If you’re a hockey fan, one of the worst parts of living on the WestCoast is that all the games you might want to see are all played on the East Coastor in the Midwest. That means that the games start on television at 4or 5 PM Pacific time. That means that if I left work at the stroke offive, I’d still miss at least the first period. TheStanley Cup playoffs are in full swing, and I haven’t seen a single minuteof the three games that have been played.
