Good times. Good times. Sure sucks here in Idaho, though, where they have NO clue what hockey it. Can't even catch a game on tv here.  :(


Oh, and GGOOOOOO

Weazletoe, check into a slingbox and a family member with cable or satellite. My neighbor, a Yankee fan, gets
most of his games in Denver via His Niece who get their local Yes network out east. Basically a streaming
video via internet thingamajig.

Slingbox, eh? Looks like I got some Googling to do.

Yup when you order it you have it shipped to the home with the cable. They hook it up, you log in and watch
TV on the Net...Hook up the new Boobtoob to a computer and viola...The Game!

My poor Senators are off to a horrible start  ???  but we're only 3 games into the season - I expect they'll turn it around soon.

GO SENS GO!

Browns fans and Leafs fans... I'm not throwing in the towel just yet.  I expect the Sens & Pens to tangle in the playoffs again this year...

Can't you get NHL Center Ice, Weaz?  :'(

I've had it before and didn't think I got my money's worth out of it, but I also live in a land where they shorten the 11 o'clock news so that they don't interfere with the hockey broadcast.  If I couldn't get any hockey, I would gladly pay the $170 for the whole season.

Can't watch on the cable... but if you have internet access, NHL.com has an internet package that is not too bad.  You can watch the any TV feed (except for the team in your local area and when the game is on NBC or Versus) live, and if you miss the game, ALL (even the local team) seem to be available to watch the next day. 

Even on DSL his feeds were pretty good.  (The quality of the Video depends on the bandwidth available...)

---That is what my brother tells me any way. 

I do know that last year I was over at his house three or four times during the playoffs and we would have the Wings on the TV, the computer playing 2 to 4 other games on monitors, I would bring the beer, and sometimes we even get in a game of pool! 

Sadly, he now has a woman in his life too, so the impromptu bachelor nights will not be a frequent this year...Sigh

GO WINGS!

WOW, your are in BFE BFE!!! 

OK, now to digress in to a little rant...

The Idaho Steelheads are part of the ECHL (East Coast Hockey League), along with the Alaska Aces.... (I think someone needs a geography lesson!)

Next year the Big 10 will have 12 teams...
The Big 12 will have 10 teams...

We drive on parkways and park on driveways...

Am I the only one who is confused by all this?

Yeah, where I used to love in Youngstown, Ohio, we had a CHL team. The Steelhounds. Man they were good! But, all the other teams in the league were from Texas and Mississippi. They got sick of having to make the trip up to Ohio for their away games, and gave the Hounds the boot. That was a sad day.  :(

I'm kinda glad you couldn't watch the Sens-Pens game last night Weaz.  :'(  What an embarrassment!  My Sens forgot to show up until the 3rd, when it was too late.

If you want Gonchar back, you can have him - & please take Kovalev (Float-alev) along with him.  It sucks when your best play is an injury prone (& currently injured), over priced goalie - I have no faith in Brian Elliot as a starting goalie.

Its gonna be a loooong season.

Actually, I did find a pretty good place online to watch, so I got to see a bit of it. Don't abandon ship just yet. We still got near 80 games to play. Welcometo tthe life of a Brown's fan!

Long season is an understatement.  Hockey players are some tough dudes by any measure.

GO SENS GO!

I haven't been to out to see the Sens for a long time now.  I need to ge tback out there.  Being from Detroit. "Lets Go Red Wings!"  Now living in Dallas "Boo Stars"  I can't wait until I can see the Wings play the Sens again.  The Highlander Pub has the best 80 schilling Scotish Ale.  Great place to visit.

Thanks for that!  I've been on the east coast and only get back to Ottawa once in a while to visit my folks (with my kids in tow).  I'll have to make a point of visiting the Highlander Pub next time I'm there.

What is this strange "Hockey" thing you speak of.

 We don't have such in the south.

Well, let's see, Nashville Predators, Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes, Atlanta Thrashers, Dallas Stars.....Shall I go on? And that's just NHL. AHL, and CHL are a whole other story.  ;D

I'm sure Tubercle will let the north and south be by-gones and watch the Carolinas' Hurricanes.

I know when I was working in Southern Indiana/Northern KY... and I wanted to watch the STANLY CUP... that was not on TV, so I hear what Tubercle is saying!!!  The teams may be there, but TV coverage is not what we Yankees enjoy!! 

Maybee if Hockey players only made left turns, the Southern States would be more interested! :D
Title: Re: Finally it is Hockey time again!
Post by: akr71 on October 22, 2010, 04:06:47 PM
Maybe if the NHL didn't try to force broadcasters into contract to nationally televised games and let regional stations carry regional games, there would be more hockey on TV in the US.

Seems to me that NBC only ever carries Rangers, Wings, Pens or Caps games.

Post by: tubercle on October 22, 2010, 05:16:07 PM
I just found out that there is hockey in the south!

There is a team in a neighboring city about 30 miles away. http://greenvilleroadwarriors.com/

 I told the lovely and talented Ms. Tubercle that we should check this out to see what all the excitement is about.
 
It's hard to imagine anything more exciting and fast paced as Atlanta Braves baseball but I was willing to give it a try. ;D

Then she says - "My boss has season tickets and he said we could use them any time we wanted for free" :o

If its free; Its for me.

 There may be a hockey game in Tubercle's future.

Do it man! You gotta go to a game. I have turned several people into hockey fans by taking them to a game. I love to watch it on tv, but hockey is one of the few sports that's better to watch in person. Go, have a great time, and the Weaze be there with you in spirit.

Who knows maybe tubercle may just buy some skates and play hockey himself. The only true way to enjoy hockey.
