The Hockey Show - Episode Ninety-Nine

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back with a big show tonight. Besides it being the show-before-the-100th-show, we are proud, honoured, and privileged to welcome to the studio a man whose saves and showmanship have made him a household name. While the team drew a lot of attention after signing Shannon Szabados, Columbus Cottonmouths goaltender Andrew Loewen made headlines all over the hockey world with his dancing skills! Tonight, on The Hockey Show, we welcome Mr. Andrew Loewen to the studio!

Andrew became famous thanks to a YouTube video of him dancing with the cheerleaders at a Columbus Cottonmouths game between periods. Tonight, though, you'll learn that Andrew is a pretty accomplished goaltender, an intelligent guy, and a solid individual. From his play in high school with the Vincent Massey Vikings here in Winnipeg to his time in the MJHL to his jump to the NCAA, we'll go over Andrew's career in detail with him. We'll also ask him about sharing the blue ice with gold medal-winning Olympian Shannon Szabados, his brief stint with the Manitoba Moose, and his call-ups to the ECHL. In short, he's done a lot, seen a lot, and we'll talk to him about as much as we can about everything!

If you haven't seen Andrew dance yet, here is the video. He's been doing this for about two years now, and he dances whenever he's serving as the backup for the evening. He's got the moves, I have to admit, and he puts the cheerleaders to shame with his enthusiasm!
Pretty awesome! I wonder if he has other dance moves? We'll find out tonight!

There won't be a 3 Rounds Deep segment tonight due to Mr. Loewen's appearance on the show, but we'll toss it back on the schedule for next week's 100th show! However, we're on the air at 5:30pm tonight with Andrew Loewen of the SPHL's Columbus Cottonmouths! Hit us up 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! The phones will be off tonight during the interview, but you can tweet questions for Mr. Loewen 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. You can also ask Mr. Loewen questions there too! We have lots to talk about with Columbus' Andrew Loewen, so join us tonight on UMFM and find out about the dancing goalie's career in hockey!
