The Prospects Baseball Show features Jack Cookson

Published

Hosted by Dean Millard:

On this episode of the Prospects Baseball Show, Jack Cookson is a baseball guy 365 days a year and has a wicked memorabilia store called Pro Am Sports in Edmonton. He’s a great guy, for a Giants fan and we discussed this year’s playoffs, his time as a clubhouse guy for the Trappers and baseball in Edmonton right now. Jordan Blundell, Jack and I also went through their top 5 uniforms of all time in MLB. Jordan also gave me a lesson on curveballs. This winter I will try and learn how to throw a curveball.

 

After 22 years in the media world of television and radio, from Brandon, Manitoba to Red Deer, Alberta over to Regina, Saskatchewan and settling in Edmonton, Alberta, I found myself on the side of the desk with a pink slip in my hand, unexpectedly. ​ Over the next few weeks and with my mind racing to a million thoughts, I decided to embark on the journey of podcasting. My broadcasting background has mainly been in sports, and it will still be a big part of my podcasting, but I will be focusing on other subjects as well, from sports to cannabis education and more.

Red Deer’s Jeremiah Lauzon to compete for spot on Canada’s Olympic 4 X 100 Meter Team!

Jeremiah Lauzon with Gold Medal at National Championships

How things have changed for Red Deer’s Jeremiah Lauzon!  A year ago he was an up and coming track star heading into his final year of high school at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School.  Then he had a very special season.  In the spring of 2019 Lauzon exploded onto the national track scene with Canada’s best U20 time in the 200m.  Then the Red Deer Titans Track and Field club member improved that time, clocking 20.90 which put him on the national and international track and field radar.

Lauzon went on to win Provincial and National 200 m Championships.  Currently he’s enrolled at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, where he begins competing in the American NCAA division 2 season next month.

All this was capped in the most remarkable manner.  Athletics Canada has invited Jeremiah Lauzon to compete for one of 5 spots on the Canadian Mens 4 X 100 Meter Olympic Team!  It’s an incredible honour but he’ll have his work cut out for him.  There are only 10 invitees, and at least 2 of the positions are firmly locked with Aaron Brown and Andre De Grass expected to anchor Canada’s medal hopes at next Summer’s Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Todayville is happy to share this interview with Jeremiah Lauzon and his Red Deer Titans Coach Ronald Hewer.

Listen: Rod Pedersen joins Dean Millard on the Sports And More Podcast.

Published

on

This week was the perfect time to bring Rod Pedersen into the Sports And More Podcast. Not only was he the voice of the Saskatchewan Roughriders for 20 years, he’s really plugged in when it comes to the CFL. Rod compared this year’s Riders club to some of the past teams after clinching first in the west for just the 4th time since 1970.

Listen to Rod Pedersen preview the CFL playoffs and discuss his journey to sobriety.

We also discussed the changing landscape in the media world, as both Rod and myself would not be considered ‘main stream media’ with his new show, which includes video and me podcasting and doing online radio, it’s opening up some new avenues, if you can put in the work.

Rod has a tie in with the Dallas Stars and was in Texas when we chatted so I asked him why he thinks the Stars are struggling and he pulled no punches when it comes to a certain star player on the Stars roster. His favourite team is the Oilers and it’s a good time to be a fan.

It’s also a good time to be Rod Pedersen as he’s sober. He’s also helping others with their journey to sobriety and he does it with bluntness. The one thing about Rod Pedersen is he doesn’t get splinters sitting on the fence. He’s open about his life changing moment and recovery and how he continues to push forward, one day at a time.

It’s an open and honest conversation with one of Canada’s most recognizable media personalities.
