We’ve thankfully got our audio issues all resolved, and plenty to talk about this week as the IceMen continue trying to work out their kinks as well…
Episode #102 features a quick recap of last weekend’s IceMen games, discussion about Dan Gendur’s potential and the Gens boys spending some quality time together in the penalty box, and details about Oliver Gabriel’s gruesome leg injury (which will keep him out of action for at least 2-3 months) and Aaron Gens’ controversial hit on Fort Wayne’s Chris Auger (which has ended Auger’s season).
Derick and I also wax poetic about “The IceMen Family,” look forward to the return of a familiar on-ice official, talk about upcoming games and promotions such as Prostate Cancer Awareness Night and Pink the Rink Night, ponder the oddities of the IceMen playing hockey on pink and orange ice on back-to-back nights, offer up predictions for Friday’s post-game jersey auction, and examine the team’s needs for more balanced scoring and continued improvement of team chemistry.
This episode also includes a very special “Shocker’s Hockey Rock Song of the Week,” as we pay tribute to the brave young man who captured the hearts of the Tri-State and the world, 13-year old IceMen fan Lane Goodwin. Lane passed away last Wednesday after battling cancer for two years, but his upbeat attitude and the “Thumbs Up For Lane” campaign to increase awareness of childhood cancer certainly left an indelible mark on an untold number of folks everywhere.
Episode #102 clocks in at 38:12 overall, and our tribute to Lane begins at the 11:40 mark. Enjoy!
