NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Round of 64, Evening

Once again the Women get snubbed by having only the one Network (ESPN) and even only one Channel (ESPN 2), the second best one (though some would argue who wants to watch Sports Center 24/7 and I would be forced to agree) at that.

It’s not like Disney doesn’t have dozens of Channels on your Cable that would be totally suitable. Indeed ESPN has dozens all by itself and they hemorrhage money because they pay too much for rights to stupid things like the NFL while letting smart networks like NBC suck up the rights to weird but interesting sports like Curling, Formula One (ugh, time for that again), Premier League, and America’s Cup.

Though they do have good promo commercials.
