I'm seriously pissed off that the Red Sox/Rays series is being shown only on TBS. I canceled my cable earlier this year since I watch very little TV. Really, baseball consisted of 90% of what I watched. I thought at least the playoffs would be on regular TV (as they usually have been in the past), but I the Division Series were on TBS. I listened to the games on the radio, thinking that when the ALCS came around, I could at least watch it on TV then. Someone told me that both League Championship Series would be on Fox (which I hate, but it's better than nothing), but I found out this morning that the ALCS is on TBS also! Aaargh!
Is cable TV really so universal that they can put these games on a channel where not everyone can see them? I'm really disappointed about this.
I'm not going to go over to a friends place, or to a bar, because these games don't end till like 1 in the morning and I don't want to be out that late.
That's another thing... Why the hell do these games start so late? Both Tampa and Boston are in the Eastern time zone, so there's no reason why games can start at a reasonable time. ESPN says that game 1 of the ALCS is scheduled to start at 8:37 PM. That's crazy. I feel especially bad for the kids who have been following their teams all year, whose parents won't let them stay up late enough to see the end of the game. Why does MLB shut off its future fan base like this?
