I really wish I could make it to it. I had today off but decided not to go because of the rain threat and because gas is so darn expensive right now. And tomorrow I've got classes in the morning.

I was there today and I'm going back tomorrow:

Section 131, Row 14, seat 3

If anyone else is going and wants to say hello, that's where I'll be.

PM me if anyone wants to.

And my MLB extra innings was blacked-out :(

I called Comcast to complain because local games should only be blacked-out if it's playing on network TV.

I tried to use that argument last year for MLB.TV, but it didn't work. They said there was nothing they could do and that it was up to the team in the region to decide who gets blacked out, and it doesn't really make a difference if it's televised or not. And it really sucks when the Sox play Detroit and there is no Detroit telecast of the game, because I can't watch the game at all then. If it's not on TV, what exactly is being blacked out?

I had the same problem with MLB.TV yesterday over here in Grand Rapids but then it suddenly started working during the first inning. :?:

Anyone see today's lineup yet? Just wondering if Ozzie is playing the regulars or going with a Jerry Manuel "We won the first two games, so I will play the scrubs b/c the third game doesnt matter" lineup.

Yup, it's not like they are taking business away from the station. Well, today's game didn't tape either. And the Indians game isn't on MLB extra innings either...it's all hockey. Bleh.

Great game...very exciting...just glad we walked away with the win and the sweep.
