Well this sucks: Bruins-Flyers in the Winter Classic. Ovechkin, Capitals absent.


Mannnnnnnnnnnn, I don’t know where to start with this one. For months, all the rumors around the league about the Winter Classic involved the Capitals facing the Bruins at Fenway. Nope, it’s gonna be Bruins-Flyers. I’m gonna sit this one out.

The NHL had been lobbying for the Capitals to play in this years edition of the winter classic but apparently NBC had other thoughts. From Fanhouse:

Despite springtime reports that the Flyers were out of the running as Boston’s foe in the next outdoor game, they recently were brought back into the discussion by NBC, which will broadcast the contest.

The NHL lobbied to pit the Washington Capitals against the Bruins in an effort to showcase Hart Trophy winner Alex Ovechkin and his exciting, young team.

However, sources say NBC trumped that decision, telling the NHL it wanted the Flyers instead of the Caps in order to draw a better television audience and increase advertising revenue.

I really feel stuck in Blue Balls Lagoon because the NHL just decided to get me almost all the way there before realizing they had to go jerk NBC off too.

So way to go NHL, you continue to fuck things up and you can’t control what teams play in what games. Good job. Does Versus push you around like that too?

    Wow, keep on cryin’ and we’ll keep on flyin’.

    I think it’s fair to be upset about this considering we have a rising team that will actually be able to close in the playoffs. We’re one of the youngest teams in the league and we aren’t going to be retiring to the old folks home any time soon.

    Other than that, thanks for commenting.
