TBS is showing a re-run of the Steve Harvey Show. I don’t even know what that is. My boyfriend had to spell it for me.


Right about now, those mowhawked, blue-haired, cowbell-ringin’ Rays fans are standing and screaming, “NOT IN OUR HOUSE, MUTHAF*CKAS!”

Right about now, the Red Sox are slappin’ some extra pine tar on their helmets and spittin’ their chaw on the dugout steps.

But I am watching a man with a mustache crack jokes to a laugh track due to “technical difficulties.”

“Please stand by,” they’re telling me.  And I’m telling them, “THERE’S ONLY ONE OCTOBER, A**HOLES!”

  1. If this is TBS’s fault, then the silver lining is that they will never get the playoffs ever again. Back to the FOX crew, which seems clever and professional in comparison! Yeah!

  2. OMG after the playoffs, lets boycott TBS. MAKE THEM PAY!!!!
    This is sad.

  3. Sarah Green says:

    Yes! I would gladly endure hours of inane and, at times, borderline offensive commentary than ACTUALLY MISS THE GAME. This is the one unpardonable offense.

    And ESPN.com is running an error on this computer (my work laptop) and mlb.com needs to download a special flash plugin (it turns out, I am not the admin of my work laptop—-crap).

    (I brought my work laptop to Maine for the weekend.)

  4. Sarah, unless of course it’s Joe Morgan giving his opinions on the game… I always love hearing how “well they need to score to win this game” commentary… sometimes I almost think it’s worth missing baseball than listening to that idiot. But feel lucky, at least you could watch part of the game. I don’t have cable and all the bars around here would rather watch college football.

  5. “Two circuit breakers in our Atlanta transmission operations tripped, causing the master router and its backup — which are necessary to transmit any incoming feed outbound — to shut down,” TBS spokesman Sal Petruzzi said in a statement.

  6. Sarah, are you saying there is something wrong with men on tv with mustaches?

    correct me if I’m wrong, but the Eck sports a mustache, and well, the Eck is the Man.
