    Great news… I can finally get a Versus game on at a bar again! (Every bar I’ve ever been to has DirecTV, not cable).

    This is indeed good news. I suppose we will never know the terms which I suppose is ok, but it would be nice to know what they are so we can figure out why it took soooooooo long…

    Now we can back to normal life and complaining about the wonderful broadcast stylings of Joe Benihaha!
