Spike TV is airing a special edition of Game Head, covering the 07 World Cyber Games.  The show premiers tomorrow (Nov. 9th) at 11PM.  The event was a big deal this year and it got a lot of media coverage.  I think it's kind of ironic that this thing isn't on G4, but then again, that channel hasn't been about gaming for a few years now.
