Via Twitter comes this James Harden cake. That is all.
Is This A Legit Excuse?
Earlier today I saw some Tweets from John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal. The first was, "Devils-Rangers drew 1.3M viewers to NBCSN Mon and Wed -- most watched NHL game on cable. LA-PHX only drew 835K on Tue and 827K on Thu." Then came, "Top MLB game on cable last week was ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball game with the Cards-Dodgers (1.7M viewers)." I found it interesting that a random regular season Sunday night baseball game easily topped the ratings of the NHL Conference Finals games. I asked my followers for their take, and many people brought up the fact that "fans" can't find the NBC Sports Network on their TVs. I find this excuse completely absurd. Is it really difficult, in this day and age, to look up a channel? How long could it possibly take to find a channel? Doesn't everyone have a "guide" button or access to Google? Anyway, it's always dangerous to trust Twitter for opinions, so I'm bringing this here.
