Comcast and The Orioles Continue Fight

Watching Peter Angelos and Comcast duke it out in court over the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network is a bit like watching Stalin and Hitler in a boxing match. You’re not quite sure who to cheer for, both parties are evil, but you know you’re in for a good fight. The Orioles want to pull out of Comcast Sports Network in 2007 and move their telecasts to the newly-formed MASN which currently shows Nationals’ Games over the DirecTV network and on cable companies that are not owned by Comcast (which, at last count, was 3). However, Comcast isn’t so hot on this idea, and is now bullying the other cable companies (again, all 3 of them) to not pick up MASN. Angelos, being the fearsome whiner that he is, is bringing his army of lawyer goons into the picture, and Comcast has responded by doing the same. Expect this fight to be ugly. The only way baseball fans are going to win is if both parties happen to be in the courthouse when it is struck by a meteor.
