The Hockey Show - Episode Seventy-Nine

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with a bunch of fun! Just as an aside, it feels pretty good to say "Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show". It's a badge we will wear proudly, and we want to make sure that we are one of your choices, if not the only choice, for irreverent hockey chatter as Beans and I, along with Columbus, make your Thursday nights better when we're live or when we're speaking directly to your brain through your headphones via podcast!

We're going to be in a bit of a party mode tomorrow as we're welcoming Miss Amanda Schubert, goaltender for the University of Manitoba Bisons, to the studio. However, Miss Schubert recently celebrated her 20th birthday, so The Hockey Show is bringing cake for her and any of her teammates who decided to invade our humble studio! We've had a few members of the Bisons men's team on the program, but Amanda's arrival tomorrow will be the first for a member of the women's team! We've been trying to get a member of the women's team on for what seems like forever since they practice during the season while we're on the air. I feel no shame in bribing Miss Schubert and her teammates with cake in order to welcome her and them to the UMFM studios!

We'll talk to Amanda about the Bisons' season, the CIS Championship and how Saskatchewan will fare against some of the best women's team this country has to offer, Shannon Szabados' new challenge in the SPHL with the Columbus Cottonmouths and whether Amanda aspires to play against the men, and much more. We'll also run through a quick update on the KHL and the Gagarin Cup Playoffs towards the end of the show. And, of course, we'll find out what Amanda did or has planned for her birthday!

It should be a fun evening as we celebrate a milestone birthday with one of the brightest stars on the University of Manitoba's women's hockey team in goaltender Amanda Schubert, so turn your radio on, tune us in, and turn it up! Find us at 5:30pm CT on the FM-dial at 101.5 MHz, hit us up on the web at the UMFM website, or listen to the podcast that will be posted right here after the show!

And we're totally interactive too! You can call us at (204) 269-8636 aka (204) 269-UMFM, or you can fire off a round of tweets at @TeebzHBIC. Join us tonight for a little fun, and party like you're Dr. Zoidberg. Or something. It'll be fun, though.

PODCAST: MARCH 13, 2014: Episode 79

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
