I started today in a good mood. It's the real opening day. The Sox meet Detroit, in Detroit and although I'm not there, I can watch from the comfort of home without having to experience the post-apocalyptic atmosphere the Detroit provides it's citizens. Say what you will about my beloved Sox, their fans, and Boston. I don't care, we've probably earned all the malice you can provide. Now, I cancelled my cable because I was tired of the feeling of RAPE I had every time I looked at the bill. It was absurd to have to pay that much for something I rarely use. My Xbox, tablet, and internet can provide me with all the entertainment I need. Movies, TV, everything is available, only a "click" away. Enter NESN. The DEVIL, the most evil corporation since the ficticious Umbrella of Resident Evil fame. These douchebags have managed to secure the only rights to Red Sox games. I have no idea why I forgot this. I cannot watch my team play during the regular season because these mammoth succubi have denied MLB.tv, ESPN, and any other entertainment group the right to show the team play. I may have a stroke, heart attack, and homicidal episode all at once. FUCK NESN That unpleasant aside, the name of the thread is 2012 Boston Red Sox. With Bobby V taking over any thoughts?
