Ari Shapiro on AMI Radio (05-28-20)

My latest guest appearance (05-28) on AMI Radio (@AMIaudio) with hosts Ramya Amuthan (@allramz) and Brock Richardson (@neutralzonebr) talking about the newly proposed NHL and NBA playoff formats.

We covered my thoughts on both leagues, what the future holds in store for Adam Silver and Gary Bettman respectively, why the profit-mongering nature of certain leagues may prevent them from returning anytime soon (hint: MLB), and why neutral cities may prove to be the tonic every fan needs once this pandemic is officially declared over.

Also, writer and blogger Luke Armstrong (@armstrongthings) and sports broadcaster Sam Mendelsohn (@Mendy_Island) drop by to discuss the current scandal-plagued nature of a fresh new MLB season and why the Maple Leafs might be lacking the defensive pixie dust to help them deal with quality eastern conference foes.

A conversation with Alex Seixeiro

My latest conversation with celebrated Sportsnet anchor and radio/television host Alex Seixeiro, whose industry success, commitment to his craft and informed opinions make him a powerful conversationalist and a worthwhile authority on the subject of Toronto sports.

We discussed his thoughts on the Blue Jays and their torrid off-season, the Raptors and their sublime excellence night in and night out, and the Maple Leafs and their quest to end over half a century of futility, along with his candid position on the changing of the guard (Don Cherry, Bob McCown) when it comes to broadcasting personalities and sports journalism in Canada.

Be sure to check out Alex and his fine work on social media (@alexfan590) and across all Sportsnet affiliates.
