The Hockey Show - Episode 255

The Hockey Show returns to the airwaves and internet tonight with one of the shows with which we have the most fun. Every year, we seem to end up with odds and ends in our Shwag Bag that we don't really have any contests for, so we do our annual Prize Bag Purge before the school year starts so we can start fresh in September with a new batch of prizes to be won. Tonight, you have a chance to win stuff if you call in and play the game show we like to call "Pick Your Poison"!

Before we get to that, though, there's a very special day happening today across Canada. It's Children's Miracle Treat Day again at Dairy Queen, and I'm posting this all on my own accord because I really believe in this cause. If you aren't aware, net proceeds from every Dairy Queen Blizzard treat sold at participating Dairy Queen locations will be donated to your local Children's Miracle Network member hospitals. Every day, nearly 5000 children enter a Children's Miracle Network member hospital for treatment. Help participating Dairy Queen restaurants help local kids by purchasing a Blizzard Treat today on Thursday, August 10. That includes the Winnipeg Children's Hospital, so get out there and enjoy some ice cream to help kids across this great province get the treatments they need and deserve.

As for the "Pick Your Poison" game, I will honestly say that the name of the game is far worse than anything we have to offer. There are no Whammys as seen to the right with Press Your Luck either... unless you happen to choose a Toronto Maple Leafs prize pack. It's a very simple game - pick a number and you win the corresponding prize under that number if you can answer a fairly simple trivia question. And by "fairly simple", Beans and I guarantee that you can't get these questions wrong. In fact, I'm not sure these trivia questions are even trivia. Most don't have wrong answers.

In saying that, if you want to win some free gear, call us at (204) 269-UMFM. That's 204-269-8636 for those with no letters on their phone's keypad. Phone lines will open at 5:35pm sharp, and we'll give away everything in the Shwag Bag tonight! Oh, and we'll also talk a little hockey as well as we chat about Eddie Olczyk's battle with colon cancer, Hockey Canada's efforts in Russia and at the U-18 women's camp, a new Bisons women's hockey recruit, the Dallas Stars taking a stand in Texas, and Cam Cole's article in the National Post about kids who play hockey year-round. Lots of chatter and laughs will be heard tonight, so tune in and win!

Maybe you're asking how you can listen to the show because you're just discovering it and you wanna win some gear! That's great, and thanks for listening! We suggest that you download the UMFM app on your phone or tablet. It's the easiest and most convenient way to listen to any of UMFM's great shows any time of the day, so go get it!

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.
