Game Two of Golden Baseball League Championship Finals is tonight in Tucson, Arizona, at 8:00PM Calgary-time.
Maybe it was just me, but the local Tucson Radio station that covers the Toros and broadcasts play-by-play of their games didn’t seem to like Canadians… and then when I “convinced” the site I was American, it didn’t like my old Mac. I had to refresh the Pointstreak Scoreboard all night to keep up to date with the score. Where has Pointstreak’s game-day visual play-by-play gone?
I know I’m not the only Calgarian who wants to hear, on the radio, live play-by-play of our local baseball heroes fighting for glory. Calgary is a city that, en masse, likes winning sports teams more than just about anything. If the local sports radio, The Fan 960, ever had a perfect opportunity to promote baseball on the radio here in our fair city, it’s now, while the team is up 1-0 in the finals and is still out-of-town.
But no, the Fan 960 is airing an NFL game tonight.
A quick tally:
- Number of NFL teams in Calgary: 0
- Number of GBL teams in Calgary: 1
We should expect more from our local sports radio. For one, anyone that cares about the NFL is probably certainly going to watch the game on TV, eh? Airing an NFL game is just The Fan 960’s way of filling evening air time. If they’re just looking to fill the airwaves, why can’t they do it with something that matters to this city? Who matters more to this city right now: Kerry Collins or “The Bat From The Hat” Drew Miller? Santonio Holmes or GLROTY Colin Moro?
