Brief TEEVEE Rant

No idea what corporate / regulatory forces combine to produce appalling things like Sportsnet's Pacific lineup, but jeezis, if you're unwilling / unable to showcase the Southwest and Northeast division leaders (points per game-wise;) and the two most electric young lines in hockey on a dreary Tuesday night, surely you can find something more worthy of subjecting your West Coast viewers to than a rebroadcast of a Toronto-area phone-in show. Needless to say, transplanted Ontarians seeking to get their Fan590 fix could have in fact tuned in to the local radio station and enjoyed the same program minus the visuals (I am somewhat naively led to believe this is the crucial distinction between radio and television programming).

C'mon lads, at least go the ESPN2 route and drop some log rolling / bassmasters / spelling bees into the rotation.

  1. If it makes you feel better - about half the game wasn't watchable because of cable problems.

    Was McCown wearing those awesome shades!

  2. McCowan is hard enough to tolerate on radio. He is doubly hard to tolerate when you can actually see him.
