Wherein Our Heroes share thoughts on the latest season of The Bachelor; BAE is not a fan. John Herdman takes charge of the Canadian men’s soccer program after over six successful years in charge of the #CanWNT. Adam’s father weighs in on the change, as do we, and we are certainly having it. What we are not having is Sid Seixeiro’s recent rant on Tim & Sid. The Canadian Premier League names their first Chairman and Commissioner, a veteran of true Canadian icon: Tim Horton’s. The future bodes well for Les Rouges. This episode couldn’t possibly get any more “True North strong and free”.
