So we just settled in for a few hours of Calgary hockey on Rogers Sportsnet west and BAM...the service went out. Apparently, the Flames haven't sold enough tickets and have blacked out the game. Now, if I COULD...I would buy tickets to said game and go to see it (well, maybe I would...but I can't so really it doesn't matter). But I am in OTTAWA...the only way I can see the team is on TELEVISION and when you black them out, we can't watch them. According to Rogers (oh yes, I called the cable company), it is a decision made by the Flames organization, not by the cable company (not the government...). So as I raise my middle finger in the general direction of Ken King and his cronies...I urge you to buy some tickets so that I can watch the game on TV.
Seriously...go now, buy a ticket...maybe they will change their minds and start broadcasting it.
