also duty-free guys falling over and grabbing their shins
For those of you with Directv, they are having a free trial of the NHL Center Ice package from now until 10-23-11. Looks like this weekend is all Detroit sports! Started off great last night!
Anyone out there a DirecTV subscriber who keeps getting hosed by the Big Ten games getting shoved to the ESPN alternate channel? This has happened almost every week with the absolute worst being the Michigan-Michigan St game. It wouldn't be a big deal if DirecTV offered the ESPN Alternate in HD but of course they DON'T! UNACCEPTABLE!!!
So here I am stuck watching in standard def the Wisconsin-Iowa game, the only game I was planning on sitting down to watch today, while Nebraska-Oklahoma St is on ABC (ok, fair enough) and GT-Clemson is on ESPN. Awesome.
Seriously, if ABC/ESPN is going to keep showing 3 games in the same time slot by bumping the 3rd to ESPN Alternate I think I'm going to go crazy. Anyone else out there outside the BIg Ten footprint (I'm in St. Louis, MO btw, not exactly outside the Big Ten footprint but still getting screwed regularly) getting hosed by this crap?
