ESPNU, where are you?

For some reason related (of course) to money, our local Comcast does not carry ESPNU, the College Sports channel. This is a real bummer for fans. And for those who have to switch the surround sound to mono and tune in to the AM station which carries the games.

What a step back in time. It makes you want to nuke a hot dog or pop some popcorn just to have something to look at. We are so spoiled from watching the action on the big screen.

Well, not we're not being spoiled by Comcast . . .

Y'all use Comcast? So do we at work. Our Internet goes down regularly at least twice a day. No reason, except for possibly a break in a line that they can't locate. I'd sometimes like to nuke Comcast...or pop THEM one.

We use Comcast for cable TV only.

We have AT&T for DSL, the land line, and cellular. When At&T U-verse comes to our section of the country, we will drop Comcast as if it were radioactive. I can't wait.

David Pogue (Pogue's Posts? That David?) rated it some time ago. He wants it, too.

Our cable company only offers ESPNU on one of the higher tiers (in fact, I think you need the digital package). So we suffer through those games on the radio, too. Or go to a sports bar.

I telephoned to find out whether ESPNU was planned for the future. Nope. Too bad for us . . .
