The Hockey Show - Episode 119

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is opening the doors for the extended hockey family tonight! With Beans off vacationing in warmer climates and Columbus at home in the Twin Cities, I was feeling a little lonesome in the booth, so I decided to do something dramatic! Straight Ahead with Aaron Sabasch, a fantastic little jazz show, is on holiday hiatus as well, so I sent the boss a memo, made an executive decision, and I'm taking his timeslot! With the extra time, I'm inviting back two of The Hockey Show's favorite guests, and we'll welcome a brand-new friend to the show as Extended Hockey Family Episode takes shape!

The show will open at 4:00pm CT, so mark your calendars! This two-and-a-half-hour extravaganza will open with our good friend Isabelle Germain joining me from 4:00pm until 4:45pm! I've been trying to get Isabelle on for a while as we want to talk about a pile of things. We'll discuss the CWHL All-Star Game and the emergence of the women's game as not only a great sport, but as an alternative hockey source for many families. We'll talk about the success of Shannon Szabados in Columbus, Georgia with the SPHL's Cottonmouths, and the recent game where referees Erin Blair and Katie Guay called the game. We'll talk about the CIS teams out east as well with the co-host of East Coast Sport Show on Bell Aliant Community One TV, Miss Isabelle Germain!

The guests dropping by don't stop there, though. From 4:45pm to 5:30pm, I am honoured to welcome back one of Canada's best actors, in this guy's opinion, in Mr. Jared Keeso! We're going to talk to Jared about his work on 19-2 and the upcoming second season starting in January! We'll discuss his favorite team in the Calgary Flames, and how they've proved all the pundits wrong thus far. We'll discuss the hockey scene in Montreal as that's where he was filming 19-2, we'll talk about him starring in a new Heritage Moment commercial, and we may even get some insight on upcoming projects that Jared is involved in! It's been a while since we've had Jared on, so this truly does feel like a family reunion!

Yet we're still not done as we have an hour left in the show! So who else could be dropping by? If you recognize the smiling face to the left, you already know that The Hockey Show is honoured, privileged, and proud to welcome former NHL star, former Manitoba Moose centerman, and author Sean Pronger to the program from 5:30pm to 6:30pm! Sean and I will discuss a lot of stuff in his book, we'll chat some fun hockey stuff, and we might even work in a few questions about his lesser-known brother, Chris. I'm really excited to be able to talk to Mr. Pronger because he was a great player when he suited up for the Moose, and his book is hilarious so I'm sure he'll bring a lot of fun and laughter to the show!

Tonight is going to a jam-packed show, so I'm going to let everyone know that the phones will be closed. You can hear all the interviews on 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region or you can listen live between 4:00pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! You can tweet me anytime you like by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter. 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. There are lots of ways for you to interact with The Hockey Show, so tune in tonight and hear from three amazing people as we bring together the extended hockey family for a night of fun and laughs!
