Yo, yo, yo, What is up? What is up? What if up Wake up call with Avery Sports show is back Friday.
What's going on into the weekend? Hope you're all doing well.
Having a good time out.
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
So upwards off over.
Plus trading re Celsius gained two thirties getting too well past 85 degrees for those and Fahrenheit.
Every waking up with it.
We can call a re sports show on SportsCastr.
And, well, we got it back.
NHL of back NBA's back Soccer still rolling on and, you know, seeing the NHL back after so many days away.
It was interesting.
Not just the fact you've got 24 teams in two cities, but just the visual effect of seeing Vegas.
Arizona playing in Edmonton, seeing Minnesota and Colorado and eminent in seeing, uh, seeing Boston play Columbus in Toronto and knowing that this is a market, see me Canadians take the Maple Leafs home Dressing room was quite hilarious.
You know what if you get some pretty cool visuals with the fact that you have the jig camera that the the Jin Army being called going over the ice in it, an angle that you would not be able to see for a normal NHL game.
To the fans being in the crowd out.
Pretty cool seeing that.
And, you know, I thought that the intense he wouldn't be there freed exhibition games.
We didn't see fans.
We could see players.
There was fights, which I thought was surprising.
And we saw fight in Florida TEM Bay with Brian Boyle and McHale, Circuit Chef.
They fought, which I thought, Really, it's a game that really doesn't mean a thing.
It was a lot of fight in a pre playoff exhibition game, I think Diesel join our broadcast welcome.
And in Edmonton, Calgary, we saw the intensity of the ballot Alberta in again, which orders one Handley you still saw scrubbed in the corner with the flame to the Oilers.
But in that game, economist David looked really good.
Connor looked like you didn't miss a step at all, getting two goals in that game, world of goals, being an incredible no look goal when which he was looking.
He fooled they would rich and the entire time he was looking at Ryan Nugent, Hopkins taking the past.
You tired, very convincing.
Pass speak shot.
It didn't look origi entire time Well done.
Announced why Connor is still one of the best players in the NHL.
If carbon dated isn't on your top five, we got disgusting because your list is incorrect.
Your lift is not right corner of not there Of your top five players in the league.
There's no debate on that to me.
The thing is kicking off on August 1st August for a Saudi tomorrow that is going to be a bunker Sports day just in terms of what's all happening because you've got the NHL, the MBA, the W N B A.
You've got Major League Soccer.
You've got Premier Lacrosse League you've got.
You have the Canadian Canadian elite Basketball League.
You've got over 30 games or PGA mixed martial arts.
You've got over 30 sporting events happening on that day, and people are gonna be on their patios.
They're gonna be socially distance at bars are friends houses.
It is going to be a day in which you gotta get in front of a TV getting from a projector screen, a radio, a laptop.
What have you to try and consume all the content from 10 AM Mountain time until 11 PM mountain time.
It's gonna be a good day.
It's gonna be fun.
So a paint yourself today, make sure you get your rest.
Eat your three meals.
You know, Don't go too hard in the paint too early.
Tomorrow could be a long day on Saturday afternoon, Saturday evening and Saudi and no Saturday morning because we got our first NHL game.
Caroline in New York, popping off at 10 AM Mountain Time, Noon Eastern in its Rondo.
So, and people are going to be glued to that game, even though yes, that is a serious between two American franchises.
People are going to absolute let me the first NHL game since March 11th that matters.
So, yes, people are going to tune in to Game one off New York. Carolina.
It's gonna happen.
It is going to happen.
And then, of course, the NBA's returned.
And eight. I saw a great point.
People are saying online.
Please don't say bath balls back.
Basketball have been back, and that couldn't be more true.
We've had the CBL return.
We've had the W N.
We've had the basketball tournament all relaunch and come back again before the MBA supplies the NBA's back.
Cool. I've got you in that.
But don't say basketball back and try and put the NBA as the Onley for basketball out there on TV.
There was a lot more ball there were turned.
Then just the MBA rails.
Finds out you we saw the pelican than jazz play first game back and, of course, the man who was at the forefront of the shutdown.
Rudy Gobert, gets the first basket off the restart NV A in Orlando.
It ends and begins with Rudy fitting Tinning and goes through to go bare to the end and the restart as the job.
You have a win over New Orleans and the Lakers knocked off early Clippers in a thriller that came down to a mist that came down to eight.
