One takeaway from the story about the launch of TSN2, courtesy the Globe & Mail: "TSN acquired the NBA package that was discontinued by Sportsnet at the end of the 2007-08 season."
Whether this is good news depends on how much your cable company makes you pay for the new channel. That goes without saying.
You know better than to even ask if there was any mention of devoting more hours to amateur and women's sports in Canada.
