The Hockey Show - Episode Twelve

The Hockey Show returns to the airwaves tonight at 6:00PM on 101.5 UMFM. You'll be listening, right? RIGHT?!? In all seriousness, tonight's show should be pretty darn good as we welcome a Canadian kid who has become synonymous with boisterous hockey. You may have seen him a role that has defined his acting career thus far, but his stock is only rising.

Today, The Hockey Show is proud to welcome Jared Keeso, the man more affectionately known for playing Don Cherry in the two CBC-produced movies about the former player and coach. However, the Don Cherry chapter of Mr. Keeso's life is just one small part of what appears to be a fascinating life thus far. We'll talk with Mr. Keeso about his Don Cherry experience, his time in Manitoba filming the movies, his other acting gigs, some new projects he's working on, and, of course, some general hockey talk. It should be a "beauty", if I can borrow that line from Mr. Keeso and Mr. Cherry, so I encourage you to tune in and hear all about it!

After all, you don't want to anger the guy who won a Gemini Award for his portrayal of one of the most fiery guys in hockey, do you?
If you want to ask Jared a question, please get on Twitter and tweet a question to me at @TeebzHBIC. I'll randomly pick a few and work them into the conversation with Jared so that he can answer questions you may have. After all, we may not ask anything close to the questions you may have, and it's always fun to take a few off-the-wall questions. So tweet them over to me!

MO' BRO: I've basically built a team of moustachioed greats for the Mo' Bro All-Stars. So far, the bus carrying these greats has seats reserved for Mike Gartner, Wendel Clark, Dirk Graham, Grant Fuhr, Dennis Maruk, Larry Robinson, Mike Ramsey, Derek Sanderson, Lanny McDonald, Bryan Trottier, Dave Babych, Dave Schultz, Rod Langway, Jamie Macoun, Harold Snepsts, Dave Tippett, Michel Goulet, Paul MacLean, Mike McPhee, Mike Bullard, Bob Murdoch, Rejean Lemelin, Pat Burns, Joel Quenneville, Bill McCreary, Don VanMassenhoven, the NJ Devil, and Jim "Bearcat" Murray! But there are two men in the NHL right now who are leading the way in terms of moustache greatness, and they're going head-to-head in raising money for the Movember cause!

Mike Brown has sported some extremely impressive facial hair in recent months, but he shaved his forest of a beard to compete with Florida's George Parros in who could raise the most money by growing the best moustache. Team Canada, captained by Mike Brown, has $4723 thus far, and is looking for some more help as November comes to a close. Of all the Movember teams, Team Canada currently sits at #816 out of 23051 Movember teams in Canada. New Winnipeg Jet goaltender Al Montoya pledged $500 to Team Canada, so he's even getting in on the fun! If you can spare a few bucks, toss them at Team Canada, and let's help those out cancer research and men's mental health in Canada!

That beard that Mike Brown had made him look like he hadn't been in civilization for about six months! And now he's back to the 'stache and looking like the Mike Brown of old! If you want to get in on the action, head over to the Movember page and get registered so your 'stache can stand amongst these great 'staches!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
