TRH PLAYOFF GAMEDAY 2 – ST. LOUIS BLUES: SIDE SPLITTING
WHEN JON QUICK PLAYS THE PUCK BEHIND HIS NET:
but I know everyone in Los Angeles had the chance
to see it on TNT instead of Fox Sports Prime Ticket.
Followed by Rizzoli and Isles.
“With Clippers, Kings, and Ducks all having playoff games last night, we tried the make the best of a challenging situation and offer balanced coverage of all the teams. In similar situations going forward, we’ll take a look a look at our plans and see if there’s a way to serve all teams and viewers better.”
“We sincerely apologize to the Kings and the Clippers and their fans,” said Steve Simpson, senior vice president and general manager, FOX Sports West and Prime Ticket. “We didn't serve them as well we should have with our coverage of last night’s games. Going forward, there is a plan in place to ensure all remaining playoff games are seen in their entirety, which includes lifting local blackouts if necessary.”
But what several people don't understand is that this isn't the first time something like this has happened… especially with a Fox Sports Prime Ticket broadcast. I mean who could forget where they were on July 20, 1969 when a small step for mankind happened to be occurring at the same time as a traveling violation in the paint?
Or May 6, 1937, when "Oh The Humanity!" wasn't just what Ralph Lawler screamed after a Blake Griffin dunk?
Or on August 8th, 1974, when Richard Nixon told the country that he was not a hook… shot.
Or on June 17, 1994… when the real basketball chase down began.
And finally… who could forget October 15, 1988… when people all around Los Angeles saw the impossible happen.
But don't think that this split screen phenomenon is specific to the Los Angeles Clippers. No, in fact on several occasions during a Fox Sports Prime Ticket broadcast, Los Angeles Kings hockey has shared the screen with other important moments in our culture's history.
I'll never forget where I was when Caroline and Teresa came at each other, bro.
"Please Stand By" is also what Darryl Sutter says to Alec Martinez each day.
Oh man, I remember this one!
That was the episode when that person got hit in the testicles!
This is pretty much every Christmas in The Royal Half Household.
OKAY FOX SPORTS PRIME TICKET… NOW THAT IS ENOUGH ALREADY!!!
You know… when a big corporation like Fox Sports treats its loyal customers this way… it makes me want to slam my head against a wall.

with the Fox Sports Prime Ticket Split Screen…
