Lance ‘Versus’ The NHL
My latest blog at FromThePoint.com focuses on Lance Armstrong and his issues with a Versus programming decision:
So I was watching the Tour of California bicycle race last night on the Versus Network . Really. All of five minutes of it actually, since immediately following it was the 2nd game of the Eastern Conference Finals. Promptly at 7 PM ET, Versus switched the coverage to the hockey broadcast, apparently with a mile to go to the finish.
Later that evening, the twitter community (at least the people who follow Mr Armstrong) received the following tweet:
“Who’s the dumbass @versustv that cut off @AmgenTourofCali coverage w/ a mile to go for pregame hockey?? #pathetic”
