WIP "hockey nerd" night

For anyone who might be interested, I was listening to Glen Macnow on WIP the other night and he said that they will be having an NHL draft party of sorts on his show the night of the NHL draft. He said the show will be strictly for "hockey nerds" and I believe he will only be taking Flyers/NHL related calls. Keith Jones will be on hand to break down the draft and he mentioned that several Flyers players will be calling in throughout the night. I can't remember all of the names he mentioned, but one of them was Mike Knuble. Anyway, Glen's show airs from 7 pm to 11 pm on 610 AM WIP. Of all of the guys on WIP, he's definitely the most knowledgable when it comes to the Flyers and the NHL and I tend to agree with his opinions most of the time.

Glen: "So, GKJ, exactly HOW skinny is Kyle Turris?"

Almost positive I will be at the Draft Party in Philly at C&P's. WIP can say they are going to donate this time entirely to hockey but I don't believe them. If I don't end up at the draft party I will gladly tune in though to hear GJK's call in to hear some real hockey talk.

God it's that bad?

There is also a draft party at the Skate Zone in Voorhees but Idk if it's open to the public or season ticket holders only, hopefully the latter.

Enjoy the draft GKJ, at least you won't have to wait long to hear what the Flyers are doing.

Macnow does know a little about hockey but I'm sure he doesn't know any more about any of the top prospects than any of us do. He certainly has not seen any of them play live or on tv. His show would probably be better if he spent a couple of hours on here reading up. Nice to see somebody gives a crap at least.

It'll just be nice to hear people other than us talk about the Flyers especially during these long summer months. I mean what else are we going to do watch the Phillies blow some more games?

I'll be there, too. If the weather's not prohibitively hot, I'll have on one of my Umberger jerseys.
