Conan More Important Than Hockey

NBC is broadcasting most of the Stanley Cup Finals this year, planning on airing games 1,2,5,6,7 but choosing to NOT show games 3 and 4 which could result in the network missing the actual championship. The reason for such a move? Conan O’Brien’s debut in the Tonight Show is supposed to take place on June 1, the same date that Game 3 would happen. Since NBC has been planning this move for several years now, it is reasonably understandable that they would want to ensure that his debut goes off without a hitch. The last thing the network needs is for the hockey game to go long and push back Conan’s start.

That said, it’s nice to see the clout that the NHL wields; they are unable to stand up against a guy who used to regularly feature a masturbating bear on his show…

Mr. Met Mystery Solved!

Thank god, the beheading of Mr. Met from the debate the other night turns out to have been a HOAX! That wasn’t the real Mr. Met, who we all know is not a costumed mascot but a rabid Mets fan suffering from a pituitary inflammation. The real Mr. Met wears uniform 00 and this impostor wore no number.

It turns out that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and thus Robert Smigel were doing a bit for the Conan O’Brien television program. Phew!
