According to a report in the Toronto Globe and Mail, the NHL and NBC will renew their deal through the 2010 Olympics, which of course are an NBC property.
On a lighter note, did you see the story about the South Dakota cowboy who won more than $200 million in the Powerball lottery? My favorite part was the quote from a guy named Chris Assman. He must have Cosmo Kramer’s plates (which actually belonged to Dr. Cooperman).
The winner selected the lump-sum payout, which after taxes is going to bring him only $88.5 million. So now he’s getting closer to Wade Redden money than CC Sabathia money.
