Beach volleyball returns to Brooklyn; BDSSP is no more
Odd and ends:
NBC has the women's final at 4:30 p.m. Saturday and the men's final at 4:30 p.m. Sunday of the AVP stop at Coney Island. This will be the first time Chris Marlowe and Paul Sunderland call an event together since the Sydney Olympics. The two were teammates on the 1984 Olympic team and have worked three Olympics together. Heather Cox is the sideline reporter.
Fox Sports Net's "Best Damn Sports Show Period" is kaput. Sports Business Journal's John Ourand reports: Fox confirmed that "Best Damn Sports Show Period" taped its final studio show today, and it will be telecast tonight. The show will remain on the schedule through the fall in its "Top 50" format. A few new "Top 50" shows will be produced as well. "Obviously, since the show premiered in 2001, the RSNs have re-focused and added tons of local pro games and locally produced shoulder programs," a Fox spokesperson said in an e-mail. "The need to have a show like 'BDSSP' fill in the gaps isn't what it was eight years ago."
We have only six more months to decide, people. Is it going to be called "twenty ten" or "two thousand ten?"
