It's time for the boys annual look at the release of the OHL Schedule, what are some of the oddities of the 2017-18 regular schedule, who have the cheapest and most expensive season tickets? Who has the best perks?
Also Brian reflects over a week after his team captured the Memorial Cup.
Have a great summer everybody, we're back for season 4 in September!
It's the season finale of our third season, and we're going out in style.
Sam Cosentino rejoins us from his appearance on our live show last season to discuss calling his 12th Memorial Cup, how many suits he rolls into town with and what the future of broadcasting holds in store for people like him who started in community television.
Then the boys return to the tailgate one last time to talk to CTV Windsor reporter Bob Bellacicco and former CHL on Sportsnet reporter Patrick King about their predictions for the first all-OHL Final in 24 years.
And finally, we wrap up the 99th Memorial Cup as Steve discusses the game with honorary fanboys Adam Schelvig and Iain Colpitts, and Brian comes slightly down off his championship high to talk to his fellow 12 year season ticket holder Ben Dykens about which Memorial Cup win was best, and why that's such an awesome problem to have.
Then finally Steve and Brian wrap up the Memmer from the exclusive after party at Toast Manor.
It's been an amazing 10 days, an amazing season, and we thank you all so much for tuning into The OHL Fanboys Podcast.
Another bucket list guest is checkmarked as the Fanboys finally welcome OHL/CHL Director of Communications Paul Krotz to give us an inner working of what it takes to pull off a Memorial Cup and his experience being the media voice of the best junior hockey league in the world.
Then the Fanboys break down the semifinal with Seattle Thunderbirds color analyst Tim Pigulski and Mississauga Steelheads color analyst Tyson Geick and give a quick preview of the first all-OHL Memorial Cup Final in 24 years.
Stay tuned Sunday for the season finale, and thank you for tuning into OHL Fanboys
Even the pounding rain can't stop the boys from continuing their tailgate for a sixth straight day!
Join Steve as he welcomes both the President and GM of the Saint John Sea Dogs, Mr. Trevor Georgie, and the Erie Otters fill-in color analyst Steve Fitzsimmons for some talk about the tournament, tailgating, and ECW?
Then the postgame sees Brian struggle to keep his composure as AM800 CKLW's Manny Pavia and OHL Pucks and Stripes' Keith Dotson run down the Windsor Spitfires running the table in the round robin to book their berth in their fourth Memorial Cup Final.
What a time to be alive!
It's a JAM PACKED episode of The OHL Fanboys Memorial Cup Tailgate! How jam packed?
We've got the play by play voice of the Erie Otters, Aaron Cooney!
We've got the official photographer of the OHL, Aaron Bell!
We've got Aaron...err Jamie Tozer from Station Nation!
Then we've got Aaron Cooney again for postgame wrap!
After three years, it's finally happened. The boys sit down and talk with the OHL Commissioner and CHL President David E. Branch about a host of topics, including a CHL Network, playoff restructuring, and just who else bid against Windsor for the 2017 Memorial Cup!
Not to be left in the shadows, the boys wrap up the highest scoring game in Memorial Cup history with the Seattle crew of Thom Buening, Tim Pigulski and Andy Eide and wonder if the Thunderbirds can punch their ticket to Friday's semifinal.
Without a doubt our biggest show ever. We hope you enjoy.
The boys continue their tailgating extravaganza with old friend Ian Colpitts talking about the fan breakfast, Mike Turnbull tells us how much goes into pulling off an epic tailgate, and then the boys are joined by the voice of the Saint John Sea Dogs, Mr. Tim Roszell to discuss the Spitfires' dismantling of the Seattle Thunderbirds and how tricky it is to call a hockey game from the catacombs.
On a sidenote, a job well done by the Junior Hockey Junkies raising $10,600 to two deserving charities at the fan breakfast. Brian won a skate!
Hey, we're back with a more acceptable sounding episode!
The boys continue their tailgate tour by reuniting the broadcast crew of the Spitfires championship years, WE-TV's Domenic Papa and Bill Kelso. They discuss the Spitfires win and how they view the event after opening night.
Then Steve and Brian recap the Otters-Thunderbirds game as Brian rubs it in that Guelph is the last OHL team to lose at the Memorial Cup. Because it's true. Guelph. Heh.
Folks, we apologize, but the quality of this episode is awful. It's totally cool to skip this episode and wait until tomorrow. We're sorry, and from here on in it's only audio.
But for those who are gutting it out, we have for you the people from the Junior Hockey Junkies, Julie Kingsbury, Bubba and Kim "Santa" Thomas. We talk about the fan breakfast and the history of the best traveled fans in junior hockey.
Then Steve, Brian and new Fanboy Joey Battaino dissect the shocking 3-2 Spitfires win over the reigning QMJHL champion Sea Dogs.
On the final playoff episode of OHL Fanboys, the boys go to the Chocolate Centre in Mississauga to talk to the Mississauga Steelheads on ROGERStv crew, Kyle Liberto, Aly Munro and Tyson Geick about their possible final broadcast, being broadcasters in an uncertain media time, and what may come next.
Then the boys and senior OHL correspondent Neate Sager break down Game 4, the likely coronation of the Erie Otters as OHL champions after 15 years, and just what it's going to take to regularly put butts in the seats at Hershey.
All the best to our friends with the ROGERStv crew. Better days ahead
