Hot diggity! We might not be getting a home feed (saaaad!) but we are getting Versus in HD tonight, so that’s okay, we guess. We are in a mad race against the clock to get dinner on the table (by “on the table” we mean “plated, in front of the TV”) before the game starts…
….aaaaand, mission accomplished! We hunker down with bowls of Cincinnati-style chili, ready for whatever this game has to throw at us. As long as it’s not a 4-goal first period for the Senators. Or a 2OT game in which the Devils led with under 27 seconds left in regulation.
We really don’t mind tonight’s broadcast pair; we enjoyed watching Carolina this year (well, as much as anyone could enjoy how their season went) thanks in large part to John Forslund, and as long as Eddie Olczyk isn’t saddled with Pierre McGuire he’s really not that bad. So, all things considered, being on VS tonight could have been a lot worse.
Oh dear God. After that closeup of Gomer, we’re sorry we’re getting this game in HD. And eating dinner.
19:47 Proving he doesn’t listen to us, Lou immediately pulls the Madden line off the ice to match the EGGs with Fisher’s line.
