Wow.
Didn't give me an assignment, I willingly took a promotion. I was living in bum**** Virginia... you know... where the 47% Romney spoke of live (yet still voted for him because they love jesus and hate queers). So Bakersfield is Rio De Janerio and Vegas love child compared to there.

I have a company car with a fuel card and can be in LA in two hours every weekend. Plus I just bought an 1800+ sg ft house with a pool for 159k. Can't find that in LA!

For some reason I thought you were living in NYC.

True, house prices are at the bottom in Bakersfield valley. But that has always been a hot, shitty dust bowl. But if it compares favorably from where you came from then I never want to go where you were before!

Weird because Fresno and Tulare are north of me.

The whole time I lived there not one of my friends from SoCal ever came to visit me. Just my mom and some of wifeys friends. I desperately wanted some to, not because I was lonely and really missed them, but just so they can see how ****ing crazy it is.

I always redneck characters in movies and shows were exagerations, until I actually met them.

I moved out there in 2001 shortly after college for my basketball career... one thing led to another and I was essentially "stuck" there for 11 years!

I don't mind the heat at all... except when I'm wearing dress clothes... beats 20 degrees with snow and wind.

LA is great and home, but I don't know if I would rather be there unless I was making about 70% more than I do here.

Re: Concern growing about Lakers games not being on TV

eh, obviously not as excitied now that I am getting the games anyways, though it will be cool to get the additional SportsNet programming.

In the end I got league pass for free and only missed one Laker game due to this negoitation. What's funny is they took $20 off my bill for 12 months, and he didn't really hesitate to do so. Makes me wonder how many other Laker fans they did this for? It might of been cheaper just to have given TWC what they asked for to begin with.

I read that about 15 minutes ago. I'll be calling DirecTV tomorrow and making the switch. **** Dish Network. What an awful company.

Re: Concern growing about Lakers games not being on TV

I called Dish Network in hopes that I could get a better deal on my current bill with the fact that they announced they weren't going to carry the Lakers channel. I was quite serious with my intent to cancel with them if they didn't provide me with an incentive to stay. So their best offer was twenty dollars off of League Pass. I was blown away that they didn't offer something decent, even twenty bucks off for six months of my bill or something would have kept me with them.

Oh well, guess I'll be finding a new provider.

Re: Concern growing about Lakers games not being on TV

I found this article interesting although its not directly related to the Lakers
Quote:
NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge on Wednesday allowed sports fans to pursue a lawsuit accusing Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League and various networks of antitrust violations in how they package games for broadcast on television or the Internet.

U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin in Manhattan said the subscribers could pursue claims that the packaging has reduced competition, raised prices, and kept them from watching their favorite teams located outside their home markets.

"Plaintiffs in this case - the consumers - have plausibly alleged that they are the direct victims of this harm," she wrote.

The defendants include Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, several teams in both sports, cable TV company Comcast Corp, satellite TV provider DirecTV, Madison Square Garden Co and some regional sports networks.

Re: Concern growing about Lakers games not being on TV

It should be all economics. I guess Dish figured they will lose more money by picking up the channel, resulting in either customers lost due to higher fees or lost revenue due to increased operating expenses.

If it makes sense to them fine, but every Laker fan with Dish not under contract should walk away. Unless they don't mind those crappy streams.
