Whats Wrong with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?


The Red Sox are back in first place today and coincidentally are the FOX game of the week… unless you live on the west coast.  Then you get to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on FOX instead.  There are no other baseball games to watch because Fox has exclusivity on the Saturday timeslots for baseball games.  Aside from the horrible radioactive mutations and their unwatchable re-imagined cartoon look (these are not the TMNT that you grew up with) that’s what wrong with the TMNT. 


Generally I get to watch all the Red Sox games thanks to the MLB Extra Innings package on DirectTV, but the package doesn’t carry the exclusive FOX games.  I tried out watching the game online through the mlb.com web site, but my DSL is just too slow to make watching it bearable.  So I get to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles instead. Apparently it gets higher ratings for west coast fox stations than watching the first place MLB world champions.

    The first time I saw the phrase I didn’t know what it meant. Some time later I discovered it’s an anime something or other made in the country I live in. Anyway, I wish I could remember who it was that posted the first mention that I had seen of it, when I could only figure out half of what he was talking about. He wrote something like this:

    _ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I understand.

    _ Mutually recursive inline functions, I don’t understand.

  4. Three strikes…the previous commenters whiffed on the meaning of the post!

    The network exclusive games are quite annoying, especially since the ones Fox shows are typically of high interest (like a Yankee game) and if your Fox isn’t showing it because you don’t fit into "regional" coverage…(*cough*braves games*cough*) then you’re hosed.

    The flip side of that is funny though. I remember when I was living in Boston a couple years ago and a big game was on and it was a Fox night…Fox in New England pre-empted the American Idol finale for the sox game!
