Very good and interesting interview with Pipe. Since I criticized you for what I felt were easy questions to Yallop that allowed him to go into his politicians spiel, let me say that this interview was completely different. You did not shy away from asking Pipe sensitive and topical questions. It was interesting to hear what he had to say and get an idea of his character given that he is so vilified on this board. If you interview him again I would be interested in how he would respond to the following:

-the lack of MNT friendlies in Canada

-why the MNT has not qualified for the WC during his tenure and how much influence/responsibility he feels he has on the sports side of things

Thanks to your interviews we are getting to hear the thoughts of some people we know quite well by name but not very well in person. Keep up the good work.

Good stuff again Bill. For those that are still doubting that Edmonton gets the rest of Canada's games in the U20 WYC, this podcast confirms it. It also mentions if Canada wins the group they stay in Edmonton for the next three matches (assuming they win them) before heading back to Toronto for the final.

So Edmonton could have 5 Canadian games...hmmm. I definately think Edmonton should have the winner of the group's round of sixteen and the semi-final (since the other would be in Toronto) but maybe the quarter-final along that route should be for one of the other cities.

Of course this is only if Canada win their group and continue on.

Brief but not without interest.

I know the interview was of course edited but I have to admit that Frankies surprised me a wee bit there. He seemed to me to have gone out of his way to indicate that while he feels he has to go with the 'keepers who've shown well for him so far, he is enthusiast about keeping an open mind and eager eye out for anyone else who might be doing well.

Could be reading something that's not there, but me-thinks the Ferandes plot thickens.

(That of course assumes that it was the in-season Ferandes, and not Lars who Frankie was hinting at).

I like these podcasts.

I liked these podcasts too. But there haven't been any new ones in a while. Is CanadaKicks Radio still on?

Ask and yee shall receive ;)

A brief conversation with Jason Bent on the podcast today. The radio show is looking for more sponsors before ontinuing on the TEAM - I'm hopeful we can have things in place for May. Failing that I will be expanding the midweek update to a full show (minimum 30 minutes) by the beginning of April.
