August 6 2021 - Rhian Wilkinson (Canada Soccer U20 Head Coach), Giulio Caravatta (BC Lions Colour Analyst), Ryan Gauld (Vancouver Whitecaps FC Midfielder), Sasha Andrews (Former Canada National Soccer Team)


Last show of the week and it comes on a day where Canadian sports history was made. 

The Pat Down looks at the incredible accomplishment of the Canadian women’s soccer team, and gives a tip of the cap to Deanne Rose whose goal extended the penalty shootout which Canada eventually prevailed to win. 

Former Canadian national team player and current assistant coach with England’s national team Rhian Wilkinson joins next and tells us how all the grassroots programs across Canada can take a piece of the gold medal win for the Canada’s women’s soccer team, why she’s so proud of Christine Sinclair, how Canada can grow the women’s game, and why the Canadian women’s team has one of the best cultures in all of the world.

BC Lions radio colour analyst Giulio Caravatta follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter, and tells us about all the new additions the Leos have on the roster this year, why he thinks that Canadian quarterback Nathan Rourke will be successful in the CFL, and what is on the menu in the Riders press box. 

The Price is Right reflects on Canada’s basketball programs falling behind other sports when it comes to representing on the worlds biggest stages. 

The newest addition to the Whitecaps Ryan Gauld joins next and explains how impressed he’s been with the ‘Caps training facilities, where his fitness is at right now, how he’s handling the expectations, what he knows about the MLS, and how he’s going to adapt to playing in North America.

Another former Canadian national women’s soccer team player follows, as Sasha Andrews tells us how she and her former teammates all feel like they have a piece of that gold medal win, and why she feels that Christine Sinclair is the greatest of all-time.

The boys play Hot Take for one last time this week.

The show wraps with all the Errors & Omissions.
