One Last Thought.....

...regarding the Stanley Cup. I would like to point out that it is now two hours after Anaheim took the cup and no where in the top 10 stories on Reuters or AP (Associated Press) is there a mention of the NHL FINAL GAME!!!!

I have to point out that the #3 headline of ten reads:

Bob Barker takes final bow on "The Price Is Right"
: Barker, 83, took the stage to a shower of confetti and a standing ovation but quickly got down to business conducting his usual assortment of contests and prize giveaways, culminating in a final "Showcase Showdown." Only at the end of taping did Barker finally acknowledge his retirement.

Though the end of an era in game show history, this is another indication of how the American media doesn't give a rat's ass about hockey in general. The NY Times might include something next to the weather tomorrow morning, somewhere wedged behind lacrosse and the Ozone Park, Queens pin-bowling league. The Dark Ranger does not believe this is representative of the level of hockey fans supporting the game.

If I had a nickel for every blonde-host Bob Barker.....vs. a nickel for every NYTimes hockey story? Sad truth.

Any offer of 'tickets at cost' is exactly that -- I have season tickets and will sell them for what I paid --- so no mark-ups.
