Default ESPN-2 - non-stop showing of "Basketball: A Love Story" today

I've seen some good programming so far, including the story of how Jack Twyman cared for a fallen NBA teammate (Maurice Stokes - who had a bad head injury), the early days of women's basketball, Al McGuire's last game, etc.

I'd rather watch that than the Syracuse marathon on ESPNU right now. And the even includes a retrospective of the screw-job in the 1972 Olympics. I was only 14 and I still hate the people involved with the "fix." That included some mole-like head of FIBA who was dying to have someone other than the USA win it.
