I just watched the whole thing with no problem at all. Try upgrading your windows media player, that could solve the problem.

I'd suggest downloading Media Player 11, it's got an awesome new layout plus compatibility with many new file types.

I use XP so I wouldn't know, lol.

Vista is taking up to much CPU and I'd rather have a system running smoothly than have a better layout but a comp running on empty.

I have 2 (1.9 to be exact) GB of RAM. Vista won't work on a computer if it doesnt have atleast 512 MB of RAM... so if you have 1 GB of RAM (or less), Vista OS alone will easily use up atleast 40%, and youre listeing to music, surfing the web and chatting online (which I do sometimes) it will probably crash your computer

I have a 1.5 GB RAM for the record so I could switch up to Vista but I don't see the reason of having a slowed comp at this point.

IBL: Israel Baseball League strikes out after one year

Source: The Jerusalem Post

The much-hyped Israel Baseball League, which was slated to begin its second season June 22, has been cancelled for 2008 and its future is in jeopardy.

"There will be no league in 2008," Haim Katz, president of the Israel Association of Baseball, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

According to Katz, the league's problems stemmed largely from a number of Israeli creditors who, he said, had not been paid by the IBL.

"2008 is not happening, 2009 we're working on. Right now it's [nearly] the first of June, and there's no preparation. But there are many parties interested in reviving professional baseball [in Israel]."

The six-team IBL was founded by Boston-based businessman Larry Baras, and started play in the summer of 2007, featuring Jewish and foreign players selected by personnel director Dan Duquette, the former general manager of the Boston Red Sox.

Baras could not be reached for comment.

Its 10-week debut season in the summer of 2007 brought much fanfare but few fans, the great portion of whom were American olim or groups of Anglo youngsters in Israel for the summer.

It was marred by financial and organizational problems - from missed player payments to games cancelled early because of inadequate lighting.

Former New York Yankees pitcher Ken Holzman quit managing the Petah Tikvah Pioneers with one week left in the season, unhappy with the league.

Ten members of the team's advisory board, including former US Ambassador to Israel turned IBL commissioner Daniel C. Kurtzer and Yankees President Randy Levine, resigned in November, citing disappointment with the league's business operations.

The IAB is authorized by the Ministry of Science, Culture and Sports to grant licenses for professional baseball in Israel, in addition to coordinating amateur and international play.

Another startup, the Israel Professional Baseball League, headed by Maccabi Haifa basketball team owner Jeffrey Rosen, a former investor in the IBL, was expected to begin play this year. But, like the IBL, the IPBL is now also looking to 2009.

Martin Berger, president and COO of the IBL, said despite the IAB comments, he still had hope for a second season this year.

"[The IAB] created an issue, we hope we have resolved that issue," Berger said. "We don't think we've breached any agreements, and we're moving forward in cooperation with the IAB."

"We are working hard to secure enough funding to make sure that any debts that we had from the first season are paid off, and that we have enough financial backing to move ahead. We really intend on having a second season, we're trying to be financially and fiscally responsible."

Tel Aviv Lightning manager Ami Baran said he had also heard of hopes for an abridged schedule, but that a decision had not yet been made.

The league's Web site gives no indication of a postponed or shortened season, and publicizes January tryouts in Miami, along with "future tryouts" in the Dominican Republic and Los Angeles.

One of the board members who resigned, Professor Andrew Zimbalist, said as far as he knew, "the league is dead."

"The main difficulty last year was that there wasn't sufficient work on the ground to prepare the terrain and to familiarize people with what was going to happen," said Zimbalist, a pioneer in the field of baseball economics.

"There needs to be a lot more marketing - to introduce a new sport into a country, you need to promote it, and it wasn't adequately promoted. Once it got started, the communication system between the league and the potential fan base was not in place.

"I think that there is a lot of momentum and lot of interest that was established, and there is no reason why there can't be a successful league here in the long run. It has to be managed better and prepared better."

