Anyone want to join me in a class action against TSN for mental anguish ???
I had a hellish drive last night in the snow back to Montreal (over 3 hours for a 2 hour drive and I had several moments when I was SURE I was heading for the ditch). I was so looking forward to getting home and watching the second half of the Wesminister Kennel Club Dog Show. And what do I find ???? The dog show has been pre-empted for a "wake" for the official cancellation of hockey season. CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT !!!! :mad: :mad:
I love to watch Westminister, to see all the less popular breeds. I always learn something new every year when I watch that dog show. Growls to TSN for toying with my affections.

Find a lawyer from the US to represent you... :D

That is so true they say that there are more frivolous law suits in the US than any other country.
I actually thought it was great news that hockey was cancelled for this year.

I'm in! Can we "get" Sports illustrated too for that dreaded Swimsuit Edition :D

That's all we're going to hear for weeks to come "hockey's cancelled". I, for one, am happy! Those big galutes make too much money to begin with, they cry like babies when they're threatened with a salary cap and a wage rollback, yet they go overseas and take someone else's job for a pittence of a wage. They'll get no sympathy from me! What???? 1.8 MILLION US isn't enough???? Poor babies!!!
I too was upset that WKC Show was pre-empted. I love watching the different breeds. Sign me up!

Of course, it had to be the night with the goldens (sporting group) that was cancelled too :mad: :mad:
No one tell me who won. Hopefully, TSN will run the second night soon. If not, I may have to break down and buy the DVD. WKC party at my house !!! :party: :party:
Ok, hockey is cancelled. We get the message, but THREE HOURS !!!! to get the message across ???? :confused: :confused:

Yep, a lawyer from the US would help. I doubt a Canadian lawyer would want to go up against hockey!!!
I come from a "hockey family" so I was chagrined to see hockey cancelled but I do not understand why TSN had to invade the dog show. The press conference was on CBC Newsworld and CTV News' channel. I do imagine though that their own market research shows their typical viewers to be male hockey afficinados!!

Speaking of Westminster, Tux, the JRT that won Best of Breed, is from my city, Modesto! Have to brag since Modesto has gotten horrible press because of Scott Peterson and Gary Condit. OK, I'll return this thread to Hockey! :D

I don't miss hockey. Hubby now has to talk to me on Saturday nights. :D
Watched the WKC dog show (except for the toy breeds) in Panama. LOVED the bloodhound and GSD.
Yup, still don't miss hockey.

I guess I sort of hoped that they would have some how worked it out and had hockey start a reduced season. However after Lemieux and Gretzky made that last ditch effort it was realized that it wouldnt happen. Anyway the WKC was great since the best in show is the dog I wanted to win

Dont' tell me who won WKC. TSN is running it in a couple of weeks and I don"t want to ruin the anticipation

It wasn't either of my favourites.

I don't freaking believe my luck. Westminister was shown on Animal Planet this past Sunday and the dogs I was babysitting carried on so barking and growling at the dogs on TV that I had to change the channel.
I was just not meant to see this year's show I guess :sad: :mad:
It would have been very hard to watch the golden anyways having lost my golden boy the day before, but still.......... having the dogs control the remote is a bit much :crazy: :crazy:
March 29th, 2005, 07:44 PM
Im still in shock over that... anyway the show was really good, sorry you missed it. The Golden was amazing won 4 place in group, I think it should of won and not only because I love goldens it was perfect. :thumbs up
