A House Undefended

Separate and distinct from the scoreboard verdict, there was a disquieting vibe to Super Sunday’s matinee tilt between the Penguins and Capitals.

A Veteran Media Voice Speaks Out Against Sufficating Skins Coverage

Did you know that WRC News4 anchor Jim Vance has been with that outlet since 1969?

NBC’s Consortium of Hockey Prognostications

WRC-NBC 4 put together a fun project for the Caps-Rangers series, soliciting the prognostications of a wide array of local hockey voices, with a commendably heavy emphasis on new media voices locally. The blog roll of participants included many of our favorites — Ted Starkey, JP from Japer’s Rink, Dave Nichols, Ed Frankovic, Adam Vingan […]

Winter Classic Promo Debuts on NBC

Over the weekend NBC aired its first substantive promo for the 2011 Winter Classic. Pretty impressive, we think:
