The Hockey Show - Episode 336

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, has a ton of work to do tonight as there have been trades made, championships won, championships to be awarded, and we'll likely dive into a topic that once again needs addressing despite our many discussions about fan behaviour. It's like we, as humans, never learn that in this day and age there are cameras everywhere thanks to smartphones, and likely someone will be capturing whatever you're doing if it even remotely close to being out of the ordinary. Sometimes, I really wonder how people who were captured in this video can look themselves in the mirror and be happy with what they see.

The man to the left is Jonathan Diaby, and he was the Marquis de Jonquière player who endured the racist comments in a game against Saint-Jérôme. There is no way that this should be happening in 2019, and Beans, Jason Pchajek, and myself will discuss how this happens as it's not the first time that we've seen this kind of treatment of African-American players. We'll also break down the trade deadline deals, we'll talk about who won the Winnipeg High School Hockey League championship, we'll set you up for the epic Canada West Championship battle between Manitoba and Alberta, and we'll talk about who else may be joining these two teams in Charlottetown. It should be another busy show, so make sure you're tuned in at 5:30pm!

The new UMFM website's online streaming player is pretty awesome. If you're using an Apple device, the player doesn't seem to like Safari yet, but we highly recommend you use the TuneIn app found on the App Store or perhaps another browser. If you do use the TuneIn app, you won't be disappointed. It's a solid app.

Having lost faith in Facebook, I spend far less time on that site for good reasons. In saying that, you can still email all show questions and comments to! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter! We're here to listen to you, so make your voice heard!

Tonight, Teebz, Beans, and Jason Pchajek discuss some very ugly incidents that have happened in Canada regarding racism and how we may go about stopping it from happening again, the trade deadline with winners and losers from our perspectives, high school hockey, university hockey, and much more only on The Hockey Show found exclusively on 101.5 UMFM, on the UMFM app, on the web stream!
