I just noticed this now...

I understand that it is American Thanksgiving, but this is really bothering me. I have a PVR but find it almost impossible to go a few hours without somehow finding out the score. Pretty much impossible.

Without looking I would bet that there will be several sporting events that will get a much better rating then hockey.

For once, being living in the States (and EST) actually helps me be an Oilers fan. This is the day I've been waiting for...

9pm start for me, one of 8 games where puck drop isn't after midnight this season. I think the others are all weekend games.

I'm on the ice at puck drop. Hoping I can avoid conversations of parents picking up kids and drive home with music on so I can watch a PVR'ed hockey game without knowing the result. *crosses fingers

It sucks, I'll watch it at work, but it's the way things go on a US holiday weekend.

There has been stupid ones lately. Like the Nucks playing on Sunday right after the CFL game. Not sure why they schedule Canadian teams on Sunday's during the CFL playoffs.

My other issue is why the hell did sportsnet west pick up this game? Seems like it should be a game that should be on sportsnet one.

It's nice that my office has WiFi and my bosses are cool. I'll just watch it on my playbook while I work. I do feel for those not in such a sweet situation though.

But hey, for those that will miss it, at least it's Minnie in Minne so it'll be slow and we'll lose.
