Video Transcript

JULIAN MCKENZIE: I mean no disrespect by this-- there's this photo going around of the women and girlfriends of-- of both teams in the Battle of Alberta, wearing these team jackets. I don't care for them. [LAUGHS] I don't think they look that nice.

I hope I'm not a hater. I just wanted that to be known. I just don't think they look that nice.

SAM CHANG: I didn't-- I actually didn't think the Oilers jackets could get worse after the first round, because they were like orange--

JULIAN MCKENZIE: They have more of these?

JUSTIN CUTHBERT: Different ones per round?

SAM CHANG: They had different ones in the first round. They were-- they were Oilers orange, and like kind of like a waffley kind of fabric. That's what it looks like. And I actually think the second round one somehow managed to be worse.


JUSTIN CUTHBERT: I don't get the appeal of letting everyone know that you're so-and-so's wife or girlfriend. But I don't know. I could be on an Island on that one.

JULIAN MCKENZIE: Yo, the comments are crazy. [LAUGHS]

SAM CHANG: You and Tessa Virtue, who was the Leafs player who refused to wear a-- wear one.

JULIAN MCKENZIE: That's true! That's true. [LAUGHING]

JUSTIN CUTHBERT: Oh, I-- that is the most unsurprising thing ever. That is hilarious.

SAM CHANG: He should be wearing her-- he should be wearing her jacket.

JULIAN MCKENZIE: That's very true. Morgan Reilly is Mr. Tessa Virtue.

OMAR: Yup, bless up to Tessa Virtue, man.

JULIAN MCKENZIE: You've robbed us of the Scott Moir, Tessa Virtue shipping we've been putting out for years. But you know what? Good on you, Morgan, I guess, Mr. Tessa Virtue.

JUSTIN CUTHBERT: I feel like Tessa just steers clear of Scotiabank Arena entirely. Has she been like-- maybe she was there. But I feel like that wouldn't be her thing.

SAM CHANG: She posted a photo of her-- she posted a photo of her with the-- with like a bunch of the other wives and girlfriends. But she was not in a jacket.

JULIAN MCKENZIE: Yeah, OK, all right. I just wanted that said. I just kind of feel like a random comment, but like I did kind of miss it. Please don't cancel this show.

JUSTIN CUTHBERT: The Flames ones are aggressive. Aggressive.

JULIAN MCKENZIE: They're very like-- like those cowboy things? Yeah, the tassels.


JULIAN MCKENZIE: Like, no, no, no, no, no. I'm not wearing that.

SAM CHANG: You know what's nice? Was last year, last year, the Avalanche wives and girlfriends I think did-- they did blazers with the retro jersey design so that it had the fleur de lis on it. Those were nice.


OMAR: Those were cool.

JULIAN MCKENZIE: I-- I-- I'll just have to--

SAM CHANG: They do different ones every year. It's wild.

JULIAN MCKENZIE: I'll take your word for it. I-- it's not to say-- yeah, look, whatever.

JUSTIN CUTHBERT: Hey, the Oilers wives and girlfriends, better get a third one ready.
