(Podcast Online Thu. Oct. 22)

The 2015-16 IceMen regular season begins THIS WEEKEND! In the spirit of getting the season started off on a fun note, this week’s special edition of “IceMen Insights” features a start-to-finish interview with IceMen Director of Marketing and Game Day Operations Bridget McDonald!

Derick and I begin our interrogation discussion by asking Bridget to explain her role and what a typical game day entails for her. We also talk about the physical demands IceMen staffers face during home games, as well as the biggest challenge of Bridget’s job. Plus, all 3 of us offer up our predictions for the 2015-16 home opener attendance.

We also get Bridget’s “insider” take on a bunch of IceMen promotions, including the home opener, “Back to the Future” Night, Education Day, Prostate Cancer Awareness Night featuring “Miracle on Ice” Olympian Dave Christian, Mascot Night in celebration of Blizzard’s birthday (with Blizzard bobbleheads), the Teddy Bear Toss for 911 Gives Hope, New Year’s Eve with post-game fireworks, “Star Wars” Night, Disney/Marvel Night, Pink the Rink Weekend with pink ice, Baby Races, St. Patrick’s Day with green ice, Autism Awareness Night, and the home finale featuring the ZOOperstars.

Plus: Stephen Rickard in heels, Derick is easy, Ron Geary is a 5-year old, courting the Hanson brothers, Save The Wieners, and something gives Derick “the feels” in his nether regions!
