Because a girl can reasonably watch every single game of the season.
One game a week. I can plan my life around that for six months. Of course, I have to exchange my Writers’ Theatre tickets because someone forgot the date of the bloody Super Bowl. But that’s what I’m saying – it can be done.
Also, there are only a few channels that broadcast pro football. Fox and CBS have the early games, NBC has the late game and ESPN has Monday night. Although now that I am thinking about it, I don’t quite have a handle on Thursday games. And I better figure it out because I am going to be in Fargo for ours.
But hockey. Geez. They just dropped the puck because the game is out west. You know I’m not staying up for this. (Ooooh. Score! Who the heck is Bryan Bickell?) And. The games are on odd channels, so I have to go to the website and find the name of the channel (Versus) and then figure out where that is on DirectTV (603 for future reference). Basketball isn’t quite as bad, as the Bulls land on WGN a lot, but still – the West Coast games.
And for the love of All that Does Not Suck, we have two baseball teams!
Sixteen Games. Three weeks of playoffs. Super Bowl. Done.
