As you’ve undoubtedly heard by now, there was some kind of massive (nationwide) outage that impacted NESN and ESPN2 and therefore people who got up to start their day with a cup of coffee and the season opener could not actually see it on television.
We were among those who had to resort to listening to AM radio inside the house. Not cool, DirecTV, not cool.
Granted, we were already up at 6am, but I’m betting there were a LOT of people who set the alarm just that much earlier.
At least we won it, 10 innings later (not an easy win, and not a pretty one, but a win nonetheless).
