Horse racing will only come on if there's OT. Just ask those poor Sabres fans who never even got a chance to see their team eliminated last year.

God that must have sucked terribly. I enjoy the NBC games, though. Nice national exposure, plus matinee games always have a different feel to them.

I was reffering to the stellar announcing during hockey games. I can't say that I've actually watched a whole horse race recently.

No.

Conspiracy theories are a waste of time.

Hey guys, they would never put a Stanley Cup Final game on the weekend during the afternoon, would they, just for NBC?

If both series finish in 5, game 5 of cup final is scheduled to be Sat. May 31st. That would be weird winning in 5 and celebrating during the afternoon, lol.

I'm pretty sure all games are 8PM EST during the Stanley Cup Finals. They are definitely all evening games, I know that much. It would judt flat out be too retarded to see someone win the cup in an afternoon game. It will probably never happen.

But you can guarantee that on Sunday Sidney Crosby will be shown in his entirety.

REALLY!?!?!?!
Oh, you mean the game.
Well, I had hope that there would be something to make up for Pierre, and that would have done it.

I'm looking forward to Saturday. Wings on TV! YES!

As far as the topic goes, I usually treat conspiracy theories with contempt, and this one is no exception. Although the officiating does make it a more interesting theory. FWIW, I've heard the same.
