Not for me - I care a LOT more about hockey than I do about football
. I watched all but 1 Bruins game this year and no football at all (not even the Super Bowl). I'm pretty sure that hockey fans are just as passionate as football fans, there just aren't as many of us. If they had continued coverage during the game itself, I would have been pretty ticked off, but I've got enough compassion for those who lost their lives, homes, businesses, etc. that I can live with missing the intermission reports.
An occasional banner telling people to go to channel 56 for storm coverage would have been nice so we could have seen the full game broadcast, but after seeing the game, I really didn't need analysts to tell me what I just saw anyway
. The only thing of substance we seemed to miss was a summary of the penalties that were assessed for the scuffle (and biting incident) that happened at the end of the 1st period.
