So, I’m out walking the dogs late this morning, and as I feared, KSPN 710 – ESPN Radio in SoCal, is broadcasting a soccer game.
No brain surgeon aftermath. No Laker prognostications. No NCAA realignment banter. No Dodger-Angel interleague series discussion. Nothing of interest. Soccer.
As 710 is the only real sportstalk station in this area, I was doomed. I did try that other station that used to have some interesting talk, 570 (formerly 690) and they were broadcasting what they called a car show. All I heard for the five minutes or so I tried listening was one “commercial” after another for the hosts’ friends who just happen to sell cars.
Unfortunately, my only satellite receiver is in my car.
Also, later in the day, as I could not avoid hearing the score of the match between the US and the British, I must inquire: How in the world could ANY tournament game EVER be allowed to end in a TIE???
