I don't understand it. I tried to watch the game on ESPN and DirecTV told me it was blacked out. That doesn't make any sense. It was a sold-out game. I think I am out of the effected black-out area (more than 60 miles away from San Jose), and friends in Tracy (one city closer) and Ripon (one city farthur away) both were watching it. My friends are on AT&T cable and Dish Network.


Any idea why it would have been blacked out? I called DirecTV and talked to a doofus of a customer service rep. He told me that it was blacked-out. I said yeah, I see that, but why? My friends get it in other towns.... His best response was that maybe the other cable companies bought the rights to the game and they have to respect that. That was bogus.


I hope I can watch the last game of the series, and the next if they keep going...

it was blacked out because it was on Channel 36 even though the programming guide said something else.do you get 36 as a local channel?

that's pretty normal when a local station carries it

game 7 is on fox sports network

GO sharks and on to Detroit where it will be 1994 all over again

CHOMP CHOMP!

I do not get channel 36 in my local package. I know they do in Tracy on cable, but I don't know about my friend in Ripon on Dish.


Good, I will be able to watch tonight!!


Go Sharks!

No repeat on the '94 playoffs...better luck nexy year.


The Colorado match-up certainly looks good, I hope it isn't another bloodbath like it was in the past.


Which reminds me of this old joke:

A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is a Colorado Avalanche fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they are Avalanche fans too.

Not really knowing what an Avalanche fan is, but wanting to be liked by their teacher, their hands fly into the air. There is, however, one exception. A little girl has not gone along with the crowd.

The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different.

“Because I’m not an Avalanche fan,†she retorts.

“Then,†asks her teacher, “what are you?â€

“I’m a proud Detroit Red Wings Fan,†boasts the little girl. The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks the little girl why she is a Wings fan.

“Well, my Dad and Mom are Wings fans, so I’m a Wings fan too,†she responds.

The teacher is now angry. “That’s no reason,†she says loudly. “What if your Mom was a moron and your Dad was an idiot. What would you be then?â€

“Oh,†says the little girl. “Well, then I’d be an Avalanche fan.â€
