It's pretty hilarious... from SMith:
"So Jose didnít go on the trip this week, he and his wife are sitting around the house and all of sudden one of them realizes, Ďhey, I donít think we can watch the Washington game because of this TV problem I read about in Doug Smithís blog.í
(Okay, maybe I made up that Doug Smithís blog part).
ĎWhatever are we going to do.í
He gets his wife to call the Evil Cable Provider and finds out that, yes, because he only gives Rogers a billion dollars a month for cable, internet and phone, the Evil Cable Provider is squeezing TSN for money and havenít picked up a network that the majority of the country can see.
(Okay, maybe itís not a billion but go check your Evil Cable Provider bill).
Off he trundles to the ACC to watch the game in the so-so comfort of the teamís locker room (itís nice, but itís not home). Too bad he didnít know some of us were down the street watching it, that would have been a hoot.
Someone asked Jose yesterday whether he used his name in the call, thinking Evil Cable Provider might have done something had it known someone of his stature was looking for some resolution to this idiotic conflict.
Yeah, right. You think Evil Cable Provider, or TSN, or Maple Leaf Sports, gives a hoot? Nah, neither do I. "
