So apparently some baseball fans filed an antitrust suit against MLB with respect to the outdated TV blackout system that so many of us love to bitch about. How did I not know about this before? At least I know about it now thanks to this interesting piece by Jeff Passan about where the suit stood as of yesterday. Passan indicated that there would be news on the case today, but as of this moment I can’t find anything more recent on Google. The legal scholars quoted in the piece give me hope that the ridiculous blackout thing will end. Just imagine: if MLB didn’t insist on these dumb blackouts, I wouldn’t have had any problems with yesterday and I could’ve actually watched the Phillies’ 8-run first inning.

Until tomorrow.
