On episode 894 of the Tall Can Audio podcast we're stoked to be joined by our old friend Ian Mendes of The Athletic to share a pint and talk all things sports.
We'd love it if you'd take a second to support the show by leaving a rating and a review and make sure you're subscribed/following us on your podcast app.
So much to cover with Ian including how he found his way in to his new gig with The Athletic, what life has been like covering the team through the pandemic, the multitude of issues coming together to keep fans from attending Ottawa Senators games thus far, crowds being down in general across the Canadian NHL buildings and what it means for the league's recovery, the Montreal Canadiens early issues and whether it's a sign of things to come for that franchise, our favourite sports games on the original Nintendo as that console reaches another anniversary, Major League Baseball's decision to have it's clubs start paying for housing for it's Minor League players and the impact reporters may have played in that move, the CFL changing the rules on unvaccinated players just in time for the playoffs and tons more.
Ian is always one of our favourite guests and we were thrilled to have him in to cohost the show this week.
