It is March and even though here in the U.S. the month is reserved for all purposes for College Basketball’s March Madness 64-draw hoop tournament, I prefer the 96-draws of Indian Wells and Miami that showcase the best in tennis.
TV coverage was scheduled to begin about 30 minutes ago on ESPN2 but when I flipped on the tele no tennis was to be found, and I have no idea when and where it will be found today, if at all. ESPN2 which has listed that it will show tennis from 4pm-8pm Sunday is instead showing the World Baseball Classic, an international World Cup-like baseball event that no one really cares about – at least no one i can tell cares about here in the U.S.
I guess the brass at ESPN2 figured fewer people care less about tennis so in the interest of ratings they will probably get a bigger bang for their buck in the end showing baseball – or they are under contract to show it! Just hope this doesn’t become a trend this month and I wish they would let us tennis folk know when they pull the plug and why before we really go mad…
