The Teasing Fox Channel


So another baseball game is on tonight.

But our Fox channel didn't list it.

Hooray for Fox!

I thought, "YES, Fox is on my "Things I love" list!"

I thought maybe Wyoming was just sick of baseball. Great. Me too, Wyoming, thanks!

Because the Fox channel just had the regular Sunday programs listed. King of the Hill and The Simpsons and all of that.

"I don't understand," Tom kept saying as he looked through the guide. "How can they not air the game?"

Because Tom, I wanted to say, maybe like me they're SICK of baseball. Maybe they're tired of watching the men spit and take forever to hit the damn ball. I mean is it necissary for them to step back and unlatch their gloves and then relatch them before hitting again? Just HIT THE DAMN BALL.

Of course I didn't say that.

I just said, "Oh darn," in a cheerful tone.

Then I was pleased to find an episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8 that I hadn't seen before.


An adorable show filled with children.

I mean I don't know how Kate does it. I'd probably lose my mind.

But the kids are all so stinkin' cute.

Even Tommy enjoys it. He's a little surprised that there are so many children in one house.

I wish I could get a tummy tuck like Kate though.

I guess I have to pop out six kids at once to get someone to pay for mine too.


But guess what?

Fox WAS airing the game.

Tom went, "I'm going to check at six to see if they forgot to list it in the program."

And he switched it over and the stupid game was ON.



You're back on my "I don't like you" list.

Thanks a lot.

I thought I was going to have a baseball free evening.

Now I don't get to watch Jon and Kate Plus 8.

I told Tom that I am watching Desperate Housewives. I don't care what's going on in the game.

He said I could so long as I switched it over during commercials to check the score.

I have mixed feelings about the game.

On one hand I want the Indians to win. Because it'll make my husband happy. And because I don't want to hear how the Indians lost all night. Seriously, I have better things to do than listen to Tom rant about how the Indians really need to bring in better pitchers. Yes Tom, I KNOW Perez sucks. Yes, perhaps they should send them back to the minors.

On the other hand, if the Indians DO win, I have to deal with more baseball when he's off of work.

And I'm SICK of baseball.

Then he's talking about wanting to see the World Series since the Rockies are in it and games will be in Colorado. I think he'd have to drive like three hours or so.

Yes Tom, take off and enjoy a game and leave me home with the children.

That's perfectly fair.

Okay, Tom is pouting on the couch at the moment because the Sox are up two points.

This is just going to be a swell evening.
