so… the nhl playoffs start tonight.
you can see how important espn thinks this is. there is not one story about the playoffs visible in the prime real estate. phil mickelson playing a par-freaking-three event with his kids is bigger news. that’s awesome.
bettman’s done a hell of a job raising awareness of the game there.
it’s so pathetic it’s funny, really.
One thought on “the nhl is important in the usa”
If ESPN actually carried hockey, then there might have been a peep about it, but simply put, ESPN has Masters coverage on its network, and they MUST promote some sort of rivalry to stir more interest. Enter lefty.
