We kick off with Tennis Talk () Recapping Carlos Alcaraz defeating Casper Rudd in the Miami 1000 Masters finals to become the youngest players to ever win the tournament, and cementing his place as a top contender on the tour now.

Talkin' Hockey we go through the Leafs most recent 2 wins, and the surprisingly clutch end game style of play that accompanied Auston Matthews breaking the 50 goal mark for the first time in his career. We also look at another example of Hockey Goonery gone too far in the Arizona/Anaheim game that caused Terry's bruised face to go semi viral.

In BBall Storylines () We reminisce on our favourite Kyle Lowry Raptor moments on the eve of his return to the city, as well as a look at playoff homecourt advantage possibilities for the Raps. The Grizzlies win against the Suns with only 1 of their starting players, and are the Lakers out of the playoffs for good?

Football Fancave () closes out the show as Owen discuss the most realistic best case scenario Team Canada can make happen in their group with Belgium, Croatia, and Morocco.
