Doesn't it always work like this?
The first Oklahoma Sooners football game of the regular season that IS NOT televised on local channels is the first one in which my beloved Sooners fell behind in points and made a game of it (though we eventually pulled it off).
Watching the game statistics on ESPN just isn't the same, somehow.
I'm having an interesting debate with an acquaintance on the state of free speech in Canada. I'll post it here later -- suffice it to say that, although the Canadian Constitution purports to defend free speech, the wording explicitly allows the Parliament to set such regulations and limitations as are "reasonable and justified". Guess who decides whether something is reasonable or justified? That's right -- Parliament, along with an increasingly liberal court.
Scary stuff -- Canada is experiencing the slippery slope effect. Stay tuned.
