The Hockey Show - Episode Ninety-Three

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with our second show featuring a pile of guests! We were working to have Mr. Jared Keeso join us, but his schedule demands that he be working on the second season of 19-2 so Jared will be busy tonight and not appearing on the show. Honestly, I'm happy for the guy. He's working on a great show that is gaining traction in the Canadian TV atmosphere, and that's good for him and his family. Keep working hard, Jared! The Hockey Show is behind you 100%!

In saying that, we've gone ahead and booked locally as we're bringing in a senior men's team from here in Winnipeg! As part of our mandate as a community-based radio station, Beans and I are always looking interested in things happening in our city, so getting one of Winnipeg's best hockey teams and funnier Twitter teams is important to us! We'll bring in members of the Dirk Digglers hockey team in-studio tonight and run them through the paces as we do with all our guests as we chat some hockey! We'll learn about them, where they play, how long they've been playing, and get their thoughts on a pile of stuff happening in the hockey world! It's going to be another great show with multiple members of the Dirk Digglers hockey team on-hand tonight!

Tonight's 3 Rounds Deep segment should be interesting. Beans and I will include the Digglers team to participate in the discussion about the best and/or funniest team names of all-time in honour of the Dirk Digglers hockey club appearing on the show. These could be names from any professional team across the land or any hockey team playing at your local hockey rink. As long as there are no curse words in the name, we'll add it to the list! This should be a beauty topic, and it may just lead to a few teams out there finding a new team name!

If you wanna be a part of 3 Rounds Deep tonight, give us a call during the segment at 204-269-8636 (269-UMFM) and we'll put you on the air! Same rules as always as we can't repeat picks made by others and neither can you, so it will get a little tougher as people start participating. We'll start it off, then open up the phone lines and hit Twitter for everyone else to participate. If you want to toss some names in electronically, the Twitter link is below where you can go 3 Rounds Deep!

Going 3 ROUNDS DEEP tonight: best and/or funniest team names! You know what to do!

Along with 3 Rounds Deep, we'll get the Digglers to weigh in on their season out at the MTS IcePlex where things appear to be going quite well. We'll talk about the Los Angeles Kings bringing home the Stanley Cup, the Texas Stars winning three straight OT games on the road against the St. John's IceCaps to capture the AHL's Calder Cup, trade rumors and buyouts as to who may move where, coaching vacancies, and the art of cursing at civic events and whether it is a necessary thing for public officials and players to do. Lots of chatter tonight, so make sure you tune in!

We're going to have fun tonight on the show with the Dirk Digglers hockey team, so please tune us in at 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region or you can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! We'll be available via phone at (204) 269-8636 (269-UMFM), so give us a call and play 3 Rounds Deep or share your thoughts on any of the topics we cover! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us up at @TeebzHBIC on the Twitter machine. You can also post some stuff to Facebook if you use the "Like" feature, and I always have crazy stuff posted there that doesn't make it to the blog or show. In short, there are lots of ways to get a hold of us! Give us a listen, and enjoy the show!
