I am sure there will be a whole lot more Rays flags and the like here in TV now that they are in the World Series.

Saw a neighbor's house with both an Indianapolis Colts and a Green Bay Packers flag up yesterday. I can just picture a couple shouting in one another's ear as the Indianapolis-Greenbay football game progressed yesterday.

Must have some of the same situations this week with the number of people from PA here in the Villages who also feel obliged to root for the team from about 120 miles away in St. Petersburg.

From this Red Sox fan's point of view: The Rays kicked our butts. They have a more complete team and I'm very happy that they made it. It was kind of a no lose from my perspective: my current team vs. my future team.

Default Tampa Bay Rays Talk

Just moved to the Villages from St. Petersburg, FL. Had no trouble watching Rays baseball on TV. Now I learn that Comcast here has a limited contract with Sunsports. Hardly any Rays Baseball available. Is anyone else frustrated? this is soon to be a playoff team.

The Rays are on SUN channel 41. It is hit and miss as to when they are on or blacked out. I click on 41 to see if they are on and watch them. If something else is on - oh, well!

And to answer your question - yes it is frustrating!! Especially when they are playing the Yankees and I can't watch them!!!!

Default Rays on Comcast

I may have to switch to Direct TV. If Comcast wants to compete seems like they would come around. If enough either complain or switch they will. That's what happened in Naples and other Florida Comcast markets. They now carry all Rays games that are broadcast on Sunsports.

Just remember those people who have the Football package with Direct TV and want to watch a game that is not sold out ( Tampa ) you will not be able to watch it, now that is a bummer.
