THE DEBATE – Hockey Podcast | Episode 81
WHL in Brandon and Babcock Ousted
On location at Watoba Place in Brandon Manitoba, Brad Burud and Blake Friars are arguing hockey again. The Western Hockey League weekend was filled with great hockey games and a very entertaining episode of THE DEBATE Hockey Podcast. The Brandon Wheat Kings game versus the Calgary Hitmen is discussed and the Regina Pats game previewed. Then it is time to clear the air on the Mike Babcock situation. Who is surprised that he was fired? The show then hits overdrive as the crew talks Islanders, Makar, Rask and the Flames. The show ends with a very interesting twist. Brad and Blake are opening hockey cards and seeing who strikes it big.
Brad Burud the owner/editor of the Inside Edge Hockey News. I am a huge fan of hockey, from youth hockey, to junior hockey, and of course professional hockey. I have played, coached, worked as statistician, and watched hockey all of my life. Hockey is not just a game, it is a lifestyle and family. The game of hockey is great! It can bring you nights of great enjoyment. It also brings nights where you feel like your team will never win. I am proud to be a journalist for the greatest game in the world. I have a degree in Business Administration, Psychology from Minot State University. I also have a Hockey General Manager and Scouting, and Sports Communications/Journalism degree from Sports Management Worldwide. I am also a member of the Sports Executives Association. Most of all I am a fan. Hockey is a huge part of my life and my families life.
