Not such a smooth switch by CBS
Loved watching the Jets and Patriots on L.A.'s Channel 2, loved wondering how often Mark Sanchez was thinking about what a good decision it was in leaving USC. After all, the Jets are 2-0. The Trojans aren't.
And for a glorious moment (confession, as a native of suburban Chicago this made me happy) Channel 2 sent us SoCal viewers to the Bears-Pittsburgh game. Just a tease, just enough to make a few of our hopes rise. Then there was a clunky cutaway to the Chargers game.
This isn't a criticism of the game Channel 2 was showing. And this is with the understanding that it's possible to get all the NFL games by switching from our cable system to DirecTV. But, come on. This isn't a newfangled thing, switching to the game of contractual obligation. It shouldn't be so difficult.
