My E-mail to NBC

Dear Mr. Topol,
I'm writing you about the NHL on NBC. I have been a hockey fan for some time now, and always look forward to watching the NHL on NBC however yesterday you really let me down. Switching right before OT to VS in game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals is a little bit ridiculous. I know you probably feel that horse racing comes before hockey but I'm from Kentucky and I don't even watch horse racing. Luckily, yesterday I was at home watching the game so I knew about the switch but many people were not able to either because they weren't home to hear about the switch or the fact that most people don't even have VS. I am one of the lucky hockey fans who have VS and Center Ice so I get just about every game. But, what you did yesterday was wrong. I run a hockey blog and there have been many people upset by this, I'm sure I'm not the first e-mail you have received. If you aren't going to show hockey to it's fullest extent please don't show it at all. If I'm watching the Stanley Cup Finals on NBC and there is a horse race or golf supposed to be on right after you need to let your viewers know that there will be a switch although I think it is ridiculous in the first place not to show the entire game. That's all I have to say.

Will I get a response? I doubt it...but at least someone knows I am angry now. I am also going to put up some articles about it.

Ya know...we could probably use this on The NHL Arena Program...there are a lot of angry people over this...believe me. When I found out I was taping the game...and all of a sudden there was horse racing...I was ticked.
