I confess. It's been a point of pride for me that we have five children and do not have television service of any kind. Most everything is available from Netflix these days, so a little patience and the willingness to be a season or two behind offers near perfect control over viewing choices and provides a commercial free home environment.
BUT... watching the Red Sox play the World Series only AFTER it is all said and done would be like renting news of the 2004 presidential election. Hhmm. No, thank you.
There are some events that you just want to experience along with American society. In order to do that, you need to experience them as they are happening and television really is the best way to do that. I thought of all this while driving home this afternoon, after having watched the first game of the series with my parents at their house and trying to figure out a way I could get television hooked up to my house before tonight's game.
Go Red Sox!
