Shut out from the baseball playoffs
We aren't getting any of the first round major league baseball playoffs on television here since they are all on TBS in the states, and MCV doesn't have a TBS feed. The 1:00 and 4:00 NFL games weren't on this weekend because AFN, which supplies the game, did some kind of Direct TV "Inside the 20 yard line" feed MCV can't use. They show games with teams with the ball inside the 20. This problem should be fixed this weekend I was told by MCV. The NFL has an internet package for the games for international residents, but they won't allow us to buy it because we are a U.S. Commonwealth. I have a bad feeling the internet baseball package is the same. This all absolutely stinks for me as a sports fan. Getting a new Taco Bell, as the sign by the KFC near Payless Supermarket announces, doesn't console all that much, but at least Mark McDonald, a freak for the Bell, will be happy.
