Anybody else having problems with Detroit UPN (WKBD)? I can find it on a channel scan but the signal strength is so low I haven't been able to watch it properly for a few days now.

Have they reduced power?

Well, until they do... I watched the last three periods of the Wings game tonight... and I'm waaaaay out here. Don't know how the signal was this afternoon though. Maybe they had a brief problem?

Not when you go into overtime, which is what happened last night.

Actually they don't consider the regular season OT a period, since it is not a full 20 min period. So you did not get me!!

That is usually why they dont call a regular season OT a period, they usually call it "5 minutes of OT".

Okay. I guess all this discussion means everybody could receive it except me. Drat. I wonder what I've done now?

PTS, calm down dude. If I sit through that much of a game, I obviously know something about the game. Look... I'm from Michigan too :) Do you still have your birth skates? ;)

ManE , I was not that hyper about it, just joking around. When I saw your post, it sounded strange, the LAST 3 periods, so I did just make a comment. But I guess we both could be right!! As far as birth skates, no. But, pair of custom pro skates, costing some $600 originally that I got on a good deal. Since I play ALOT of hockey, could not pass up that deal. Really strange when you come across a pair of skates that are in quarter sizes, or one skate is 7 3/4 and the other is an 8.
You going to any of the playoff games? Have season tics, but geez, cannot afford them any more, have to sell them, just to keep my seats.

Tom - every time I see one of your posts , and your pic, you remind me of Barry Smith!!! I am sure you have heard that before!!

Ok hockey guys...

What is the deal with a "home and home" series? What happened to "home and away"? The name changed several years ago for no appearant reason. "Home and home" doesn't tell me squat! Which one is here and which is there? Just another thing I don't understand.

GO WINGS!

The only way I'll be at a playoff game is if my brother scores some tickets from work... not likely... then again he did score a ticket to The Masters this week... Hmmm... Yo Bro! :D

"Home and Home" makes more sense to me because, given my distance from The Joe (let alone any other stadium), I will be watching both games from home ;)
