I only root for Ohio when they play Duke in basketball. Otherwise I have no incentive to root for Ohio.

I'm no expert but from what I have read when I've dabbled in the topic, the TV networks would just raise the price of each channel if you'd get ala carte.
I used to advocate ala carte but I'm fine with bundling, although, as I said before, I am quite confused how the provider determines which networks get bundled. For instance, I live in Maryland, right outside DC, and I get Big Ten Network on basic tier FiOS. However, FSC, WGN, NFL Network, and NHL Network are not on basic tier.

Speaking of which, FiOS already includes BTN on my system in Maryland, at no extra charge. You'll have to pay extra for Fox Soccer, NFL Network, and NHL Network, but enjoy BTN on basic tier.
I don't know how it works, and I'm not complaining, BTN has some good stuff. :)

This came up before, but if someone made Football Manager 13 for college football, that game would likely be the best game of all time. And I'd throw down 30 bucks every year for updated versions.

The NBA hasn't been the same since. The last time I loved the NBA was 2004. Slowly got worse from there.
No surprise the decline of Detroit Basketball also coincided with my decreased interest in the league. Everything's a foul now. You can't play Bad Boy defense anymore. Stern changed the rules a few years back.

I was very happy to hear this when I read the column on SI. Bad Boys were great and did Detroit proud. Deeeeeeeetroit Basketball™
They played a brand of defense that has rarely been seen since. Today's NBA is too ticky-tack. Anything's a foul. Back then you played and played hard. And those Bad Boys didn't let nothing go. Elbows, physical, that was good basketball, I don't care what those outside Detroit say.
They were hated outside Detroit, but loved in the city. They were great and I look forward to watching

Good to see the Wings will play on, and that they'll play at a reasonable time when most of the East Coast isn't asleep. Couldn't watch the ending of that game, had to wake up at 4:30 AM to find out who won.
Little surprised Detroit pulled it off, and I kind of feel sorry for Bruce, because Bruce is a good coach. Just ran into a Detroit team playing well at the right time.
Good luck against Blackhawks.

NHL playoffs are insanely fun. Good to see the Wings won last night.
Lot of competitive series, as usual.

How old is Phil? Plus, his last days with the Lakers were plagued with health problems and his first sweep he'd ever suffered (to Dallas)
I don't know if he'd help as a coach. I read the other day the Pistons were looking at a Spurs assistant. Sure, they've hired assistants before, and retreads, but I think they should hire another assistant and give him a chance.
Pistons have fallen a long way from that team I grew up watching though, with Chauncey and Rip and Tay and Sheed. Those were the good days.
DEEEEEEEEE-TROIT BASKETBALL (TM)

These games on too late. Woke up today and found out they won in OT after blowing a 4-1 lead. :(
Come on Wings

I'm happy for the Wings, but they run into a good Anaheim team. Not sure if they can win that series.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Shorter regular season was||
Shorter regular season was good although it did provide less leniency. If you fell in too big a hole, you were done. Teams like Toronto and New York Islanders managed to make the playoffs for the first time in approximately a decade, which is good.

Meh, For things like computers and technology, I want to put my hands on it right away. I don't want to wait 2 or 3 days for shipping.
I like using newegg, but for computers and things, I can't wait. :(

What an odd way to wake up at 6 AM this morning. Woke up to the radio report from Mike and Mike about today's events. Hopefully they catch the guy responsible for these heinous acts and throw the book at him.

Not surprising, hopefully Michigan is able to recuperate. Have strong belief this team will continue their winning ways next year
