About time! Missed all of you!

It's been good to be back on the ice as an old timer, behind the bench for my son's Atom A team, and now I get to watch hockey from my living room again!

About time!

My descent into madness doesn't start until tommorow.  The only prediction I'll make is whoever makes the playoffs in the Atlantic will be the toughest outs in the playoffs.  I also wouldn't be shocked if 5 of them made it.

I might have cursed the rangers tonight. I took my home jersey to the tailor because I want the letters of the name plate to be sewn on.

I'm nervous about dropping it off now. Lol

I would be very happy to see 5 Atlantic teams make the playoffs, because 5th in the division is the highest I think my Wings have some kind of reasonable chance of finishing.

I'm thinking 4th is the ultimate ceiling, but 5th or even 6th (if we get chewed up by the damned injury bug) is certainly possible. Bruins are going to fall off a bit and leave that spot open. It'll be fun down the stretch for sure.

For those who did not see the opening games in Prague between San Jose and Nashville, we now have virtual ad boards. So get used to them.

It'll be interesting to see what Buffalo and Ottawa are this season.  And what the Red Wings' goaltending and defense end up doing after all of the offseason moves.

The Lions had the best offense and worst defense in the NFL going into the game against the Patriots (the part about the offense probably isn't true post-Patriots), I live in hope for the Red Wings, I took a nice hike after work, and I'm about to crack open a Bell's Double Two Hearted.  How are you doing?

I would pay $100 to see behind-the-scenes footage of when they told that poor referee that he had to make a speech before he could drop the puck.

/I said in response that it's not a first. I'm pretty sure Wes had to do that last year or the year before

Just noticed them.  Rangers boards were showing a big Geico ad, yet in the replay, it was something else.

Good to see this band of reprobates, degenerates, rustlers, cut-throats and swindlers are back for another season!

Meh, I'm hanging in there. I popped out tonight to grab a chicken Philly and have a couple of drinks to watch the game. Then go home to finish the game and do laundry. Exciting.

Looks a bit weird in that you don't really see the individual boards, but it's not that bad so far.

There was an beer ad that had motion in it, very distracting.

Yeah, I was hating the motion in the ads last week for the Sharks-Perds games.

Also when one camera shows the regular board ads and then it cuts to the wide angle and the digital ads, that's a bit jarring

/No sir, I don't like it

All CGI. And it's only on the main camera. Other cameras will still show the ads on the boards that people in the arena see.

Wait until someone figures out how to green-screen the adds onto the uniforms.
Or better: someone figures out how to customize the home viewer's ads based on their browser history.
 
2022-10-11 8:15:07 PM  
While I reluctantly admit to understanding why these motion ads came to be, don't they distract the players?  Hell, I'm watching television whilst drinking Bell's Oberon (Cheers Polish) and they irritate me.
