A Fan's Programming Notes

For some seasons now, the Red Sox cable outlet NESN has provided a condensed replay of the previous night or day's game in the afternoon. This year, they've added to the broadcast, offering the previous game's pregame show as well.

I can't blame NESN for this absurd horror. Revenue is revenue, and any option's better than Charlie Moore's Outdoor Adventure. The audience, on the other hand....

Look, sports fans provided me with a decent and enjoyable living for many years. I go to extremes to tolerate their many quirks, foibles, and psychoses. But there has to be a line drawn somewhere, and here's the place.

I'm sorry. Anyone who voluntarily watches the pregame show for yesterday's ballgame has provided their heirs with the evidence needed to demand and win a competency hearing.
