend of the Man from UNTUCKit.
28:40 A listener fails at humour and sarcasm.
29:36 A listener asks Bob to do some math regarding how a possible WIlliam Nylander contract could be structured. Bob outlines a few scenarios that could take place.
33:45 A listener questions why the Leafs haven't attempted a bridge deal at a $6.5 million. Bob explains why the Leafs value Nylander at $6.5 on a 6-year deal but
not $6.5 on a bridge.
35:47 A listener asks if, when a player is suspended, is there an option to punish the perpetrator’s team the next time they play against each other.
39:19 A listener asks Bob who is the best defenseman out of the 2012 draft: Morgan Rielly, Jacob Touba, or Hampus Lindholm. The results of Bob's highly-scientific (not really) flash poll of current and former GMs and coaches are Reilly #1, Lindholm #2, and Trouba #3.
45:24 A listener asks for an update on Clarke MacArthur. Bob was happy to find out that Clarke is living in Florida, feeling well and enjoying golf with Michael Jordan and former teammates.
48:52 A listener from Arkansas asks for an Eeli Tolvanen update and how does his AHL 10-game clause work.
53:10 A listener asks Bob about New York Ranger prospect Lias Andersson, who threw his silver medal into the crowd at the 2018 World Junior tournament.
57:26 A listener asks Bob how he takes his coffee. Bob outlines his disdain for coffee but talks up his love of tea. (Editor’s Note: Chris from Canada initially said tea bags, in his typical low-brow attempt at humour but since Bob drinks only steeped tea or uses a Keurig, no bag involved. Also, Bob always gets the last word.)
58:20 A listener asks if there will be an audio version of Everyday Hockey Heroes. Bob talks about a few of the stories in Everyday Hockey Heroes and his plans for a promo tour that starts this week.
