I didn't realize they were still a team and I live in Texas.

I was a young boy in the 80s, so I have to ask: were those uniforms considered ugly at the time, or were they ok?

From what I can tell by looking at old film, there were much worse.

Let me be perfectly clear: It truly should be illegal by MLB rules, if not by actual FCC guidelines, to not be able to watch your home team for every game somewhere.  I know this is all just a farking ploy to get people to get Comcast into the Texas market and all, but still, what kind of idiotic douche thinks it's okay to market a team with a network that essentially doesn't exist??  And that's before we even talk about not having a radio contract.  Seriously, WTF?

At least road games. Otherwise, the Rockies (in my case) are telling me my choice is (A) pay $75 plus a month for cable; (B) $0 for an illegal stream.

/yes I know most sports fans have cable, but with 1/2 the games on premium tiers, it's getting less and less worth it

I don't know.  I mean, I've had cable since the late 80s and NESN for about ten years now (NESN went basic cable when they finally stopped showing games on over-air TV), and I can't imagine what it would be like to not be able to watch mid-week Red Sox games.

AT&T UVerse is not available in my area so I'm forced to go with Comcast and I'm not too happy about it.

/Will not be watching any Astros games.

I can see Minute Maid Park from my window at work. It's a nice stadium. I look forward to watching the Angels hit moon shots there this season and for many seasons to come.

For bonus lulz, you can still call it Enron Field just to make locals cringe even more.

No worries, they will be on some second-tier cable package soon enough.

/but - with that $30/month-on-top-of-basic package you will not only get the Sox, but other great channels, like the Oprah Winfrey Network!

Well let's see how they do in the American League and maybe I will watch. Cool retro hat, too.
