Locker Talk lineup for October 23

Change is the operative word in local sporting circles today. Red Sox manager Justin Eiswirth is stepping down, after leading the Sox to a second straight WMBL championship. I've also caught wind of a shakeup in local amateur football circles that may raise a few eyebrows. More on that later.

In the meantime, thanks again to Arielle Wood for filling in with Mitch as hosts of Locker Talk in my absence the past few weeks. Now that my RMF coaching duties are fulfilled, it's time to get back into the studio. So, here's the lineup for this week's show. It airs tonight at 9 p.m. and Saturday at noon and 3 p.m.

 Locker Talk Guests for October 23/12
Co-Host:  Mitchell Blair

  1.  A recap of the Prairie Junior Football Conference final between the Regina Thunder and the Saskatoon Hilltops. Guest: Camille Lagimodiere (Thunder Receiver).   
  2. Outgoing Mayor Pat Fiacco reflects on how the local sporting landscape has changed over the past 12 years. Guest: Pat Fiacco (Regina Mayor). 
  3. A Regina men’s touch football squad captures a third straight silver medal at the national championships. Guests: Deron Kuski & Reilly Kuski (Megalomania touch football club). 
  4. Looking for a great way to keep your young football player in shape, and get them ready for next season? Get them into wrestling!  Guest: Leo McGee (Head Coach, Cattown Wrestling Club, U of R Cougars). 
  5. U of R Athlete of the Month. Reporter Arielle Wood interviews the University of Regina’s Athlete of the Month for October, and the U of R Rams starting quarterback. Guests: Joey Dwyer (Rams DB) & Marc Mueller (Rams QB). 
  6. The Thom Trojans celebrate a successful high school football season, and look ahead to the playoffs. Guests: George Heuk (Assistant Coach), Eric Wood (MLB) Dryden Kemp (LB/RB) & Atlee Simon (RB/LB). 
  7. The Blair Necessities.  Mitch’s weekly sports commentary. 

    Note: Don't be surprised if the Thunder announce a coaching change in the next day or so, ending Erwin Klempner's tenure as head coach. Hope I'm wrong, but my spidey sense is tingling big-time about this one.
