Free Your Miiiiiind- NBA Finals Game 4 Tonight

Is it possible that this series can be salvaged? Is it possible for (as TBJ dubs him) LeBroNeo to carry the Cavs to unprecedented territory within the sport of Basketball? Is it possible for the series to not finish as the lowest watched Finals ever? Will you even watch?

These are the questions that I'm asking myself this afternoon. And that's what David Stern is asking himself as well...

Stern yesterday said, "We've had, shall I say, inelegant games, and the ratings show me that our fans are very discerning. ... I'm disappointed because I think if we had a great series, we'd be up at 9s. ... But there is an ongoing erosion in all ratings on television today."

And while that's true....these ratings are baaaaaaaad. Much worse than he's even letting on....

The series' first three games have averaged a 6.1/11 and 9.1 million viewers, with the rating down 23% from last year's 7.9/14. It also is down 2% from the previous all-time low of 6.2/11 in '03. So far, 13 programs, including 11 repeats, have either matched or outrated the Finals.
Reruns my friends....reruns of shows like King of Queens. And tonight it gets worse....yes, my AAians.....Pirate Master followed by a rerun of CSI!!!!!!!

For some reason I watch this show but I will admit, Pirate Master is the worst show ever. Go ahead, bring another one to the table, Pirate Master will smack it down. That being said, I'll be on the couch at 8 tonight watching it.

The gun katas. Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically predictable element. The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the statistically traditional trajectories of return fire. By the rote mastery of this art, your firing efficiency will rise by no less than 120%. The difference of a 63% increase to lethal proficiency makes the master of the gun katas an adversary not to be taken lightly.
