Avails?  WSMN??  What do they do, run PSAs there...their spot load is close
to zilch.  IMHO it's no big loss...for some little bush league team, the
Pride seem to think they're the Red Sox or something, that they can jerk
everyone around and they'll come back for more.  Our station got burnt by
them a couple summers ago.
