...google didn't show anything for Dallas today. My search was really to find out which of the 4 teams playing today had any local press coverage TODAY.

You can't go by Google alone. Check our listing of today's articles at http://www.oursportscentral.com/services/headlines/

We found ones in the Jacksonville, Quad City, Rochester and Rockford papers.

Preeths, do you have some sort of a search engine to find the links for you? I find a few you miss but you have most of them.

And I think the PBL needs to work on getting it's attendance up 125 ain't going to cut it.

True. But going in, I figured Chicago, the McGinn teams, and Dallas would be weakest at the gate. McGinn's teams are dependible, have pretty good venues, and have talent. I just don't know why he'd wait until now to hire a marketing person. Hopefully that isn't also the case in Rockford. (But, it probably is.)

Jacksonville's crowd was fairly solid though. I suspect Reading will draw a pretty good crowd tonight, Maryland will fall in the middle, and Rockford will bring up the rear. Maryland is having a TV at the game for the Redskins game (which should help a little) and they said online ticket sales are strong on their blog.

heavesrock, we do a combination of searches, including a manual search of many papers. If you ever see anything we miss, please drop me a line.
