As it's the second to last game before the Christmas break, tonight I'm happy to give away my present to you.
I have no clue how long this tradition has gone on for, but I'm guessing it's a decade or more. It's all business on the ice until the end of the game on Friday night of course, and it's also all business 99% of the time in my interviews with the players are as well.
Having said that, it's a good time of year to have a little fun with the team as spirits are high with time at home and time with family and friends looming on the horizon after what has been for most of the guys a very long grind from August or September.
Christmas is also of course a magical time - where wishes can even sometimes come true, if Santa has your name on his NICE LIST.
Listen during the 1st and 2nd Intermissions for "A Very Merry Bulldogs Christmas", a compilation of the Christmas wish lists of all the Bulldogs players, coaches and staff. What do they have on their wish list to be under the tree when they wake up on Christmas morning.
I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed the experience of putting it together!
.Friday night it's A Very Merry BCHL Christmas - the same format but with Coaches and Broadcasters from around the entire British Columbia Hockey League.
