Tonight! On Public Access-2 HD!

If NBC had The Ocho, they'd air it there. Go Pens!
 
2009-06-12 08:57:58 AM  
Yeah, and they'll probably air it on the NHL network that most people don't have. Farking idiots, they have a dwindling fanbase as it is and the one time I actually want to watch a Stanley Cup game, I can't. Pure genius there, Bettman.

Congratulations to the Detroit Red Wings on winning another Stanley Cup!!

Oh, wait. I meant to post this tomorrow morning.

I've decided that I want the Penguins to win - for no other reason than to see the look on Hossa's face as time expires...
 
2009-06-12 10:02:14 AM  
I would like to see the Penguins win.

However, Crosby getting his ass kicked would be nice as well.

That's a pretty lame troll at the end of the headline, adminmitter.

best believe I'll be watching this on mute tonight.

Game 7. Sh*t, I'd watch a WNBA Game 7. (Do they have those?)

This is why I have XM. (Sorry) I can listen to either team's broadcast.

I'm confused, NHL.com and NBC.com both say its on NBC tonight?

There's a whole pack of Nova Scotians who would kick your butt for saying that, without spilling a drop of the beer in their other hand.

1) Live closer to the Canadian border.
2) Get CBC.
3) Profit.
 
2009-06-12 02:24:53 PM  
CBR ME ASAP:

Wait, you live in Rochester, you should already get CBC. WTF?

/not to mention the game being on NBC as well (ick)
 
2009-06-12 02:45:28 PM  
i already have the cup (see profile)

Um, it's on NBC. STFU. Complain when there is something to complain about.

The NHL SHOULD though try to avoid the NBA Finals nights (I know, not that much overlap in fans, but, it doesn't help. Tuesday nights ratings were down for both the compariable NHL Game 6 last year AND NBA Game 3 last year).

NBA seems to go with a Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday night approach to the finals. Cup finals should go Monday/Wednesday/Friday(or Saturday).

The reason the NHL got in bed with Versus is because Versus would treat them as their top dog. That was very attractive to Bettman and the owners. Instead of ESPN where you can get all kinds of other stuff and NHL would have taken a 4th, 5th, or 6th stage to the other major sports and possibly bowling or cheerleading. Anybody with Versus can find it. It's on your channel guide although I do understand a huge portion of the sports fan population don't know how to read.

As far as scheduling things against basketball games throughout the playoffs, they had 4 different networks to consider when making the schedule. Even in these finals they have the schedules of 3 to consider. Sure they would like to be the only game on TV but the truth is there is only a 10% overlap in fans that like both the blackest and the whitest leagues in North America.

I was hoping for a game 7...and it's here. Sadly, despite watching EVERY playoff game televised. I will miss it due to travel.

I know. I know. Boo Farking Hoo. That being said, GO PENS! Do what you did to Washington in game 7! Fark the Wings!

\Fark Bettman, too
 
2009-06-12 04:43:12 PM  
I dunno.. i'm torn here..

1. Red Wings are in Detroit.. Detroit sucks
2. Red Wings won it last year
3. Pens are in Pennsylvania.. as a state, it won the W.S and Superbowl..they are infringing upon Mass. as current best sports state (i know, Pitt and Philly are not the same)
4. I want to see Crosby get the validation he deserves and piss off the haters
5. Neither team are my Bruins

Dislike both teams for various reasons, still watching CBC down at the pub very shortly.

I, for one, can't wait to see what Don Cherry breaks out tonight. Gonna be epic.

Gotta root for the Wings again. Just don't like the Pens.

Don't worry - they, and the mod who greenlit it, will both look like idiots if the Wings win. :¬)

Before Game 6, he promised to break out his red jacket...the one that, whenever he wears it, ensures a Wings victory.

That's right - Don "No Europe" Cherry is on OUR SIDE. YEAH!

Prediction: Kennedy takes a Lindstrom slapshot square in the cheek and is rushed off the ice in a spray of blood. They perform emergency surgery on him between periods and reconstruct his face using bits of AHLer's faces, hockey tape and octopi-scrapings. FrankenKennedy returns and scores the winner in OT. Consensus later reveals that his looks have improved.
 
2009-06-12 05:50:05 PM  
yay, will actually be able to watch the game and post here. (goin' out to dinner first)
Too nervous. Most game 7 stats seem to favor the home team, but dang anything can happen. Please no overtime, I know you guys like it, but Ive gotta leave town as soon as the game is done.
 
2009-06-12 05:52:55 PM  
lets go wings!

As an outsider not vested in either team, I started the series wanting the Penguins to win. As the series progressed, I stopped caring more about who won but whether or not it was a good game. At this point in game 7, I'm just pulling for overtime. I'm not ready for the hockey season to be over quite yet.
 
2009-06-12 05:55:14 PM  
Detroit in 4OT.
 
2009-06-12 05:55:23 PM  
My liver will be happy the SCF have finally ended after tonight but until then let the drinking begin.

Go Wings!!!

Hehe, "Wings suck." Best playoff headline I've seen all season! Let's go Pens! I want to see TEARS in Hossa's eyes!!!

It's a cheap green, and I'm an Avs fan. What can I say? It was there.

I'm willing to take that risk. After going out of my way to stay nonpartisan throughout these playoffs, a healthy bit of Detroit-hating is good for the soul.

Prediction: With the game heading into overtime, NBC panics and has the power cut in the Joe. Conan jets over to the stadium and punches Bill Daly in the nose, just 'cause.
 
2009-06-12 05:59:36 PM  
Prediction: The NHL manages to lose the Stanley Cup en route to the game and is forced to award the players a large Dunkin' Donuts coffee.

Reading the top game 7's reminded of a comment from the last game where Hossa knocks in the winning goal for the Pens. He better show up to play tonight, he's had a few moments but has been outshined by the rookies Helm and Abdelkader

"So what am i doing differently tonight? Well, I made the mistake of giving that lousy yank Rafalski a break from his game time cup check; make no mistake about it, I've already given him a dozen since Tuesday's game."

 
2009-06-12 06:03:43 PM  
I am returned to Detroit and ready to head out to Game 7. C'mon Pens!
