Ok, maybe that doesn't come as much of a shock. But there's no other way to describe my disgust right now.
The Wings-Leafs game (yeah, the Leafs, or as I now realize, the Wings, are 0-1!) ended around 9:45 my time. Cool, that gives them fifteen minutes until the Avs opener, right? Wrong. Instead, I'm treated to a Def Leppard concert.
Not only does Def Leppard not pump me up for anything except a nice night falling asleep, but they're holding me (and you) from seeing opening faceoff of the 2008-2009 Colorado Avalanche season opener.
Why is it that America's hockey network isn't showing us hockey? Since when did a concert in Detroit come before a Boston-Colorado game? Why couldn't they have done the concert before the games started tonight? Why isn't the Versus Golf station (otherwise known as that random station on Digital Cable) showing us the game while the the regular Versus (otherwise known as that unknown station on regular cable) shows the fans, who are more into music than hockey, the concert?
If the league is still serious about marketing the game, maybe they better show us one from start to finish.
Apology: Versus did show us the opening faceoff after they got through with the abysmal concert, but the point is the same. Why waste 30 mintues with a concert when you could show us some hockey?
