Not Even Sponsors


Maybe the Hurricanes are the prototype for Southern Hockey Operations, but there are still some disturbing holes in the local coverage.

Saturday night, we met some tailgating firends ar Brier Creek, to watch the game.  As they are sponsors of the Canes, the Brier Creek Ale House seemed the ideal meeting place.  The place was packed, and had a reasonable waiting list.  After being seated, we informed the waitress we were there to watch the hockey game,and asked for it to be put on a screen at 9:00.  She said she would check with the manager as to where it would be put. After ordering libations and appetizers, she informed us the manager said the game would not be put on a screen, as it was UFC night.  After a fruitless discussion with the manager ("It's not my decision.") we asked for our check and left.  As a side note, he did say they were going to put the NC football game on one screen, though they weren't willing to do the same for the hockey game.  Our friend called Wild Wings, across the parking lot, and was told we could watch the game there.  After some confusion and moving, we got a booth with a good view of the game.  It begs the question: Why can't you watch a Canes game at an Ale House, that is not only a sponsor, but hosts Cool Bars during the season?  We were confused and angry at the whole situation.
