Nice read. I feel a little better about not having cable now.

When I read the subject line, I thought this was one of those 5-year-old threads that someone bumped just for fun.

Great thread and read (article).

I was watching SC last night and I thought I was going nuts when they began to cover the Red Sox/Yankees/Clemens start for the second time in the first 20 minutes of the show.

If someone were to ante up against these guys there is a real market for knowledgable sports fans.
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Jesus that was a good article. I don't even get that show up here and I'm annoyed with the apparent decline of BBTN. And since there are no Baseball specific highlight and analysis shows up here (and we have 2 competing national sports networks) I'd like to see TBS take a shot at a nightly highlight show as they have the NLCS and the ALCS and time to fill and I get TBS.

Thank god for the internet. (Reason #27) ;-D

[quote="mbuser"]the state of ESPN as a whole is pretty depressing. they are the worst example of the sports media monster that they created in the first place. i miss the time when 'the sports reporters' was a prominent show[/quote]

The Sports Reporters has always been one of the most boring sports shows on television.
