How About Some ‘Soup’ Before The Post Game Show?

via Pete Dougherty of the Times Union,

As if hockey fans didn’t have enough reasons to hate Versus, the network with the corny name gave them another tonight.

After the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 4-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Versus crew told viewers that they would be back in a half hour with “Hockey Central,” its postgame show.

A half hour? Why?Apparently the network savors its “Sports Soup” program so much that it’s willing to lose its hockey audience to air this week’s episode. Hockey fans were left looking for the NHL Network, which did provide postgame coverage.

NBC Seeing Great Ratings

From CBS Sports:

Television ratings for the Stanley Cup Finals are off to their best start since 2002.

NBC said Tuesday that Games 1 and 2 averaged a 2.8 rating and 5 share. That’s up 17 percent from last year, when the first games on the network were Games 3 and 4. Versus showed Games 1 and 2 in 2008; the cable channel is broadcasting Games 3 and 4 this year.

The ratings were the highest for the first two games on NBC or ABC since 2002, when the Detroit-Carolina series averaged a 3.4/7.

The Most Interesting Man In The Universe

from Steve Schrader of the Detroit Free Press,

Wearing a pink coat, Cherry arrived at the Joe flanked by two young ladies aboard a boat on the Detroit River and made his way through the fans outside the arena. Inside he got a hug and a kiss from “my songbird,” Karen Newman.

Budd Lynch, meanwhile, has been doing a taped voice-over: “His reputation is expanding faster than the galaxy. ... His blood smells like cologne. ... He often has awkward moments just because he likes them. ... He’s the most interesting man in the universe.”

The Non-Glamorous Life

My post today at NHL.com,

The glamorous life?

Ha!

How is this for a daily schedule during the Stanley Cup Final?

Wake up around 7 a.m. in a sweat, realizing the air-conditioning unit didn’t cool the room any lower than 75 degrees. Have a little breakfast and plan your day.
