When I asked why he did this, he claimed that the game was "over" and that if I didn't like it, I could leave. So, what I did was have the remaining food put in a doggie box and got home in time to see the last bit of a game that had been declared "over."

The bad thing is that I missed seeing the Sox score 4 runs in a comeback attempt that fell just short.

Have anyone else here ever had something like this happen to them?
Prior to 2006 getting a TV with the Sox game on in the LP/Lakeview area was like pulling teeth. Not quite the same problem as yours but still annoying.
