The Hockey Show - Episode 101

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns tonight with another guest! We're still booking guests through to the start of the season and beyond, so don't think we're resting on our laurels as we await the start of the season. The Hockey Show is pushing forward with interesting people from all walks of hockey life, and today's guest brings a unique perspective on the world of hockey!

We're proud and honoured to speak with Mr. Myles Doak! Myles is the creator of SummerSkates, durable and comfortable sandals made from hockey skate laces! Myles has been working on getting these flip-flops into stores for the past two years, and he's now realizing his dream! We'll talk to him about how he came up with the idea for SummerSkates, some of the challenges he's faced along the way, where he sees SummerSkates going, and how far away he is from conquering the world! We'll also talk a little hockey with Myles as we get to know him, but we'll feature the SummerSkates on tonight's episode of The Hockey Show!

We'll also get Myles' takes on the hockey scene in Toronto where he lives, his thoughts on James Reimer's situation in Toronto, if the Leafs have enough talent to make a run at the Stanley Cup this upcoming season, and we'll play a little 3 Rounds Deep with an interesting topic tonight.

Tonight on 3 Rounds Deep, Myles, Beans, and myself will toss out names on who we think should be named as the next statues to be placed outside the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. With one being announced today, we'll take a shot at which other Maple Leafs should be honoured in bronze. The Leafs have a long history, so making three selections each shouldn't be too difficult tonight!

Same rules apply as always for tonight's 3 Rounds Deep as we can't repeat picks made by the others, so we'll see how this plays out. Phone lines will be closed as we have Myles on the phone, but we'll hit Twitter and Facebook for everyone else to participate. If you want to toss some names in electronically, the Twitter and Facebook links are below where you can go 3 Rounds Deep!

Going 3 ROUNDS DEEP tonight: what Maple Leaf greats should be immortalized in statue form? You know what to do!

The phone lines will be closed tonight as we're on the air at 5:30pm tonight with Myles Doak, the creator of the SummerSkates! 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! You can tweet questions for Mr. Doak or send in your 3 Rounds Deep choices 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 submit questions for us to ask Mr. Doak there too! We have lots to talk about with Myles Doak of SummerSkates, so join us tonight on UMFM and find out about how he got into the sandal business!
