The Hockey Show - Episode 118

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back with one of our many annual events that benefits you, the listener! We like to celebrate big events, and we try to give you presents on our birthday. Well, there's really only one other day on the calendar where a crazy amount of gifts are exchanged, so we're going big tonight as we hold another fun night of giveaways!

The Hockey Show's annual Secret Santa event happens tonight! We'll be giving away a ton of stuff ranging from magnets to framed pictures to CDs to DVDs and Blu-Rays to clothing! Every year we like to clean out the loot bag that we've amassed over the year, and tonight's the night where we'll give it all away!

The game is easy to play: call in, pick a random number, and you get that prize! Because it's a Secret Santa, though, we give you no indication as to what the prizes may be before you pick, and there's always our favorite gift to give away, Grandma's Gift! That means someone, if they are (un)lucky, will go home with a Toronto Maple Leafs-branded prize because Grandma figures all the kids love the Maple Leafs, right? From the looks of those two to the left, Grandma really appears to be into this gift-giving thing. In nay case, we'll have a number of prizes ranging from the $15 to $30 range up for grabs tonight. Sounds good? You betcha!

We'll also do a quick European update as a number of great people across the pond are preparing for the Christmas break, and we want to update everyone on what's happening with them. The image to the right is Friend of the Show Brandon Reid as he stands in front of the SE Arena in Vojens, Denmark where he coaches. That picture was taken by his wife and Friend of the Show Jessica Scott-Reid, and it looks pretty nice in Denmark for December. We'll have a full update on how Brandon is doing, how Jared Aulin and his team in Orebro is doing in the Swedish Elite League, and we'll catch up with the Manitobans and former Jets playing in the KHL this season!

Tonight, listeners and readers, you want to call in. This is your night to get something fun from The Hockey Show! Hit us up on 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region or you can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! Call us at 204-269-8636 (269-UMFM) so you can get a prize tonight! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us 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. There are lots of ways for you to interact on The Hockey Show, and we want to hear from you tonight so you can get yourself a Secret Santa gift from The Hockey Show!
