Welcome Saltydad! It's great to no longer be the senior poster on the forum
You're not the only one stuck with MASN'less Dish Network. If I swapped out for Direct TV, my wife would immediately see through any false motives I could put forth, and I'm stretching the bounds of Nats fandom as it is, in her eyes. Besides, putting Nats on TV everynight would be like putting a well stocked bar in an alcoholic's house, and I can only handle one out of control obsession at a time.
Look forward to your insights, and don't forget to stop by the game thread while games are in progress. There are worse ways to spend an evening than listening to Charlie and Dave while venting with your fellow Nats fans here.
So now that we have MASN on Dish, I hope things are quiet in the household, or are you deliberatly not watching all the games?
