Daisuke Matsuzaka took a no hitter into the 8th inning tonight, which would have been an awesome 40th birthday present for me.
IF Bud Selig wasn't the Lord of the Dinks and struck a deal with FOX to get exclusive rights to certain Saturday nights, forcing me to watch the Yankees/ Mets game while I missed a chance at seeing history happen. And not only me, but several of my Red Sox friends across the country. Apparently the morons that run FOX assume we'd all rather watch a game from New York instead.
To say this has aggravated me is like saying the Oil Tanker explosion off the Gulf is a minor situation. I pay over $160 dollars a year to watch the Red Sox and because MLB and FOX think THEY know what game I'd like to watch better than I do, I missed tonight's game.
The fact he gave up a hit is beside the point. In fact, in my feeble mind I'm convinced that if I HAD been able to watch the sheer will of RSN positive vibes would have given him the no hitter.
Yes, I'm aware that sounds crazy. And frankly? I don't give a flip.
Tomorrow morning, I'm starting the site www.firebudseligbecausehe'samoneygrubbingdink.com.