LeBron put back put Lakers up ahead and a Paul George for three to end that game.
A. And the Flippers.
It'll be a fun Siri's, they think some fun game between the Clippers and the Lakers.
But I still they're fun games right now, but I am still not calling the Clippers a Lakers rival.
I'm not until you see this consistently over more than one or two Stevens.
Then we can talk about these two being rivals or even a playoff series between these two.
Because you know I'm not LeBron guy.
The Lakers are still the Kings of L. A.
They're still twitch prestige behind the Lakers brand and name in California for anybody.
Anybody say over the Clippers? Don't know.
Are the Clippers exciting? Yes.
On the competitive? Yes.
Are you gonna be a plaque team? We'll see half that.
Confirmed the money.
Yes, but don't give me that crap about the Clippers.
Are Ellie's team.
Have me talented me one.
How do you plumb appearances? Do the clippers half How many plethora of Windsor they have until they make though that kind of noise the Clippers, I dont anymore that good that a competitive team Los Angeles lovely are there.
They're competitive team in l.
A there and love potential there to threatened Lakers.
But right now no, No, sir, No.
Right now get some wind.
The near belt that really matter and then we'll talk about it.
That well discussed Laker, the Clippers being close to Laker than that affects.
But not right now, Larry.
Now and then, once again, I'm seeing no real talk of the Raptors being a threat.
The defending champions.
And I'm still hearing silence from major US media on the Raptors.
All right, Okay.
All right, keep overlooking defending champions again.
Not tell is gonna be itself is gonna be, But thereafter look good in there and most of their two games.
And they're gonna face Lakers in their first restart game on Saturday, which will be a barnburner of a game.
Because last time Ive team played in the US, the short handed Raptors fed the Lakers their food at Staples.
That was quite the game I watched, Phil.
We funded Fiallos to meet up again before the playoffs.
Yes, there will be.
And World baseball, we've got a situation on our hands.
We've got a good chunk of the National League East being shut down.
The Marlins have double digit covert cases.
The Phillies have covert cases and in Toronto, Blue Jays are now stuck in limbo in D.
Wondering who they'll play next or where they'll go to next.
You know the plants is from the planet, is supposed to send them to Atlanta and skipped their series against Philadelphia.
But, like really did of what happens when everybody should have gone to a bubble as much I am I am a p a guy in all sports.
The p a needed to say we're going into a bubble because flying around America is not safe.
Ah pH need to faint, Sfax that flying is not possible.
If you're probably right now and you can you we're gonna take you have on the national team of Well, you've got a team that plays in different country.
This is not a U.
Only league, like the NFL is.
How was your being Now? Now we've got a cat Melvin background.
We've got serious questions.
B can reach the 25 or 30 game mark, much less the playoffs.
You see, Johnny Bravo's here when we got reald discussions of games being skipped over and teams having to fish a year on 55 or 57 games and we we dupe love rankings Bye bye win percentage instead of drink winds losses because we'll be fair, do you? In fact, you may have some team to play 60 games and something that might play 55.
It's a it's it's a mess right now.
This season has gone from bad two worth to the worst possible case.
Right now, I feel Matt situation.
If you feel differently, please comment.
Please methods me if you feel differently on that.
And now, more baseball talk as we are.
All the scuffing now has been the fact that L.
A Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly, was suspended for eight games at being appealed for throwing at out Bregman and cause Korea in their win over the His Nationals and four to send this them back to the fact that use nationals We know, um used a illegal sign fumes scheme involving cameras and technology and all other matters off illegal electronic signs.
Feeling too still signed from different teams, all including the Yankees, including the Dodgers over the years now, pitchers have said before that they would throw at the Youth Nationals.
Picture said they're going to do this because players were mad that Houston faced no punishment beyond a J.
Hinch and the G M players wanted guys like oil to V and Bragman and so on and so forth to phase a level of punishment for their actions.
It will be didn't do that.
It will be clear these guys for testimony.
Now you said it bad president you have now.
It will be put in place a system where your players now want to exact justice on these guys because you didn't step up and show proper justice.
Good job Will throw The friend featured Joe four interviewed Joe many times else is doing it.
Guys heads, if dangerous.
But there, this could've all been avoided.
All of it could have been avoided and put to rest if Rob, Man, friend and everybody else had said, Listen, I'm spending Alex Bregman, Jose Altuve A cause Korea the entirely feed in and the entire postseason They're done till 2021 or two.
