    Same reason they show NASCAR - to **** people off and start a debate about what is to be on ESPN - that's my theory anyway

    probably production cost vs ratings.

    Airing a crappy basketball game is probalby lot more expensive than playing that poker crap for the same rating.

    I, for one, would much rather watch poker than baseball. I'm sure that factors into their programming decisions.
