The Hockey Show - Episode 176

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, hits the airwaves tonight with a few guests, but down a co-host. Beans has reluctantly decided to remain within walking distance of a receptacle due to his battle with a rather nasty stomach bug, and he's going to miss tonight's show because of this. Get well soon, Beans! In saying this, I'll welcome a few guests into the studio as it's getting near ball hockey season again!

Formerly the Re/Max Cup, the FXR Cup returns this year to Glenwood Community Centre in Winnipeg for more ball hockey action as Crystal Sound look to defend their title after their stunning victory over four-time champions The Mob! Registration opened on February 1 for the FXR Cup, so if you want in it's $400 per team for a minimum of 11 players and maximum of 17 players. There are a ton of player prizes, door prizes, player swag bags, and other incentives. The best part? Each team gets 3 games guaranteed against some of the best ball hockey players in this province! Kevin Wilson, organizer and director of the FXR Cup, will be in-studio tonight to talk about the tournament, its growth, where it's headed, and much more! We'll also look at some hockey headlines and get his and a few of the players' opinions on these topics!

We have people in-studio so the phones will be closed as Kevin and his band of merry ball hockey stars take refuge at the station! 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. The FXR Cup will be discussed tonight on The Hockey Show tonight only on 101.5 UMFM!
