The Hockey Show - Episode 404

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, invades the airspace once more tonight! Actually, I am really excited after teasing on the article yesterday about the guest I welcome tonight. As you may or may not know, I have played sledge hockey. Ok, maybe the right term is that I TRIED sledge hockey, and it's pretty clear that I'm a novice when it comes to the game. Tonight, though, we'll meet a gentleman who has two young athletes excelling at the game of sledge hockey who can likely skate circles around me as he filmed an entire documentary about the Manitoba Sledgehammers hockey team!

The gentleman to the left will give us the inside scoop on his newest film, The Tournament, as we meet writer and director Sam Vint! Sam and I chat about The Tournament, the content in the film, Isaac and Cooper - his son and daughter - playing for the Sledgehammers, and everything that happened surrounding the tournament in question in Blaine, Minnesota! It's a great chat with Sam about sledge hockey, the tournament, and the process that went into making the film, and I highly recommend everyone check out The Tournament! The second half of the show is Teebz going solo to talk about the firing of everyone who ever worked for the Buffalo Sabres including GM Jason Botterill, the suspension of sports programs at the University of Alberta for the 2020-21 season due to funding, and the announcement of the 2020 Sami Jo Small Hockey Camp which will happen from July 20-24 at Gateway Recreation Center! It's a busy show with lots of news, so make sure you tune into 101.5 UMFM or tonight at 5:30pm CT!

Where's the best place can you hear tonight's show if you're outside Winnipeg or not near a radio, you ask? The new UMFM website's online streaming player is pretty awesome if you want to listen online. 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.

If you have questions, you can email all show queries and comments to! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter! I'm here to listen to you, so make your voice heard!

Tonight, Teebz speaks to film-maker extraordinaire Sam Vint about The Tournament, sledge hockey, and the process that goes into making a documentary such as this, and the second-half of the show sees Teebz offer his thoughts about the changes inside the Buffalo Sabres, the University of Alberta's decision to suspend their athletics programs, the Sami Jo Small Hockey School, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the web stream!
