“Heidi Bowl” Redux

"Heidi Bowl" Redux

Way to go NBC! Nothing like cutting away from an NHL Conference Final playoff game as it heads into overtime to go to a horse race. While it’s admirable you’re the only major network still televising the sport, who’s the moron that decided it was a good idea to have the second leg of the Triple Crown, The Preakness, scheduled 2 1/2 hours after the start of a potentially decisive Game 5 between the Buffalo Sabres and Ottowa Senators this past weekend? It’s not like every other hockey game in the playoffs doesn’t go to overtime or something. And sending viewers over to Versus (do all cable systems even carry it?) to finish the game is just lame. I guess it’s “viewer beware” if you plan on watching or setting the DVR for a Stanley Cup Final contest–better check the TV Guide for what’s up next that they’ll be cutting to, overtime be damned!
