The Hockey Show - Episode 162

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is deep into PLEDGE-O-RAMA! The radio station is trying to raise $32,000 this year as part of our annual budget, and we're looking for your help! We're offering up a ton of awesome shwag for you to take home both from UMFM and The Hockey Show, so please help us by calling in this week and donating to the station!

All of this gear above? Available to you if you donate. We'll start on the left where there's a glass bottle of High Stick Vodka! I had written earlier in the week about how it won two awards at a prestigious tasting competition, so you know it's going to be pretty good. The one thing I hadn't noted was the limited-edition bottle number on the bottle we have: #99! The Hockey Show would like to thank High Stick Vodka for their generous donation, and I encourage you to read all about their fantastic product here!

Next to the great bottle of High Stick Vodka at the top are two incredible books from ECW Press! He Shoots, He Saves was written by Winnipeg author Jon Waldman, and it's an excellent look at some of the collectibles in the world of hockey from hockey cards right through to some of the more obscure things that people value from the world of hockey. You can read the review of He Shoots, He Saves right here.

The second book provided by the fabulous ECW Press is another book I've had the pleasure of reading and reviewing in Don't Call Me Goon written by Toronto's Greg Oliver and Winnipeg's Richard Kamchen. It's a look at a number of tough guys through the years of the NHL's history and they have a ton of interviews with the guys who were responsible for the intimidating play on the ice. You can read the review of Don't Call Me Goon right here. I'd like to thank ECW Press for their generous donation in helping us out!

Below the two books from ECW Press is a Winnipeg Jets ball cap and a long-sleeved t-shirt (size large) donated by Beans for the show tonight. If you want these two items, they'll be up for grabs as well!

In the top-right corner of the image are a couple of Team Canada pucks signed by the assistant coach of Team Canada's sledge hockey team, Mr. Brandon Reid! Along with those pucks are a couple of copies of The Hockey News signed by Brandon Reid and Jessica Scott-Reid, his wife, as that edition of The Hockey News features an article written by Jessica! And to sweeten the pot a little more, we're offering up a couple of limited-edition UMFM Faculty of Sound stickers as well!

In the bottom-right corner, you may notice a Moose logo. We'll be offering up a pair of tickets to the January 3 Manitoba Moose game against the Grand Rapids Griffins which just happens to be a bobblehead giveaway night! Well, afternoon. The game starts at 2pm, but this is the incentive that just keeps giving!

There may be a few more things that we have as well - a pair of SummerSkates, for example - that will be raffled off tonight, so give us a shout at the pledge line at (204) 474-6610 and we'll set you up with a ton of cool shwag. You gotta give to get, though, so call, pledge, and we'll get you something awesome! And all of these incentives are on top of all the great incentives that UMFM is giving away with your pledge as well!

Of course, we'll chat a little hockey as well. Beans and I will weigh on John Tortorella, Pascal Dupuis, the Montreal Canadiens, Jets news, Moose news, Brandon Wheat Kings news, Evander Kane, and the current NHL division leaders. You know you want some cool gear, though, so get your pledges in and we'll set you up with something awesome!

If you want to win something awesome, give us a call on the Pledge Line at (204) 474-6610, and tune your radio dial in the Winnipeg region to 101.5 FM. You can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage as well! Tweet me anytime with questions you may 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. It's all Pledge-O-Rama on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!
