Dear MLB, TBS, and Whomever Else, I didn't want to watch the Chicago Cubs anyway!

By: The Dude on the Right
Dear Major League Baseball, The Chicago Cubs, TBS, and whomever else set the TV schedule for the upcoming baseball Divisional Series,

Thank you!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
And let me write it again - Thank you!

I would like to thank you for scheduling the first two Cubs games for the Divisional Series at a time when there is pretty much no way in hell I'm going to watch, and even more importantly at this stage of my Fall TV season, I won't miss any of my old favorite, nor new favorite TV shows. Yup, you scheduled the first two games on Wednesday and Thursday nights, to start at 9PM CDT. Sure, first pitch is supposed to be at 9:07ish PM, or so someone said on the radio this morning (and out of sheer curiosity I might try to sneak and see when that first pitch actually gets thrown tomorrow night, probably during a commercial break of a new episode of "South Park"), but even in the best of chances it would be a major miracle for the games to finish by 11PM, and even a minor miracle for them to finish by Midnight. As much as I love the Cubs I don't have the late nights available for these two games unless I wanted to be a zombie at my morning meetings on Thursday and Friday, and besides, if the Cubs do win both games, the game that really matters will be at 5PM on Saturday evening, where hopefully the Cubs will clinch their series at The Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field!

Also, with those games not starting until after 9PM, I'll have no conflict with my normal slate of Wednesday nor Thursday night TV viewing and TiVoing. I'll have no worries of missing "Bionic Woman," "Survivor," "My Name is Earl" & "Smallville" (both on TiVo delay), "30 Rock," and anything else coming along those two nights.

And sure, as a transplanted North Coast resident (Lorain, OH - Represent!), I am also cheering on the Cleveland Indians, but my mom pretty much figures the New York Yankees already have that series wrapped up, so I figure why bother watching. Even so, their games are actually early enough they have the potential to be over by my TV time anyway.

So, again, baseball and TV folks, Thank you! I didn't want to watch the Chicago Cubs anyway!
