NBC 9’s Beau Bagley Discusses The Downtown Ballpark Fiasco, The NBA Playoffs, NHL Playoffs, And Mayweather Vs. Alvarez
Welcome to another edition of Deep Dish Sports with the Iceman Brandon Cohn.
Today's show includes a discussion on the downtown ballpark and how City Hall voted 5-3 to approve $52.8 in bonds to fund the ballpark, and they decided to reject a request for $10 million more.
We also talk about how they officially broke ground to begin building the new ballpark today, and what kind of an impact it will have on El Paso.
We discuss the Eastern Conference Finals and how we feel the ageless Spurs will perform in the Finals.
Beau and I break down the Blackhawks vs. Kings series and the Bruins vs. Penguins series as well.
Finally, we talk about the upcoming Mayweather vs. Alvarez fight.

"First off, we had Major League Baseball representatives in the city of El Paso today, that's never happened before in terms of a downtown stadium. Had that not been pushed through, we would have never had Major League Baseball representatives, we wouln't have minor league baseball representatives, and wouldn't have had a new future for downtown El Paso as we know it."
"The Spurs are clicking at the right time, this could be their last go around so to speak with their age and team complexity."
