    Gotta post to get the green arrow.

    Not that anyone cares, but you won't have to hear me ***** about not having BTN anymore. Just noticed I now get it. Maybe all the complaining to the company paid off.

    Thanks for starting this Grey Eagle. Hope another thread explosion doesn't occur with the JDUBBS and his haters.

    Can't wait for this season to begin.......

    Indeed he does bleed Maroon and Gold.

    Also I just noticed I still have the sports entertainment pack from Comcast (I must not have cancelled after the season) so I'm good to go for another College Hockey season.

    Then I would have been beetching about how long the drive was....Now I'll have to find something else to complain about (besides Scoobie being more pessimistic than I).

    I don't think it is the fact that he loves the team and the program that people complain about....

    I got a decent deal on a tv from a fellow Gopher fan (46" LCD, generic brand) which is now next to my 42" Plasma in my living room. AND have the sports package. I'm more than ready for hockey season.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I pay $160 a month for the highest tier cable package just so that I can get all the Gopher games here in Milwaukee. The cable company is r@ping me, but it beats missing Gopher hockey.

    I'm thinking of splurging on HD for the length of the season. See if it is worth the extra money. I have also often gotten the Sports package at NCAA time to see more games. Almost worth it for the season now, given that there are more channels showing college hockey. Although there were a couple times last year without the package where I had 4 games available at the same time. (And maybe even a Wild game on a couple of those occasions.) Sure is better than the not so distant past.

    I pay around 160/mo for cable/net/sports package, HD of course. However, and I think this still holds true, to get the 4 major sports network package (MLB, NFL, bouncyball, NHL), you have to have the sports package. Add in the FSNs, and the CBS Sports channels, etc, it's worth the 8~ per month for it. I think the highest number of college hockey games I have seen on air in one night was 6. That's really rare, though. Usually it's 3-4 (MN, UND home, BSU, and random).

    Sounds like the package I have. And you're right, it's well worth it.

    I have to admit, I was a little inspired by ShirtlessGuy (of Tech fame). A few years ago, he and bigblue_dl were roommates, and they had 4 tvs. Come NCAA playoff hockey? Yep, you guessed it: all 4 tvs they had were in the living room, all hooked up to the dish. I might have had something in my eye that day.

    It was insane, and awesome. And given how cheap tvs are nowadays, it's really a matter of space/want.

    Most importantly does it include the English Premier League?
    Slap Shot - 444 might want to consider a restraining order.
    dggoddard - Minnesota is THE ELITE Program in all of college hockey.
    wasmania - you have to be the very best to get ice time with the great gophers!
