Great Moments From, er, uh, NHL On SportsChannelAmerica?
December 2, 2008 Leave a comment
Your regular scheduled “Great Moments from The NHL On FOX” will not be seen this week. Instead, here’s some great footage from an even more maligned NHL television entity. We’re of course talking about the NHL’s four-year partnership with SportsChannelAmerica.
Wasn’t that trippy? A somewhat younger Doc, John Davidson (!), Bill Clement and Jiggs McDonald talk about the last time anyone cared about hockey in Chicago. There’s also that “Uh, Awkwarrrrrrd” feeling you get anytime a network’s contract with a league runs out. People are going to be fired, the sport will live on to a network – in the NHL’s case, ESPN – and they sort of have to talk about it, elephant in the room and all. Also, The NHL On SportsChannelAmerica theme: Kind of rocked, in a 90’s video game sort of way.
