I have griped here before about the challenges of watching TV in Canada, especially sports. Well, I am frustrated yet again. I have bought into the Sport Guy's (Bill Simmons) hype about the new documentary series on ESPN--30 for 30. Thirty documentaries by thirty different directors about an event that took place during the thirty years of ESPN's existence. It has received excellent reviews, well at least from those who are connected to the Sports Guy.
But, Tuesday nights, which is when ESPN is broadcasting the series, is, of course, yet another hockey night in Canada for TSN, our ESPN-equivalent. TSN shows a lot of ESPN programming but not always when ESPN shows it, so I have to hunt and hope that the program in question does not conflict with other stuff I like. And tonight would have been perfect since there is little else of interest on.
If anyone can find out when and where I can get 30 for 30 in Canada, let me know.
