No one saw Eric Bledsoe's ridiculous game-winning 3 because the World Series was happening

Bledsoe could not have picked a worse possible time for an amazing shot.

Eric Bledsoe nailed this wild shot to give the Phoenix Suns their first win of the young NBA season.

But man, he could not have chosen worse timing. The Suns were playing the late game against Portland, and this absurd buzzer-beating three came right as Game 7 of the World Series between the Cubs and Indians was in the final few innings.

The game went into the 10th inning before Chicago won, breaking a 108-year championship drought. I wonder how many Suns fans tuned out to catch history being made for Game 7 instead? Case in point.

Eric, I just want you to know: we care. We really do. Just not right nOW BECAUSE THE CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES, HOLY SH**.
