The Hockey Show - Episode 122

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with our regular selves as Columbus, Beans, and I discuss the on-goings from the best game on the planet. Tonight's show is going to be a lot of fun. Not only do we discuss hockey, but we're also volunteering Columbus to be part of a social experiment! Rarely do radio shows get this kind of fun squeezed in, but we're going to put her through the ringer tonight as we try to make her more Canadian. This should be a beauty!

One of the fun things we get to do on The Hockey Show is partake in craziness. If you've heard the show, you know this happens almost weekly. However, Beans and I will step into the shoes of Mike Foligno and Jonathan Toews and have ourselves an All-Star Fantasy Draft! We'll put our thinking caps on to see who comes up with the arguably better team as we fight for All-Star Game supremacy. We'll also talk about the horrific All-Star Game uniforms, how the All-Star Game can become relevant again, and what to do to spark some interest in the Skills Competition as well.

Beyond those discussions, we'll talk about the IIHF Women's U18 World Championship, how proud we are of the Manitoban and Canadian ladies who wore the Maple Leaf in Buffalo, the recent play of the almost-healthy Winnipeg Jets, the Manitoba Bisons and their games against Lethbridge, and we'll run the social experiment!

As seen in the picture to the right, the snacks we'll feature tonight on the show will be exclusively Canadian, and we'll get Columbus - our resident American - to taste-test the snack foods she's never had before. In her defence, she has been in Canada for a while now, but I'm pretty sure we'll come across something she's never tried. I have accumulated a pile of stuff that Canadians know and love, and we'll see if she's a fan of our awesome snacks. There won't be any Tim Hortons or poutine because she's very aware of what those are, but there will be potato chips and chocolate bars for her to sample. And then she'll tell us over the air what she thinks of these items. Sounds fun, right? Should be interesting to say the least!

The phones will be open tonight at (204) 269-UMFM (8636), and you can hear what we're up to 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! You can tweet me anytime you like 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. There are lots of ways for you to interact with The Hockey Show!
