Covering The WJC

Brad Holland of NHL.com is working hard, covering the WJC in Prague!!!

A nice quiet New Years, with the people I love in a foreign country. Sounds nice, safe, and quiet, doesn’t it? I thought so.

A photo of our group, who braved the cold and the crowds in the Prague to take in the downtown fireworks, is on the group profile.

What I wasn’ prepared for was perhaps the most amazing, awe-inspiring, incredible disregard for public safety in my life. The result? Well, I can’t lie…

It was the best fireworks display I’d ever seen.

The Very Unique Mike Lange

from the National Post,

Canadians may not know his name, but they know his voice. They have been listening to it for decades accompanying highlights of the Pittsburgh Penguins, describing the action on the ice with non-sequiturs such as “scratch my back with a hacksaw,” and “buy Sam a drink - and get his dog one, too.”

Mike Lange does not always make sense. And it has taken years of practice.

Winter Classic On NBC Draws 2.4 Overnight Rating

via William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

NBC exceeded audience expectations for its coverage of the Buffalo outdoor game on New Year’s Day by earning a 2.4 overnight rating (percentage of the potential U.S. audience tuned in).

Sources said an American network has not produced an audience of that size for an NHL regular season game since the Fox Sports telecasts in the 1990s.

added 3:27pm, from NBC Universal Media Village,

NEW YORK – January 2, 2008 – The NHL Winter Classic, broadcast New Year’s Day on NBC, earned a 2.6 overnight rating and a 5 share (1-4:45 p.m. ET), the best overnight NHL regular season rating in more than a decade (Feb. 3, 1996 on Fox, six-game regional, 3.0/7).

How Did NBC & CBC Handle The Winter Classic

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

But for television, the outdoor game is a tough sell unless it’s framed brilliantly within the context of its surroundings.

In that respect, the CBC and NBC did fine jobs of bringing the enormousness of the spectacle into our homes.

Both networks conveyed the larger-than-life aspect of the game by giving us high overhead shots from an aircraft above the stadium as well as scenes in and around the game.

But the CBC should have given us more crowd shots. The mood and reaction of the spectators, after all, is a large part of the show.

Update 8:34pm ET: Reviews of the game all being added to this post, and game video available here.

The “Sorta” Award

I received a “SORTA MSM BLOGS” award from Greg Wyshynski at the Fourth Period. 

I would like to “Sorta” thank Greg for the mention.

Make sure the read the full article, some good stuff in there!!!  Even a mention of The Entertainer, Dwayne Klessel. 

On that subject, the more people that ask me about him, the more I learn about Dwayne.  How he continues to lie and deceive is just a shame, but one day, it will catch up with him.
