Don and Bill return after a Christmas break – actually, they each ditched the podcast because they were on fill-in duty at NEWSTALK 1010, in Toronto – to give you “The Gist Of It.” This week, the boys bounce around the legend of Tim Tebow, Brian Burke’s lamenting of enforcers going the way of the Dodo, and the scourge of politicians crossing the floor. As well – The most dangerous breakfast food is….
Isn’t it time the NHL cracked down on unnecessary breakfast violence?
Segment 1 – Don decries the floor-crossing of a Quebec MP. He wants legislation to ensure it doesn’t happen again without a by-election.
Segment 2 – Bill’s intrigued by the life of a First Lady in the United States. Should she be a kitty or a tigress?
Segment 3 – Football! Tim Tebow continues to have his prayers answered. That will end, Don says, in New England, this weekend.
Segment 4 – Brian Burke’s sad, sad tale of the plight of the NHL enforcer. Boo. Hoo.
Segment 5 – More on Burke and the NHL’s “rats.” Don thinks it’s ludicrous to believe they’re taking over. Bill’s not so sure of that.
Segment 6 – Harper v Putin. Bill’s unmoved. Don says “lace ’em up!”
Segment 7 – How in the hell do you injure yourself eating pancakes? Ask L.A. King forward Dustin Penner.
