This isn't Sox-related, but it's the same story basically: I was at Murphy's in Champaign during the 2010 NBA/NHL playoffs with a table of about 10 people. The Hawks were playing Vancouver, and the Bulls were also on at the time, and each game was on approximately half of the TVs in the bar. When the 1st intermission for the Hawks came, the manager turned all the TVs to the basketball game. OK, fine, whatever. No big deal. When the 2nd period was about to start, I politely asked to have half the TVs turned back to the hockey game. The manager actually said "oh, hockey's a sport now?" and wouldn't change them back. So in response I took my big group and went to another bar, where we ended up spending the rest of the evening (and a lot of money on beer). Some people just don't know how to run a business.
