HBO 24/7 Maple Leafs/Red Wings Episode 1 (full video)

I finally got around to watching my favourite television show that comes around once a year. I’m talking about the third season of HBO 24/7 Road to the Winter Classic.

The second season of HBO’s 24/7 series debuted last night and once again it’s the best thing on television. Last year’s show featured the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals in the weeks leading up to the Winter Classic.

I LIKE the NHL All-Star Game

Ok, maybe “like” is a little strong, but I don’t mind it. I certainly don’t hate it or think that it should be abolished (unlike a lot of members of the media).