While the country has a burgeoning youth program, and the Israeli national team will compete for entry to the 2009 World Baseball Classic, the market for professional baseball was not developed - nor, it seems, was it cultivated, said Marvin Goldklang, an owner of several minor league baseball franchises, and a minority stakeholder in the Yankees.

"One of the things that was missing last year was a serious due diligence effort, focusing on both market and facility related issues, to assess the economic viability of professional baseball in Israel," said Goldklang.

"I do believe there is a future, provided it is structured and marketed in a manner more likely to connect with the broader Israeli population, than was the case last summer."


The Last Word: The inevitable failures of the IBL

Source: The Jerusalem Post

The news that the Israel Baseball League will not be returning for a second season this June was no big surprise considering the embarrassment of difficulties it faced last summer.

It was a sad end to what turned out to be a sorry affair which had many positives but in the end promised too much while delivering all too little.

The announcement confirmed the fears that the IBL, which had been over hyped and promoted for months up to its launch in June 2007, was nothing more than a badly organized disaster waiting to happen.

It is now time for what is left of the IBL management since the glut of resignations last November to take a wider perspective and realize just where they went wrong and how it would likely be only a good thing if the league does not come back in the same format as last year.

The problems were obvious from the beginning. Aside from Opening Day, which attracted over 3,000 supporters, there was hardly any interest from regular Israelis in a league which was run by Americans and almost exclusively for Americans.

Throughout the season the announcements were mostly in English, the Hebrew section of the official Web site was poor quality and the fields were difficult to get to. Israelis had little affiliation with the teams made up of players from around the world, just not Israel.

Added to that, there wasn't even a Jerusalem team although plans for one to be included in an expanded IBL for the 2008 season were announced a few months ago, before it became obvious that there will not be any such season.

Unfortunately it seems that the IBL has not considered taking this to heart and appears convinced that there is still a chance the league will continue in 2008. The main barrier could well be financial, and therefore overcome through a sudden monetary boost.

But, even if the league somehow manages to get itself together in just a few short weeks before the start of the new season it had scheduled for itself, it would be a foolish move.

The problems were deep and inbred from the start and, unless the league is made much more accessible for local supporters, it will continue to fail.

The IBL should take a leaf out of the book of what at first appeared to be its football sister, the Israel Football League.

Unlike the baseball league, the IFL is packed with locals playing in its four teams, encouraging far more fan involvement. That the games were played at Jerusalem's Kraft Stadium also helped, but if the IBL is to ever return and become a success it must start small rather than thinking big from the outset like it did last year and therefore setting it up for the all too inevitable fall from grace.

I'm checking the FIBA starting lineups and ratings for NBA Live 09

http://sports.ign.com/articles/895/895168p1.html

The starting lineups are all wrong and the ratings sucks...man they better change it before they release the game to the public or at least through an update...it would suck if they don't.

And lakers4sho, life in Japan is pretty good. But I've been here so long now that it's pretty much just normal life for me now. I came here as an English teacher, which is what I still do. That's how most people from America/England/Australia/NZ do it.

alright then

I was in the Basketball Hall of fame today, mainly to check out the Maccabi Tel Aviv exhibit. it was pretty good, but I expected a bit more.

the HOF's shop had 1 Jersey for sale, a medium Nikola Vujcic jersey for $160. apparently they sold out all the Mac TA jerseys, including the Carlos Arroyo ones (which doesnt make much sense, because his # isnt known yet)

There are about 3 or so NBA games broadcast on TV in Japan a week. They're usually on at like 1 a.m. So on TV, I'm lucky to catch as many as 5 Nugs games a year. So I have to rely on sopcast, etc.

Are there alot of NBA fans in Japan too?? Because if the fanbase is high, the TV stations should consider airing more NBA games.

Since you lived there for a long time, can you speak fluent Japanese now??

I can speak all right, but I'm not really fluent. I'm not literate at all (can't read more than the basics).

And when it comes to wanting more NBA broadcast here, you are preachin' to the choir, man. I'm always *****ing about that. But what can you do? :shrug: I could get satellite TV to get ESPN, but that's just not in the cards for me financially right now.
