"The World Wide Leader in Sports"
I'm pretty disappointed with ESPN. I'm just a casual WTA fan (I enjoy the ATP a little more), but I would like to watch or at least have the option to watch some women's tennis. ESPN claims to be "the World Wide leader in sports", so why won't they at least occasionally show some REAL "World Wide" sports? Women's tennis is I believe the most interested, sponsored, supported, and watched sport that involves females, world wide. So what's up ESPN? As I channel surf through the sports channels, I see that ESPN shows big sports like POKER all the f#@king time, darts, 9-ball, bowling, Bass fishing, f#@king fishing for god's-sake. I've even caught them airing Spades, yes the freaking card game, and oh let me not forget the time about a year or so ago they aired some Chess match featuring Kasparov(sp?) versus a COMPUTER! No, not another freaking Grand Master (highest title/level you can reach in Chess), a freaking computer! I see all this, but catching some clips of tennis, even just a few freaking highlights on the network is like pulling teeth. I'm sorry, but I don't appreciate that I must upgrade my cable (and that's assuming that I even live in an area where these channels are available), to get the Tennis Channel and Versus just to get to watch some WTA outside of the Slams and the Tier 1 tournaments played on American soil. Hell, even Roland Garros as of now won't be aired on normal cable (i.e. ESPN); it's been sold to the Tennis Channel I believe. All this is freaking ridiculous.
