It’s a shame that big money has taken over sports where people like myself can’t afford to watch sports on television anymore, let alone go to an actual game.
I cannot afford $90 a month for cable or satellite television, which is what I paid for DirecTV before things got bad for me financially. (I make a living driving a school bus.)
I followed the Pirates all season last year on the radio since it is a slower game and easy to follow on the radio, like the old days.
I lost interest in the Penguins. I was looking forward to relaxing over the holidays watching some college bowl games, especially the Pitt-Bowling Green game, which I thought for sure would be on network television.
I have a converter box to watch local channels, but it was broadcast on ESPN.
Unfortunately, I missed a great game and will miss others.
I guess it’s only a matter of time before I won’t be able to watch the Steelers either.
I guess I’ll have to find some other interests.
