Why NBC??? WHY Forsake Canada V USA????????

Kendall LewisContributor IFebruary 21, 2010

I must ask, how is figure skating more important than hockey? The USA v. Canada game will be forsaken for figure skating tomorrow night on NBC. I understand the ratings, but how does figure skating mean more ratings than hockey. It mystifies me.

The game will be shown on MSNBC, however it is unexplainable that they are placed on a second class cable network. Furthermore, it does nothing but further decline the USA's view of hockey. This is why the sport is on the down hill. This will only continue to dig a sport deeper in junk than  it is already in. It has become a last class sport that was once at the top of the food chain in the north. However, it has become a 15 second mention on SportsCenter. 

Shame on NBC for forgetting a a great game of Canada v USA.
