A brand new week means it’s time for a fresh episode of the Real Life Podcast to get your week started while also helping you navigate the world around you.
To start off today’s podcast, the boys jumped in with a look at week one in the NFL season, specifically Jay’s feelings about his Cleveland Browns getting absolutely demolished by the Baltimore Ravens. Seeing as he’s an Oilers fan, how unfair is Jay’s sports life as he willingly watches two clubs that never seem to be able to win anything or even get anywhere close. The boys finished up their football talk by recapping the first week of NFL pick’em bets they made this past weekend, starting the season off at .500 between all four picks. From there, Chalmers told a passionate story about his new guilty pleasure — Love Island — a TV show that he’s legitimately embarrassed for loving, but one that he just can’t turn away from. Somehow, that Love Island conversation spawned a chat about minor hockey evaluations, and what sporting life looks like for kids trying to play during COVID-19. But what about for rec hockey leagues? The guys discussed someone of the specific league rules that they’ll have to contend with this season, and how smoothly they think these beer leagues will be able to operate. Lastly, the guys wrapped things up by welcoming Scott Hastings from OddsShark to the podcast as he helped to break down the NHL playoffs, betting trends from the NFL, and the latest news in the world of sports.
