F!ck ESPN

we only get one match of YEC per day and it starts at 10:30 pm EST. i have to wake up at 5 anyways. they seriously want to kill tennis; if they showed 5 minutes of tennis for every single time they showed a re-run of the world poker championships (and poker isn't even a sport), I'd be happy

ugh, why do they all suck????????

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

Don't get all happy yet. Espn was also going to show us one or two hours of the Italian and German Opens at around 4:30 am on the Mondays after the tournaments. They just didn't. Just because it's on the schedule doesn't mean some chauvinist at Espn won't get interested in seeing a (fill in the blank) game. "Hey, let's put that on instead." "Great idea, Bob–let's do it."

The reality TV I'd like to see is video of the Espn programming team at work. Let's see them around the table, at lunch, at the strip club, etc. making decisions.

According to my calculations, ESPN will be showing 7 out of the 12 "first round" matches (same day live, next day tape)
It's a shame that a non-U.S. network (Eurosport) would outshine and outclass an American one. But, of course, we are talking about ESPN

ESPN has much better coverage of Houston than YEC this year, they just can't get enough of Roddick.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!
