Is it just me or is this so obvious someone should have thought of it?
I'm not sure NBC Sports can do it even if they wanted to since it's a player event and they partner with the league. ESPN 'could' do it, if they weren't already showing 500 college football games on its 500 channels.

I love the idea of the game itself and getting both Marty and Lundqvist involved. Wish AC wasn't 2 1/2 hours away or I'd go.
