But, unfort, Torii plays outside Boston/NY, so he'll be the 3rd story on Sports Center that night, with a short mention.

Effin NY. Effin Boston. Effin ESPN.


fine. the east coast gets all the coverage from the major sports news media outlets. you're absolutely right.

i propose a trade.

we'll give you all the attention you want, in return we move the start times for baseball playoffs and world series, nba finals, monday night football, the hockey stuff, curling, the westminster dog show, the ncaa championships and the national spelunking league back to a respectable start time, 7pm... heck, maybe even an afternoon weekend game every now and then... so that the majority of us on the east coast can actually watch the entire game while still getting to bed at a reasonable hour.

do we have a deal, other coasters?

Don't forget the weather...if you live in SoCal you can't bitch about anything, at least not during northeastern nasty March. If they throw in their weather I'll make that deal every day.

I'm watching right now. It's nice having flexible hours. I think I'll delay my arrival for an hour or so.

Well we've got Dale Barton playing for the A's per Gary Thorne...and either his mic was broken or he had "Suzaka" pitching for the Sox earlier.
