It's Christmas day in Caniac Nation and we're so excited. Probably too excited, so please excuse our exuberance as we get prepped to see the Hurricanes hit the ice for the first time in this 2017-18 season. Mike Maniscalco from Fox Sports Carolinas and your host from Hurricanes Live is back with us to discuss his excitement over the home opener. Game Show Friday Legend Matt Riegler also joins us in the studio. If you need any more details about the opening night tailgate, you can get them right here. Big thanks to our friends at New Belgium, Donatos, and SportsChannel8 for making sure this is a tailgate not to be missed. And thanks to this weeks sponsor mybookie.ag.
The studio is chock full of hockey goodness with Derek and Mike in their normal spots and Cory Lavalette, sports editor for North State Journal in the guest chair. We talk thru the Canes preseason, our excitement for what this team's future, and your #cheatmail questions. We talk about Vegas odds for the Canes point total from our friends at mybookie.ag and Derek reviews a tasty brew. Thanks as always for listening! www.patreon.com/section328

The boys are back in town and ready to talk some hockey. We took part in Canes media day and are here to bring you all the stuff we learned. We also took part in the Jim Connors Media Cup ball hockey game, and we're happy to share that no one was majorly injured during the game, although Maniscalco's groin may disagree. As always, we close w/ our thanks and a beer review. It's that time... business is about to pick up.
We welcome back to Cheaters Never Win, from NBC Sports and Fox Sports, the voice of the Carolina Hurricanes John Forslund. John spends 45 minutes w/ us discussing everything from the early years in Greensboro to who will be the next captain of your Carolina Hurricanes. We throw in our normal beer review, but lets be honest, you're hear for John. Enjoy, because we sure did.
