The Columbus Blue Jackets are a professional sports team that plays in the National Hockey League. If you're a regular viewer of SportsCenter, you may not be aware of this fact. You're not alone, though. Not even SportsCenter's most dominating personalities are aware of this fact.
The NHL doesn't get much love on SportsCenter, and the Blue Jackets are perhaps the least covered franchise of the four major sports in Bristol. A small market franchise with no superstars (aside from Sergei BOBROVSKY) and just 1 playoff appearance in 13 years checks all the boxes for being totally ignored by SportsCenter.
The only way the franchise will get coverage is through unconventional methods. When college football analyst and CBJ fan Kirk Herbstreit appeared to talk about the Texas head coaching situation, he got a shoutout in for the Jackets' 5-4 win over the Devils because he and everyone else knew that was the only way they would ever be mentioned on SportsCenter.no comments
