Last night, Carlos Zambrano of the Chicago Cubs threw the club’s first no hitter since 1972. I would have loved to have seen the game. The entire thing, not merely the last three outs of the ninth inning, but I couldn’t.
ESPN in its infinite wisdom decided that instead of watching the Cubs/Astros game–a game with playoff implications for both teams–that all of America would rather see the Chicago White Sox play the fourth place Detroit Tigers. Um, yeah, right. If they’d been smart, they’d have kept their trucks driving north and shown the game that any child could have told them would be the better of the two.
So instead of being stressed out watching the Big Z go inning after inning without giving up a hit, I was forced to follow it on MLB’s Game Day feature. It was good enough to let me know what was going on, but it’s not the same as watching the game.
Thanks ESPN. You just rock. Or something.
