Everyone loves to win. Last night the Giants won the game with the Mets. Today in the office the mood was lighter, there were more smiles, and people were huddled in small groups discussing the plays.
I rushed home last night to see the game on TV. Nada. None of the major networks was televising it. I was shocked.
I checked the Internet for live streaming. Nada. I had to download flash players and create accounts in order to see the game.
What once was the right of every American to see baseball on TV for free has been usurped by grubby hungry cable companies in order to make more money.
That’s just plain un-American.
It’s time for a revolt.
Let’s all go to our local sports bar and view the games there. That will teach these cable guys they can’t mess with the public like that.
The bars would love the business, and we’d enjoy watching with others who are mad with us. Besides, it’s more fun being together. After a few drinks, and lots of peanut shells on the floor, we can be as noisy as we want together.
Calvin says, “I’m mad with you. It’s like removing all the rabbits from a field. It leaves you bereft.”
