Tonight, I was treated to a surprise on the television after I got home from work: only the second televised Yankee game of the new season and it was the first game broadcast on the New York station we get via DishTV. Quite a difference from yesterday’s 15-5 debacle. New starter A.J. Burnett had a no-no going through six, but in the bottom of the 7th, the Rays scored a pair to make the score even. By the ninth, the Bombers had made the score 7-2 capped off by Captain Jeter’s three-run dinger. I now see that the Yanks and Tigers are even in their respective divisions at 4-4; however, the Detroit-Chicago White Stocking game was postponed due to rain. And the Cubbies continue their winning ways at 5-2… GO CUBBIES!
For the past week or so, I have been rather surprised that neither ESPN station nor the New York affiliate were going to carry the opener at the new cathedral. I searched and searched the guide at Thursday afternoon at 1PM. I guess I should have checked the Ohio Sports channel. If I had realized that the Yanks were facing the Tribe from Cleveland, I would have checked it before tonight. So, following my shift Thursday afternoon… I just hope no one wants to watch soap operas.

The Cubs LOST yesterday 5-2. I was happy to turn the game off at 3-0 in the third when I had to run my errands. What, are you trying to rub it in? 🙂
Can’t win ’em all, and you know what? They haven’t lost a series yet! Today starts a 4-game series with St. Louis. Go Cubs!
But the post was from the 14th. I think I was referring to Sunday’s game. I wish the Cubbies and Yanks were on each other’s schedule during Inter-league play, but alas…
