So much great sports coverage, everything from hockey (of course) to some guy named 'James Shields of the San Diego Padres... Okay yes I am starting to be a bit sarcastic...

But could it have hurt to have mentioned one little thing called the "NBA Championship"... After all it does start tonight (Thursday night). Oh that's right, ... I will be tuning in to watch 3 hours of San Diego baseball instead...

I know Regina and Sask are football and hockey first, but believe me in that millions of people across North America, including Canada, and including Saskatchewan believe it or not, will be tuning in to watch the NBA final that begins tonight; could it have hurt to at least mentioned it... maybe squeeze it in there between the Minnesota Twins coverage and the Tampa Bay Rays updates...
