Is this good or bad?

The USA-Canada game on Sunday night is going to be on MSNBC, not NBC.

I guess its a bad thing if you only have the basic channels, Figure skating will be the main event on NBC.

I hope miller is getting fitted for a neck brace today because he might need to stand on his head tomorrow night to beat Canada. GO U.S.A!

If you are interested and are a hockey fan....who cares. As long as you are able to get MSNBC....it doesn't matter to me. It only affects people who don't buy cable or satellite tv. I am sure that USA Hockey and the NHL would prefer it to be on NBC so that the sport would catch the casual sports fan. But, it is all about ratings, and they figure there ae more people interested in Bob Costas and company talking about human interest stories, like how someone broke their leg 10 years ago and now they are trying to compete for 10th place in curling......

The hockey fan will find a way to watch the game no matter what channel it is on. Period.

It's frustrating that the United States media will never embrace hockey.

They used to say the same thing about Nascar.

If USA wins, I am sure they will find a way to fit it in the coverage...

The problem for me who is an HD snob is that MSNBC is not offered in HD so the quality is not as good.

Congrats to Canada and Hayley Wickenheiser who became the all time leading goal scorer in womens hockey in the olympics! Hayley is the cousin of former Komet Doug wickenheiser and Claude Wickenheiser who did the color commentating on our upcoming broadcast Wednesday night on the Game of the Week!

Today has been awesome. How about the Russia Vs. Czech Republic game? Think Ovechkin wasn't playing inspired hockey. Then I watched the tribute special to 1980 Team USA and now it's tme for USA vs. Canada. No better way to spend a bed ridden day.

GOAL .... USA scores 41 seconds in!!!!

GOAL .... Rafalski scores 41 seconds in on deflection off Crosby's stick.

USA 1 - Canada 0

How about turning down the white-balance NBC so we don't have to squint at the screen to see what's going on.

Five Minute Major

USA! USA! USA! Did I hear that right? Two goals on six shots? Wow... :) The game is on but I'm doing other stuff while listening so I might have missed something.

That was damn-good first period, FMM. Rafalski scored in the first minute then again later just seconds after Canada tied it up. 2-1 after one.

It's been a great first period.
