The Hockey Show - Episode Seven

The Hockey Show found its way onto the airwaves tonight in what was described as "The Giveaway Show" thanks to the amount of stuff that Beans and I had amassed to give away. The problem? No one called and pledged any cash for any of the prizes!

Look, I get that pledging money to a little radio station isn't a priority for a lot of people right now. With the way the economy has treated people over the recent few months and years, it's probably a wiser investment to invest in one's self. I get that, and I'm totally fine with it. But I do want to say "thank you" to the people that did pledge under The Hockey Show's name, and to thank everyone who pledged in general to help raise over $25,000 thus far - well over the original goal of $20,000! 101.5 UMFM thanks you for the support, and I am impressed with the outpouring of generosity shown towards 101.5 UMFM radio. Well done, everyone. Truly spectacular!

If you listened to tonight's show, you know that we talked about the Winnipeg Jets' players plying their trade in Europe and how Alexei Ponikarovsky is the top-scoring Euro-Jet right now. We spoke about Alex Burmistrov finally getting his first goal in the AHL and how the IceCaps could use some steadier goaltending. We chatted about the great Movember cause that will be kicking off on November 1, and how both Beans and I will be participating. And we updated everyone on how the Bisons were faring in Canada West action.

Next week, we're extremely thrilled to be welcoming a special guest on the show. Tune in at 6PM CT to catch ESPN's and Uni Watch's Paul Lukas on The Hockey Show as we discuss the Uni Watch Power Rankings, Paul's view on some of the bigger stories in hockey, which team or teams he enjoys following, and much more! We're looking forward to it, and we'll hope you'll join us over at 101.5 UMFM next week for the fun!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
