As I mentioned earlier, my tv now only gets the local channels. Its gone really well, probably better than I expected. Tonight however, I felt a bit of frustration that the local channels weren't airing the American League Wildcard game between the Texas Rangers and the Baltimore Orioles. I happened to think about the radio, and found that it is indeed playing on the KESN 103.3 FM station.
I had to download an app so I could listen on my IPod, which didn't take but a few minutes. With it parked in the speaker, it's coming across loud and clear. I find I like the play-by-play commentary, and also that I can move around the house and not be tied to a visual game. I also find that Grandpa Johnson has been right here in the room with me this evening. No, Grandpa and the Rangers weren't in the same era, but he was indeed a big baseball fan. I remember many visits to Granny and Grandpa. He had on his bib overalls, and was sitting in his recliner with the radio at his side. At the time, I had a hard time seeing the appeal of listening to a game on the radio, but you know, I'm enjoying it tonite. Since I went to The Ballpark last year, I have a nice mental image of the team on the field.
Hey Grandpa, want some popcorn?
