Welcome, citizens, to the 116th episode of the Real Life Podcast, the show where the boys set up an itinerary and don’t really get to any of it. This week, the guys tried to stay on topic as they analyzed the Bob Nicholson/Keith Gretzky press conference, Connor McDavid’s leg injury from the weekend, the playoffs, and what to expect this offseason.
To start off this week’s podcast, the guys started with this morning’s press conference where both Bob Nicholson and Keith Gretzky sat in front of the media to discuss the issues du jours and offer their best available explanations on what is to come. Of course, those explanations and ideas were about as vague as anything the Oilers have presented yet, which left many Oilers fans with a sour taste in their mouth. With the Oilers missing the playoffs for the 12th time in the last 13 years, it’s hard to blame the fans for being cynical. Speaking of the playoffs, the guys debated on how much playoff hockey they’ll be watching or if the Oilers missing out again makes it too painful. Next up, Baggedmilk walked the boys through the #NationRoadTrip to Calgary and what it was like to see Connor McDavid go down with what seemed like a broken leg at the time. Needless to say, the entire vibe changed when the captain went down. Sticking with Connor McDavid, the boys ended things off by taking a look at the captain’s post-season press conference and how, for the first time, he dropped the mic like an absolute boss.
