Kukla's Korner Hockey
from Mike at Dump and Chase,
The line between rumors and lies is becoming blurred in rapid fashion. Not sure whether the bigger wingnut is the one making the stuff up or the ones who regularly visit to read it.
Make sure to check out Mike’s profile if you don’t know who he is.
from Peter King at Sports Illustrated,
I did, however, care about the New Year’s Day hockey game in Buffalo. Fantastic visuals, fun event, tremendous game capped by the best player in hockey scoring the winning goal in the last round of a shootout, with 71,000 riveted fans in the stadium. This was the best new sports-event idea I’ve seen in years, and I don’t say that because I draw a paycheck from NBC.

Of interest to DTV viewers in Canadian border areas (Detroit, Seattle, Buffalo, etc.), here is recent info from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) regarding their future plans for OTA (over the air) Digital TV.
My question: When will (CBC Affilate) CBET begin Digital TV over-the-air in Windsor (ONT)?
CBC Answer: We appreciate your interest in CBC Television. CBC is currently broadcasting in over the air high definition in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver. Beyond that, no further decisions have been made regarding further expansion as yet, since funding for such projects is not currently in place.
