Remote Control

18 Aug

The NHL TV schedules are out [link], and I’m going to have to get the NHL Network this season.  They have too many games I can’t miss.

NBC will air (potentially) seven Bruins games, six Penguins games, five Capitals and five Blachawks games, none before US Thanksgiving.  That’s not going to cut it for anyone without cable.  The good news is you can tune in to Versus on 10/10 to see Gator climb the glass after Stamkos when the Bolts play the Caps for my (and Mike Green’s) birthday.

What is the point of announcing the Winter Classic next week [link] if it’s on today’s TV schedule?  Not to mention that it’s on MONDAY, January 2 at 1 PM so as not to interfere with NFL schedules.  Or with my haircut appointment or the burning need to rearrange my spoons by how many swirls are on the handle.  Unless the NHL also announces they’ve gotten us all extra vacation days, I’ll be watching that on DVR.

Clearly not our husbands (we'd never marry Habs fans anyway).

    I am blessed (seriously, with what I’m about to tell you, it is true) to work for a cable provider in Canada, which means I get 50% off NHL Centre Ice. My hubby asked if it was really necessary to get it – at which point I gave him a rude look and laughed bitterly. Up to 40 games per week? Ummm….yes, PLEASE!

    Just 49 more days to go. We can do this, ladies!!

      I proudly pay $179 or whatever a year for Center Ice. And thanks to a cross-country move last season I paid for it 1.5 times. WORTH IT.

        My hubs and I have worked it out that I can have NHL Center Ice if he can have NBA league pass. A solid compromise if I do say so myself

          Ha! I was just checking out what Time Warner Cable was charging for Center Ice. Working this OT this weekend is worth it for seeing Hawks and Caps all the time! Yippee hockey!!
