    European badminton fans rejoice !!

    I can't remember when such a major TV-channel such as Eurosport broadcasted badminton but they will be showing the last of the star-grade tournaments, the 1* International Open from Saarbrücken, Germany, 2-7 Dec. Don't ask me why they decided to show this event and why the WC etc. - to the best of my knowledge - went unnoticed.

    To those who don't know what eurosport is: It's probably the largest sportschannel in europe, available freely all over europe on satellite.

    Oh, and I'll tape it for all the others who can't receive eurosport even though I haven't figured out how I should make it available. I don't have the kind of bandwidth that swijaya0101 has..

    This is *wonderful* news! Anyone ever recall watching badminton on eurosport in recent times?

    Go to www.eurosport.com and click on the "TV Schedule" on the top right and then select "3/12". Check 15.15.. Hey, check 4/12, 5/12 and 7/12 too, just noticed that they're trying to cover the whole tournament.. note that it says "live" too!
