woot!  That was close!

HA!
the lighting isn't any worse than at MSG

Will there be a "Potvin Sucks!" chant?
 
2014-01-29 07:48:40 PM  

sno man: HA!
the lighting isn't any worse than at MSG


Or the ice I'd imagine.

Also 3 hockey threads in one day?  On my Fark?
 
2014-01-29 07:49:05 PM  
I hope they're done with the musical acts. Holy shiat they were bad.

/go Isles! I want fantasy points!
 
2014-01-29 07:51:41 PM  
Ah, there is going to be a thread tonight (wasn't one visible when I was off getting dinner ready)

Thoughts while fixing dinner:

The 'entertainment' looks like he has no clue what all those people are doing outside on a Wed night in January.  Or what those guys are doing out in the field.  Someone stepped on the baseball too...

Even the announcers don't seem to want to be there - we'll have to wait a bit to decide on the players themselves.

/who cares, it's HOCKEY

A-Rod will be serving soup between periods.

I was there on Sunday. I left the same time the Devils did ... midway through the second period.
 
2014-01-29 07:57:21 PM  
This has been sloppy as hell so far.
 
2014-01-29 07:58:05 PM  
Go Islanders, I guess...

I know it's an event and everything and exposure for the League, but man, who the hell would pay that kind of money to sit in the freezing cold that far away from the actual game?

Also, so freaking pissed I'm going to miss the Bruins/Habs game tomorrow as I'm teaching a night class on Thursdays this semester.

Bastards in the class better appreciate the sacrifices I'm making to drop some knowledge on them. : )

Work the game into the lesson plan.

So the thread's been live for  half an hour and no one's noticed thatSubby thinks the Isles are moving to the Bronx and not Brooklyn?
 
2014-01-29 08:14:24 PM  
Since I posted Saturday's Hockey Night in Canada opening montage in Sunday's thread, here's the full opening from Hockey Day in Canada.  Before the song starts there's 3 minutes of Ron and Don explaining why there's a town straddling the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan.  And Ron is wearing socks on his head for some reason starting at the 2:40 mark.

Aren't all NYC neighborhoods interchangeable anyway?

well, this game is certainly a stark contrast from the Sunday one so fa..

WHY CEE-LO?!

Man, Fark them.

They screw-up your lesson plan...make them pay.

I'm just glad my fisticuffs with Comcast paid off and I have NHL Network back in time for tomorrow's game.

The Yankees season is starting early this year huh? Funny looking infield but it is January.

Are the Isles moving to Brooklyn?  Well, are they...?
 
2014-01-29 08:52:12 PM  
Islanders got some serious pressure going.

Ice actually looks pretty good. And the lighting is way better than MSG.

Second week of a Photography I class... Bit early to be hitting them with a Sports Photography lesson. : )

Nah, I love it. So much fun to teach. I'll just keep the NESN box score up while I lecture.

For situations like that or any other reason that you (or anyone else for that matter...) miss a game, this guy has available for download the day after, EVERY game played the night before throughout the regular season & playoffs.  I've found it really good for when there's a game that everyone is talking about that I didn't see.  Instead of just seeing a couple minute clip on YouTube of whatever the big deal was I can watch the whole game & see the big deal develop & what it really is all about*

I never thought I'd see an outdoor hockey game day thread on Fark not reach at least 100 posts... tonight may be it though.  Man this game is bad.

/*yes, yes the hokey pokey but I'm talking hockey here....

Jeremy Roenick is either drunk every time he's on the air or just dumber than an especially stupid box of hammers.

One fall semester at college I had to take a class on Monday nights. It was the only time I could fit it in and I had to take it. By the time I got back to my apartment it was already halftime and my roommates were already deep into the beer. I feel your pain.

crazy idea: two outdoor games a year. winter classic and all-star game. who's with me?

Turns out the DVR wasn't set, because I'm an idiot. Back in time to watch fffffffarkin Carcillo stick de Haan in the corner, so I got that going for me.

/I like the toque look on goalies. Isles sweaters look sharp. Game looks choppy as hell, but outdoor hockey often is.

This game may end all outdoor games. Snore.
 
2014-01-29 09:12:37 PM  
I'd be ok with that.  This idea of 'flood the market with so many outdoor games at once that it loses all it's uniqueness' certainly isn't a good long term strategy.  With so many people in so many places finding out this year that sitting at home is much warmer & you can see the game MUCH better is going to keep many of them home next year.  Then add in the insane prices that I've heard for some tickets & you have a major disaster in the making.

/although it would be kind of funny listening to the talking heads explain why a stadium series game drew less people to it than a regular game at the arena

I HATE Carbomb, but he is responsible for the only noteworthy moment so far in this silliness.

Scroll up a couple of posts of mine if you want to watch the whole thing tomorrow.  Although after watching this tonight I wouldn't really recommend it...

/even though it is heresy to even think it, this Ducks fan is wondering if the SJ/EDM game would be better to watch in 15 min...

Sounds good, but I'd let the Canadians hold the Heritage Classic outdoors if they wanted to

GOAL!
AN ACTUAL GOAL!!
Isles up by one

All tied up!
Dam has broken. I hope.
