OK if you are tired of seeing Alex Rodriguez on the back page of the news and post please raise you hand. OK you can put them all down now. What is it about the press? Don't they want to work in October? If they bug A-Rod they can get him to a point where it can keep the Yankees from getting through the post season. Do we need to know that A-Rod is moving by Madonna? Do we need to know who he was with on Valentine's Day? I don't think so.
It will be interesting to see when Alex faces Roy Oswalt in the WBC how they will react after Oswalt opened his big mouth. Alex let your bat do the talking.
Lot of fans are disappointed with their new relocation assignments. Stub Hub has over 7000 seats per game on sale. I have a feeling they are going to be very surprised. As one of my fellow webmasters said be patient this year next year you can sit wherever you want. A lot of scalper seats will go unsold this year.

OK Yankee fans the President is about to extend the life of the primitive TV signal AKA analog until June 12. The reason being is that too many people are not ready for it. Mark my words the same people won't be ready for it then either.

Digital is a much cleaner and ghostless signal. It is far superior to the old analog signal. So why wait? It doesn't affect most views because most views have cable, a satellite dish or fiber optic TV connection anyway. It is for those Flintstones out there that are sill using the roof antenna or worse rabbit ears.

The government issued $40 coupons, limit of 2 per family, to help alleviate the cost. Sure if you buy you converter box in a store like CVS or Sears that would make you responsible for $10 to $20 per box. If you went to a place like Target it could cost you only $5 or just the tax at Walmart. (Tell me again why NYC is against Walmart?)
It is the same thing when they tried to push the metric system on us. It is much more logical than the English system. BUT they left people an alternative and they ignored it and it just plain didn't work.
If the actually need more funding to help the turnover then fine extend it. You would think the ABCs and NBCs of the world would help fund it as well. They don't want to lose their audience.
