Blacked Out?!

Imagine my dismay as I turned on my TV and turned it to Prime Ticket. Time Warner had recently taken over the local cable station recently, but I hadn't noticed any differences. Until now. I put it on channel 61 and up came the Seattle vs. Kansas City game. Who wants to watch this match-up.

The game has been blacked out. My roommate called the cable company and was told the game was not sold-out.

No sell-out no game.

Needless to say, I was in shock. This is one of the most pivotal games of the year. They are playing a rival divisional team for a spot in the playoffs. How could they not show this game? And how could this game not be a sell-out? Something is fishy here.

So I sit around steaming in front of the computer as I keep track of the game. I see that Lowe has struggled a bit, but is able to hold down the fort. There is no score after 3 innings. Then, out of chance, I decide to check Prime Ticket one last time.

Presto! The game is on.

Whew! That was close. I was about to go crazy. I got some chores to do while the game is on. There is nothing like folding the laundry as Vinny calls a third strike.

Go Blue!
