The Hockey Show - Episode 174

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, hits the airwaves tonight at 5:30pm CT with a number of things to discuss. Before we get to the hockey topics, though, I have a very serious question. I was speaking with a gentleman at work as we waiting in the cafeteria for our respective breakfast foods, and he began to assemble his bowl of cereal as anyone else would - bowl, cereal in bowl, milk on cereal. Nothing out of the ordinary there, but he then proceeded to open a cup of yogurt and put it on top of the cereal-and-milk combo. I expressed this observation on Twitter, and it appears that there are more than a few people who do this. So my question to all of you is how many of you put yogurt on top of your cereal?!?

Having seen the band live many moons ago, you might be asking why Smash Mouth is appearing on HBIC long after they had faded from any sort of spotlight (which apparently isn't true). The reason is simple: it's a "Hey now! You're an all-star! Get your game on! Go play!" weekend for three leagues and Beans and I will discuss the events of each of the three leagues who are celebrating their best players by placing them in wholly irrelevant exhibition games! The CWHL, the NWHL, and the KHL will all have games played this weekend with players from all over their respective maps coming together, and we'll chat a little about these games. We'll also explore seemingly idiocy shown by Jonathan Drouin in not showing up for AHL games, the Jets and Predators who will tangle shortly after the show ends at MTS Centre, Brian McGrattan's unfortunate and scary fall to the ice and whether hockey dodged a bullet on this one, and there will be a giveaway for those in the Winnipeg region who have Saturday night open and want to hang out with the Bisons women's hockey team for a good cause!

The phones are wide-open once tonight, so call in, answer a trivia question, get a sweet prize for this weekend, and chat some hockey with us at (204) 269-8636 (UMFM)! Make sure you tune your radio dial in the Winnipeg region to 101.5 on your FM dial or 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 have 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. Only shooting stars break the mould tonight on The Hockey Show tonight only on 101.5 UMFM!
