The strangest thing happened this morning. The NHL has billed today as "Hockey Day In America" and NBC is carrying three games nationwide... Washington-Buffalo, Philly-Rangers, and The Beloved Wings-Minnesota Wild... beginning at 1230 hrs EST. So I dutifully tuned in and was chagrined to see BOTH the Amarillo and ABQ NBC affiliates were carrying the steenkin' Caps-Sabres game. Shit... that sucks now, don't it? But something happened about three minutes into the game when BOTH affiliates switched to the Wings game. YES! We'll take it!
So now we're at the first intermission in the Wings game and the second period period has started in Buffalo, so NBC is back to the Sabres-Caps. I have NO idea if NBC will go back to the Wings game but I can truthfully say this ain't no way to run a frickin' railroad. Or a network.
Ah, wait. An announcer just said "We'll get you back to the second period of the Wings game in just a few minutes." I stand corrected.
Let's Go Red Wings!
