I desperately miss the MLB Network. We had to cut back on some of our extra stuff so we downgraded our television viewing package and lost the MLB Netowrk in the process.
I had a similar "issue" several years ago. Wife lost her job so we had to cut back. I suggested we eliminate her Diet Coke allowance and keep the DirecTV Sunday Ticket. I miss seeing the Steelers every week but I've taken to drinking Diet Coke with my rum when I mix it.
