Steve Ewen’s wife is a playoff junkie. We’re not spreading malicious rumours here on the Province Sports podcast. Ewen himself tells the story of how his bride becomes a crazed fanatic come playoff time – name the sport, she’s suddenly into it. On Fridays With Steve, Ewen and sports editor Jonathan McDonald also talk about the Canadian soccer debacle – do we put too much emphasis on excellence, on the elites? – and Ewen shares an alternate view of Christine Sinclair’s FIFA-induced suspension. Special bonus: for the first time in his life, Ewen almost says a bad word. Plus multiple shoutouts to longtime podcast listener B.B. Lee, and an invitation to any listener to join us here on the podcast. Coming Monday: the return of Paul Chapman!
