Sports on TV

[ #14294 ]

Tomorrow morning's baseball game, the Seattle Mariners at the Boston Red Sox, will not be televised on Seattle television. It is at Boston, so blackout rules don't apply; so why is it not televised? They just, apparently, decided not to show it on television. Maybe they thought they would not have enough viewers on a Monday morning to justify a broadcast, but in a real sports town, a fan would consider it an insult that the game was not on TV, even if said fan were unable to actually watch it.

What sort of sports wasteland did I move to?

    Boston is a great baseball ciy. Seattle only recently got the religion in 1995. You'll find though, that actually going to games at Safeco field is a joy. Sports TV in Seattle is weird. I friend of mine was sent to Japan for a few months last year and they televised *more* games there than here. Another thing is that we love Dave Niehaus the sportscaster. He's a great radio voice so I don't miss the telecast. If you think Mariner's TV is bad, just wait until the Seahawk season starts. No sell out means no T
    • Luckily, as part of my deal for moving out here, I acquired the rights to purchase subscriptions to NFL Sunday Ticket and NHL Center Ice, so I won't have to worry about local TV for such things. I'll get every Patriots game, and upwards of 70 Bruins games.
