Watch out for flying cable boxes

Seriously? They're telling me I won't be able to watch UW and Minnesota this weekend?

I realize Minnesota is winless in the Big Ten. But come on, it's the battle for Paul Bunyan's Axe.

For a refresher:
Number of Badger games Badgergirl was unable to watch this season because they were only being aired on the The Big Ten Network? 5
Number of games the Badgers played this season? 11

And folks, it's going to get worse once the basketball season starts, where something like 18 of the games are being shown on the network my cable provider refuses to carry.

Something must be done. Because Badgergirl? She's not so happy.

Note to the cable box. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Because you might get thrown out the window.

That's when you know you've gotta upgrade to satellite, I guess.

Sometimes definitely needs to happen.... this is getting rediculous! I don't know what I would do if I were you....

Seems like a television station in your area would pick up the game. Two weeks ago the Michigan/Michigan State was supposed to on the BTN, but a local ABC station picked it up and broadcasted it.

Call local bars to find it - that is how I watched the Buckeyes every time they were on BTN

I don't think the landlord will let me go with a satellite.

But! I think I might have found a solution to the Big Ten Network. One that doesn't involve spending multiple nights a week sitting in a bar.
