So what happens when the USA and Russia have two different hockey games at the same time? An uncomfirmed source deep in the liberal bowels of Comcrap/NBC said that mayhem insued when MSNBC and NBC Sports Network officials met with other Comcrap officials to schedule today's olympic programming.
MSNBC primetime hosts were meeting in a conference room, adjacent to the sport sports programming conference room, discussing their daily talking points from the DNC. Ed Shultz was first to hear arguing network sports executives. It was clear that sports executives wanted to bury live coverage of the Russian game on the under subscribed NBC Sports Network. Shultz rallied, Chris Mathews, Al Sharpton, pajama boy Chris Hayes and Rachael Maddow into battle and burst into the sports scheduling meeting. Sharpton immediately made charges of racism, as the Russian team was much more racially diverse than Team USA. After words were exchange, Shultz apparently sat on a Comcrap executive as Chris Mathews became excited and a puddle appeared by his shoe. Cooler heads prevailed when Maddow said that it was important to the MSNBC brand to carry the Russian game and that the MSNBC logo should appear at the bottom of the screen throughout the broadcast.
Comcrap and NBC executives made to programming decision to put the Russian game in MSNBC. Chris Hayes was overheard saying, "Now let's all get a cup of hot chocolate".
The US game is on NBC Sports Network.
I won’t watch this one marxist world love feet known as the Olympics.
Pitchers and catchers have already reported. All American Sport starts in April.
Plus... Our national pastime is shooting and always will be. ...keep your powder dry.
I’d be willing to bet that every member of the Russian Hockey Team is a better Capitalist than any host on MSNBC.
USA-Russia Men’s Hockey Saturday.
I watched the Russian game online. Good game for Slovenia in their first Olympics. They gave the Russians a run for their money after getting over a rocky start and were able to settle their nerves down.
But,our curling teams suck!
Men don’t watch the ladies curling team because they’re interested in “curling.”
