It's all about the Cowboys, Giants, Patriots, Cavs, Lakers, Celtics, Yankees, and Red Sox.
You forgot Tiger... he's real high on their list too.
ESPN is the big dog now... the corporate conglomerate of the sports TV world... they cater to what they consider to be the biggest block of viewers. I'm not saying I like it, that's just the way it is...
I still watch it, but I get way more of my sports info from the web than anywhere (just like other news too...).

This is just the corporate controlled media going after what's popular. Yankees, Red Sox, Cowboys, Celtics & Lakers... not us. I understand we aren't the top team in the east, but even if we were... it wouldn't matter.
It's rather pathetic, but it's why you gotta love for you take because their YOUR team, and not because they are the popular fad of the moment.

...too bad we have a monopoly here in the States.
Up in Canada there are countless different sports stations/views...I was up in Montreal during the first round of the NCAA's and there is a station "The Score" (mostly dedicated to basketball) which showed every game...they would go back and forth from game to game...no commercials...they would literally have 3 straight hours of basketball...when there was nothing to show they would go to the studio w/ two commentators.
During the break...when no games were going on...they would play commercials from 15 min or so...so that when the games came back on they could just show them commercial-free...awesome coverage...much better than CBS...MUCH better...

The Canadians were just stoned, and forgot to show the commercials.
