  1. I’m so disappointed. My 95 year old father – a life long Cubs fan stuck in Cardinal territory – will not be able to watch the Cubs on MLB Extra Innings this year. We just learned that it won’t be available through Charter Cable – the only choice in his assisted living apartment. While corporate interests may dictate who-carries-what, it does have real implications for the happiness of some folks who aren’t able to do much else to pass their time. This was one thing he really looked forward to each year.
