You don't want to miss this week's edition of "Sports Overnight America" on the Sports Byline USA Radio Network. Cathy Parker of Project Alaska Turf will join us Friday night around 11:30 (Pacific). Cathy, a Jacksonville-area accountant, is trying to raise $500,000 to install a synthetic turf field for the Barrow High team. Yes, that's Barrow as in Alaska. Her appearance comes a week before the Whalers arrive in Florida to begin a training camp tour of the Lower 48, with other scheduled stops in North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama.
After the midnight hour on the Pacific Coast, Tim Griffin of the San Antonio Express-News will be our guest. Tim reported this week that Fox Sport Network was close to selling some of its Big 12 Saturday night night games to rival ESPN in an unprecedented deal that would result in wider national exposure for the conference. He will fill us in on those negotiations, along with tidbits from the NBA Western Conference playoff series between the San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns.
