Apparently Peter the Greed (Angelos) is continuing his cheap ways and leaving his MASN sports channel without high definition equipment for the coming year which means that viewers of the Nationals or the Orioles will be watching standard definition programming this season.
Pop quiz - who are the only teams that will be broadcast in standard definition this season?
Ooops, I seem to have given that information away in the opening paragraph there.
It's not bad enough that Peter Angelos has basically completely and single-handedly destroyed the once proud Baltimore Orioles franchise, but he's doing the best he can to also destroy the Nationals in any way he can, in this particular case by keeping the Nationals broadcasts in embarassingly standard, standard definition quality programming.
Sports programming in general is a prime reason for viewers to run out and get themselves an HDTV set. Football looks gorgeous on HDTV broadcasts, and baseball does as well. Looking at a baseball diamond (field) in widescreen high definition glory is the way the game was meant to be seen.
Too bad Peter the Greed is too stupid, uh greedy, to spend a little money to upgrade his network to high definition equipment.
