Opening Day Disappointment

When I first got to South Korea I was very excited to find out that a 7 pm MLB game back home would be a late morning start here.  I thought this was great.  I don’t go to work till 2pm, so that would mean I could catch a game before work.  After doing a little digging, it turns out that South Korea is one of 3 countries where live games on mlb.tv are blacked out until 90 minutes after the game ends.  Okay so that means I just have to stay off the baseball sites during work and watch a game after work.  I am usually up until 3 or 4am anyway.

Well this all started well last night.  After work on Monday, I picked up some dinner and came home to catch the Red Sox/Yankees game.  It was nice to see the opening game and even nicer to see the Yankees lose.  It’s always a good day when the Yankees are in last place, even if it is after only 1 game.  It was a good game too.  The Yankees start of strong but the Red Sox come back late to take game 1.

With many of the games played on Monday during the day, it meant I could catch a game before work on Tuesday since they would finish in time for me to watch the archived game.  I was excited this morning when my alarm went off.  I knew I would soon be watching the Braves game, but that was not to be.  Opening day is a big deal to me.  I am like a kid at Christmas.  I used to take the day off every year so I could either go to the Rangers game, or watch as much as I could on TV.  They should not only get rid of the DH, but they should also make Opening Day a national holiday.

So, I get up this morning ready to watch the Braves start the season off.  This is the best I have felt about the team in years.  I really think they can compete for a playoff spot, and they have the chance to do some damage once they get there.  My excitement was quickly foiled.  MLB.tv is down this morning.  Nobody is able to watch live or archived games.  Meaning thousands of fans overseas and at home cannot watch games like they planned.  Of all the days not to have the site working, Opening Day has to be the worst.

I am still holding off to watch the Braves game till after work tonight.  I broke down and saw the Ranger highlights and that looked like a great game.  The Rangers were no-hit for 6 1/3 innings and then pulled off a 9th inning comeback to win the game with a bases loaded walk off single from Salty.  That’s a great way to start the year off.  I hope they continue winning and make their way into the playoffs for the first time since in over a decade.

Get your act together MLB.tv.  I am really going to be hot if I get home from work in 9+ hours and still can’t watch the Braves game.  The hardest part will be going the 9+ hours without seeing the score.

There are three things in my life which I really love: God, my family, and baseball. The only problem - once baseball season starts, I change the order around a bit. ~Al Gallagher, 1971
