It's a 2-minute race. I didn't even want the three hours of pregame they were giving me to start with. The whole thing could be covered in a half-hour. And only deserves a half-hour.

insano: soopey: Rangers vs Capitals on Saturday at 12:30 ET. Ugly people in ugly hats coverage starts at 4 PM. Just one OT with with a reasonable game length of 3:20 is cutting it close. I'm hoping for quadruple overtime just to piss off the horse dancing people.

Given NBC's history, the horse dancing people will win that coverage battle.


It is simple people.... the Kentucky Derby has gotten 15 million viewers the past few years.   The highest rated NHL game EVER was the Game 6 of the 2010 finals (Big market Chicago vs. Phily) with 9-10 million viewers, and these earlier round games the derby will be after generally get only 3-4 million viewers, if that.

I know, you love hockey, hate horses.  Unfortunately, the rest of the world doesn't agree with you.... thems are the breaks.  TV is a business.

Came here to make a horrible SJP joke. I see I am not needed after all.

However, if the race is Saturday, and by definition, Saturday Night Live is...well, Saturday Night, and Live...won't they be promoting something that already happened?
