This event, of course, would only work in Canada. Having said that and knowing the atrocity that is NHL coverage in the States...I'm hoping that even ESPN can see that this game should be televised here in the States.
I hope this works. If the NHL can get some outdoor games in, even if it's in East German Snot, Saskatchewan, it'll be great for attendance and ratings, just to spice things up.
Of course, it's mroe likely that the ice will melt, or that it'll snow, or that something else simply awful will happen.
Sometimes I ask myself why I watch WWE after all the crap it's given me. HLA, necro, HHH, and so on. And then it hits me. That one simple phrase that can be modified and used for anything that gets you down, yet makes you keep coming back.
Every episode has the potential to be the best one ever, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it after sitting through this shit.
Originally posted by The GoonAre any of the Western Canadian weiners planning on going? I am moving to Calgary in Sept so I'm thinking this game would be worth the drive to Edmonton, just for the spectacle of it all.
We're actually trying to get a crew from here in Calgary to head up. As much as Edmonton both sucks and blows, it should be a blast.
According to the major sports networks, the NHL has convened a meeting of their Board of Governors for January 14th. It's speculated that the Board will either set a drop-dead date or just declare the season kaput.
