I get that Kobe Bryant's tragic death was a horrible way to go, and that he died way too young. But to rebroadcast his final game instead of a live game seems a bit much. Isn't that what ESPN Classic is for?

While I find this idea preposterous as a KU fan,  Im quite sure they'll catch higher ratings with Kobe's last game -- especially if they are marketing it well (and im sure they are) -- than the KU vs. OSU game.

Oops! I missed the Memo!

I DVR'd ESPN on DIRECTV Guide (said KU-OSU).

I was going to watch over morning coffee, no KU game!

First game I have missed in several years. Oh well.
