The Hockey Show, Canada’s only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, returns to UMFM’s frequency this evening as the first week of lockdown has passed us by in Manitoba. I’m hopeful we get through this and see a slowdown in cases and hospitalizations, but we need to do better, Manitoba. For everyone outside this province, continue to do your part by staying home, wearing your mask, avoiding any gatherings, and staying vigilant about all these measures. If you want to have a holiday season of any kind and events beyond the holidays, we need to be doing the work now.
We had a recognizable name planned for an interview tonight, but this guest asked for a little extra time to get over a non-COVID spell of illness. We can definitely grant that as we want out guests at their best, so Teebz and Jenna go through the 31 jerseys – why wasn’t Seattle included? – that the NHL revealed on Monday in their new “Reverse Retro” line of clothing. Find out which jerseys they liked and how many they hated, and one definitely outpaces the other. They also discuss all the shutdowns being seen in hockey across the planet with respect to the bubble situation that the NHL is planning, honour equipment managers thanks to two bits of news seen this past week, and they run through all the stats amassed by former Canada West women playing in professional leagues across the world! 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 firstname.lastname@example.org! 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 discuss new clothes, new cancellations for hockey, new bubbles and how the NHL will handle them, new honours for a couple of equipment managers, all sorts of news on how players are doing overseas, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the UMFM.com web stream!
