There's Just Too Much TV, and The Cleveland Indians Aren't Helping.

By: The Dude on the Right
Only a few days into the fall television season, and I am quickly realizing that I am screwed because now baseball is getting in the way. Pretty much having lived in the Chicago area longer than I lived in the Cleveland area, I aligned myself with the Cubs. But at the beginning of this baseball season, the Chicago White Sox were going crazy, and it was just baseball that was fun to watch. My Cleveland Indians weren't doing all that great, and lord knows the Cubs were all over the map that you couldn't get around them, and I'm not saying my allegiance shifted from the Cubs to the White Sox, but I would find it cool to get a playoff team that seemed destined to go all the way, so I started rooting for the Sox. But then a couple of funny things happened. First, the White Sox started not playing so well. Second, the Indians started playing phenomenal baseball, and on sports talk-radio all over Chicago, everyone was worried about the Indians. And now look, the Tribe took the first game of this huge series against the Sox, and if you look at their remaining schedules, the Indians look poised to make one of the greatest comebacks in baseball history while the White Sox fans will no longer be able to make fun of the Cubs and their '69 demise, because, well, their demise may rank right back up there in the baseball disaster record books.

But that's not why I'm screwed. Nope, tonight the ballgame is on, but in conflict with many another show. I've got "The Biggest Loser," the season finale of "Big Brother 6," the premiere of "My Name is Earl" and "The Office," not to mention the conflict with the damn "Dancing With the Stars" dance-off, and the conclusion of "Rock Star: INXS." Sure, I've got a TIVO, and an old VCR, but I don't think that is going to cut it. I was trying to get around it, but dammit, I might have to look into getting another TIVO, or the digital recorder from my cable company, or just throw all of my TV's out the window and read a book instead. The latter will never happen, but for now, all I know is that for my television viewing this Tuesday evening, I'm screwed.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!
