Today is the annual basketball game between Missouri and Illinois which will be broadcast on ESPN 2 at 1 this afternoon. This is always a huge game for this region, but I sense a not so much interest this year as in the past. Maybe the two teams aren't nationally competitive or maybe I've just been too busy to pay attention. I just don't see the rah rah stuff going on this year.
And, it's being played early afternoon which is unusual, normally it's a prime time game. I'm glad, though. It's tough to stay up late to see the game through to the end.
