Skating on TV this year
I will admit that I'm way behind on this and I'm sure it has been discussed a great deal but, would someone provide a short snip-it as to why non of the GP events are on TV - at least Cable tv? Obviously, I missed something.....
The Zamboni Rocks!!!

Personally I would rather see NBC show the Grand Prix series then the horrible Disson Shows they have been showing!!

yup, in the US you have to subscribe to Ice Network if you want to see it on a screen and not live... NBC just isn't interested in the option...we'll get to see nationals and worlds though. at least we get something *shrugs*
