Some August Long Inspiration

Ok maybe you don't need a whole lot of inspiration to make a Long Weekend the best it can possibly be... But still some inspiration may be needed when you head back to work Tuesday and with that The Eagle wants to give further props to Megan Chisholm for her swim across the English Channel

Megan joined us in studio yesterday to talk about Juvenile Diabetes (which she raised around 10 G for) and that swim

Don't forget to get down to the ball park this weekend as well for games 1 and 2 of the first round Swift Current/Weyburn WMBL playoff matchup... 7:05 tonight and tomorrow at Mitchell Field

Once again be responsible this long weekend and basically when you get home from work hide the vehicle keys for the weekend!

Eagle The Elmwood Round Four

Blog July 31 Golf

Back out at Elmwood this afternoon in preparation of the 4th (actually ignore the title 5th) giveaway tomorrow morning... One golfer who found an Eagle 94.1 ball is going to win a hundred dollar GC from Cap It in Med Hat.

Ended up being a personal best for myself, but the game did ironically start falling apart at that 6th hole (coincidence it's located right beside the shack that serves cold bunnies?)

Playing golf in front of some of the SC Indians didn't help the confidence heading down the backstretch either... Zach Manley may be a pitcher but he can absolutely bomb a drive straight down the fairway (a 350ish yard drive that almost plunked friend of the show Candace Woodside)

Speaking of the Tribe, the playoffs start tomorrow... And as I had mentioned yesterday while doing play by play I'll throw a pregame interview with Manager Joe Carnahan on here (some technical difficulties forced it onto the editing floor)

Let's fill up Mitchell Field and let Weyburn know how Swift Current fans represent... 7:05 first pitch tomorrow night

August Long

Blog July 30 Herbert

August Long is coming up in a hurry, now halfway through another work week.  With the August Long, Herbert always plays host to their own Stampede... Tuesday we had Brian in studio to give you all the details

Also Tuesday morning, we got on the phone long distance (The company kindly picked up the charge on the call) to Brooks... The 11th Annual Medieval Festival is going out there in a couple weekends, but sounds like a ton of fun if you're into that time period

More info available here -> http://brooksfaire.com/

And once again playoff baseball comes to the city... Friday and Saturday games 1 and 2 of the first round of WMBL playoff action as the Tribe hosts Weyburn, 7:05 both nights.  One last home game in the regular season as well... Tonight 7:05 at Mitchell Field the Tribe host Moose Jaw (beating the Miller Express 8-3 last night on the road)... Tonight's game also on The Eagle starting at 6:55

2014 WMBL Central Division Champs

SC

First off props have to go out to the 2014 Swift Current Indians for bringing another pennant to the city, clinching the Central Division last night with a 9-3 win over the Yorkton Cardinals.

With the win the Tribe will head to the East side of the playoffs, hosting the Weyburn Beavers in games 1 and 2 Friday and Saturday... Heading to Weyburn for 3 and 4 on Sunday and Monday (if necessary)... And again if necessary game 5 will be at Mitchell Field on Tuesday after the long weekend.

Two games still remain on the regular season schedule (the Indians can play spoiler to their Central Division rival Moose Jaw with a couple of wins) as the Miller Express still have a chance at home field advantage over Medicine Hat in their first round matchup (heading to the West for the playoffs).  That home field advantage hinges on these two games against the Tribe though and no doubt manager Joe Carnahan wants both of these games regardless of already clinching the division.

Tonight on the road tune in to The Eagle at 6:55 for pre game in Moose Jaw, tomorrow cheer the team through their final regular season game 7:05 first pitch from Mitchell Field (that game also on The Eagle if you can't make it)

Finally... tried to find a highlight of the Pirates weird looking double play from yesterday and couldn't find anything on YouTube, but I did come across this gem

Is it just me or has Jeter not aged a day from his debut til now (and from the video quality you can tell how long ago that debut was)

3 in 3 To Wrap Up The Season

SC

The Tribe have one final push into the playoffs with 3 games in 3 nights (all on The Eagle, all starting at 6:55 with pregame).

Tonight is Pack The Park Night #2... The first was back at the start of the season... Come out and you automatically have a chance to win a bunch of cool giveaways courtesy of The Eagle and our sister stations (AM and that station that plays Bruno Mars 18 times a day)

The season wraps up with two big games (whoever made the 2014 WMBL sked had good vision).  The Indians are currently 2 games up on the Moose Jaw Miller Express for the Central Division crown.  With a win tonight and a Moose Jaw loss (tonight hosting Melville) those two games would become less important, but still going into the playoffs it's always nice to be winning.

As of right now it looks as though (with the Central Division title) Swift will head to the East Division portion of the playoffs and battle either Weyburn or Yorkton (just a few days ago laying a beat down on the Tribe 10-3 which is just an extra reason that tonight should be a good one).

To sum it all up get to the park tonight and Wednesday night and support one of the most sucessful franchises in WMBL history and tune in on the road tomorrow night at 6:55 from Moose Jaw (again if you can't make it to the park tonight or Wednesday we will have those games on The Eagle as well same time)
