A funny thing happened on the way to your local bar last night. The pivotal ALCS Game 6 meeting between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays was replaced with the "Steve Harvey Show" -- which may have actually caused you to drink more.
A large portion of the 1st inning was missed -- which means baseball fans' first glimpse of the game had the Rays beating the Sox 1-0.
The problem was addressed and TBS explained the incident like this: "Two circuit breakers in our Atlanta transmission operations tripped causing the master router and its backup - which are necessary to transmit any incoming feed outbound - to shut down."
Game 7 is tonight -- unless of course TBS decides to run a "Bill Engvall Show" marathon.
