The Continuing Saga

Having just gotten off the phone with the fine people at Charter Communications yet again, I've learned that the reason they are not yet offering Centre Ice is because they haven't finalized their contract with the NHL. Um, big news right, we all knew that. The girl I talked to today was actually helpful, however, and informed me that apparently the hangup is over the NHL wanting them to bundle the NHL Network with Centre Ice, thus increasing the price, and Charter doesn't like this plan. (So, do we all start blaming Bettman instead of Charter? Better yet can I blame Chris Pronger?)

Personally, hey, if they did it, I'd go for it. But as it stands, they're still arguing the details. Hang in there guys, we'll have hockey...eventually. You know. Maybe by the playoffs.

You can always blame FCP.

Kirsten: As usual, best plan ever.

Kms2: Meee too. I hope they're enjoying me calling them three times a day and whining.

I have them programmed in my cell phone. Whenever anything goes wrong I don't even have to waste time looking up the number!

I almost did that - and then I realized that you know how when you set up your service you call 1-800-GET-CHARTER? Their customer service phone number is basically the same thing but with 888 and the length of a normal phone number - so I remember it by 1-888-GET-CHAR (char being something I would like to do to them right now, presuming we are referring to char like what happens when you set things on fire, so it's applicable).
