Rocky Wirtz continues to win me over:
The Chicago Blackhawks and Comcast SportsNet have announced that Comcast SportsNet will televise their first home game of the season on Sunday, November 11 when the Blackhawks play host to the archrival Detroit Red Wings at 6:00 p.m.
The November 11 game will be the first in a series of home games to be broadcast live and in high-definition on Comcast SportsNet. The full schedule will be released next week with additional home games airing throughout the remainder of the 2007-2008 season.
It's great to see quick progress made between the Hawks and CSN. From what I have heard, the Hawks may show up to 10 home games or so this season, but we will find out for sure next week. Kudos to Rocky for making this happen and realizing that the old home TV policy just wasn't going to work any more.
