Hockey in general is kind of (let’s be serious, completely) on the back burner for ESPN coverage. They used to cover hockey regularly, back in 1992. It’s a fact many teams and fans have come to accept. The Blue Jackets, being young, are even lower on the totem pole of ESPN. So when ESPN attempted to get the Blue Jackets in on a fan contest they are doing, the Blue Jackets (as they have in the past) struck back.
The Arena District and Downtown Columbus have come to love the Jackets and their snark. Well played boys, well played.