Spending them A.
I'm still selling them for any percent other this season and they can play in the postseason whatever or I'm using.
Also banned from the next to dress.
If you did that, I think you get it.
All players saying You know what? Justice have been served.
You won't see these guys until next year or the missing a good chunk of this year and use is bad for the next two drafts.
I think you would see play saying Justice.
Yes, that's right.
That is how you handle a team that used an extensive waited sheet.
Instead, every single player got off scot free, no punishment for their rules at all.
So you got players wanting to take out their own former justice.
And when you Yeah, you spend Joe Kelly for a games and you spend the Astros zero games, not player get suspended.
You're gonna have a lot of hard feelings from many.
Enroll a baseball.
You have a lot of hard feelings for that, you really will.
And it could have been settled months ago.
In the board room were the few harsh suspensions two of players but no in YouTube, granted for their testimony.
Wow, 2020 and baseballs have been a mess.
It's been a massive, so I can say it have been a gosh darn mess.
And now we have been saying, Beef ball.
I'm looking forward to 2021 or 2022 because guess what? We have Labour's drive coming up real soon.
Really? We have a real problem with Phoebe.
A coming up and bad blood between the L B natural that isn't background and Linz or firefighters Or, you know, I was interesting.
Now we're gonna have there.
We gotta firefights, going through war, ambulance or police, son, without what I was John to hear on camera.
Anyways, I go saying with labour tensions now, the baseball world not a good scene.
And I don't know if we're gonna have baseball in 2021 or 2022.
Who? Great job on all fronts. Great job.
Baseball couldn't be more.
Baseball could not be more broken than what it is right now.
It really couldn't be so.
What a time to be a fan of sports.
And now moving on to soccer and emos back.
What does sake that in a tournament TFT Vancouver and Montreal are out.
If you're in New York City FC, you're probably jumping up and down because you finally knocked off TFC and meaningful away.
I mean, that was a tough, tough law for TFC, the golf on the wrong foot from the jump, a lot of goal.
Let they allow to go less than 10 minutes of that game and Europe's he didn't look back in that game.
So the question now is for TFC.
You now have time to wonder about what went wrong in that tournament in that quarterfinal matchup in the Round 16.
But now where do you go over us receiving? You've got You've got Josie back and Got a O at Canola who played great night Tournament ale was incredible.
But now your question for TFC and your Vancouver, if you're much, you're all what does he look like now? Because the borders still closed and we're supposed to go back now to our home markets and play against each other for our next six games.
But after that, what do we do? I don't CFCs said.
They're gonna play in, maybe be good and play America.
But I have heard nothing from Montreal or Vancouver after what the plans will be when that six week period off playing against just Toronto, but you're all and by first ends because I don't say saying six weeks.
OK, that's if he period for the Canadian team they've done by September, whatever or October ish.
Is the border open by then? I don't think so.
I really don't ever less right now.
You got a plan for your three Canadian franchises? I gave me up.
Ula basically assumed the borders are opening until next year and say Okay, what is Plan B, C and D to have Vancouver, Toronto Mandrell finish the year? Because if they can play in Canada, we gotta figure out what happens next for them.
And that figure out quickly Could be a plan for them.
Maybe in May involve Vancouver sharing.
Seattle may be involved.
Toronto Um, ground sharing with New York.
You are either either maybe.
We re not considering any stadium.
Maybe Trump has to go and share Columbus.
How much your old Golden shares with New England to end the year until 2021.
That could be the play for all those teams.
Um, I have to be also if he goal Rams joined chatter room Go Rams earlier as band in the chat room.
You know, I'm sure you around figure, let the fact that now your NFL postseason expanding to allow two more teams in to get around the crack and getting back to the postseason now really funny if we do get to see that if we do get some form of receiving.
Interesting to see how for Beloved up in L.
A in that, too, and that two teams once you inform out with the charge of the Rams sharing so five stadium in Inglewood, Englewood have transformed himself from when I was there last back in 2014.
I gotta admit that stadium looks really cool in L.
It's really cool on Inglewood.
Guys say I'm excited for when that is opened properly outside the air of Kuvin because right now we NFL I didn't need the head medical guy for the Vikings who is in charge of Koven.
Got Corbett in the film slow your roll on starting his feeding on time because Corona virus I don't care about no football.
Pay attention, delayed this even for a bit.
Wake up, pay attention. A film.
