For those who might also be watching the test pattern on Cablevision while waiting to see Rangers-Ottawa… the lovely woman on the customer service line insisted Ch. 24 would kick in just in time for the game to start at 8 p.m.
The Rangers were ahead 2-1 at that time, the game having begun at 7:30. It’s now 8:01, it’s 3-2 Ottawa, and Ch. 24 still has a test pattern. When I call back, I expect to be told it’s all illusory.
Aw, heck, the Isles are back on, anyway. (And of course Jeff Hamilton is back up.)
