Milwaukee @ New York

Milwaukee @ New York

Noticed this because I clicked on the sports section and thought it was baseball because I knew the Brewers were playing the Mets. Just thought it was weird... enjoy. :-b

So get this!

OK, so I have Comcast cable... bummer. Rates went up this week AGAIN and now I'm paying 100 bucks a month for standard cable and cable internet; up 20 bucks from what I was paying.

But for the first week of baseball, I had a FREE preview of MLB Extra Innings. This was great, and the free preview was from April 2-9. It sucks that I live in FOUR markets... that's right, FOUR, so those games are all blacked out and they're not always available. I live in the market for the Phillies, Pirates, Orioles and Nationals.

Anyway, it is April 14 and I still have access to all of the MLB Extra Innings games. This is blowing my mind. I haven't done anything and I was so sad when April 10 rolled around; but I checked just for fun and sure enough the games were all still available. Now it's the 14 and I still have all the games. Now I don't know if this is unethical or stealing. I suppose Ned Flanders would immediately be on the phone with Comcast explaining the situation, but come on! I'm getting ripped off by those corporate jerks and I am enjoying my Extra Innings free of charge without any complaints.

So, in any case, the game is just starting after an hour and half rain delay. And here it is on Channel 776; Milwaukee and New York.... and I'm going to enjoy every second of it.

Enjoy the free games guys! ;-D Must be nice, but I can't complain, as I still get my fill of games each year. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Well crap, I thought I was special... If Comcast catches wind of this Extra Innings thing, they'll not only cut us off faster than Louis XVI cut off Marie-Antoinette's head, they're probably try and charge our asses for it.

Viva free baseball for everyone!!! America's pasttime for all!!!!

LET'S GO METS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
