They used to show the Magic the Gathering Pro Tour on it too. Back in the early days of Magic too.

I don't see whats the problem with paintball, its an actual athletic event.

I love watching that stuff. I like watching old clips of Tank Abott, he is a monster. Just "bought" UFC Ultimate Knockouts 1, 2, and 3. Good stuff.

And for the record I really liked watching the paintball, except it was almost impossible to determine the refs(?) from the actual players. Dominos, no thank you.

Hockey is where Hockey put itself - in ratings limbo. That's what happens when you kill a season and piss off a generation of fans.

You heard that Women's College Softball out-rated the NHL Hockey playoffs recently, right? I think it was even the Finals.

Hockey did itself in. You can't blame ESPN for not showing them.

Don't get me wrong, it's a sport. But not that exciting to watch on TV. And honestly, who even knew there was a professional paintball league???

The Spelling Bee Championship peaked when that kid passed out. It has been all down hill after that. :-b

I'm waiting for the International Bikini Oil Twister Championships to air. It would blow MNF out of the water. :-D
