I like Harrington. Too bad for Garcia, he played an incredibly consistent game and made pretty much every putt he had to.

I guess so. Is there anything more ridiculous and pitiful sounding than a golf channel?

The golf channel is great. I wish I got it at home and not just in the dorms.

A lot of other people took my suggestions (Tennis channel). I suppose depending on your perspective, SPEED (everything autosports) probably stinks too. :)

Of course, now we're in Quadruplecast mode with the Olympics...

I don't know if Byko has time to play golf, but he has before methinks.

When it was Fox Sports World, a majority was soccer, but the other programming was fun to watch. Now, that fun is gone.

So you're saying that because they got rid of, like, rugby, the channel is now worthless?

From what I remember, and this is a long time ago: rugby, AFL, Gaelic football/hurling once in a while, Gilette and Transworld Sport shows which highlighted many different sports in different locations, and once in a while cricket.

From what I've seen/read, Setanta Sports seems pretty damn good, but neither I nor my roommate are shilling the money for Dish/DirecTV/etc.

I guess we just have a fundamental disagreement on whether soccer is interesting. I love soccer but have no interest for Australian Rules, Rugby Union/League, etc. I get the sense you feel the opposite. And yeah, you'd get more of that, especially rugby, with Setanta, but I know that on Directv you don't even get it unless you specifically pay $15/month for it. The first Arsenal game of the season is on Setanta so I'm going to have to fork over the 15 bucks and then cancel it after a month.

For the most part, I like soccer, and watch it on occasion on ESPN360. I just didn't like the other sports being given the heave-ho.
