Can't Blame the Sox For "Lost"

In a slightly amusing Boston Globe piece on people in the Boston area who don't care about the Red Sox, one non-fan is quoted as saying,

"During this past year's playoffs, or whatever they're called, one of the games preempted 'Lost' on ABC and I was furious," said Donahue. ''I told my roommate, 'I don't care that they talk about the team all the time, but when they start to mess with network TV, that's another thing."
That's interesting that Donahue had that reaction, considering that ABC doesn't televise the baseball playoffs, and hasn't since the early '90s. Nice try, though.

The local boston ABC station-channel 5 has a deal with espn to show sox playoff games when they are on espn for members of red sox nation that don't have cable but still want to see the playoff games. That may be why lost was prempted on our ABC affiliate channel 5.
