chatting practice – Episode 3: The Dishonour Roll
Please doff your chapeau and launch it directly onto the ice, as Chatting Practice has split the defenders and gone top corner for the third straight episode – yes, it’s a (host Bryan) Hatt Trick! This tertiary instalment of the trifecta is sponsored by Coma Mattresses (3:14) and produced by Matt Burke (ostensibly from behind some glass). The fellows are joined by: comedian Don Kelly, who uses his proprietary SNIT™ formula to rank the sports teams ‘honouring’ Indigenous peoples from least to most offensive (4:49); comedian Graham Kay, who recalls a (literally) unbelievable save from his AAA goalie days in ‘That Time In Sports’ (28:33); and ex-pro football player and Renaissance man Mark Hatfield, who returns for Part Two of his sprawling/riveting tell-all (32:27). Programming concludes with a refutation leading to a celebration of the Toronto Marlies’ 2018 Calder Cup conquest (52:26). Incidental music by Jelly Roll Morton (‘Mr. Jelly Lord’) and Ty Segall (‘Every 1’s a Winner’). FIN.
