American cable channels .. WTF???

So I'm in Chicago now visiting family. I had a little time tonight to catch the game on t.v. ... if I could ever find it!. I started my search at WGN. Cubs. Oh god no! I clicked on "guide" on the clicker (my sister has AT&T U-Verse). I start clicking through the guide. No sports until channel 300 something when I get to ESPN and such. 300!! Channels!! Until sports!! .. I continue looking for CSN. Up to 500.. nothing. So I think, I'll go backwards! I start at channel 1 and go down. This takes me to Channel 5000 or something. 5000!! WTF!! After missing an entire inning looking for this damn channel, I finally found a way to go to the "Sports" Category (via the "Menu" button instead of the "Guide" button; how stupid of me) and there I found CSN ... on Channel 741. How did I miss that? WTF? I last lived in the U.S. 7 years ago and cable channels seem to have bred like rabbits. I'm off now to go find the Pee and Poo channel. With 5000+ channels, I figure that's got to exist. WTF.
