Stanley Cup Finals Mirror Famous “Heidi” NFL Game [VIDEO]
In 1968, the Oakland Raiders played the New York Jets in a see-saw game that most people didn’t see the end of. It became known as “The Heidi-bowl” because the entire East Coast cut away from the game to watch a popular children’s show called ‘Heidi’. They never saw the two touchdowns that the Raiders scored within :09 to come back and win.
On Wednesday, people in the Austin area felt that pain. They never got to see the final goal of Game 4 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Local CBS affiliate KXAN in Austin cut to a commercial as the Blackhawks went into overtime against the Boston Bruins. When they came back to the game, it was already over. All that they saw was the celebration after the game-winning goal.
