Sam here checking in from Dixie. Just got word my best bet to watch Game 1 on an actual TV tomorrow night will be at that hockey hotbed known as the Augusta Hooters.

So there you have it, journalism at its finest: wings, beer, and scantily clad waitresses who will have to hear my musings on why the power play needs more traffic in front…

    SAM – that’s not to mention the fact that your golf budget allows you to travel to the greatest golf venue in the u.s. and one of the greatest sporting events each year.

    You got it made dude.

  2. Hey Sam –

    Don’t feel too bad. I will be in New Orleans for a business trip for games 5-7. I wont even be able to listen to it on the radio. My only hope is that I can order TSN or Versus or something from the hotel. :(

    And if you ask if I will be upset?..Well lets just say I have NEVER missed a playoff game..so as you can imagine, I hate my job right now..actually, ‘hate’ would be me being too nice..I LOATHE my job right now.

  3. Sam,

    Don’t feel bad. Last year I had to watch the stretch drive at a Hooters-like bar in Delray Beach, Fla. I had to beg the guy to put on Rangers – Islanders (the game where Shanny scored in OT), which he did. The TV screen seemed lost among the sea of Nascar posters on the wall. Anyway, I was with my buddy and in comes this 8 year old kid with his parents. He was searching all the TVs and when he came over to ours (ours meaning the one right in front of us on the wall) he goes, “Yes!!” Apparently the little buger was an Isles fan.

    Anyway the point is, be proud of being that diamond in the rough that is a hockey fanatic below the mason dixon. It’ll get you some attention.

  4. Sammy, maybe Long John Daly will pick up the tab for your wings and brews. I’m wagering, though, you don’t get out of Augusta until the second period Wednesday and the third period Friday.
    Have fun.

    Sam, I celebrated my birthday in 2001 at that Hooters…don’t drink too much like I did.

  6. haha Sam, don’t act like this isn’t the best news you’ve had since the rangers clinched. ^.^

  7. Sam,
    If you’re interested I can give you my slingbox ID and you can watch my tv on your PC. Email me if you’re interested.
