Speaking Of VERSUS: VERSUS Actually Has a Day of Programming Worth Watching on Sunday

As VERSUS is the cable network devoted to the National Hockey League, we feel it is in every hockey fan’s best interest to know some of the non-NHL stuff that’s been going on at the network.  Every so often, we’ll update you on it with a segment called “Speaking of VERSUS”.

As we pointed out in the last few posts, VERSUS is making a day out of the All-Star Game, spotlighting all of it’s biggest events around the NHL’s Don’t Get Suspended Showdown.  Here’s VERSUS’ Sunday Schedule

4:30 Lance Armstrong: The Return
5:00 Tour Down Under –
Lance Armstrong competing in his first cycling tournament since his return.
6:00 NHL All-Star Game
9:00 Sports Soup
9:30 WEC –
The first big fight of the year, as Urijah Faber re-matches with Jens Pulver. 

Hopefully, VERSUS can get all the people who wanna watch these shows stick around for the entire night.  I’m not too optimistic, but we’ll see, since the last Faber-Pulver fight drew 1.4 Million viewers.

    Versus just finished airing the 2009 Dakar Rally from Argentina/Chile, incredible 2 week offroad rally. Two of the WEC’s from last season were in the top 10 of all MMA events of the year. Tour de France, Tour of California, Pac 10 football, contender boxing, contender kickboxing, NHL hockey, on and on.

    There is a lot of quality programming on Versus. A Farber-Pulver rematch is just the tip of the iceberg. Farber, a former U.C. Davis alumni, will win in a landslide by the way.
