NHL Hockey Games on Pay Per View


I have a been wishing and wishing that the cable companies and the NHL would team up and offer Pay Per View hockey games.


I constantly have to miss Toronto Maple Leafs games because I am in Vancouver and they RARELY ever broadcast them here.  I know I can buy NHL Center Ice, but I don’t want to watch ALL the teams and I don’t want to pay that price because I tend to miss many Leafs games just because of the time zone.


They should really offer NHL hockey games on a Pay Per View basis.  They have football and UFC buy why not hockey??? Its just not fair 🙁  Then they can charge like $10 a game and I’d buy so many games and I’m sure many other hockey fans would.


What do you think about that?  Leave your comments below.

Toronto Maple Leafs VS Vancouver Canucks 2010


So I attended the Toronto Maple Leafs game on Saturday, December 18th in Vancouver with my best friend.  The Leafs were playing against the Vancouver Canucks (obviously.)  I proudly wore my Beauchemin #22 jersey to the Sharks Club before and to the game.  I cheered my heart out, and voice (I lost my voice) for the Leafs, but they ended up loosing  4 to 1.


It is an amazing experience to go to a Toronto Maple Leafs game in Vancouver because the stadium is packed and the fans are even for both teams, if not more for Toronto.  The Vancouver Canucks fan are really mean to Leafs fans, they really hate Toronto.  I’m not sure why, never will, but that’s the first thing I learned when I moved to Vancouver.  I wish the Leafs came to Vancouver more often, but its only every few years since they switched the schedule a few years back.


I would pay any price I have to in order to get to a Leafs game in Vancouver.  This time my ticket only cost me $189 and I was 25 rows behind the net.  Last time I went in 2008 (that’s the last time the Leafs were in Vancouver) I paid $200 for the very last row in the arena.  I lucked out this year because I got in on the presale and I didn’t have to buy from someone on Craigslist.


I got a free Leafs hat from the fan beside me because he gave up on the Leafs.  I would NEVER do that. haha.  Even though the Leafs lost the game I still walked out of the arena with Beauchemin #22 on my back proud to be a fan! GO LEAFS GO!


By the way, I have the Beauchemin jersey just because we have the same last name and my brother plays in the Junior B, and they both wear #22.  He is not my necessarily favorite player hehe.

Who Is Don Cherry?

 

If you have ever watched an NHL hockey game on a Saturday night then you have probably seen Don Cherry. When it comes to stirring the pot, nobody does it quite like Don Cherry.

 

Don Cherry is known as the most flamboyant dressed and outspoken person in hockey. He supports fighting and the old school hockey ways. He has railed against French and European players. Don Cherry once attacked the Quebecois by saying “they don’t like the Canadian flag but they want our money, we bail them out. I’ve never seen such a bunch of whiners in my life.”

 

CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada hosts Don Cherry and Ron MacLean on Coach’s Corner every Saturday during the NHL hockey season. You can watch their segment during the first intermission of the first game that is broad casted.

 

Personally I love to watch Don Cherry, and I agree with many things he has to say. He is great entertainment and I wish he was on during all the intermissions. I’ve watched him my whole life growing up and still watch him on Hockey Night in Canada today. It just so happens that Coach’s Corner is usually broadcasted in the intermission of the Toronto Maple Leaf games, and those are the games that I never miss!
