yes i hate that it is this way, but come on people don't be so naive. it's like electing the same guy every year and expecting some different.
But if they're going to show us at all, why not show us at home? That was my point. All the talk about how Nashville was such a surprise to everyone because of the energy and passion...and then they have the ability to show that and don't. We play 3 home games against the big market teams of Detroit and Chicago--why not opt for one of those instead of an away game in their barn? Everyone has seen United Center and Joe Louis Arena. Then hype it and people might tune in to see Detroit get razzed by those crazy people in Nashville, or see how loud it is when Toews gets leveled by Tootoo. Never underestimate the appeal of an underdog--if people know they're playing.
