UPDATE: Hurricane Irene knocking the Yankees off TBS’ Sunday game

Aug 24, 2011, 1:01 PM EST

Irene

UPDATE: OK, I’m an idiot. They Yankees game is being knocked off TBS’ afternoon schedule and replaced with the Cubs-Brewers. ESPN is broadcasting the Angels-Rangers, which is decidedly NOT part of the dreaded East Coast Bias.  In my haste to cast ESPN as reluctantly giving up their Yankees fetish I pretty much, you know, ignored the facts. Eff me.

1:01 PM: ESPN — which normally moves heaven and Earth in order to put either the Yankees or the Red Sox on Sunday night baseball — has taken the Yankees off of Sunday night baseball this week due to the uncertainty surrounding Hurricane Irene.  In the place of the Yankees-O’s game which was previously planned: the Cubs-Brewers.

Glad to see the Brewers getting some more national exposure.  Too bad that the thing making it possible has a decent chance of making millions of dollars in property damage and possibly killing people.

    Funny, ESPN’s website lists the Angels-Rangers game as its Sunday night broadcast. Which kind of makes sense, given that it’s the only game on Sunday between two contending teams.

    The tweet you linked to says the game was bumped from TBS, not ESPN.

    I never saw a schedule that had Yankees-O’s other than 1:35 Sunday. Good, because i hate Sunday 8PM games anyway.

    Gee, that one spaghetti model prediction has Irene slowly working her way up the length of Florida’s shaft. All the other models just show Irene soaking wet and rimming the coast. You see that?

      LOL!!! I wonder if this weather model will affect the perfomance of either Furbush or Fister this weekend.

    Hate is like a bag of bricks, you just need to set it down…

    i wish we had an UPDATE or EDIT function in the comments section…so that when we say a guy is left-handed, and base our entire f’ing comment on that guy being left-handed…then he is really right-handed, we can put in an UPDATE or EDIT it…

    It’s good to be God I guess :D

      What if God was one of us?
