It’s 3:30 pm Central on a Sunday. The Minnesota Lynx just tipped in Tulsa versus the Shock. Both teams are solid in the West and well, Sunday at 3 is the NFL’s big time slot.
So what channel is showing the WNBA?
FSN is showing the Twins. I get it.
CBS is showing the Shark Rocket? Well, they don’t have a contract with the NBA & WNBA. I get it.
Surely, it’s on NBC. Nope. NBC and ABC are showing golf.
Fox Sports 1 is showing Trinidad & Tabago vs Panama. They are pursuing the world game.
ESPN is rerunning the Home Run Derby. Come on, ESPN? That’s disappointing. If people love baseball, games are on today. Those fans are already busy watching baseball.
ESPN2 is showing the Pan America games and MLS Soccer. Those are happening now and it makes sense.
What about NBC Sports? Showing NASCAR.
After all that, surely NBA TV is on it. After all, the best way to expand the footprint of “the Association” is to support a league for women.
Nope, NBA TV is showing After Dark with Rick Fox. That’s in case you missed it earlier this week and forgot to set your DVR.
Somehow the Lynx and Shock are not on TV at all. Ugh. How is this possible? They are obviously not buried on a busy sports day.
Right now, I’m disappointed that the NBA & ESPN aren’t using this day to plug their interests in women’s basketball. Since some fans are not watching Major League Baseball, they are missing an opportunity. Not so much today, but they should be showing it thinking of tomorrow.
