    Baseball

    I dont watch a ton of baseball, but when spring springs, I'm ready to take in a game on T. V.
    In Detroit it was good old channel 2 [[Fox) that covered a ton of games through the season. So, true to form, I was able to see the Tiger's win their opener on channel 2. And then....
    .it all disappeared. I couldn't find a game to save my life. The channels that had the game, I found I was blocked out of. I called my cable service to find it was necessary to purchase the sports package to get the Tiger games, all under the umbrella of Bally Sports. They control EVERYTHING! Does this not smack of a monopoly and how do they get away with it

    Just think, though, you can now watch curling, bocce ball, ping pong, bowling and "women's" sports for no extra charge.

    How come you can get golf for free?

    There's always bootleg if you don't feel bad about it.

    Spoiler alert: I don't feel bad about it. And I watch almost every NBA, NCAA and NFL game I want [[not a big MLB fan).
