Wordpress PHP RSS Widget tweak

We use the RSS Widget on our Wordpress site for event lists.  I'd like to get our RSS Widget on our Wordpress site to check to see if the date of the RSS [pubdate] is greater then the current date but I haven't figured out a way to add it to the code.

I've pasted the code to where I think I could add an if statement.

I would appreciate any help in figuring this out.

$date = '';
		if ( $show_date ) {
			$date = $item->get_date();

			if ( $date ) {
				if ( $date_stamp = strtotime( $date ) )
					$date = ' <span class="rss-date">' . date_i18n( get_option( 'date_format' ), $date_stamp ) . '</span>';
					$date = '';

if( $date_stamp = strtotime( $date ) )

should be

if( $date_stamp == strtotime( $date ) )
