WHich is just shameful. Not to give womens basketball some publicity, however I find ESPNs profits over journalism thing unfortunate. Yes they are a business and entitled to whatever profit they can make, however it seems to me like there could be a balance. Instead of shoving what they have rights to broadcast down our throat, let's find some middle ground and try to appeal to more than just NY and whatever. Showing some hockey would potentially broaden their base, if they put some effort into it. Hockey Tonight anyone?
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
