ESPN2 and USA 94

I just found out today that my cable company will not be offering ESPN2
before the end of the year. This sucks - 7 of the WC games are on ESPN2.

I seem to remember reading something here on r.s.s about a method for
putting pressure on the cable company to make them carry ESPN2. Is this
just wishful thinking on my part? Can somebody please mail me more
information.

Even though 8 of the matches will be shown first on ESPN2 (7 live, 1 taped),
ESPN will have all of them tape-delayed.  There is NO NEED to have ESPN2
to get all 52 matches (ABC has 11, ESPN has the other 41 with 29 live.)

Speak to the marketing manager of your cable company and tell him/her you
want ESPN2.  Write a letter to the general manager of your cable company
and tell him/her you want ESPN2.  Have your friends who are either
soccer or ice hockey fans to do the same.  Start a petition drive.  Etc.
Good Luck!  Hopefully you will have ESPN2 in about 6-12 months if you
get to work now.
