Something else odd I noticed today.
That same station was transmitting ESPN sports OTA, college football, this afternoon.
And it was the ABC network doing this. Weird, no?

ABC does this because they know how many college football fans watch OTA. However, two weeks ago when the NASCAR race ran waaay long, they dumped out at 7 Eastern for local stations to run their highly profitable newscasts, and announced the rest of the race could be seen on ESPN 2.
