The Hockey Show - Episode 183

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns tonight with announcements, discussions, arguments, laughter, and more! There has been a lot going on in the world of hockey since Beans and I have sat down for a discussion on all of it, so tonight seems as good a time as any to clear the board and start fresh as the NHL Playoffs approach. One announcement has to do with that very topic, but there's a pile of other stuff that has happened, will happen, and is ongoing as we kick into another episode of The Hockey Show!

Last year, I did something I probably shouldn't have done when I cancelled the Survivor: NHL Playoffs contest. So this year, to correct my galactic stupidity, Beans and I are bringing back the contest! Once things are finalized in terms of playoff spots on Thursday, April 7 - how convenient! - we'll kick the contest off that night on The Hockey Show! This is one of the funner things we do on the show and I really regretted the decision last year, so this year I'm gonna go all-out for the participants! 16 people will be entered into a contest that features the biggest and best prizes our little show will offer to date!

One of the best parts of the Survivor: NHL Playoffs contest is that ANYONE can win since it's exactly like an office Survivor pool! There's no hockey knowledge, trivia, or information needed! You randomly select one number from 1 to 16 that has a random playoff-bound team associated with the number, and that's your team for the playoffs! Once your team gets bounced, you get to do a Survivor-style exit interview! You can rant about refs that conspired against your team, how your team undermined you by not showing up when you needed them, and/or anything else that may have contributed to your team's exit from Playoff Island!

I am currently working through prizing and getting stuff set up with vendors, but if you want your product featured on The Hockey Show, get in touch with me! We'll go over the rules tonight and next week in preparation for April 7, so tune in and get ready for the best hockey content on radio today!

We'll also chat about the CIS National Hockey Championships and who did what in each of the men's and women's tournaments, a serious inequality in the women's tournament, the new-look AHL Jets, Kevin Spacey and the Florida Panthers, a very cool event coming up in Winnipeg, and much more! Of course, you won't get this kind of stuff from that other sports radio station because they just don't care about its listeners as much as we do. We talk all walks of hockey and we design contests so that every listener can win. It's that kind of commitment to you that makes us - The Hockey Show and 101.5 UMFM - entirely different. And because we appreciate your support, it's why we want to give you a chance to win something from our station!

The phones will be open for questions, comments, and everything else so give us a call at (204) 269-UMFM (8636)! Of course, 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! 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. We'll get you set up for hockey's craziest contest tonight on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!
