TCA Ep1033: AJ Jakubec Is On The Road To Qatar For The FIFA World Cup

Today Matt is joined by long-time friend of the show AJ Jakubec of TSN 1200 in Ottawa just before he jets off to Qatar for the FIFA World Cup.

Make sure to take a second to leave us a rating and a review inside your podcast app. It only takes a moment but makes a giant difference for us.

Just days before he leaves to watch one of the biggest sporting events in the world, we were pumped to catch up our buddy AJ. We kick things off with a little CFL talk including what went wrong for the Ottawa REDBLACKS and who might step in as their new full time head coach. Plus, we are down to the final 4 on the road to the Grey Cup and we get his thoughts on what to expect from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and BC Lions in the West final after Toronto and Montreal face off in the East.

Later on talk turns to AJ’s trip to the World Cup. Did Qatar’s human rights record or treatment of migrant workers impact his decision to go? How does one even prepare to travel to an event like this? How on Earth is he going to be able to balance the 29 games he has tickets to? And of course what can we expect out of this edition of Team Canada as they make their first appearance in the tournament since 1986?
