No, they'll be just as bad...I can't stand either ESPN or NBC...NBC only cares about getting their advertisers happy by showing commercials out the wazoo...

Visit MONICA!

I am a sinner too!
Jesus answered and said to him[Nicodemus, a Pharisee],"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again[of the Spirit/above], he cannot see the kingdom of God."--John 3:3

Good works can't save you from hell!! Jesus loves you and wants to be in your heart and mind!!!

I will worship Jesus forever!

Yeah and having those annoying NBCsportscenter (or something stupid like that) breaks where they update you on what you're missing in the LPGA or give you a wonderful 'sneak peek' of the equestrian trials coming up! Lovely! I tune in to watch tennis and all I see is John McEnroe driving around in a Lincoln chasing after a stupid tennis ball every 5 minutes, the words "AIG or IBM or PriceWaterhouseCoopers" again and again and again and again after and before every commercial break, and then back to some more updates on NBCsportscentre where you're reminded once more to go to NBCsports.com for the latest commentary from that heaven sent scribe Bud Collins! and then maybe if I'm lucky, they'll have some live, non tape delayed, tennis in between all those commercials and logos and slogans, only to be preempted by the latest episode of Passions! NBC must think that all the well heeled business execs they try to sell to in the morning must instantly morph into docile housewives at the striking of the clock at 1 pm?
And that's on a day without rain delays at wimby, otherwise I'd be stuck watching Agassi's 1st round match from the day/week/year before with an oh so entertaining qualifier who Agassi mops the court with 6-1,6-0,6-0 while Cliff Drysdale and Pat McEnroe chat on and on about how good it would be to have Agassi play davis cup that year....ugh!

ehhhh. i dont know what to say. espn coverage doesnt seem all that bad to me, but just to every other living organism. i like nbs, but they advertise too much and dont care about tennis as much.
