Nick's the man with a plan this week, probably inspired by the generous donations of our new hockey gods. The Patreon page is officially up, thanks to the suggestion of a megafan (yes we have those, shut up) and we're blown away by the fan contributions! Meanwhile, it's the last week to nominate teams for the Westy and enter to win $8,000 in gear and jerseys. Plus, Dani is pissed about players bailing on her team....and April is pissed Dani cost her a championship.

You guessed it: somebody loses their cookies on this episode. The show must go on, so the remaining BLT members delve into team issues such as who gets to make the game lineup, and should there be secret meetings where people plot who they want to play with? They tackle how to let players know they’ve been cut, and get pretty creative. Plus, in-studio guest Peter from Victory Hockey UK (@weareVHUK) grabs a mic to tell us how he tricked his wife into visiting BLT on their honeymoon.
Writing a summary is hard when you were too drunk to remember what you talked about. We think there was something about putting a hit out on Brett to stop his championship streak. Find out what teams the BLT crew end up on and who got crushed in the chug-offs. Plus, special guest Jason Roche fills us in on a little wager riding on Canada VS Sweden, the first game of the Comox tourney. We even had an audience listening to us live!
When a girl has to choose between her fiery hair and new Tacks, things can get a little desperate. April has her eye on some beauty CCM’s this week and we don’t wanna say she’s considering drastic measures but …. Meanwhile, Dani’s ranting about her summer team having to forfeit the final championship game. Nick tries to get serious talking about those magic moments when things were “meant to be” and no one’s surprised when things go off the rails.
Episode 70: Everyone is preggers
Ok, not everyone. But if one more person on April’s team gets knocked up she’s gonna lose it. Nick, Dani and Apes talk GM gripes as the Winter season is just around the corner. Entries for the Westy are pouring in, but Nick has some choice words for the one-word applications! Dani wants to make a papier maché trophy for the winners and then – to no one’s surprise – the conversation goes sideways with a proposed BLT naked calendar competition.

Nick, Dani and April sneak into the closed-down Barn to record. What's that humming? Is it the abandoned beer fridge or could it be ghost Pokemon! The crew is easily distracted without Brett to keep them in line, but they do talk about Montreal Draft, the upcoming Vancouver Draft, and April's goal to become princess of North Korea via seduction.
Montreal was a time and a half. We are so beat from our time there that we couldn't record an episode this week. You'll hear all about Montreal in next week's episode but until then enjoy Brett and Dani being drunk at the Calgary Draft!
Summer hockey and more stripper talk The crew tackles such hard-hitting topics as ‘why we love wearing shorts to the rink’ and ‘why is everyone getting drunk instead of coming to hockey?’ Dani pulls out the Fireball to share a story from the Calgary Draft, despite April’s protests that what happens in the locker room should stay there. Nick gets even more excited for our upcoming trip to Montreal after he hears a fan’s cringe-inducing story from a visit to the French Canadian city. Spoiler alter: there's strippers.
With the Montreal Draft on the horizon, strip joints have been top of mind for our beer league faithful. April won’t be making the trip, so for the Calgary Draft this weekend she’s opening her own speakeasy right here in the BLT recording storage room (which we share with some preschools). Warrior VIPs Nick and Dani finally review their Covert QRL sticks after a few weeks of putting them to the test. And we probably talked about poop again somewhere in there.
Happy Birthday Beer League Talk! The whole gang’s here to celebrate the fact that you beauties still seem to want to listen to us talk about hockey (or poop) after an entire YEAR! Summer’s been taken over by draft tournaments as Nick and Dani tell their best locker room stories from Seattle and Pittsburgh. Brett and April say some stuff too.
This episode doesn't need a summary...mainly because we don't remember it!
Half the episode, twice the fun? The crew is pumped for the blitz of summer Draft Tournaments coming down the pipe, even though half of us are sick and the other half injured. As we head to Seattle this weekend, Dani scores an exclusive interview with her Dad. Plus, the surprise ending that nobody asked for!
With Brett and April nowhere to be found, we invite resident hockey pranker Anthony to share tales of his Canmore hijinks. Spoiler alert: There's poop. When he ducks out to feed his 4-month-old kid, Nick and Dani nearly kill each other in the new storage closet recording booth.
Good Week everybody! So umm yeah... Episode 60 went off the rails early! We talk about the Canmore Draft Tournament, a tournament that has been recently added, and Brett being a boner donor. TJ chase from Laga Sports also joins us to chat hockey jerseys and gives hockey photography tips. Thanks for listening! Hit us up on twitter: @beerleaguetalk
Since we aren't giving it a title we aren't giving it a description either. Enjoy the episode! Why not tweet us about it? @Beerleaguetalk
This episode is so bad we don't even want to write a description of it! We blame 99% of it on Dani... but hey Brett's back so that's good!
Episode 57 is crazy! Brett is banned from the show by Dan Boyle. A team we know gets poop bombed and April gets tossed from her first ever hockey game. A crazy week in the podcast! You don't want to miss it! Follow us on Instagram and twitter @beerleaguetalk
In episode 56, the crew talks about playoff douche bags, an upcoming referee/staff friendly - not so friendly scrimmage, and why Dani & April are growing out their leg beards. We also get a new Beer Review from Brett and another hysterical ref rant. Don't miss out! Hit us up on twitter to let us know what you think! @Beerleaguetalk
Welcome to episode 55! Come join the fun as the crew discusses everything from referee rants to not being a db on the ice!
This episode is all about Nashville... and Brett being back. The boys talk about their trip and the new hockey friends they made. We also announce the Beer League Jersey Challenge winner! Follow us on Youtube so you can be a part of #FGF - First Goal Friday
The BLT crew gets together with 2 members of the Clarkson Cup Champion winning Calgary Inferno. Delayne Brian and Jacquie Pierri join Nick, Dani, and April to talk about CWHL, Womens Hockey, Poop stories, and a couple beers. Beer league Talk wants to thank Inferno and these 2 awesome hockey players for taking time out of their day to hang out with us.
Go check out some women's hockey. These girls are just as tough as the dudes and probably drink more beer than them!
The Beer League Talk crew is back for Episode 52. This week we talk about Brett not being at the show again, reffing your friends & having to kick them out, and also d-bags on Twitter.
We have a question of the week: What's your favorite post game beer? Tweet us @beerleaguetalk
The BLT crew (meaning the crew that likes Bacon Sandwiches) didn't want you beautys to go another week without hearing Beer League Talk. Since Nick is headed to Oklahoma we slaved over another podcast episode on a Saturday!
Check out our weekend update in a show that is actually 80% hockey talk. We read emails from listeners that love Beer League Talk & Dani and we read emails from listeners that just hate Dani!
