The same kind of impasse is happening today* with FOX and Cablevision in our area. And there is another big event (for some of us) going on tonight* that will probably accelerate the negotiation.
Game 1 of the NLCS between the Phillies and the Giants.
Sure, it's not going to get the same ratings as the Oscars. But baseball fans have been anticipating this game all week. A classic marquee pitching matchup between Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay. Last year's NL Cy Young winner vs. this year's winner. Well, Halladay hasn't won it yet, but it's pretty much a given that he will win it.
I'm gonna be super fucking pissed if I'm not gonna be able to watch it!
*I wrote this on Saturday morning. I'll post updates, both joyful and sad, as the day progresses. Huh?
UPDATE #1: 8:56 PM EST - They are still at an impasse. I am still pissed.
UPDATE #2: 10:23 AM EST (Sunday) - Still nothing. Less pissed. Mostly because I'm fighting a cold.
