NESN Still Won't Let You Watch

For the second consecutive day of Grapefruit League play, you can't watch your Boston Red Sox on NESN—or anywhere else. This time, it's the initial meeting with the Twins for the Mayor's Cup. The New Ownership Group (they will always be the NOG) thinks you'd rather watch infomercials and repeats of hockey games than brave the additional snowfall (about 6 inches in Andover, MA overnight) with baseball—what a ludicrous idea!

Those moron owners in the Bronx will be giving their fans a second straight telecast of the Yankees on the YES network on Sunday. So, again, how can the NOG claim to understand the passion of Red Sox Nation (the actual Nation, not the revenue producing gimmick they instituted) when they blackout games just when we need them most?

Meanwhile, enjoy Chef Tony's "Delicious Ten Minute Meals!" on NESN at 10AM this morning. And don't forget to tune into "Charlie Moore Outdoors" at 1PM. Hey, at least he might be fly fishing with a Red Sox player. It's your only chance to see them today.
