    WOW! We really have a lot of nationally televised games this year. :)

    My worry is that the Nationally games that are also on FSN are going to be blacked out for me and Cox won't carry the FSN games. :(

    I knew what I had was not good scoop (I have been out of it with checking threads daily like a good Clutchfans poster should), I guess the Rockets released the press release today to announce the local coverage or somethin'....

    Anyways, thanks for the scoop on my non-scoop:cool:
