Home Games On The Horizon

Blog Mar 24 Playoffs

As pictured home ice has been good for MOST teams throughout the first 2 games of the WHL Quarter-Final matchups and the Broncos/Tigers series is no exception.  Just means the Broncos will need to take care of things on home ice tomorrow and Wednesday to have a chance at moving forward.  The best way for you to help is to get to the rink and show your support by creating a playoff atmosphere in the iPlex like Kyle plans to do

He won our Game 3 edition of Bronco Trivia, the Game 4 edition coming your way tomorrow on The Eagle at 7:20... Grab your game tickets at the Stable in the iPlex, grab a jersey, a shirt, a hat, a cowbell, whatever you need to do to show the Tigers that the fans here in Swift Current are better than any they might possibly have out across the border.  Renew The Rivalry and Pack the Plex for Game 3!

Spring in Swift?

Blog Mar 21 Snow

Waking up to this bright and early on the second official day of spring (classic Saskatchewan).

Tried to get a hold of the Tigers ticket office throughout the morning with no luck, however we did have Ron Resler in to tee up tomorrow's 5th Annual SPCA Kitty Cat Walk

And on a personal level this really rounded out my morning

Blog Mar 21 Win

No amount of snow can dampen the enthusiasm you get from a weekend with a free donut! And if you haven't won on the Roll Up yet some hope that there are winners out there!

Also some WHL Playoff action to look forward to this weekend (either by driving up the Number 1 or tuning into The Eagle) Games 1 & 2 of the Broncos first round matchup with the Tigers go tonight and tomorrow night. Game time at 7:30 Pregame at 7:00 on The Eagle.  And inspired by a retweet of the Brandon Wheat Kings(which took alot of effort for me to do)... I was inspired to make my picks for the WHL Quarter Final matchups.

First a little teeup from that Wheat Kings tweet on the Broncos/Tigers series

The Medicine Hat Tigers meet up with the Swift Current Broncos for a WHL Playoff series for the first time since the 2008-09 season.  Tyler Ennis and the Tigers defeated Cody Eakin and the Broncos four games to three in the first round of the 2009 WHL Playoffs.

March Madness

March Madness

And the Madness has officially begun... Down in America with college basketball.  Here in Western Canada with the WHL Playoffs (more on the Broncos in a minute)

It's always a special feeling to watch basketball from sunrise to long after sunset... It's an even more special feeling to sit and watch your bracket fall apart in front of your very eyes.  Going 3 for 4 on the play in games was a decent start (and I am pretty proud of picking Tenn over Iowa in what was an amazing overtime play in game).  First game of the tourney Ohio St. Decides to blow it to cross state Dayton (to be fair this ruined more than just my bracket) and from there things always just seem to fall apart.  At the end of the day I'll be happy if Wichita State wins it all, goes undefeated and gives me some bragging rights (not sure who I'd have bragging rights over but let's just go with it)

The WHL playoffs adding some hockey dramatics to March as well... Calgary Kootney kicks it off this evening.  The Broncos get rolling tomorrow in the Hat for game 1... Games 3 and 4 at home slated for Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

You may have seen a little bit on this via facebook or twitter.  If you were wondering what the Mayors Challenge is all about it went down right here on The Eagle earlier this morning

Basically fill the rink and rock a jersey and let's return the iPlex (and Bronco Pride) to the height of it's glory from back in the late 80's early 90's.  Couldn't think of a better series to get rowdy over than this one either.  Pack the Plex, Get loud, and make the iPlex the hardest barn in the WHL for teams to play in.

Broncos Are Playoff Bound

Blog Mar 17 Playoffs

A busy morning heading back to work as we talked to both Karen of the Curling Club

And Dianne of the Broncos

We also wrapped up the Innovation Credit Union iSeat for another season... It took awhile (and a little bit of confusion) but eventually we would find a winner

Tomorrow on the show is our last Tuesday Tan (at least for the time being with mother nature giving you seem free tanning minutes) and don't forget to grab some playoff tickets before they are gone... A ticket bought by you prevents a Tiger fan from coming down and polluting our rink with that ugly orange.  306-773-1509 or in person at the stable in the iPlex to grab your single game tickets starting at 1 this afternoon.

Broncos/Warriors To Wrap Up The Regular Season

Blog Mar 14 Broncos

The Broncos looking to move up the Standings with two games left in the WHL Regular Season, tonight in Swift Current, tomorrow in Moose Jaw

I have been predicting a jump to 5th in the conference and a first round matchup with the Medicine Hat Tigers which was the motivation behind today's Bronco Trivia question... When was the last time the Broncos faced the Tigers in the playoffs

Tyler picked up 4 tickets and 20 Bronco Bucks to the final home game of the year this evening at 7:05 (ticket information at or 306-773-1509). If you make it to the game tonight you'll have the chance to win the final Innovation Credit Union iSeat of the season on your back to work Monday morning... The final iSeat worth $40 dollars as yesterday Daniel took home the biggest pot of the year worth $180
