It was 1:30am when I turned on the tube and see there's a live hockey game still on and in the 3rd overtime. Ridiculous! Watch a couple episodes of Entourage on DVD... and then find that the game is STILL going! What I want to know is how many fans were still there.

When John Vanbiesbrouck starts owning up to drinking Pedialyte during games, you know they're running out of material. That game looked like it could've gone longer, just because both teams looked like they had enough in the tank to not lose, but not enough to win.
Considering I watched this one, as well as that 5OT Flyers/Penguins game, to their bitter end, does that make me a masochist?
I haven't followed hockey seriously since the Blackhawks folded, or whatever happened to them about 25 years ago.. but I still can't resist a random NHL overtime playoff game. Caught this one late in the third period, and settled in from there.
Bonus for me, it ended just in time for me to catch "Late Night Poker" here.
Get college teams. Do a double-header. This is the only hockey game I care about, and The Lovely Mrs. Tracker and I are glued to the entire broadcast. NBC is losing so much on this lockout, and I suggest they hold the entire event sans the NHL game.
