NHL All-Star Game, celebrity sightings, and the Oilers shoot for 17 straight wins
The boys are back from Toronto, All-Star Game weekend has wrapped, and everyone was back in Edmonton for the first in-studio episode of Real Life in quite some time. Kicking off the podcast, the guys started with a recap from Toronto and what the boys experienced in the days leading up to the NHL's annual all-star weekend. From the moment the boys arrived in Toronto until the time everyone got back to Edmonton, there was so much going on in the 6ix that it took almost half the podcast to get through all of the stories. From Bublé's confession at the player draft to the way the players navigated the skills competition and the game itself, there was plenty to talk about after what was a very busy few days on the road.Changing gears, the guys spoke about the 4 Nations tournament between Canada, the USA, Finland, and Sweden that the NHL will hold next year during a similar break that the players would get for the Olympics. While some of the guys appreciate the idea of best-on-best, others feel like a tournament with only four teams seems like a waste of time, even though the league will undoubtedly secure the bag. Either way, one thing everyone can agree on is that it will be fantastic to see Connor McDavid wearing a Canadian jersey for the first time since the World Juniors tournament. Changing gears, the podcast turned toward a random collection of topics, including a tribute to the amazing roles Carl Weathers played over the years, the endless talents of Flava Flav, Tyler going to the Nelly Furtado concert even though he thought he was seeing Nelly. They also spoke about the Grammys for a few minutes after Tracy Chapman and Luke Combs gave a beautiful rendition of Fast Car, which happened to be the first time the former has performed in years.
