I am hard-put to name my favorite sport. There are things I love about football and baseball and college basketball, and it seems impossible to put them all on one linear scale and say which one is the winner. But if it’s a question of which is my favorite sport to watch in person, at the arena, then the answer is easy – hockey! Heck, I even enjoy listening to it on the radio. In that regard, I have become a regular visitor to nhl.com. Unlike the other major sports, which mostly sell radio or TV broadcasts in season-long packages, one can pick up the live radio feed for any NHL game through their web site, free of charge. This has enabled me to listen to quite a few Red Wing and Blackhawk games this season while I was at work, and I expect to make liberal use of this capability during the playoffs as well. In fact, I listened tonight to the entire Pittsburgh-Ottawa playoff game through nhl.com.
In addition to live game feeds, nhl.com has also recently expanded its on-line content to include podcasts, highlight shows, and a daily video talk show about the latest NHL news. So if you’re not getting all the hockey you need to maintain a balanced lifestyle, check out nhl.com!
