All Carrie Milbank

from Dave McBrayer of Barry Melrose Rocks,

BMR:  Pick one: Ed Olczyk or Barry Melrose?

Carrie: Eddie O with Barry’s mullet…yummy.

BMR:  You just gave us a very disturbing mental image with that last answer.  Clearly, you don’t mind blogs since you’re talking to us and have dabbled in some of your own. What are your thoughts on blogging and where sports media is headed?

Carrie: I loooooove bloggers, and it seems that the Internet is quickly becoming our main source for news and entertainment so get comfy boys…I don’t think you’ll be unemployed anytime soon.

A Shot At Cox, Then A Shot Back

from Damien Cox of The Spin at the Toronto Star,

Got blasted by Don Cherry on Coach’s Corner on Saturday night for having an “agenda” to get fighting out of hockey.

Guilty. If they put that on my tombstone, I’ll be okay with that.

Don’t get me wrong. Grapes may not like me, but I like him fine. Have suggested several times he belongs in the broadcaster’s wing of the Hockey Hall of Fame, so I think I’m on the record as having respect for his accomplishments as a broadcaster. As a junior coach, not so much.

All I can say is I haven’t made a dime off pushing the notion that fighting has no place in hockey.

more, including a youtube of Coach’s Corner and additional hockey topics discussed, one which is the Brian Burke parody Twitter.

Trouble With Cable Providers

From Craig Custance at the Sporting News:

By moving the game to the NHL Network, in an attempt to give it more exposure, the league shut out a large number of Center Ice subscribers. Up until last week, I had DirecTV, which includes the NHL Network as part of its digital package. I learned, apparently along with a lot of fans, that Comcast doesn’t include the NHL Network in its basic digital package - even if you ponied up the bucks for Center Ice. Now, I need to get the NHL Network anyways, so I didn’t mind calling Comcast and bumping up a package for another $8 a month. But by the time we got it ironed out, it was 2-0 New Jersey.

Like a lot of hockey fans, I was part angry, part confused. So this morning, I called the league for an explanation.

It was explained to me that putting the game on NHL Network made the game like any other nationally televised hockey game, which means it wasn’t available on Center Ice. Usually that’s not an issue, because you can just turn on NBC or Versus and watch it. But for those of us who didn’t get NHL Network, it became an issue. But the league assured me that it wasn’t some underhanded tactic to get people to pay more money for extra cable coverage. In fact, it’s the opposite.

Tweet-Up the NHL

Thanks to @hockeycardshow (site: The Hockey Card Show) and @nhldigest (site: NHL Digest), we came across this nifty little application for Twitter users. NHL Game Tag.

NHL GameTag helps fans find other fans through Twitter. By simply tweeting #nhlgametag along with the home team abbreviation (SJS, DET, COL, etc) NHL GameTag will collect the tweets and group them together by arena.

Fans inside the arena will be able to communicate about the game and meet other fans. Others outside the arena will be able to get information and a sense of what’s happening in a unique way not possible by just watching on TV.

Go here to check it out, and here for an explanation on how it works.  Great idea!
