Saw HD hockey for the first time yesterday. Dude I work with recorded an HD re-broadcast of last season’s game 7. I’m going to go out on a bit of a limb here and say that except for the smell of the ice, it was better than being there. You want to see the cuts on the ice? The yellow of last night’s bruises? This is the way to go. Trouble is, the fans are in HD, too. Yikes.
