Sorry wrestling fans, Yanks have the edge

By

As you know, the Yankees play a number of games which are broadcast on My9. These games often fall on Friday nights. Also appearing Friday nights on My9: WWE Friday Night Smackdown. Now, I remember back in the day when the WWF (oops) was preempted on the USA network for the Westminster Dog Show, so the Yankees have to prevail in a broadcast conflict, right? Yes they do. As it stands now, My9 will broadcast the Yanks on Fridays June 26, August 28, and September 25. Smackdown will be delayed, though My9 will show it in its entirety on Saturday.

    • andrew

    HHH says “Suck it!” to the Yanks and My9. The sad part is that I don’t even get My9 EITHER. Lucky *ucking me! No MLB Network. No NFL Network. No My9!

      • E-ROC

        Play with my kids, blog a little (though I haven’t blogged lately), watch basketball and football, take my oldest kid to school, and do homework. lol.

          You my friend, need a heavy dose of MLB Network and NFL Netwwork

      What kind of shit cable package are you working with

      • E-ROC

        It’s really the cable company, by the way its Time Warner, but I think its the location. I’m in Mountain Home, ID, basically in the middle of nowhere.

            Man, its about 7,000 less people right now. We have a ton of fast food restaurants and a couple of Chinese restaurants. There are about three car dealerships. Basically, it takes about 25 minutes to drive through the entire town, residential areas included.

              Sounds interesting. What happened to all those people who left?

              • E-ROC

                If I had to guess, they probably moved to Boise which is about 40 miles away. I think Boise is the largest city in Idaho and is home to the Blue Turf of Boise State.

            • Mike Pop

              It’s only 5.2 miles long? Damn, lol.

              • E-ROC

                Seriously. You don’t even need a car. You can just walk to your destination. It’s that bad. My base is about 10 miles away from the city.

                • Mike Pop

                  Do you know everyone in your town?

                • http://liberalmusings.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

                  I am assuming you hate being there.

                • E-ROC

                  Naw, I don’t know anyone in that town. I know most on base though.

                  Yup, I have been ready to leave since arriving here last year from Turkey.

                • http://liberalmusings.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

                  Your story only gets more interesting! Are you Turkish, or did you come back from a sabbatical/vacation and land in Idaho?

                • E-ROC

                  African American. I was born in Baltimore, MD. My wife got orders to Incirlik Air Base in Adana, Turkey. We lived there for two years, then she got orders to here. I was in the military from 2002-2006. Air Force is the branch.

                • http://liberalmusings.wordpress.com Pablo Zevallos

                  Wow. Well, for my part, thanks for serving out country and helping to keep it safe.

                  If this isn’t some sort of secret, can you answer this question: Is the nuclear weaponry that was in Turkey during the Cold War and ordered dismantled by JFK as part of the agreement over the end of the Cuban Missle Crisis no longer there?

                • E-ROC

                  Idk. I was a civilian and a spouse while over there. My wife was the active military member.

            That’s why I want the Yankees to trade for him.

                Shit, the inventor of Morse code, Brian Kenny, Sterling Morrison, and Brian Regan are all from Poughkeepsie. MY town kicks ass.

                  I got Bon Jovi, Dule Hill, the chick from Clerks and Dave “Snake” Sabo from Skid Row.

                  Poughkeepsie is also the home of the Bell brothers – weight lifters, football players, wrestlers, but most importantly, avid steroid users. Chris Bell made a movie documenting steroid use and focused on his two brothers as the main subjects. I’m pretty sure one of them died recently at the age of 37… what was this like for the locals?

                • jsbrendog

                  poughkeepsie is also where marist is and where my dad’s night club used to be in late 80′s early 90′s.

                  WHOO LET’S DANCE!!!

    As A Yankee fan and a WWE fan I’m a bit torn. I don’t like having to guess when my show is on. On the other hand wrestling usually goes on the back burner for me once baseball gets underway. Opening day is usually within a week after WrestleMania. If Smackdown must be pre-empted I can’t think of a better reason than a Yankees game.
