First they strike in 1995, killing whatever momentum they had attained at the expense of a Jordan-less NBA.  Then, they lose the ESPN Contract (which aired great games) to a hard to find station known as VS. 
Now, they are playing the first outdoor game in however long on the BIGGEST SINGLE DAY OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL.  I had no idea that this game was set for today.

Would it have been asking too much to have this game on another day where people will most likely watch it?

Shoulda been Christmas Day, not New Year's.  BTW, they're doing this every year now.

Atrocious game that took forever because of the weather (took over an hour longer than the average game). Other than nice visuals, it was a total fiasco.

I'll watch the local team (Flyers) on the local cable station (Comcastsportsnet) but I never have interest in the national broadcasts, you know when Carolina is playing Minnesota, etc

Today I sought out the "Ice Bowl" ~ and never found it. Now how screwed up is that? The casual fan has to "work" to find the game.

Well you know, that NBC is an awfully hard station to find. They promoed the game on SNF for the last few weeks.

I live in a place where hockey is something from another planet and I knew it was being played.

LOL - I started on my remote control around channel 29 and quit at channel 200. The whole thought of it actually being on NBC never crossed my mind.
