  1. About time. But why aren’t *all* the games being shown like they are in West Memphis, Ark., and the surrounding area?

    As a Grizz fan living in Little Rock, it was great to watch Z-Bo and the rest of the guys take care of the Magic last night.

    • Cindy Lewis says:

      Awesome to see the Grizzlies on a big win streak! Have you found any places to watch the games in Little Rock? My husband and I are looking to watch the Orlando game next weekend somewhere.
