Blackhawks broadcaster Eddie Olczyk is cancer-free: ‘We beat this thing’
Eddie Olczyk finished his chemotherapy on Feb. 21. Then he had to wait nearly six weeks for his final scans to determine if the cancer was indeed gone.

“I don’t know what those scans are going to say and I’m scared still,” he said on March 2. “What will they say? What are they going to tell me?”

Well, because of emergency hernia surgery, Olczyk had his scans early — and he got the news he and so many in the hockey world had been waiting for. He’s cancer-free.

“I’ve had enough crying to last me a lifetime,” Olczyk said on NBC Sports Chicago on Thursday night. “I got the call on March 14 at 5:07 p.m. letting me know my scans were clear. And I never heard a better phrase in my life. I’m now 10 days on with the rest of my life.” ... thing/amp/

Good for Eddie.
It's nice to get some good news after the last few days, when it seemed bad news was on repeat, repeat, repeat.... :(

Interesting survey @ MSN today with over 100,000 responses.....

Which network do you watch most?

Netflix (36 Emmy nominations)
HBO (35 Emmy nominations)
FX (24 Emmy nominations)
I don't watch any of these

23%.... Netflix (36 Emmy nominations)
8%.... HBO (35 Emmy nominations)
8%.... FX (24 Emmy nominations)
61%.... I don't watch any of these
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I can understand a low % for HBO, since it's by subscription and not available to everyone. Guess that would be true of Netflix, too. I know I can't watch Netflix (unfortunately, because it does have stuff I'd like to watch) because of my not-wonderful download speeds, as well as the cost.
FX is a standard cable channel, but I wonder how many people regularly check its programming? It's really just been in recent years that it's developed some quality original programming.
