News so nice, he posted it....4 times. At least according to my RSS feed. Hooray baseball!

Sorry, it was a glitch in the matrix. Still working out a lot of the kinks from this weekend's upgrade.

NO worries Ryan. I love baseball, so the news deserves 4 lines of announcement. And is it just me, or is that groundhog sitting on a pitchers mound?

My first chance of the season to say YANKEES SUCK , YANKEES SUCK , YANKEES SUCK , YANKEES SUCK , YANKEES SUCK .

Ryan Said,
>>>Sorry, it was a glitch in the matrix.

Glitch? Matrix? Deja vu perhaps? Mr. Anderson, is that you? Mr. Smith maybe?

Sorry, couldn't resists... Matrix was on AMC over the weekend...

ITS ABOUT DAMN TIME. LIKE MARIO SAYS HOORAY BASEBALL.

SORRY ABOUT THE TRIPLE POSTS.

This must be the compelling content that is driving folks away from Howard and Sirius to XM. Hah.

Anonymous Coward please suck off Howard somewhere else. People are sick of the Stern bullshit.

Baseball season the best season period. Go Red Sox!

Funny, Sirius has Howard and.....well tell me when Sirius adds a second offering. XM is a well rounded service and baseball is a big part of it.

Haha Sirius has nothing else. Nigga please. We have NFL and NASCAR, the two biggest sports in the country. What have you got besides baseball? Golf? Oprah? Oh wow, what a COMPELLING content list. Some cunt, stupid golf, and boring baseball, or action packed NASCAR, hard-hitting football, and the best media personality in history, Howard. Thats why Sirius is the best radio on radio.

... talk about offensive posts. Funny how it's always a Stern supporter, eh?

Who is this Stern guy anyway? Oh yeah, the channel with all the ads on them and more old content than live programming. It's easy to forget since there's nothing there worth listening to.

Action packed NASCAR? I personally believe that is one of the most boring sports to watch next to golf. I can't imagine how bad it is on radio. But that's my opinion. Certain parts of a baseball game I find more exciting then a football game and I love football. What you find compelling is not what everyone finds compelling. Stern would put me to sleep because he is lame and uninteresting to me. So would NASCAR. Again that’s my opinion and I don't expect everyone to have it. It just seems like all these Stern people think Stern is the best thing since slice bread and everyone else should fall in line. What is so appealing about his program anyway? Andrew Wilkow is my favorite program on Sirius but I don’t go around saying every other show of his type sucks and if you don’t think that you’re an idiot. Which is what these Stern people do. I admit I can’t wait till he retires so this website can focus on something else. I enjoy reading what people think regarding various satellite radio topics but when every topic turns into Stern it just becomes ridiculous and retarded. An MLB topic should never turn into a discussion about Stern but it has.

How about XM having football, men's basketball, and women's basketball from all six major college sports conferences. I think that stands for something.

And I've had the opportunity to showcase my talent on XM by having some of my broadcasts on one of its many college sports stations as I'm fortunate enough to be an announcer in a BCS conference.

Now granted, there are a lot of good things on Sirius such as their 80's station and Octane to name a couple. Stern is pretty good as well but I can only take him from time to time. It's also nice to have a dedicated Rumbon channel on Sirius. Sirius rap stations are also pretty good IMO. And also, I travel quite a bit so I enjoy listening to the NFL games, and my friends that work in the NBA.

As for XM, I enjoy the college sports channels as I've mentioned. The dance stations are pretty good even though BPM is a shell of what it used to be. I enjoy some of the rap stations as well along with the many of the sports talk stations.

Both services have pros and cons. More pros though as it sure as hell beats anything on terrestrial radio. Hence, I'm glad to be a dual subscriber and will continue to be...merger or no merger. On my side, hopefully no merger because I don't want to see the Worldspace channels leave XM.
