This is the reason I wish NFL/NBA/MLB Networks came standard on cable packages.

It's stuff like this (not the players' fault) that makes me want to see them lose.

The Knicks should be banished to the Izod Center for the past decade of misery. It's worse than folding.

And the clicks on ESPN.com for this Heat Index will probably be great as well.

I watch sports on ESPN, but I refuse to watch SportsCenter or any of their other crappy shows. About half the content on that channel is unwatchable.

Right on. Aside from the games, ESPN is for muppets.
