The Hockey Show, Canada’s only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, returns with its full roster back as Teebz and Jenna really put the business of hockey during this pandemic under a microscope. Lots of people and lots of businesses are hurting right, and we both understand that sports is a way out of thinking about that problem all the time. The costs that go into staging tournaments and bubbles and everything else aren’t just dollars and cents, though, and Teebz and Jenna look at that tonight!
Tonight, Teebz and Jenna play the overcautious parents to the IIHF’s World Junior Championship with respect to everything they’ve done wrong so far in getting this tournament off the ground. Our two hosts then shift their focus to the WHL cancelling the start date to their season, whether or not the OHL will follow suit, the madness seen in the opening weekend of the ECHL, and how the NHL might navigate their season by watching another league’s successes and failures. Teebz issues an apology to the San Jose Sharks, Teebz and Jenna talk about Jaromir Jagr’s longevity in playing professional hockey, and they also take a quick look at having the Florida Panthers and Calgary Flames create departments specifically focused on goaltending. It’s another busy show that clips along at a good pace, 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, so if you want to stream the show I’d recommend Radio Garden to do that as it works nicely with Safari. If you’re more of an app person, we recommend you use the TuneIn app found on the App Store. 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 break down the IIHF’s follies, the WHL’s intelligence, the ECHL’s madness, the NHL’s future plans, the Sharks’ wardrobe, Jagr’s awesomeness, goaltending excellence, and much more exclusively on 101.5 UMFM and on the UMFM.com web stream!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
