KNOWING BETTER THAN TO EVEN ASK...

The fact Game 1 of the San Antonio Spurs-Phoenix Suns playoff series wasn't being shown on one of the three Canadian sports networks didn't even sink in today.

C'est la vie, if you live in Canada, appreciate all sports and believe that TSN, Hockey Night in Canada and all 807 or so hockey panels are suffocating the life out of hockey like women have with romance and Simon Cowell has with pop music. It was a given

San Antonio won in two OTs, 117-115, after the Suns, taking a page from Raptors coach Sam Mitchell's playbook, graciously accommodated Tim Duncan stepping outside his role and didn't foul intentionally before he hit a tying three-pointer to send the game to the second overtime.

There's nothing unique to say ahead of tomorrow's Game 1 of the Raptors-Magic series. Orlando, at this writing, still has 600 tickets available for a playoff game. What is this, Ottawa?

Sucking the life out of hockey? No kidding, it's long gone for me. BO-RING. Boring play, boring playoff structure (16 in - 14 out), BO-RING endless analysis and coverage and NOTHING ELSE. No baseball, basketball, golf, football. No Baseball Tonight, no ESPN with a variety of sports. Where, oh where can you buy direcTV up here? Forced hockey coverage 11 months of the year does nothing but turn people away, it just gets too monotonous, kinda like me....

Funny how there are 600 tickets left.
A friend of mine tried to buy raptors tickets last night but all that was available on ticketmaster was "Jersey Sales".
We just guessed that all the corperate sponsors and season ticket holders had bought them all.
