Canucks and Beyond

The Canucks broadcast schedule from the Vancouver Sun:
This year’s regular season TV schedule includes 45 broadcasts on Rogers Sportsnet Pacific, 25 games on national TV (CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada or TSN) and 12 games on Canucks TV Pay Per View. Canucks play-by-play broadcaster John Shorthouse will make his Sportsnet debut on Oct. 17 at Buffalo alongside analyst John Garrett and host Dan Murphy. A schedule of games available in High Definition will be announced at a later date.
Every game will be broadcast this season which is good news—but I still gotta pay for it. My note on last year’s expenses still stands:
So, in summary: I now get about 100 channels of television-annoyance, spend $1000+ dollars a season, all so I can experience ONE sports team traumatize me relentlessly for about 7 months of the year.
By the time I pick up Center Ice—for the added bonus of watching out-of-market teams that I hate playing awesome— I expect I’ll be filing for bankruptcy and eating Kraft Dinner to make it through the winter.
But heck, at least I won’t miss a game this year…
