Tonight the Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies play in the Rose Garden. The Blazers are one inevitable loss away from playoff elimination and pretty much just playing out the string. But the Trail Blazer broadcast feed is scheduled to be picked up by NBA TV and carried nationally -- or at least to all cable and satellite providers who carry that network. We often take sports broadcasts and the people who do them for granted. I mean, you turn on the TV and there they are... at your service. But they quite obviously have their own lives and their own burdens.
