Question Help! CBS is showing Florida football but what about Tennis?

The game is in the third quarter, and will not be finished by 8:30 pm. Will they cut this crap away and show tennis?

THIS IS LUDICRUS!

To me Pam is a frustraded person who needs to live with the fact that she never won a Slam during her pathetic career, and she was never a threat to anybody. She resents the fact that players can get to places she always dreamed about. Unfortunatelly she has a microphone in her mouth and that allows her to spread a whole bunch of BS. That gives her joy. Someone should tell her to stick that micro somewhere else, she would get even more joy that way.

I'm sure the Women's final will be shown live... Right now I'm watching the Mcenroe vs Becker match on AOL and he is just pathetic.. It's like Old men on the court out there... Get lost Mcenroe.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

I'm with you Dawn! It was ridiculous! CBS should have left that blowout at 8:30pm EST and gone to the U.S. Open. To make the players and fans who traveled from far away wait another hour was preposterous!

And venusfan, why you talk about John Patrick Mcenroe, the most talented tennis player ever and the best tennis commentator ever, in such a derogatory manner!

they will never, ever breakaway from a football game again

The Heidi Bowl

One of the most exciting finishes in sports history was not seen on television. This football game became known as the Heidi Bowl (or Heidi Game). On November 17, 1968, the New York Jets led the Oakland Raiders 32-29, with 50 seconds to go. It was the end of the hour, and even though the score was close, NBC switched over to the cartoon movie Heidi. In the next 42 seconds, Oakland scored two touchdowns to win 43-32.

What happened was a torrent of angry calls from East Coast couch potatoes, who asked, in colorful terms, why a spunky little girl had replaced their football game. They flooded the switchboard at Manhattan's Rockefeller Plaza and crashed the phone exchange.

Evermore, TV networks would stay with football games until their conclusion. The program to follow would then "slide," rather than being joined in progress.

Although it was a blow out, no TV exec will ever cut away from a football game again.
