Sports Open Line: Blues New Coach & Kurt Warner
Following the announcement of new Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock, the 24th coach in Blues franchise history, our Chris Kerber, also “The Voice of the Blues”, sat down with him. Hitchcock, 59, has been a head coach for 3 teams in the NHL (Dallas, Philadelphia, and Columbus) since 1995.
NHL Hall of Famer Brett Hull is not only very familiar with the Blues as he spent 11 season in St. Louis, but also knows coach Hitchcock very well. From 1998-2001, Hull played under Hitchcock while with the Dallas Stars. Together, they won the 1999 Stanley Cup Championship and the 2000 Western Conference Championship. Brett is now involved with Miken Hockey, the best maker of hockey sticks according to “The Golden Brett”.
Time for Warner’s Warm-Up! Runned through the First Things First Foundation, they are not only helping the homeless and cold needing coats in the local area, but also for those in Joplin where the community is still recovering. Kurt also talks with Kevin about the 1-7 Rams, a team won Super Bowl XXXIV with in 2000.
The announcement on Sunday regarding the University of Missouri moving to the SEC was not a shock, but a relief to a situation that had been lingering for some time. Kevin Wheeler gives his take on what Tigers fan can expect once Mizzou makes the transition next July.
