Watching the Brier in Ontario

For some unfathomable reason, TSN will be showing hockey instead of live curling from The Brier this evening in the Trono Maple Laughs broadcast area (They will show the curling via tape delay, starting at 10PM).

We discovered last week, however, that at least some satellite transmissions of TSN showed curling, and not the hockey game, during The Scott, and we are hoping the same thing will happen tonight with The Brier.

We have cable, not satellite in our home. But there are several sports bars in our area that have satellites. We will probably be searching out one that will show curling on at least one of their tvs. So we will be out, bar-hopping this evening.... 8-)

[and on the weekend, Ms. Eclectic and I will stack one tv on top of another so we can watch both The Brier semi-finals and finals on CBC, and the opening draws from the women's world championships on TSN. What joy!]

If you think it's bad tonight, wait until tomorrow when TSN is showing Detroit vs. Anaheim instead of the curling...

You're right, Marc, and the hockey game appears to be scheduled for the full network on TSN, which means we won't be able to go to a sports bar to watch curling live via satellite. 8-(

I'll probably follow it via Curlcast on the internet.
