That Red Sox/Yankees rivalry is so quaint, isn’t it? Those folks back east and their cute little states and dense urban-wasteland cities — nothing much but sports to lift their spirits in the hellholes they call home. Well, sports and prodigious amounts of alcohol and drugs, but never mind. Of course, the Eastern SPorts Network plays up the Sox/Yanks like crazy, as does MLB itself, presenting their first game as the only one on “opening day.”
And then we have the *real* opening day, which is today, April 5th.
Dodgers vs Giants. 1:15pm Pacific Time.
Now *that’s* a rivalry.
One problem, though: who the hell’s bright idea was it to start the game at lunch when I’m at work? Probably the online MLB.TV. The bastards! What a hustle.
