What's the total runtime of the podcast?
What's with Pratt and the party all the time? It's always about how cool the party will be surrounding the game.
"Big Daddy Pratt" has long tried to protect this image of being a ladies man, life of the party, etc.
For somev reason that involved often wearing leather pants or at least bragging about it.
In reality it was probably less nights at the Roxy and more nights in sweats falling asleep in the lounger.
I think it was probably more night at Celebrities and the Dufferin Hotel
He's allegedly married or in serious relationship but that doesn't really disprove anything.
He used to be at the Roxy in the early 90's standing by himself in front of the dj booth in an 8 ball jacket (I think David Puddy had one) and cowboy boots trying to look cool. I guess he saw himself as a cool party guy so tries to relate everything with being cool at a party.
Sounds like a party for one.
I bet he still has that jacket hanging in his closet. That's not the type of thing you just give away to the salvation army or anything.
8 ball jacket - Google Search:
I lived at the Roxy in the 90s. I don’t ever recall seeing Pratt there. I do however remember seeing him at my buddy’s store on Davie St late nights however. We had a couple of our buddies working at the Super Valu and we used to go there for free food after the bars closed. Pratt used to come in just ****ing gowed. We used to get him going all the time. He talked like a big shot. “Trust me kids”, this lockout will be settled next week. This was in his TSN days and right before his Last Call abortion of a show. He would be weaving around the store in his leather jacket and pants giggling away to himself. He was probably late 30s early 40s at the time
Oh man, I might have to finally pony up and pay for Real Good Show. Those guys crack me up.
Sounds about right. Yeah I saw him at the Roxy a few times, always the same pose. Also at that placed called BaBalus.
Yeah he would always say "pony up the cash...", also stuff like "...Jack on the cell, go ahead brutha!...It was like he was showing how cool it would be to be talking to someone on the cell.
It's think its hilarious that sports radio guys like Dave Pratt and Bob McCown think they are the coolest people in the room.
I honestly don't get that vibe from McCown. Pratt, yes.
But those shades....
Hitting the Airwaves Today: Sportsnet 650 Unveils New Starting Lineup | Sportsnet Media Centre
Morning radio content will be listenable now.
It'll be interesting to see the results of the 650/1040 competition in the morning time-slot, as it looks like 650 will be going with a much more sports-focused approach (less of the entertainment stuff).
Well, McCown says he wears them because the bright studio lights give him headaches.
Bob McCown hits sports broadcast milestones and is still going strong
Man is there anyone in the local media with as see-thru a shtick as Andrew Walker?
He's worse then Pratt as far as picking a topic and purposely going with the side that will spin up the local market.
The way Vancouver fans complain about the early start and how we always accommodate the leafs when they come to town. This year the game is at 6pm. Walker is gloating on twitter about how great the 4pm start is.
We see right through you.
Pratt's a man's man, brutha!
Pratt's the biggest *****e bag in Vancouver radio. He's a complete idiot. He likes to have "hot takes" on everything and is basically wrong almost all the time.
Can't stand the guy. I am glad they leave him on the bro show - that way I can avoid both of them at the same time.
Without Sat to reel him in, Pratt has become unlistenable. He’s like Fuller not going easy on the Pepsi
if Tkachuk is there at 7 and the Canucks pass, it's gonna be good. The guy acts like he knows something about prospects.
Very good point!!!
