Listen: TSN’s Ryan Rishaug joins Dean Millard – #HumboldtStrong and the impact on his life

Published

TSN’s Ryan Rishaug has one of the best jobs in sports. He covers on a daily basis the best player in the world with Connor McDavid of the Oilers and he’s routinely front and centre at all the big events.

Some of those events however aren’t fun to cover. Like the story that began on April 6th, 2018 when 16 people died and 13 more suffered some with very serious injuries. Ryan tells the story of what it was like to cover such a life changing event and the impact it had on his life. He also had an interesting transition from a junior hockey career to a broadcaster covering the junior team he had just played on.

Recently Darren Dreger appeared on Sports and More and told a few stories about Rishaug, so Ryan dutifully defended himself and discussed the one big prank that backfired on him and if Bob McKenzie is off limits. Finally we discuss the Oilers (before the Neal Quad on Tuesday) and whether or not he’s willing to accept a few mistakes from Mike Smith due to his aggressive play (hint, he’s not!!!) It was a really fun chat with one of the most recognizable and talented reporters in Canada. Enjoy my talk with Ryan Rishaug of TSN.

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.

This week Jordan Blundell and Dean Millard dove into how the Astros have blown up. Suspensions, firings and more to come. Their 2017 and 2019 titles will now have an asterisk beside them for all time. The scheme included garbage cans and recording equipment.

The Houston Astros sign stealing scandal is one of the biggest MLB has ever had.

We also chatted with new Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Manager Brent Lavallee about his new job with the Toronto Blue Jays, his old job at LSUS (including one very memorable night) and youth baseball in North Delta, BC.

Jordan gave us the lowdown on his winter signings and if you entered our Ultimate Sports Passes contest, you’ll want to tune in.
