Icemen Gets NHL Call Up

 

The Evansville Icemen season hasn't turned out quite like planned, but one player has reason to celebrate. Goalkeeper Chris Driedger was recalled by the NHL's Ottawa Senators. This is the second time the Senators have called up Driedger, the first being February 17th.
Driedger is expected to play tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh.
With Driedger recalled, the Icemen have signed Alex Vazzano to fill his roster spot. Vazzano (which is an awesome hockey name, ha!) will join the Icemen for their game Friday against the Florida Everblades.
Although the season is winding down, there is still time for you to check out the Icemen!

Chad And Jac’s Pre-Radiothon Message [VIDEO]

We say it every year, and it's completely true... Thursday and Friday are our two most favorite work days of each year. It's time for our WBKR St. Jude Radiothon. We have an amazing celebrity phone bank lined up for y'all, St. Jude families will be joining us in the studio, Jerry Morris and the Angels for Ashley cooking team are ready to go and our 2015 St. Jude song is ready for its debut. There's only one thing we weren't counting on... this winter storm.

But, as our dear friend Jerry Morris said, "Cancer doesn't stop because of the snow and we won't either." We will continue on with our St. Jude Radiothon and here's why...

This Video Will Change The Way You View Others

Isn't it fascinating how we justify who we help and who we don't? We allow ourselves to judge a complete stranger based on very few known facts. The truth is, at the end of the day, we're all the same.

This video made me cry. Maybe because of how this man was treated. Or, maybe it's because I'm afraid that I would have reacted like so many others did.
