Penguins fan since as long as I can remember. Love all sports but Hockey tops all else. Like to speak in sentence fragments.
Wow, Dish dropping popular programming? That has NEVER happened before!

It remains funny to watch Buccigross defend his employer, who neglects his favorite sport.
"Oh yeah! We'll have the highlights too!"
Just wait until the NBA comes back. I'm sure we'll see PLENTY of NHL highlights then.
5 months ago on Did Fox Sports Live really show more hockey than SportsCenter?
Oh no! Reruns of quite possibly the most overrated show on television aren't being shown in favor of a live sporting event! But screw baseball fans, because we all know yesterday's game was shown before and was available for purchase on DVD while those episodes of TBBT could only be seen live on TBS.Actually, wait a minute...

They built a show around Michelle Beadle. Damn right it was doomed from the start.
5 months, 1 week ago on The Crossover was doomed from the start
Beadle got big by standing next to Colin Cowherd and appearing to be the more reasonable one. It's a little odd that she makes a comment about "talentless hacks" when I never saw anything from her on her show with Briggs or solo that indicated she was the breakout talent that many sports media writers claim she is.
Mostly, all I saw is just "Oh hey guise! I watch wrestling and I'm snarky and stuff! I'm not like Erin Andrews and those other female sports broadcasters!" She sure isn't.

Dish Network are tremendous cheapskates. They seemingly get into carriage disputes with EVERYBODY. If they want to try and be the only provider without the ESPN networks as well as the Disney Channel, ABC Family, and in some cases the local ABC affiliate, go ahead.
It won't end well for you, Dish. Without those channels, you're going to successfully piss off most men, women, teens, and kids. You'd best pay up.

Most body heat escapes through the head. Pictured above: Bob Ley not giving a single crap about that fact, because he's too busy being exceptionally good at his job.

You mention the NBA being a virtual lock for ESPN. I would agree, and this means that Fox is going to have to throw an absolutely obscene amount of money at the league and blow ESPN's bid out of the water. IF they somehow do that, then this battle is going to get incredibly interesting. (Getting Turner's half of the deal instead wouldn't have nearly the same impact.)
It's not entirely out of the question. Fox's NFL bid in 1994 was huge at the time and prior to that nobody thought they'd get it. I'm sure CBS was a "virtual lock" to renew there as well.
6 months, 3 weeks ago on The State of ESPN
Buccigross comes off a bit whipped to me. He's a HUGE hockey fan, and yet continues to defend (and re-sign to work at) a network that could not give a single crap about his favorite sport. Wouldn't surprise me if FS1 gave the NHL more coverage than ESPN, since Fox has a stake in many of the RSNs that televise teams locally.

I have a strong feeling that I won't be voting against Vin Scully throughout this entire tournament.

Fox Sports Live will be what reverses the trend, so long as they let Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole do what they did at TSN. I think that they will. Fox Sports 1 has a strong enough live sports lineup that they can afford to wait for people to find Fox Sports Live.
If they let Charissa Thompson and some of the other hires handle the news and analysis sections and let Onrait and O'Toole do the highlights with the occasional dig at some of the sports topics that have been sensationalized (they did this brilliantly on SportsCentre when LeBron first went to the Heat), then Fox Sports Live will be a must see for sports fans.

An underrated British show is Black Books. Co-Created by Graham Linehan, who also did IT Crowd, and starring Dylan Moran, best known as that douchey guy who complains a lot from Shaun of the Dead. It's on Netflix.

Hartnell looks like the bad guy from Dirty Harry.
And here's your soff call.
Let's all take a moment to laugh and realize that the goalie the Flyers are trusting to get them far in the playoffs let up THAT goal.
T FUCKING K!!!!
2PaekShakur He's saving his losing for the playoffs. He's all about timeliness.
OlTwoNiner It must be.....SCIENCE!
2 years, 11 months ago on FIRST PERIOD: Flyers/Pens, Things heated already | TPB
Score may be tied but we outplayed them. The only way they can score against us lately is in the most flukey ways. Next Flyer goal is going in off of Laviolette's head.
