Shame on MLB channel
Today they let us know that A-Roid used steroids, testing positive back in 2003. Big news, to be sure, but damn did they have to hammer that bit of news in. They were scheduled to show a game from the 90's when Randy Johnson struck out 19, and later a special on Roberto Clemente, or at last that's what the info on my TV menu said.
Instead, they gave us constant coverage of the news that A-Roid did steroids, even rerunning the same commentary and Bob Costas interview at least 3 times, instead of showing the scheduled programming.
Note to MLB: This type of news is what your bottom of the screen ticker is for. Tell us once. We do not need to hear it 30,000 times in a day. I had been very happy with the MLB channel. They have great ideas, and have brought in outstanding on-air talent. But today's programming decision simply sucked a whole ton of ass. Whoever is responsible for that decision, I hope you are reminded that it sucked ass at least as many times as you informed us that A-Roid used steroids.
On the bright side, I don't think anyone will bother calling him A-fraud again.
