Goodbye TSN: A Love Song

New, comments

Tonight is TSN's last national broadcast for 12 years. To say goodbye, I have created an open thread for tonight's game. Feel free to add comments etc about TSN and the game tonight.

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Goodbye TSN

Though you haven't left at all

You had the heart to stick it out

When the NHL made the call

Rogers came out of the woodwork

And changed the landscape we all know

And you just sat there

While Rogers paid through the nose

And it seems to me you put all your work

Into NHL content

Never knowing what to broadcast

When a lockout began

And I have never known hockey without

Since I'm just a kid

Your candle burned out long before

James' legend ever did

Hockey news is tough

The toughest when you don't have games to show

Canada had their broadcaster

And the NHL sold out anyways

Even at midnight

Bobby Mac was breakin' news

All he had to say

Was that TSN was going rogue

And it seems to me you put all your work

Into NHL content

Never knowing what to broadcast

When a lockout began

And I have never known hockey without

Since I'm just a kid

Your candle burned out long before

James' legend ever did

Goodbye Wednesday nights

Though I didn't watch you much at all

You had the games for Canada

When I wanted to watch you

Goodbye TSN

From hockey fans who watch the game

Who saw you as more than just a broadcaster

As the keepers of Bobby Mac

*Sung to the tune of Elton John's "Candle in the Wind". And yes, I know that TSN is still going to broadcast sports.
