SICK SICK SICK!!

It's been 10 hours and I'm still mad.

10 hours ago I found that my beloved Mavs is playing their super rival, the Spurs, tomorrow. Seeing how there are only 2 games scheduled for tomorrow, i was so sure that i am going to see the super-competitive, ultra-intense matchup on TV. Well, that's just not how the TW stations roll. With their Gandolf-like wisdom, the scheduling dudes decided to show the other game, which features a really really good Phoenix Suns and a really really bad Chicago Bulls.

What's the logic in this? We all know who's gonna win that game. The fact is it's been like a popularity contest with NBA game scheduling in Taiwan. People just want to see Kobe, McGrady, Yao Ming, Iverson, King James...So hardcore fans like me are forced to digest at least 2 Lakers/Nuggets/Cavs/Rockets games per week.

I'm not complaining 'cause I can't watch my Mavs tomorrow. I'm complaining simply because I want to see some variations. Are there only 6 teams in the NBA now? Last time I checked, there were 30 teams in all. So why are we getting these overly-matched games every week.

And this season has become the worst. 90% of the games shown here in Taiwan so far, were either blowouts, or games decided by 10 or more points. In other words, bo-ring! When you have limited time slots on limited days to show NBA games. Shouldn't you pick games that'd be competitive and intense and make the fans riled up like roosters in the morning? Isn't that the most logical thing to do?

That's it! If I'm ever rich from some schemes I come up with, I'll start my own TV network. I'll call it NBA/MLB channel. That's right, on this channel you will see only NBA and MLB games. And not just some games, but lots and lots of games. Yup, that'll be my dream now, however impossible that may be. 'cause I'm just so sick of watching Lakers vs Rockets.
