Figured I'd come over and introduce myself. Spending a lot of time on Japers Rink, the Washington Capitals' SBN blog, we might as well say hi to each other, in case we see a lot of each other in June. But that's then, I'm looking towards the March 14 game when we come to town. Currently it's a 6pm game time, and at last check the flex games for NBC broadcast are:
Washington vs. Chicago
Philly vs. NY Rangers
Pittsburgh vs. Tampa Bay
I don't know about you guys, but I could really care less about seeing Carcillo beat the crap out of Gaborik again, and I'd prefer to eat a bug rather than seeing Tampa Bay on network TV. So that just leaves the 2nd and 3rd best teams in the league standings. Your guys and our guys, in two big TV markets on national TV. A game like that should be a no-brainer for NBC to pick up, but it's NBC, look at the headlines.
So that brings us to now. In all seriousness, what can we do to make sure NBC does the right thing here? Are there people to call/email, campaigns to start? What's the best or most effective thing to ensure that as many people see this game as possible?
