If you're not blacked out, it's a national broadcast for you today. Maybe today will be less exciting than the last two games - by which I mean the Cubs build an early lead, pitch well, and win comfortably.

Boston and Tampa is the game that's on for me. Good thing the game's not on two other channels on Comcast here already or anything stupid like that.

I lucked out.....I'm in the FOX game viewing region........Clear skies, but it looks cold at Wrrigley..........hope it's not the cause of any added injuries.

Fox is stupid. Hey look, Samardzija didn't have any strikeouts in the first inning. Yay!

Blackouts suck. I'm going to just follow this thread and Twitter to follow the game - the overreactions are hilarious and awesome when you have no context.

Announcer just mentioned the movie "42"-----It premiered yesterday here. Went to see it. Steve Garvey was in the row just in front on me, meeting people, signing autographs and posing with anyone for pics. I leaned over to tell him the Cubs beat their rival Giants. He was aware and stressed the 9th inning comeback. Garvey was there for a Q&A after the movie. He pointed out how he met Jackie Robinson, Gil Hodges and other notables of that time. He was the bat boy at Tampa (ST camp). His father was the bus driver for the club......a few interesting tidbits.......
