So I am in the Chicago area for work.  I am happy that I can fully take of advantage of the one nationally televised game we have.  A  Coworker and me went to a sports bar to grab dinner/beer and watch some hockey..  When we get there I ask the server to turn the hockey game on NBCSN.  She says ok.  I see the bartender fiddling with the remote and struggling to turn on.  After a couple minutes, said bartender comes over to us and says "I can't find the Hawks game.  I don't think they are playing.".  I tell him that I know and I want to watch the Blue jackets as I look down at the CBJ shirt that I am wearing.  They are finally able to figure out how to turn it on.  It was shocking to them that some one could care about about the jackets.   Hence why we get no respect nationally.  This is a fun team to watch.  I wish America (and NBC) would realize that.
