The good news in Eric MacKenzie survived Las Vegas and is back to join Patrick Johnston on another episode of Province Sports Radio: Wednesdays.
The bad news is it looks like the NHL won’t be at the Olympics. There are some intriguing reasons why – and they don’t have anything to do with the league’s owners getting a cut of the pie.
Plus, why do athletes cheat? The Russians were running a massive doping operation in Sochi; fringe athletes in baseball are getting caught. Why do it?
And some chatter about Jarryd Hayne’s latest move, from the NFL to an attempt to make the Fiji rugby sevens team for RIo. (There’s a journalism lesson in there too.)
This is Province Sports Radio.
