    Lancaster,...
    I have the Caps game in HD here in PA on 629, not that I am a Caps fan, but just glad D* provides this.

    Didn't the Caps play in San Francisco during the 60's-70's as The Seals?

    For the first time, a college game was blacked out in my area. Penn State/Iowa was on ESPN2 (HD) and it was blacked out in favor of ABC affiliate WNEP, in the SD version. Is there no recourse when the local HD channels are not available through directv? This seems to be a poor policy.

    No. The Caps were an expansion team in 1973 or 1974. I think the Seals Moved to Cleveland in th.e 70's and merged with Minnesota in the late 80's or early 90's. That's when San Jose came into the league

    Why somebody always gotta' do that?

    OK, glad I'm not watching football right now, I have enough silly meetings in my day. Too bad basektball isn't here yet, I can't wait to watch a giant drop a ball into a hoop 50 freaking times in a game! Baseball is still going on, right? Either that or the grass is still growing, can't decide which has more action.

    There, OK. Don't start with us hockey fans!

    In your opinion. I find it rather childish, personally.

    I thought the NHL went on strike.
    Are they playing again?

    It wasn't a strike. And obviously they are playing again.

    Geez...

    Yes. the Gunds, owners of the Seals, and then "merged" partners with owners of the North Stars, tried to bring the Stars back to the Bay Area, with no success. But a deal struck by the Gunds' with former Hartford Whalers owners created the ownership basis for what is now the Sharks.

    Guess what? Also an Islanders fan! Was at Nassau for 3 Cup Finals, including Bobby Nystrom's cup-winning goal over Philly ;)

    Connection: My father was the Seals first PR guy, and the GM at that time? Bill Torrey ;)

    Not a big hockey fan, or a lot of other sports but I do watch a game or two once in a while.. I have always found the blackout rules to be the single dumbest marketing idea ever.. Your stadium isn't full so you tick off every fan that might buy a ticket later by not letting them watch the rest of the season too.. Bright idea guys..


    p.s. back to nascar ;)

    I was there for several of the Finals too, but not any in 1980. You're lucky! A great moment! Are you a tax refugee too?

    You should be happy you're not in Chicago. The blackhawks don't show home games b/c they figure people won't come to see them live. Sr Wirtz just passed away so maybe this policy will change.
