The Entire Spectrum of Human Emotions, in 30 Seconds of Flipping Channels

Hmm. What's on the various flavors of HBO?

FLIP FLIP FLIP FLIP FLIP

Jeez, maybe I should use the guide.

DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN

“48 Hours,” hmm.

Waitaminute, there's an ESPN on channel 173? What's that it's saying? Is that BASEBALL?

SELECT

IT IS BASEBALL! IT IS! LOOK! IT'S “ZUL” VS. “CAR!” “ZUL” IS UP 4-0! IT'S BASEBALL!

YAAAAAAY!!!!!

Man, these Venezuelan League uniforms look ridiculous. Is that guy's name Coca-Cola? Of course not — it's an ad where the names usually go. Is it a conflict that the umpire has Pepsi logos all over him?

STILL! IT'S BASEBALL!!!! YAAAAAY!!!!!

I wonder if I'll know any of these players. Not this guy. Or that guy. Or those guys. Wait just a second … who's that on deck?

Roger Cedeno?

ROGER CEDENO!

FUCK THAT! I AM NOT DESPERATE ENOUGH TO WATCH FUCKING ROGER CEDENO! NOT YET! NOT IN NOVEMBER!

FLIP

[lots of gunshots]

Man, Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy are going to totally get Ganz and that big Indian guy.

[more gunshots]

Roger Cedeno. As if.

    Man, I wish I had ESPN Ocho or whatever channel that is. I'd watch 48 Hours of Roger CedeƱo in a heartbeat. Eddie Murray and Nick Willhite, too.

    I don't understand a word the guys on ESPN Deportes say, but I have been known to watch their baseball programming.
    Now, if only we can convince Spanish-language channels that it's only fair that they be forced to provide English-language SAP buttons…

    Me gusta mirar y escuchar beisbol en Espanol. Beisbol como debe ser.

    I watch Dominican, Puerto Rican and Venezuelan baseball every year. Otherwise I wouldn't even know Luis Polonia was still alive.
    I'm with Bicyclemom on this one.
