The Hockey Show, Canada’s only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, returns to the Winnipeg airwaves as Jenna and I are still firmly locked down thanks to the Code Red mandate. Honestly, we need to get our acts together, Canada. This can’t go on much longer. With the holiday season looking more and more like it may be in jeopardy, this should be a stark reminder that we need to stay home, avoid gatherings, wear masks, and be smart about our activities. I want to visit the cozy confines of the UMFM studios at some point in 2021, but it doesn’t seem things are going to go that way unless we all do our parts. In saying that, we have a guest who is also experiencing a lockdown herself tonight, so let’s meet our house-bound guest!
Tonight, Teebz and Jenna welcome CWHL legend, NCAA legend, and Winnipeg-born Delayne Brian back to the show! While we were hoping to have both players on, the timing didn’t work out for Brittany Esposito, so we’ll have to get her on a future show. Nevertheless, the chat with Delayne will be good as we get caught up on the last two years of her life since she was last on the show! We discuss moving into coaching, retirement from the professional side of sports, her ball hockey and beer-league hockey careers, settling into Calgary as a resident, getting a new roommate, her perspective on the loss of the Pronghorns after she experienced the same thing with Wayne State, what needs to be done to bring professional women’s hockey back, and we get her takes on the new Reverse Retro jerseys seen by the NHL. It’s a busy hour with Delayne Brian, so make sure you tune in tonight at 5:30pm CT tonight to hear all of this on one of 101.5 FM, Channel 718 on MTS TV, or on UMFM.com!
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 email@example.com! 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 and Jenna catch up with Delayne Brian on life after hockey, life as a coach and beer leaguer, life in Calgary, life when hockey disappoints you, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the UMFM.com web stream!
