Are you going to watch the Winter Classic on CBC or NBC?

Assuming the Winter Classic does happen are you going to watch it on CBC or NBC? I'm going to watch it on NBC because I honestly can't stand hearing Jim Hughson, Craig Simpson and Glenn Healy bash the Leafs and I have this feeling Healy will make some stupid comment how the Leafs shouldn't have been selected to play in the Winter Classic based on their record the past few years. Plus I think it will be refreshing watching a Leafs game from a different prespective point of view from the NBC side and I also don't mind hearing Pierre McGuire.

I was pumped to watch this game, maybe even go and watch it live. But now my grandma is paying for the family to go a on cruise starting Dec 31. The sacrifices I make to spend time with my family.

Probably switch back and forth at first then NBC if the Leafs are winning and CBC if the Leafs are losing. Because I like when Americans have to announce Canadians winning and I'm used to the CBC bashing the Leafs when they are losing. It's almost like CBC has earned the rights to bash the Leafs, I don't want to hear American commentators bashing us unless it's about us smoking one of the Red Wings with a borderline legal check

Winter Classic? There's no hockey right now! If Gary Bettman has anything to do with it there won't be all year

Did you not read the part in the OP that says "assuming it does happen"?

Probably flip between the two, but CBC will be the primary.

Contrary to what seems to be the growing consensus, I still think CBC puts on the best show of all the sports networks in Canada. The US stations aren't even in the same ballpark when it comes to hockey.

Why would I watch American programming when I can support a Canadian broadcast? If you have the choice of paying for something made in China, or made in Canada, your obviously going to choose Canadian.

Not if the Chinese product is much better.

It's not in this case. CBC rocks. Just saying.

I have tickets to the game... but haven't booked a damn place yet thanks to the lockout. Thanks, Gary and Donald. Going to get ****ed out of this game, I know it.

Part of me wants hockey to start just AFTER the winter classic so that we can get it next year and still get 24/7.

That or for it to start a bit before so we still get the 24/7. Basically I just want the 24/7, the actual game is only decent.

I totally forgot about 24/7. Awwww thats the best part . I kinda hope it happens next season too then

If it were to happen, i'd watch it on cbc because I'd rather hear the leafs side of the story instead of the wings side.

NBC because there is no CBC down here. HBO for the road to the winter classic is my focus. I can't wait.

I have been keeping my subscription to HBO just for this and now????
Anyway re the game: I was planning to go. Was very pumped up for the experience. Now am disillusioned by the lockout and inability of both sides to even pretend they are trying to work something out. But if the game goes on as scheduled and I am not there, I would prefer to watch on CBC.

where's the "no because there's no season" option?

and

where's the "no because i refuse to watch the NHL ever again" option?



if i feel better about everything...possibly CBC.
