Rob Tychkowski is one of the funniest (too funny for some bday parties) and best sports writers around. He's covered the Oilers since '89 and he also isn't afraid to tell you how he feels. Perfect podcast guest. Some funny stories and observations as well as a lot of NHL and Oilers talk. Plus Tiger Vs Phil. The Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports Top 3 is about your favourite athletes of all time and the UFFS Poll Question is about ticket prices when live sports return. We'll have One Timers with Tych later in the week and some SAM Soundbites along the way.

One Timers is a chance to get to know the guest of Sports and More the Podcast. Rob Tychkowski is a hilarious and brilliant sports writer and I set him up in the high slot for some One Timers. From his childhood teams to a surprising answer about who he would have dinner with. Plus his ultimate golf foursome would be awesome. Listen on Apple Music Spotify or here

If we can't watch live baseball we can read about the past right? This week author Jason Turbow joined me to discuss 3 of his baseball books as well as what might or might not happen this MLB season. I'm Dodgers fan and just finished listening to the audiobook of They Bled Blue, so it dominated the conversation, but we also discussed Dynastic, Bombastic, Fantastic, his book about the Oakland A's and The Baseball Codes about the unwritten rules in baseball. The conversation is filled with so many interesting stories. Our Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports Top 3 is about your most despised teams as a kid. The UFFS poll question is about the length of this MLB season. As a baseball bonus, there are two $40 GCs up for grabs courtesy of Ross Flats, where you can get some cool old school Edmonton sports gear.

With the NHL on hold I spoke with NHL Agent Gerry Johannson, President and CEO of The Sports Corporation. Gerry's clients range from Carey Price to Ryan Getzlaf to Brayden Point just to name a few and we discussed the future of the NHL season. What is being an agent like at the NHL draft of on trade deadline day? We discussed quite a bit. From becoming a players agent to negotiating contracts and the awkward call asking a GM for a trade. The Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports Top 3 Topic is the best or worst NHL contracts and the UFFS poll question is about choosing a defence partner for a rookie NHL dman.
