Duke Basketball Network

Duke Basketball Network LogoAs I turn on DBN tonight, I see the familiar sight of Duke basketball. Tonight they are taking on Georgia Tech, a middle of the ACC dweler. Probably not a great game, but it is the Duke Basketball Network. Oh, you haven’t heard of DBN? Maybe your cable provider doesn’t have it. You should call them and ask about adding it to their lineup. Or maybe you are mistaking DBN for ESPN. You know… the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network.

It seems ESPN dicided to screw Entertainment and other Sports in general in favor of Duke basketball. They are on every night. Check this stat: 20 Duke men’s basketball games are on ESPN or The Duke – Oops, I mean The Duce. Duke only plays 30 regular season games. So that’s two thirds of their games. I’d say that makes them DBN. And this isn’t by accident. These games are scheduled well before the season even starts. CBS tried their best to become WDBN (Weekend Duke Basketball Network) by picking up 4 games on the weekend.

As a Florida basketball fan I have to suffer through FSN Flordia and Sun Sports. And half the games are tape delayed. Who still does that? Don’t even get me started on Craperson Pilot Sports!

So, enjoy the rest of the season on DBN. Oh, and if you are wondering what network is carrying the ACC tournament. You guessed it, Duke Basketball Network!

Ben Troupe is Mother Ginger

Ben Troupe is the backup TE for the Titans. When his teamate and starting TE, Erron Kinney, went down with an injury Troupe backed him up on the field… and off. Aparently Kinney had taken a role in the Nashville Ballet’s version of “The Nutcracker.” Now injured (knee), he asked Toupe to fill in. So, Ben joined the cast in the role of Mother Ginger, a large hoop-skirted woman.

Ben Troupe as Mother Ginger

Nice to see this bond, especially between Gators. Makes me wish I had a backup. Maybe next time I tweak my knee, Alex Brown will take out the trash for me.
