and that's why it's going to be tough to beat the NBA ever.
for the amount of viewers the nba gets, they really are not doing that good, or that maybe hockey is just doing so good
UNO has a good college hockey program. The old UND coach. They have excellent attendance as well. Just......not many people living there!
