Epic Fail: NBC

I'm not even a Penguins fan, but I have to say that it is pretty foolish of NBC to once again shut down the outdoor screen for this Game 2 of the second playoff round between the Pens and Montreal.

To me, the outdoor screen in Pittsburgh is one of the most fan friendly items in sports. As someone who may never be able to afford playoff tickets, or travel to see my team play in a playoff game, the idea of being able to sit outside on a beautiful Sunday afternoon with thousands of other fans to watch a game just seems to be a worthwhile experience.

This is the second year NBC has made that screen stay dark for the playoffs. I would have hoped they learned. How much more good will they would have received from allowing it will never be known.

Sad for sure.

NBC is a joke of epic proportions. You're so very correct here. But, look at their intermission crew, they won't learn.

I don't understand that either. If the game is sold out inside, whats the big deal if its shown outside?
