From the Chronicle:
A related tidbit comes in the form of the schedule for Fox Sports Bay Area on the same day exhibition games start:
4:00 PM Cal Hi Sports Bay Area '04-'05
4:30 PM CAL Basketball Report '04-'05
6:00 PM American Poker Championship at Turning Stone Resort & Casino
7:00 PM Sunday Night Fights '04: Johnson vs Martinez at Pechanga Resort & Casino
8:00 PM Beyond the Glory Dennis Rodman
9:00 PM Sports List, The Officiating Disgraces
9:30 PM Sports List, The Bizarre Moments
My idea is still most likely impractical, but it would be a lot cooler if it weren't. The thing abo...wait a freakin' minute...was that a poker championship on that Fox schedule? Whoa. I apologize, Fox Sports Bay Area. They'll probably get around to showing us a spring game later in the exhibition season, but you will not be able to find televised poker anywhere after the APCTSRCsies. Should have picked a better day to make my point.
Seriously, if they parked a cameraman behind home, left the audio of the game and crowd intact, and put it on at 1:00 a.m., who here wouldn't set their VCRs or TiVos, or -- if a night owl like myself -- stay up and watch?
