Comcast wishes Sox fans Happy Holidays

New, comments

Dearest Comcast,

In the past we haven't gotten along all that well. You were difficult to deal with sometimes. You know this.

We had some good times together, though; Opening day, the clincher in Detroit, I even enjoyed those 20 games you showed of spring training ball.

This, however... This tops everything.

Chicago, IL - Comcast SportsNet, the television home of the 2005 World Series Champion Chicago White Sox, will provide its viewers with a special gift this holiday season entitled White Sox Holiday Celebration: Journey to the Championship presented by Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana Chevy Dealers.

This unprecedented, month-long holiday present to viewers will include replays of all three ALDS games against the Boston Red Sox, all five ALCS games against the Los Angeles Angels, plus, all four games of the thrilling 2005 World Series against the Houston Astros. In addition, Comcast SportsNet will air every game's accompanying White Sox Post Game Live, plus, a pair of 90-minute specials that will soon be made available to the general public on DVD: Sox Pride: The Story of the World Champion White Sox and the 2005 Official World Series Film. The announcement was made by James J. Corno, Senior Vice President/General Manager for Comcast SportsNet Chicago.

Beginning Thanksgiving night, November 24 at 7:00 PM, Comcast SportsNet will televise the first of its four airings of the 2005 Official World Series Film. On Tuesday, December 6 at 7:00 PM, the network will debut the first of five airings of Sox Pride: The Story of the World Champion White Sox. Starting Sunday, December 18 at 3:00 PM, Comcast SportsNet begins airing replays of every White Sox Playoff match-up starting with Game 1 of the ALDS vs. Boston.

I accept your apology and gracious gift of wall-to-wall bonus coverage of the Sox World Series run. In the future I will try harder to not to take you for granted. I don't know what I would do without you.

Yours Always,
The Cheat

I know what I'm doing Thanksgiving night. New Year's day should be fun too. There will be no college football that day (stupid NFL), but Game 4 of the World series is sure a nice way to make up for it.
