Wonderful news: the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) will be airing the first of three NCAA hockey playoff games this weekend beginning at 8:30 this evening, with the Midwest Regional’s second game between BU and Michigan State. Tomorrow MASN will cover the East Regional Final at 6:00 p.m. followed immediately by the Midwest Regional Final at 8:30.
All three games will air live.
As if that wasn’t good enough news for local hockey fans, USA Today this morning is reporting that recently departed but not really departed WRC sports anchor George Michael and his “SportsMachine” program will air for the final time this Sunday evening. Where will we go for our NASCAR and rodeo footage??? USA Today acknowledges Michael’s fetish for the sporting fringe in its lead:
“Before NASCAR and bull-riding became cool, Michael gave them national exposure even on his earliest shows.”
Michael, we are told, will be found covering NASCAR races for DirecTV this summer.
