The Sports Cable Rip-off
Not long ago, an important New England Patriots game failed to appear on my cable lineup. There was a way to pay extra for it, but the heck with that.
This game was a matter of utter indifference to me, but its absence visited trauma on a gentleman staying at my house. Given the exorbitant totals I was already paying for cable, the least I expected was The Game with which to pacify the maniac stomping across my oak floors.
