that's cool, too bad it isn't on the main ESPN for the finals
I share the sentiment, but I believe it'll be regular season baseball time for ESPN, so the Grand Finals would be going head-to-head with Sunday Night Baseball.
it's only the second week into the regular season, and ESPN has Yankess-Tigers that night. home game for the team that finished last in the AL-Central last year?
Last year, they only showed an hour of the semi-finals, which was like two and a half matches. So it's a pretty good improvement to show all of the semi and grand finals.
If you think helping make stuff like this happen is cool, the eSports team needs web engineers. :)
