Too Many Games!

Posted 12:45 PM ET | Comments 4
This is why I don't get the Center Ice package. Too. Many. Games. Would I like to catch South Buffalo native Patrick Kane in a Chicago-SJ regular season tilt? Sure. Do I need to? Not really. With all 82 regular season Sabres games televised, Hockey Jesus Sid Crosby on Versus once a week, and the most important TV program in history, Hockey Night In Canada, on every Saturday on CBC, there are enough games for me to watch. Not to mention I'm not a big fan of flipping between 8 different games every 10 seconds. And I do on occasion like to do things other than watch hockey for 2-1/2 hours every night for 6 months straight (believe it or not I have a social life too.)

The regular season is one thing; but this is where I reach my major dilemma: The first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Maybe I should consider myself lucky, being in a hockey market on the US-Canadian border, and that Time Warner carries CBC here in Buffalo. Maybe I should be grateful that I can chose between Red Wings-Predators on Versus or Bruins-Canadians on CBC. But with 7 of the first 10 days of these playoffs featuring at least 1 time slot with 2 games on, I'm going to have to make some decisions. I tried going with the two TV setup last night, but inevitably all you end up with is catching the replay when someone scores. I really shouldn't complain; this isn't a bad thing. Unless I want to take a week off from work to watch DVR'd games, I'm going to have to live with it. But it’s not easy, when all this hockey is on and I have to pick which game I’m going to watch.

I wonder what Melrose would do?

Center Ice should be setup so that people can order individual games. Rogers Sportsnet airs like 50-60 Sens games a season but for the rest them, Im left in the dark. I dont want to pay 120 for all the games when I only want to watch 20 games. They need to make it so gou can buy individual games for like $2.50

Center Ice Online = Game archives. Watch when you want. It was absolutely a necessity to learn the league this year.

I don't understand. Too much hockey? Exercise some elf-control. My confusion knows no bounds... would you prefer them to show only one game every 24 hours? Is there some logical solution to this perplexing dilemma of yours? This is similar to eating at a Chinese buffet and then complaining because you can't possibly eat all the food they have out for you to eat. So confused.
