NBC Continues to Think Seal and Hockey Have Compatible Fan-bases

That strange looking gentleman sitting next to Heidi Klum is her husband, soul/R&B singer Seal.  His music is fairly popular, and has had a recent resurgence due to his marriage with Klum.  Such a resurgence that, last year, his music was put into a figure skating special, “The Music of Seal on Ice”.  You might remember it, because Doc Emrick had to plug it as airing after the Winter Classic in Buffalo.  Well, January 1st is rolling around again pretty soon, and what has NBC put on the schedule?

1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. 
NHL WINTER CLASSIC: Detroit Red Wings vs. Chicago Blackhawks (live) 
Commentators: TBA 
Site: Wrigley Field, Chicago, IL 
* Available in High Definition 
4 p.m. – 6 p.m. 
NBC SKATING SPECIAL: The Music of Seal on Ice (re-air) 
Commentators: TBA 
Site: TBA 

Ah, it’s great to have fantastic broadcast partners like NBC and VERSUS, eh?  What’s next, the music of Brooks & Dunn on Ice?  Oh well, we have more Winter Classic stuff coming up in December.  The Tournament of Announcers post will be delayed till 7 tonight.

    Makes sense. I mean, I know when I think of New Year’s Day, I think of the dulcet tones of Seal and the promise of the coming year.

    I like Seal’s song. He is very talented.
