So I played golf today with Thomas Steen, he of the Winnipeg Jets of the mid-80s to mid-90s. Also glad-handed with Toews and Brian Campbell - who I HAD to bug about his commercial for the Center for Excessive Sweating in his Buffalo days. (He was not amused, but who cares, he makes 7 mil a year, he could use some **** thrown at him)
Pretty cool day, and was nice to see the players giving their time for fan autographs and pictures.
Does anyone happen to know why 99.9 is the only station statewide to carry the Canes games? You'd think there would be a couple more to get a little more statewide coverage.
Low ratings probably. Charlotte once had an affiliate that also happened to carry Duke basketball/football and when the two played at the same time Duke always won. It would be nice to have more coverage but I think a lot of people find Hockey to be a sport too hard to follow on radio.
