Ok, so, as I write this, Cal’s opening round Pac-10 Tournament game is being played in Los Angeles. It’s also on TV, on one of Fox Sports Net’s myriad of channels, and I can’t watch it. Why the fuck not? I pay $130 a month to Comcast, in part for this huge cable package that’s absolutely useless to me. I get some 300 channels or something like that, and the one I actually want to watch comes up with a ‘Not Authorized’ message. What? Do I have to pay extra to watch this shit? What the fuck is that?
Oh, there’s a Cal Basketball game on right now, but it’s a replay of last Saturday’s shitty, shitty loss to Arizona State. Why the fuck would anyone want to watch that crap again? Even ASU fans have to admit it was some pretty poor basketball. I actually watched it for a while, thinking ‘here we go again…’ until I realized that I was watching the exact same crap again.
Then I checked the internet, and realized that we had an 18-point halftime lead, which made me feel better, except that now I actually want to watch the game, and can’t. And if we win tonight, I can’t watch tomorrow’s game, because it’s in the afternoon, and I have to work. Considering we would draw UCLA, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but still…
Those who’ve read this blog regularly know that I don’t swear much, but this situation is really pissing me off. Maybe if the team were better, I wouldn’t have to try so hard to see them on TV. One can only hope.
OK, lead was down to 8 there for a sec, but now it’s back up to 12. Go Bears!
