Turner Broadcasting Systems or TBS screwed up big time last night. Somehow they managed to cut the power to both their router and their back-up router carrying the American League Championship Series Game 6. Well done, geniuses. This meant nowhere in the country were the first twenty minutes of the game available on television. Sports bars everywhere faced near riots, as TBS showed "The Steve Harvey Show," and ran a crawl on the bottom of the screen saying, "We are experiencing technical difficulties."
Of course, Bud Selig's force of used cars salesmen had their collective heads up their asses again, claiming that they were, "unaware there was a problem until the broadcast failed to come on the air." That is Major League Baseball's administration in a nutshell for you; clueless, helpless and oblivious. Good work nimrods!
Man, the Heidi game is almost a depressing reference insofar as it reminds me of an era when it was actually respectable to like the Raiders. :(
